To aid those in times of need while improving quality of life. Healthy Lives, LLC., was established in 2013 by Ahmein Watson LCSW-C, LCADC. Healthy Lives was established to create an environment where people can find a safe, professional opportunity to address and manage behavior health issues. Behavioral health problems are more common than many other health problems today, affecting one in five Americans and their families each year.
Healthy Lives has a team of licensed and certified professionals dedicated to assisting people living with mental health disorders and work towards finding a therapeutic formula to address their needs.
Healthy Lives is invested in the community we serve with our array of services. Being so we often step outside of the office and into the community with Healthy Lives events. Our events include during the Summer hosting a neighborhood cookout complete with moon bounce for the children and during the holiday handing out turkeys for the families in the Baltimore area. We understand that giving back is just as important to the health of our community.
