Cameo Mead, DCMFT, LPC, EMDR Certified
I approach all things holistically and do not believe in "I cant." I believe we are all in a system beginning with family and extending to our world views and behaviours. I began my journey serving in the United States Navy in helping people and doing my part. I was a police officer in Florida and in Texas for ten years. I worked in Corporate fields and became a mother at 25 years old. Being a mother was and is one of the most important jobs that I have ever had. I am a Christian and love nature and animals. My heart bleeds the older I get for the hurt and unheard both people and animals. I want to part of the change beginning in ones view of self.
