About me

Hi. I'm C.E. English-El and known by most as “Ce”. I've been a practicing Licensed Professional Counselor and Clinical Therapist for over 25 years and a certified Life Coach for over 10 years. My counseling style is eclectic and whole person centered with a wellness orientation. Academically, I have a Bachelors degree in Social Work from the University of DC, a Masters degree in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University, and a post graduate certification in Counseling from Virginia Commonwealth University. Not only am I good at at connecting with people I enjoy the process of engaging, learning, growing and moving. In the realm of marriage, family, and couples counseling the dynamics of the family or the couple is the nucleus. All initial efforts are focused on reintegration of the members into a harmonious working family unit. If it's determined that members aren't able or willing to work through relationship barriers efforts will be focused on creating an amicable separation. I'm thorough in assessment and delivery of services with integrity and commitment.

On a personal level, I'm a people person by nature and involved in this helping profession by choice. I’m a country boy from Long Island who’s been living the addiction recovery platform for over 30 years with the Florida sand between my toes and living with meaning and purpose. .

C.E. Is a highly skilled therapist for couples needing guidance and direction. He is a big personality as well which made our sessions enjoyable. We came a long way with his coaching and gentle ways of holding us accountable. We highly recommend him.

He is calm and accommodating. When we had internet issues, he was patient to switch to audio and back to video. He is soft-spoken and chill which made me comfortable instantly. He is practical as well.

We worked with C.E. for about 12 sessions - he really helped us work through our relationship issues. He's great at explaining things in a fun, simple and profound way. His words are succinct and poignant. He's like our wise uncle! We liked his style - he had a structured plan for us, plenty of actionable insights and was very receptive to our concerns. He has a wonderful sense of humor and made us crack up many times during the sessions.

Work with me!
