I have the heart to nurture, engage, and support people through their emotions and life experiences. I also have an eye for insight that helps me to develop others while encouraging growth.

Rhea is a proud mom of five growing sons #TeamBoyMom. Some of her favorite movies include The Shack, This Christmas, Set It Off, The Expendables, and The Equalizer.

Rhea also enjoys hanging out with her two sisters and their two best friends. While music speaks to her soul and the way she self-cares, one of her favorite songs is Back That Azz Up by Juvenile. 

Rhea is a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and founding member of, Mind, Body, & Spirit Marriage and Family Therapy PLLC. She received her Master’s degree from Syracuse University.

Jennifer Figueroa, Chief Operating Officer

Jennifer is the first in her family to graduate with a Masters Degree. I am of Dominican and Guatemalan descent. Being a Latinx therapist helps me connect with the BIPOC community and help them feel seen and understood. I can speak and/or understand their language. I consider it my superpower. Helping couples is my passion and it has been the highlight of my career. In my downtime I enjoy organizing and junk journaling, both are very grounding and bring me a sense of peace
