Xihlovo Mabunda, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Sex Therapist

I hope you gain a safe, authentic space to explore, learn and lean into parts that have always been present but not seen. I want to foster a space that allows for profound improvement and change while welcoming joy and lightness.

My experiences growing up in South Africa led me to know that I could encourage people to invite their voices into difficult and meaningful conversations in non-threatening and empowering ways.

As a clinician whose practice is rooted in social justice, I emphasize clients’ rights to take up space and embody authentic connections with self.

Xihlovo Manbunda, MS, LPC Therapist DC

I love the ability to challenge and be challenged by others as much as I love my role as a therapist I hold in witnessing and celebrating change.
