Thanks for the opportunity to reach and uplift others just like me. I was a teen mother who was constantly told that I would never be anything more than a welfare statistic. It took me a while but I proved them all wrong. If this teen mother can do it, ANY ONE can. My book closely chronicles my life as a teen mother in an abusive relationship, adultery, being the other women, and other drama.
I am a Mother of three, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist to many, an Author of one, and a Child of the only One true living God. I am also known as Dr. Gibson, Dr. Cornelia, Dr. C. or just plain Cornelia. If I am going back to my childhood roots in Richmond, CA, then you would know me as Annie. I have a B.A. in Psychology, a M.A. in Counseling Psychology, and a Ed.D. in Counseling Psychology.
Now that my God has carried me through my long educational journey, I am being lead to tackle the entertainment arena. My long term plans include presenting my novel Surviving Broken Promises as a Stage Play. This will not be like any other stage play in that it will offer a twist that I have not seen presented in any other play. The twist is something that I am sure both my father (God rest his soul) and my Father God will be proud of. After all, I have learned from both of them to think BIG, dream BIG, pray BIG, and then MAKE IT HAPPEN!
As I said, “my plans” are for the future but every day God puts other people, places and things in my life that gets me closer to Him. So whatever His plans are for me I will follow.
When I am not working on a writing project then you will find me doing some type of counseling. I have co-facilitated court ordered anger management and parenting classes. I have provided teen counseling services at local nonprofit agencies. I have provided counseling services to children and families and victims of crimes though a local private practice.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in working with people who have had the unfortunate reality of being a victim of a crime. If this is you please let me help you get your life back on track. I also help with relationship problems, careers, and teen issues. I also provide direction, leadership, and coaching to a local home for teen mothers. Last but not least, I provide counseling services to youths and their families through Mount Calvary Baptist Church.
Counseling and motivating is not only my passion but also my calling in life. What is yours? Let me help you figure it out!
