Because We Care

Our Mission

Mmadu Wellness Center seeks to empower every individual to live a good or beautiful life by becoming the best version of themselves. We seek to promote health and wellness in every aspect of life focusing on your social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual, and physical well -being. In doing so we hope to diminish the health inequalities that currently exist and create a space where wellness is accessible and attainable by all.

Our Vision

Wellness encompasses various mutually interdependent dimensions: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, vocational, financial, and environmental. Attention must be given to all the dimensions, as neglect of any one over time will adversely affect the others, and ultimately one’s health, well-being, and quality of life. Mmadu’s aim is “personal harmony” that feels most authentic to us and facilitates our being our best selves. We naturally have our own priorities, approaches, and aspirations, including our own views of what it means to live life fully. Mmadu is the Igbo word for human and one interpretation of its meaning is “The Beauty of Life”, Let us help you find yours

Our Team


Tarren Everette

Doula, Educator

A University of Michigan alumnus with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a graduate degree in Education, I am an experienced Teacher, Licensed Doula, and certified in Reiki. I am also a practicing vegan and yoga aficionado.

I became a Doula, after studying abroad in Ghana and being made aware of the racial disparity in maternal infant mortality. I strongly believe these disparities can be reduced by making big-picture system related changes which include making adequate maternal infant care more accessible and providing women with an atmosphere where they are seen and heard and allowing expectant mothers to feel cared for and nurtured. As a licensed doula, I can offer you physical and emotional support that is grounded in knowledge based practices.

Reiki, Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy” is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." Tapping into this energy allows one to reduce stress, promote healing and become more capable of living a life that is happy and healthy. As a certified Reiki practitioner, I can guide you on that journey.

Yvonne Everette LPC-S, LCDC-I


As a Texas based Licensed Professional Counselor, my goal is to be an effective and empathetic counselor empowering individuals by assisting them to understand and overcome personal, social, and behavioral problems affecting their development or preventing them from reaching their greatest potential.

Working from a holistic approach that addresses the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of the whole person, my hope is to use my many years of experience to help individuals work through difficulties such as managing mental health symptoms and disorders, unemployment or underemployment, adjusting to life’s changes or starting a journey towards recovery.

I have a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and advanced graduate study in Rehabilitative Counseling but more importantly, I have over 25 years of experience working with individuals and encouraging them to become their best selves. As a woman, a working professional, and a mother, I get that life gets hectic sometimes. At the center of it all is you and you deserve peace of mind. I can help you find that peace and support you in reaching your goals.
