Mental Health + Wellness Resources
Hi, I'm Ali! I have a passion for making mental health resources more accessible. I'm a student at George Mason University, finishing up my M.Ed. degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a member of the Pi Gamma Mu International Honor Society, and a member of the GMU chapter of Counselors for Social Justice. I looking forward to opening a holistic private practice in the near future! I wanted to create a resource page for the many requests I get for referrals to mental health + wellness practitioners of all kinds.
