Maria Marcon, M.S, discovered her passion for counseling and helping others while working as an Adjunct Professor for a local community college in Orlando, Florida. The interaction with the students and her work as a professor led her into pursuing a career in counseling. 

We have a deeper sense of commitment & purpose to affect societal change on a larger scale. Our vision consists of developing a space where individuals, families and the local community can not only come together to help, support, and enrich each other's lives, but also receive much needed assistance and support with mental health care and related services.

Kesha Martin, MA began her private practice at Hope and Harmony Counseling Center, where she began as an independent contractor. After starting her solo practice in 2015, doing business as Renewing light, Kesha began to have  a much greater vision for the future. 

We are a woman and minority owned counseling and advocacy service located in San Antonio, TX. Our mission statement is part of our name, “Advocacy for Community Enrichment;”  We hope to facilitate social awareness and encourage healthier lifestyle changes through our mental health services.
