Our Team

Juelle Washington, MHC-LP

I am a Mental Health Counselor and I believe a clinician’s role is to empower people to thrive by giving them hope. I graduated with a Master's degree from Nyack College and I have worked for 15 years with the NYC Department of Education. I'm passionate about helping individuals overcome adversities and discover their purpose.

Guillermo Pond, MHC-LP

After years of working in Corporate America and in Property Management, I decided to obtain a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. Under Mr. Roberts guidance, I have been able to develop an eclectic approach to counseling adults, children, families and groups. My chaplain license also enables me to help a wide range of people in need of mental, emotional and spiritual care.

Elaine M. Samuels, MHC-LP

I am a graduate of Nyack’s Alliance Graduate School of Counseling (AGSC)where I obtained my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. I also hold a chaplaincy certificate which enables me to help anyone who also needs spiritual care. Years of working in the fashion industry and my personal life experiences have moved me to transition to Mental Health Counseling. I believe individuals are diverse and unique, henceforth, as a therapist I prefer an eclectic framework with techniques best surrounding my client’s needs.

Dania Roberts, MLC (Master Life Coach), COO

My passion for life coaching has led to more than twenty years of empowerment for countless individuals. Through intimate conversation, cognitive behavioral technique and instruction my clients have been able to put practical advice in place and begin to see real progress in areas where they’ve been stuck. I use life experiences and professional training to help enlighten individuals so they can firmly plant their feet on the right path. Based on your specific situation I can help you move forward and achieve the goals that you thought were unachievable.

Jessica Maldonado, MHC-IA

In life we all need support. Our families, our lives, and the world we live in can be unstable. This instability may lead to low self-esteem, lack of confidence, anxiety, and fear. Often people do not know where to turn for help and lacking a support system may lead to adverse outcomes. Discovering this has made me interested in working as a counselor (particularly with families and children). I provide mental health support to those in need by building a safe and strong relationship with each client. My work combines training in mental health with a solid foundation of faith in God to facilitate the mental, emotional and spiritual healing that you have been searching for.
