As the founding partner Ms. Claudia B.-Walter, CPPC, CTC began her career counseling those in need over 20 years ago. She started, as a volunteer providing simple rap sessions during bible studies with incarcerated youth, and supportive aides for those struggling with addiction. During this time period her  and her family  went through a monumental transition of divorce. While still providing supports to other's-she  sought counseling for herself and her children-this prompted her to take a reflective look at the impact she had while supporting others through  their "Journey's of Healing" the results were phenomenal-the testimonies of many prompted her to pursue a career. She believed she could be an instrument to aide many more in healing, and having a positive outcomes for their life.  

She utilizes the skills she has gained throughout the years to counsel, advise and mentor many; aiding them in their personal and professional development, and through their personal journey of healing, spiritual growth, and self-development and growth. She provides customized training to leaders of all statuses, businesses, organizations and provides corporate team development.

Our services have aided married couples and those seeking relationship supports for various reasons. Our services aide those suffering with depression and those looking for supports as they greige a loss, or are facing a transition in lives.
