A Word

From Our Founder

As a Black woman and counselor, I am blessed with the opportunity to work with a broad variety of people from many cultures, experiences, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds. My life has been rich in experience, enhancing my ability to empathize with others. In my experience I have learned that life and its struggles do not discriminate. Everyone has experienced the doubt, wavering of faith, loss and sometimes sadness that can come from everyday life.”

– Dr. Megan Pickens, LPC-S
