Kareem was born and raised in Bronx, NY to a loving mother who in pursuit of a better life migrated to America from Kingston, Jamaica. Kareem persevered through the trials and tribulations of being raised by a single parent. These early struggles inspired his work ethic and passion to help those from similar circumstances. As a former police officer who patrolled high crime areas, Kareem witnessed the economic, social, and spiritual needs of disadvantaged communities. He obtained a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from UNC Charlotte and is working toward state licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor and Clinical Addiction Specialist. Kareem believes the core principles of counseling provide a nurturing and proactive approach toward advocacy, human development, and rehabilitative change among all people.
