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.

When working with clients, I use a mind-body approach to increase self-awareness, self-compassion, emotional regulation, and tools to exercise mindfulness. Therapy works best when we can identify strengths and use this as a foundation of our work together while also setting a goal for psychological growth through hands-on activities that will empower the therapeutic process. In a world that is go go go all of the time, I believe it is beneficial to prioritize fostering a sense of kindness towards ourselves and our world, which has been shown to reduce anxiety, depression, and increase self-esteem and creativity.

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.

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.

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.

My experience includes Christian Counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Informed Therapy, Couples Counseling, Grief Therapy. While CBT provides a main structure for my approach, the foundation of our work is built on your story and the core beliefs you hold.

If you are looking for a safe, genuine, welcoming space, I trust you will find it here! I hope to have the opportunity to journey with you through this season of your life...

Greetings to you and all With a wish for good health and peace in your life. My name is Sherby John. I have been working and learning along this journey, we call life, just as you have. It can be a journey filled with joy and struggle. Have you reached a point where it seems there is more struggle than joy or feel stuck in the muck that seems to only get deeper or harder to transgress? Then maybe it is time to find new paths and options by having a guide on this journey. Therapy can be a vehicle for change and development of workable tools to assist in continuing with this journey. Whether you are dealing with Depression, Life changes, Anxiety, Relationships, Trauma, or a new medical or mental health diagnosis, therapy can be a useful mechanism for support, discernment, and information. I would like to provide you with a safe and welcoming environment and space to relieve yourself of these stressors through working on alternatives to current reactions to triggers or stressors in the way of continuing your journey, your way and at your own pace. Come in. Lets Talk. Lets get to work.
