Hi, my name is Electra Willis. I am a Licensed Social Worker and a Monmouth University graduate in supervision for my Clinical License. Like many, I am sure that you are experiencing the weight and gravity of how life has so drastically changed. When you find yourself living in crisis, the impact creates a lot of fear, uncertainty, and anxiety. Add social isolation, disrupted work and family routines, cabin fever, and economic instability, and, understandably, your mental health is suffering.

Footprints to Feel Better
Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC
Verified
Footprints was started by a therapist who realized that often times the services provided to low socio-economic communities is lacking quality care. We noticed these communities where confronted with long wait times, disrespectful admins, and subpar treatment. The one and only purpose was to exploit the community for profit without providing the level of care deserved. Footprints began from the inspiration to provide quality mental health care to the poorest of communities and treating the clients of this community the same way a rich patient would be treated in a clinic treating affluent clients.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!!! I strive to create a non-judgmental environment for my clients where they feel welcomed, respected, heard, and have the support they deserve while collaboratively working towards their goals. The most rewarding part about being a mental health counselor is being able to witness individuals bettering themselves and overcoming obstacles whether they are big or small. As a counselor, I know that every individual is unique; therefore, I work with the client based on their needs and at a pace they are comfortable with, while also trying to challenge them in making steps towards their progress.
