Hi. I'm C.E. English-El, known by most as Ce. I've been a practicing Licensed Professional Counselor and Clinical Therapist for over 25 years and a Living Coach for over 10 years. My counseling style is eclectic and whole person centered with a wellness orientation. Not only am I good at connecting with people I enjoy the process of engaging, learning, growing and moving . My wealth of experience and exposure is grounded in the addiction treatment milieu where I evolved from a fledgling counselor to a director of clinical services for adult and adolescent inpatient and outpatient programs. I have authored and lectured extensively in the addiction treatment arena. Other areas of expertise include Emotional Intelligence (EI) development, Mindfulness appreciation, coaching well-being, relaxation response, self-care and family connections. Academically, I have a Bachelors degree in Social Work from the University of DC, a Masters degree in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University, and a post graduate certification in Counseling from Virginia Commonwealth University. I'm thorough in assessment and delivery of services with integrity and commitment. On a personal level, I'm a people person by nature and involved in this helping profession by choice. I’m a country boy from Long Island who’s been living the addiction recovery platform for over 30 years with the Florida sand between my toes and living with meaning and purpose.

Carl Jung once said, "One day You will grow up and the world will ask you who You are. If You don't know who you are, the world will quickly tell You." I believe the active choices we make, play a crucial role in shaping our sense of personal satisfaction, emotional confidence, and overall well-being. Changing the story, you tell about yourself, can have a profound impact on how difficult or easy the next few years of your life will be. Will Your story be one of courage, conviction and personal empowerment, or a repetitive tale of powerlessness? Will it be a story of accountability and healing, or shame? You are the only with the power to decide you matter. Empower Your voice. Redesign and refine...Choose freedom.

Usually, my clients seek therapy and counseling after struggling with challenges for days and sometimes months. Over time, these same challenges create maladaptive behavior patterns that must be corrected to facilitate change. However, my clients tend to dig in while inserting a host of new concerns. Albert Einstien wrote: "We can't solve today's problems with the mentality that created them" With this in mind, it is better to seek professional services and resources: Recognizing you're not alone in this healing process. I understand that therapy cannot solve all things of the past that challenge us, but clients can seek support, understanding, and better days. My passion is to help the world heal through community and humanity. I'm ready to help you define and rewrite your new beginning. This will allow you to sculpt the person you want to be.

I believe in utilizing a variety of therapeutic modalities to ensure that therapy is person-centered. There is no "one-fits-all" method to help a person overcome challenges or cope with things they have experienced in their lives. I strive to learn who the person is first in order to individualize treatment. I used a variety of methods to meet the clients needs, that may include structured activities as well as non-structured, open discussions.

Hello! My name is Carolina, and I am a licensed professional counselor (bilingual/Spanish). My greatest passion is helping others live their best lives because no matter who you are or where you come from, you deserve to live the life you CHOOSE! As a clinician, I help my clients gain the insight, skills, and tools to overcome life challenges and move toward healing and wellness. I started my counseling journey about ten years ago, providing psychoeducation and counseling to children and teens. I worked with families, couples, and individuals. Most of my clinical training has been in autism, multi-systemic therapy, and trauma, working primarily with the Latino population or black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC). In addition, I have extensive experience working with victims of crime and sexual assault and survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence, adjustment disorder/transitions, grief/loss, postpartum depression/anxiety, and loss through miscarriage. I recently began my journey as a doctoral student in counseling this past summer. I hope to continue growing my practice and making a positive impact in the lives of others. I am also certified in success and life coaching and love incorporating those skills into my work in therapy. I genuinely believe in the power of the mind and how important it is to care for ourselves and our mental health. I love being with family, reading, watching movies, and relaxing with my pets in my free time. I am a mother, wife, sister, and friend, and I'm so grateful for the people in my life and the opportunity to be part of others' stories and their path to healing. Please reach out if you are ready to take this step in your life. I am looking forward to working together.
