Faye Bonnick Counseling
a Center for Healing & Recovery

The Faye Bonnick Counseling Center for Healing and Recovery is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2017 in loving memory of Ms. Faye Bonnick and serves teens, adults, couples, and families to help them navigate through painful feelings, setting personal boundaries, anxiety, depression, grief, anger, sexual trauma, and sexual addiction through our certified and qualified counselors. 


We uniquely work to accommodate clients of various economic backgrounds, so everyone is able to access the clinical mental health therapy services they need to move through trauma and experience recovery.

Faye's Story

Faye was a strong believer and follower of Christ, who experienced her own personal journey of healing.  She believed that the process of healing from trauma and emotional brokenness is God’s way of leading us to “rivers of living waters” (John 7:38).  
 

Faye touched the lives of so many through family and friendship. She loved connecting with people and encouraged others to do the same. On January 5th, 2017, Faye passed away at the age of 69.  The Center was created by her children to honor her as a mother, grandmother, friend, and now “angel."

Therapeutic Speciality Area
 

  • Porn addiction and sexual offenders

  • Couples therapy

  • Teen sexual recovery group

  • Anxiety

  • At-risk youth

  • Sexual relapse prevention

LaToya Wells, LPC, CSOTP, is a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider (CSOTP) specializing in treatment for porn addiction and those with a sex offending history. Porn and inappropriate sexual urges do not have to run your life. Anxiety does not have to be permanent. However, to have healthy relationships and intimacy, you first need a healthy heart and mind.

 

You may not have been raised in the best home or with both parents. Your relationship choices and career path may not match the American dream, but if you're willing to shift your focus, you can find purpose through your pain and lessons from your losses.

 

If we partner in therapy, you'll learn to identify your triggers, create healthy boundaries for better relational and sexual experiences, and develop confidence in your ability to recover from stressful situations such as conflict, relapse, or anxiety flares. In addition, male teens can process their road to recovery and implement practical tools alongside supportive peers in our group setting.

If you find yourself emotionally worn out or stuck in weariness with no opportunities for growth and need life maintenance. I am here to offer you hope. I work with individuals and couples to help you overcome troubling experiences to find your inner strengths. I have provided pastoral assistance to individuals, couples, and groups during my 15 years in ministry.

My educational journey has now equipped me with psychotherapy and clinical tools that can provide possible treatments for unanswered questions and/or behaviors. I bring expertise in communication barriers, premarital counseling, self-esteem, and spirituality.

Today would be a great move in taking a step in a healthier direction. If only to see how things may be different!
