PEARL COUNSELING SERVICES
Inspired By The Power of Recovery
Pearl Counseling Services was established in 2019 with a vision to utilize my 32 years of professional experience to engage people in the behavioral healthcare process and especially African-Americans, who often do not pursue mental health services due to societal stigmas and a lack of trust in our healthcare systems.
I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker who has worked in private practice, outpatient, and residential care settings. My scope of practice includes Co-occurring disorders of mental health and substance abuse, family/relationship conflict, LGBT, Women specific issues, Domestic Violence and other informed trauma care. My therapeutic approaches to care are comprised of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
"Change begins with a vision and decision to take action"
- David Bornstein
In the therapeutic process I aim to empower individuals and families to find their truth, and live their best lives, through learning and developing skills that support their desire for growth and sustainable change.
