Tarkisha says, “The helping profession allows you to see a lot. So many of us lack love, support, guidance, have no sense of peace or reasoning, and there’s so much more that has the potential to cause any person to feel as though they no longer have control over their lives, choices, and actions. Sometimes these stressors and barriers can be discouraging, but there is hope. There’s more to life, but you must want it. I’m here to help any person or family when they are ready to make changes that will enhance their lives and improve their functioning. Everyone has the ability to SOAR…everyone! Some of us just need a little more help in doing so!” #itstimetosoar
