Charrity Kossin Executive Director and Head Counselor.
BIO: At the age of 21 years old, I found myself in the lowest place I thought I could be. I was scared, broken, and lost due to my drug addiction and as a result of my actions. I knew that could not be what I was destined for, I knew there was something more for me.
I began praying and was shown the passion I have for helping women who have struggled with similar life difficulties.
At the age of 25 I began putting my dream into action. I enrolled into school for addictions counseling. I did not know at the time, that this would be the start of God building my foundation to help other women. I graduated, with honors, with an associates of arts and a license in addictions counseling.
I then began working as an outpatient counselor in Wichita, KS. I wasted no time, however, as I immediately started working on obtaining my next goal.
I went to Tabor College in Wichita to work on a bachelor’s in Christian ministries. Through this program I learned who I was as a woman and how I was specifically gifted to help women who struggled with not only addictions, but the trauma’s and struggles that so many women face.
I graduated with honors in 2013.
After taking a short summer break to enjoy my new little baby girl and after being promoted to Program Director of the women’s residential substance abuse facility, I enrolled and began attending Liberty University to obtain a Master’s in Human Services Counseling; Christian ministries. I graduated in 2015 and have continued in, not only my position, but my passion of developing residential treatment programs and supporting women through a very critical time in their lives.
Now 2017, working specifically with women’s issues and addictions for the past 7 years, I have built my life around God, my family, and empowering and helping women realize their own strength and hopes by offering them holistic treatment; teaching them how to heal their body, mind, and soul.
My passion in life is to see other women overcome the stronghold of addictions and start to rebuild their life to reach their intended potential, just like I was encouraged and supported to do!
