Guest: SONYA MUHAMMAD M.A. MFCC, PPS
Sonya Muhammad is a marriage, family, and child counselor and life coach. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Theater Arts from Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois, her Master’s Degree in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling from Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena, California, and her Educational Counseling Certification from the University of La Verne in La Verne, California. Ms. Muhammad has devoted over 25 years to working with children who have difficult behaviors and other life struggles, while providing their parents with parent education and support .
Ms. Muhammad is an adjunct professor at the University of LaVerne in LaVerne , California, and she has served as a counselor/coach in a variety of school districts and county agency settings working with children K-12 and their families. This particular interest in the psychotropic drugging of foster children who have no voice and no power, is directly encouraged and sustained by her collaborations with other professionals and professional organizations who have similar interests and concerns. These collaborations and affiliations has supported her in becoming a voice for foster children who are the seriously silenced victims, due to the administration and misrepresentation of so-called “medications” (psychotropic drugs) that serve as nothing more than chemical restraints.
Ms. Muhammad’s next book, Wake Up and Smell The Cocoa, a brief handbook exposing the childhood ADHD myth and the dangers of psychotropic drugs, will also be available on Kindle in September of this year. Persons interested in online virtual office counseling and consultations services can find Ms. Muhammad at www.theCounselor.com.
