Dr. Dawn LaCosta established the counseling and wellness center in 2001, providing clients multiple professionals who can ensure that they have the resources to obtain maximum spiritual, emotional and physical wellness. "Together you will evaluate your personal and unique situation and then prepare goals-make progress-get results- enjoy a life of fulfillment, contentment and peace. We do this by building a relationship with each of our clients, earning their trust, listening to their hearts, asking life changing questions, paying attention to and caring about the little things that matter" Dawn stresses.
What is most unique and effective about their counseling is that they are a team at New Dawn. They have a yearning for comradery and when the common goal is to help others, they can get out of their own way to effectively do so. The women met through church, and as represented through their work, they have been positive and proactive about touching people's lives ever since.
New Dawn Counseling and Wellness Center has already had such a positive impact, however, they are determined to expand their efforts to approach financial, legal, health, etc hardships. They have the vision to further develop what the community already has to offer. For example, counseling in schools has been cut from the budget, and New Dawn can fill that gap. Jessi hopes to work with Somerset Christian College to gain interns and bring young inspiring minds into the field. Some upcoming events the center is conducting include family and children's workshops and New Day Divorce Recovery. New Day Divorce Recovery is a spin off of their previous Fresh Start Program which will be available for women and children.
Dawn, Jessi, Kelly and their team's passion is reflected in the personal attention that is given to clients. With the power of hope, health and healing, they are getting people back to who they truly are and giving them the opportunity to grow and blossom from where each individual is planted. At New Dawn Counseling and Wellness Center these three women and their team invite you to experience life as a gift because it is important to make the most of it and to write your own definition.
