I have worked with clients struggling with life issues, mental health challenges throughout the life span that include but not limited to: Areas of Addictions, Anger, Anxiety, ADHD, Alzheimer's Disease, Stroke victims, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Domestic Abuse, Men's, Women's and Parenting Issues, Codependency, Infidelity, LGBT Issues, Peer Relationships, Grieving, Trauma, Loss, Conflict, Self-Esteem, Sexual Struggles, Dementia, Autism, Issues Effecting Families, Couples and Significant Others. I still approach each person enthusiastically, with kindness, dignity & with great respect. My work increases your ability to feel, to love, to hope, to heal, and to succeed. Clients are helped to problem solve and live in joy and peace rather than in pain and fear. This process involves in depth intake evaluation as we work to uncover any difficulties that may be blocking your true potential. You will learn explorations of understanding purpose in life via mindfulness meditation, exploring and understanding thoughts, emotions, behaviors and the importance of true spirituality."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chece "Understanding Our Purpose in Life can make all the difference in the quality of your's and your family's life.  You can begin by giving this wonderful gift to your child, or you can start this magnificent journey later in life, it's never too late!    Remember, purpose is a major cornerstone in the foundation of a meaningful human life!

I help you to begin your journey toward self discovery, healing, conflict resolution, inner peace via an in depth intake evaluation to help us understand your strengths, weaknesses and potential barriers that may be preventing you from realizing your full potential. Not being able to get past either internal or external barriers is what usually prompts an individual to reach out for help.  But finding a well qualified, caring, effective, and kind professional is often vital to having a successful outcome.  I believe you have come to the right place! "
