About Khadijah

Khadijah Tishan Washington is on a mission to heal generational trauma .

She  spent over 10 years serving as a licensed mental health provider and strongly  identifies as a helper and healer.  Since childhood, she was sensitive to the emotional needs of others.

Khadijah  was born into chaos, experienced poverty, witnessed domestic violence, mental illness and trauma.  She was determined to figure out how her family  and even the generational patterns that are passed on.

Even after therapy, education and clinical experience she found herself on a journey  of self healing.

In the lowest point of her life, marriage falling apart, underemployed, broke and burnout a shift occurred.

 This crisis created opportunity and everything changed.  She wanted to be REAL!  Khadijah committed to breakout of the generational trauma, broken relationships, poverty, and mental illness.  She began  heal, grow and help others.

In May 2020 she published REAL Radical Empathic Acceptance of Live; How to Live and Serve Abundantly. REAL is our wake up call to live a life of surrender in the awareness of our purpose.  I became committed to transforming  others  into generational trauma breakers and  focusing to most essential tool of radical empathy.   Khadijah is on a mission to help others use radical empathy to change hearts and lives.
