Destiny Foster, LAC

Destiny Foster is a Stockton University graduate student, currently studying for her Master’s degree in counseling.  She graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in the Health Sciences with a minor in Holistic Health from Stockton’s undergraduate program in 2020, with the original intent of becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist.  However, along the way, she began to recognize the importance of nurturing the mind, body, and soul alike.  Thus, she has landed here, at Holistic By Nature.  Destiny has experience working with both children and adults with minor to major physical and cognitive disabilities, as well as ample experience caring for the geriatric population.

 

She enjoys writing, reading the densest books she can get her hands on, and thrift shopping for rare finds.  She is an avid weightlifter and believes in the importance of daily movement and exercise to coax the mind into a state of reflection.  Her professional goals include working to destigmatize the taboo associated with mental illness, as well as to help her clients realize that the strength to succeed has always been within them.  One thing she hopes to do is encourage her clients to “break the mold,” so to speak.  That is, instead of trying to squeeze yourself into a mold not meant for you, break that mold and create a new one.  She has the loudest laugh a human being can muster, and she intends to use it to her advantage when counseling clients. 

 

Destiny will be working as our newest Life Coach, while cherry picking ideologies from Existential and Person Centered theories, and finding her own personal style along the way.  She will also be managing a great deal of behind-the-scenes social media and outreach for Holistic By Nature.  In the future, she hopes to work with survivors of abuse, victims of trauma, and those suffering with severe anxiety.
