OUR CLIENT ROSTER INCLUDES
founded by Tirrany Thurmond
Idaltu Counseling & Consulting LLC is an educational consulting firm that specializes in fusing the healing practices of mental health counseling with social justice advocacy and antiracism education to identify and dismantle institutionalized practices of oppression.
Since 2016, Idaltu has provided guidance to schools, non-profits, corporations, and religious organizations on how to resolve inequitable policies, practices, and processes. We collaboratively design strategies that promote environments that are racially just, safe, and inclusive for all stakeholders.
We specialize in creating, delivering and promoting tailored professional learning opportunities and resources.
The word Idaltu represents our sacred ancestry as human beings - our emergence as a species and our birthplace of Africa. Our ties to our original selves. Homo sapiens idaltu, now extinct, live on in their imprint within each of us. “Idaltu” is from the Saho-Afar word meaning 'first born'. The first of a new generation of beings, thinkers, doers and healers.
