MEET THE FACE BEHIND THE POSTS
My name is Chelece, but my family calls me Lecie, and I’m excited to serve you!
Fun facts: I LOVE to cook, it’s therapeutic for me. I’m a beach bum, it’s my happy place. Coffee is my bestie for the restie (Starbucks to be exact). I’m not a fan of ice cream or sweets (I promise I’m not a weirdo y’all). I love being with my family, they mean the world to me. I have a lot of godchildren, nieces and nephews.
I’m a licensed social worker and therapist at a community mental health agency in NY. I love what I do and count it a privilege to serve others in this capacity. I love Jesus and I WON’T TAKE IT BACK, amen? Amen. I have a passion to bridge the gap between faith and mental health because…well, it’s necessary. There are people who are suffering in the pews, standing behind pulpits, greeting visitors at the door and operating through the lens of their trauma. Wanna know a secret? I was one of them!
I’m here to remind you that Jesus cares about your trauma. His love and care is not displayed through shame, anger, and resentment. While others may try to push this lie, hear me…that ain't the gospel. Jesus did NOT die on the cross and rise from the dead for you to feel condemned. Trust me, I know EXACTLY how you feel, but there’s transformation and HEALING through His word.
