“Psychological patriarchy is a "dance of contempt," a perverse form of connection that replaces true intimacy with complex, covert layers of dominance and submission, collusion and manipulation.
It is the unacknowledged paradigm of relationships that has suffused Western civilization generation after generation, deforming both sexes, and destroying the passionate bond between them.”   -Bell Hooks
I'm Miles Hall LMFT, MHP, CHt
Diversity Speaker, Expert on Inclusion, Experiences of Historically Disenfranchised Peoples, and Relational Conflict Mediation 
Conflict Mediator | Couple, Adult & Family Therapist | Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist | TeleHealth Clinician | Life Coach

My life experiences and education have clarified my commitment to become a culturally competent professional that advocates for anyone seeking & committed to change in their life or current situation.

Opportunity has materialized for me through the gifts an education provides, and although the learning process is challenging I approach it with an understanding of its power to turn distress into success.

I understand that life presents us at times with seemingly insurmountable challenges however, regardless how formidable the challenge, when presented with skilled support, and unconditional positive regard the human spirit can rise. 

Contact me to be a Guest Speaker or to participate in your workshops , trainings or events.  

The bravest acts at times demand the most vulnerability and you are Brave!  -Miles
