Freedom Rings at Lakeview Health Systems | Dual Diagnosis Program for coexisting mental health and addiction issues. Mental health disorders have symptoms that are unpleasant and the addict will use alcohol and drugs in an effort to self-medicate the disorder. Drug and alcohol use offer temporary relief from psychological symptoms. However, it will make the mental health issue worse in the long run. Significant distress in an occupation, relationships, finances and physical health will often be evident in those who have a dual diagnosis. The lack of stability in mood and substance abuse make it almost impossible to gain control of his or her life. This is why a dual diagnosis patient must be treated at an inpatient detox and residential rehab for both the mental health issue and addiction.

Karen Klein, M.S., LMHC | Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Jacksonville, FL (904) 614-2353


Mandarin Counseling & Wellness Center | We at Mandarin Counseling are dedicated professionals committed to providing quality mental health services. It is our overall goal to enhance the quality of life for individuals, couples and families. Our belief is that all people are valuable and unique and should be treated with dignity and respect. While recognizing the potential for change, an assessment of the client’ emotional, physical, spiritual and life experience is provided in a caring environment. We believe that our physical and emotional selves are directly linked, and thereby affect each other in both negative and positive ways. Therefore, emotional pain is our body and mind’s way of letting us know that something needs our attention. If we choose to accept responsibility for our health in this way, we will be aiding ourselves toward our natural drive for wellness.

Possible Self Counseling, PL | My belief is that all of us, no matter our walk of life, have a unique and powerful story. Within that story is the person that we are, along with all of our possible selves. Life can come at us from all directions. When we have the tools and the understanding to work with that life in combination with our story, we can reach our greatest self.
I'm a partner, mother, student, and teacher and have lived in the Jacksonville, Florida area for 13 years, originally hailing from Denver, Colorado. I have a M.S. in Psychology and a M.S. in Mental Health Counseling. I'm currently working on my Doctorate in Human Services. My expertise, as well as my doctoral research, focuses on enhancing better counseling education protocols for mental health counselors working with GLBTQ clients and enhancing community support for human rights for all. I am a registered mental health counseling intern, Florida State # IMH10157, under the supervision of Edna Schaefer, LMHC, Florida State # MH80988. I am in private practice and have weekday, evening, and weekend hours. I am located across from the Orange Park Mall.
I am an American Counseling Association member and am certified as a rape crisis hotline counselor. I have worked in both private practice settings and residential treatment centers. Specialties include working with GLBTQ couples and men and women with anger, self esteem, and anxiety issues. Treatment preferences are eclectic, focusing on humanistic, psychoanalytical, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).
I am passionate about helping and supporting people in finding their best self and believe that the relationship between client and counselor can be a therapeutic tool to reach such a goal. You are the expert in your life. My job is to help shine a light on that life and help you walk to where you want to be. Are you ready?

POLITICS

Campaign for Southern Equality | Across the South, LGBT people lack basic legal protections, face robust opposition to our rights and have limited resources for advocacy. LGBT people in our region are also at an elevated risk of poverty. Beyond this, the South receives less than five percent of the total annual funding that goes to LGBT organizations nationally. Factors like this contribute to the commonly held belief that the South is “unwinnable” when it comes to LGBT rights. But we hold a different view. First, we believe there is a pressing need for advocacy, legal and crisis response services for LGBT people in the South. Second, we believe that LGBT people and allies in the South are uniquely positioned to accelerate winning full equality on the federal level by directly resisting discriminatory laws and systems. Third, we believe that every person – including those conflicted about or opposed to LGBT rights – can become an ally. As a result, we’re taking a new approach, building upon a rich legacy of civil rights organizing in the South and working in close partnership with other LGBT and civil rights groups.

PRIDE

Ancient City Pride, St. Augustine | The Board of Directors for Ancient City Pride, Inc. are asking you, the community, to make the 2013 Pride Festival a reality. For the several years we have run our pride on a shoestring budget with very little support from the community with only a handful of volunteers. As has been evident since the formation of Ancient City Pride, we are growing. The 2012 Pride Festival was what we believe to have been one of our biggest ever. While it is certainly our biggest expense. We realize that next year will be even bigger, however, the bottom line is that without more community support we will not have a festival next year, plain and simple. That community support comes in many ways, volunteering, fundraising, helping to gain respect and acceptance in both St. Augustine/St. Johns County.

Lola's Burrito Joint | We believe our menu is pretty unique. Our sauces are made with fresh ingredients. All proteins are cooked to order, so... that’s not going to be quick. Remember...Fast is not good and good isn’t fast! (Just ask Dr. Ruth). If we are slammed, lunches could be up to 30 minutes for food, dinners 35 to 40 minutes. Of course, Mom always said under-promise and over-deliver, so it could be a hell of a lot quicker. Ask the server “How’s’ the kitchen runnin?”.... Separate checks take time... 1 minute per person/ per check is what you should plan for, so 10 people = 10 minutes... if you are on lunch, get your check early. But.... we digress.... Back to the food. Our stuff is original, the flavors’ unique. So please order wisely. Ask your server any questions before ordering. There are too many hungry children to be throwing food out. All our food is made to order, fresh... there’s veggie only options / meat options / big portions / tiny portions / light food / heavy food / 1 foot, 2 foot, red foot, blue foot... LOL. What we are saying is please order from our menu. Thank you again for visiting, we hope you enjoy everything!

RETAIL

Bali Cargo Company | Bali Cargo Company opened its doors for business in 2004 by owner/buyer, Kim Rogers. As the name implies, our products come from the island of Bali where the Artisans & Craftsmen from all the islands of Indonesia converge to create a spectacular marketplace of handmade Housewares, Jewelry and Furniture. Every year we spend months handpicking each and every item to fill our stores. I personally visit each shop, working with the shop owners and families to create new product. These trips turn into adventures as I strive to bring the look and feel of Bali to our stores in Jacksonville and St. Louis. Bali Cargo Company is a member of what we call a "cottage style" industry with most of items being made in the Balinese homes or small workshops. The Balinese live communally where extended families live and work together. Mom, Dad, Grandparents, cousins and siblings all have a hand in the running of the business taking great care to ensure that not only the quality of our products but the environment in which they are made.
