Ida is passionate about helping adolescents, adults, and couples address their unique challenges and create life balances with improved coping skills for a fulfilling life. She specializes in depression, anxiety, addiction, life transitions, problem solving, relationship issues, and coping skills. Ida completed her Master of Arts (MA) in Agency Counseling at North Carolina Central University. She has a family and lived experiences balancing the unique developments within family life. Ida has continued her skill building and has completed the nationally approved Stephen Ministry training for faith-based counseling and support.

You do not have to process this challenge alone. Ida is available to help you. Life cycle events occur and may create stress. Varied feelings present and are processed throughout the life cycle.
