Effective Mental Health Care Support in a Virtual Setting

A Compassionate, Understanding, and Supportive Counselor

Life is not a bed of roses. There will be times when it will seem like you are walking a long, winding, and difficult road. Whenever you are feeling the struggles that come with toxic relationships, emotional stress, or life-changing trauma, it doesn’t mean the end of the world. You don’t have to face those hardships alone. Let me help you sort things out and show you how to deal with them in a positive way.


You can count on me to provide you with non-judgmental and welcoming support. Having more than 15 years of experience in mental health counseling, I have helped countless individuals throughout Arizona, Florida, Georgia, and Kentucky who have faced a wide range of difficulties in life. I do this through virtual counseling sessions and support groups for people undergoing a life transition.


With my guidance, you can rest assured that you will see and reach the light at the end of the tunnel. Connect with me at Speak Your Peace today to start living the life you were meant to have. 


About Me

Nerissa M. Pratt Franklin

I am a licensed mental health counselor who has been practicing for 20 years. During those 20 years, I had the pleasure of working with individuals and families going through all kinds of challenges in their lives. I believe that we are going to experience hardships in life but we will get through them. After certain challenges, we don’t go back to being “normal.” That is where we learn to adapt, and depending on the outlook we have on our new “normal,” we can still have a good life.


I am here to guide you in developing coping skills to deal with the emotions you are experiencing due to the challenge you are facing. We will work together to tap into your inner strengths and build on them to empower you.


I am certified in cognitive behavioral therapy but believe in using a blend of therapies to meet the needs of my clients. Sometimes you just need a little help through a tough but brief period of time, yet you may also need ongoing support long-term. Either way, I would love to work with you and help you navigate through it. 

Mission Statement

My mission is to be able to reach people who are going through life transitions and provide them with the support they need.
