Lory Toussaint



Hello, my name is Lory Toussaint and I am a Mental Health Counselor. I currently work at a substance abuse rehab center and being able to change someone’s life is very rewarding. My end goal is to have my own practice as a counselor so working there is an amazing opportunity.  I have become more aware of the symptoms and solutions which I know will only make me a better counselor and leader. Working for this company has also put me in contact with people from a wide spectrum with intricate histories and addictions. I plan to obtain my license in Mental Health Counseling in the near future.

In addition to work, I am also a business woman. I am one of the owners of The GEM Talent Agency located in Fort Lauderdale, FL.  This is a licensed boutique model and talent agency founded in 2016. Its mission is to inspire, encourage, and enhance their talent’s ability to express their art. You must be wondering how I own a business, and work full time, well I always say “you can accomplish anything you put your mind too.”

The purpose of my blog is to share my story,  show people ways on how to deal with tragedy, inspire others, and remind people that despite their circumstances they can overcome any challenges. Life isn’t easy and sometimes the strongest people need a little of help to work through some of life’s challenging problems. I want to break the stigma of mental health and want people to know that it is OK to seek counseling.

In addition to my blog, I will be documenting all the different places I travel too every year. I love visiting new places and learning about different culture.

I really hope you guys enjoy my posts and if there’s any topic you’re interested in reading about or if you have any questions, please email me at lory.toussaint16@gmail.com
