About me

Hi, thanks for checking my profile, my legal first name is Beatrice, please join my family and friends in calling me Faith.

Overall, I tend to be informal as a counselor. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years of experience. While my official professional title is properly documented, I consider myself to be in the "human love and restoration business". This explains the varied things I’ve done professionally and personally. My sole purpose in a client session, or even in a brief interaction with another person, is to “add value ” in whatever manner this needs to happen. I consider it an honor and privilege to be welcomed into a person's life; consequently I want to make them glad we met.

I understand the value of putting ideas and concepts into writing to enhance communications, and for professional/personal growth. I am a confirmed contribution to two publications, "Seeing is Achieving, Invisible Walls & How to Break Through to Achieve Success”. (2013). And, as a contributor, editor and researcher for an innovative high school textbook, “Black History 365 An Inclusive Account of American History", (BH365.org) just published, August 2020.

It is a great pleasure helping clients empower themselves--assisting each person in uncovering their true self-worth and value. I find most people underestimate their abilities, while overestimating obstacles. This doesn't mean ignoring or minimizing real difficulties and even pain. However, I believe people are smart, creative and capable, as a gift of birth.

We work together to “remove the dross” -- issues impeding the ability to enjoy life fully. I love nature and often encourage clients to look at animals and how they cope with stressors in their environment. They do so without the added burden of things like guilt and low-self-esteem.

My philosophy as a counselor is to help clients release their "fun gene"--let’s talk about ways to bring a big smile to your face, despite very real challenges dogging your heels. In other words, I’m big on fun! It’s a default approach in most cases. I’ve found when we laugh out loud and be less serious, things tend to improve faster.
It’s a valuable cheat sheet; we talk about specific fun opportunities unique to each individual.

Since no two peoples are alike, I customize sessions for every client. While I occasionally use similar clinical tools, I enter each new client relationship with fresh eyes—open to what naturally manifest as the best approach .

As a result of doing a lot of professional contract work when my son was young (needed work hour flexibility), I gained experience in a broad away of people services and counseling. These include working with individual and couples, medical social work, a trainer in professional career development, and over 8 years working with military service members, couples and families.

I've also been a business owner in fields unrelated to social work; my family too has a history of business ownership, Because of this, I love encouraging clients to stretch and take calculated risk to reach new goals lying dormant in the soul. In essence, my goal is to help clients attain a higher quality of life, never living in fear of any kind—the sky’s the limit.

Finally, while I use a solution-based approach in counseling, we jointly decide on goals, plans and objectives--seeking to impose solutions backfires every time. Clients have "what it takes" to heal and feel better; I see it all the time and know it deep in my soul. I look forward to meeting you in a session where we can laser focus on how to bring more peace, joy and contentment into your precious life.

All the best,
Faith
