As a master's level/pre-licensed therapist and a licensed Pastor, Sabrina's multifaceted experience allows her to meet people where they are and provide services according to their individual needs. As the Director of the Sanctuary of Hope Counseling Center, Sabrina seeks to continue to build the "Counseling Center" into a full-service facility that will be available to the community and meet the needs on the various levels. Encouraging healthy lifestyles through counseling, life coaching psychoeducation, training and mentoring, Sabrina's #noshamezone concept seeks to provide a safe space in the community to seek and get the help that encourages a healthy mental, emotional, spiritual and physical lifestyle.
