Annette Soto, was born and raised in New York City, exposed to a melting pot of cultures, different ideologies, and many different kinds of families. Coming form a broken home, where divorce was not managed correctly and society imposing a beauty different from her own she looked for ways to cope and manage, sometimes coming up short. She recalled all the times she needed someone to aid in her path to face fear and pain. Annette took a job in a bilingual school as an English teacher and found that teens/children connected easily with her. Working in the private and public sector of education she felt moved to be something more than a teacher. (dysfunctional families, children with learning disabilities, insecurities, bullying, suicide, etc.) As she grew older and saw injustices due to race and social status, she decided to become a lawyer. She began studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.
A change of personal events caused Annette to leave and go live in Puerto Rico. Insecure of her abilities at the time and lack of financial stability she changed her professional goal, she still wanted to help others in society and changed her major to Sociology with a minor in Criminal Justice. She returned to college and obtained a Masters degree in Counseling and completed her LPC.
Annette feels a calling to guide and orientate others through difficulties strive to continue to grow and learn in the field and provide a safe environment where clients are not judged and accepted. After working some years as a counselor in Puerto Rico, she communicated with a friend from elementary school and they connected instantly. They married and Annette moved to Georgia with her furry son, Cameo, and now are a family of four with two four-legged children.
