Desiree' Mayo, LAC

Licensed Associate Counselor

I am passionate about providing quality care for others. I aspire to treat everyone with respect and value. As a counselor, I take a holistic/client-centered approach by meeting the person where they are and strive to gain a biological/psychological/social/multicultural understanding. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches and interventions to provide services that can help anyone develop and complete goals, increase self-esteem and build self-worth, and find more balance/peace in this chaotic life.
