Practice Information

Here at The Heart of Counseling and Wellness, PLLC, we walk with our clients through their journey to healing. Our vision is to conquer the mental health territory at the community level. We aim to expand and grow mental health services across generations and cultures—from young to old, from those born here to those who traveled thousands of miles to live here.

We know some clients’ journey to healing features the stigma of mental illness. We destigmatize these issues, especially in minority communities, and advocate for those who cannot do so for themselves. Our approaches help clients decrease the time spent on healing by working collaboratively to utilize our strengths. We empower every person coming through our doors or joining us for online sessions.

We provide outstanding, professional representation with timely responses, courteousness, and a knowledgeable staff. The Heart of Counseling and Wellness—a company of people who pride ourselves on being the very best!
