For the past 17 years, I have been helping people with mental illness, love problems, divorce struggles, rejection, legal complications, and court cases; more often than not, I help people in uniting with loved ones. I work mostly on the phone and in some cases clients come to my office. My services are based on a blend of the fields of Anthropology, counseling, education, and shamanism. I am a Haitian shaman also known as Vodou priest; in Haitian Creole a Vodou priest is called Houngan. I am a certified mental health clinician and counselor accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). I am also a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) as well as a member of the American Mental Health Counselor Association (AMHCA).
For those not familiar with the Vodou tradition, I offer a brief description on this site together with a summary of my role as a guardian in the Vodou tradition. Thank you for visiting Lakou Papiyon.
