“I am willing to heal. I have the courage to heal. I am ready to be whole.” 

– Iyanla Vanzant

You did it. You have taken your first step towards healing. Change is not easy. And let’s face it, we all have had things happen to us in our lives that have changed us in some way or another. Some of us need that additional support to help us up when we fall.

We have been conditioned to think about our lives in certain ways. To love a certain way. Or even believing that you deserve what has happened to you. But what if that way of thinking is not true, toxic, unhealthy, or holds you back to fully becoming who you are destined to be?

It’s not easy but if you are willing to invest in yourself, your mental wellbeing, or even spiritual growth, the transformation you’ll see will be well worth the healthier you.

I would love to walk alongside you during this journey of healing. There is a better, healthier version of yourself where trauma can become your triumph and healing can become possible.  

My name is Maryam Thomas and I am a Limited Licensed Professional Counselor. I have spent numerous years working in various mental health settings assisting underserved populations in diverse communities. I have gone through several professional development training sessions that have helped prepare me and kept me knowledgeable about things that are happening in our and surrounding communities.

I’m honored to be able to walk alongside adolescents and families to listen and provide a space where everyone can be heard. My passion and focus are to work with you to identify problem areas towards positive change for a healthier lifestyle.
