Listen, life is hard. And coping with the anxiety and stress of the highs and lows it brings can be downright paralyzing. That is, when you don’t have someone to hold your hand through it all. Whether you’re a couple preparing for marital bliss or a millennial or teen struggling to sort out your emotions, The Prackind Wellness Group is here to help.

  • We offer emotional and mental wellness support and therapy as well as pre-marital counseling services for couples who are just about ready to say, “I do.”

  • For millennials and teens, we provide counsel on how to break through the anxiety, fear and lack of confidence blocking them from getting the success, inner peace or healthy relationships they want.

  • For couples, we offer pre-marital counseling services to foster unconditional love and silence the self-doubt and past traumas stopping them from communicating openly and feeling secure with their partner. Once they identify these emotions and learn how to manage them, they’re left filled with the hope and excitement of spending the rest of their lives together.

  • For both our couples, millennial and teen clients, we bridge the gap between Christian values and science. We do this by taking a strategic yet faith-based approach to helping our clients gain mental clarity, self-confidence, emotional wellness and internal peace.

Meet The Prackind Wellness Group Founder

I’m Amaris Watson Gale, the Psychotherapist and Premarital Love Counselor both millennials and couples turn to for guidance and support. I counsel millennials on how to break through the anxiety, fear and lack of confidence preventing them from getting the success, inner peace and healthy relationships they crave. Engaged couples turn to my practice for compassionate, straightforward premarital advice on how to build passionate, long-lasting marriages.

I believe culture and strategy, infused with kindness and consistency are the top catalysts for healing and development. This ethos, along with my passion for helping others has allowed me to build Prackind in a way that helps our clients achieve the change they want in their lives.

In addition to serving as the founder of Prackind, I’m also the co-leader of the Celebrate Recovery program at the First Baptist Church of Salisbury, Maryland. In this role, I leverage my expertise and experience to support individuals as they move past emotional pain and develop the skills needed to thrive and grow with kindness and joy.

I genuinely love helping others create the life they’ve always wanted, and I’m blessed to have Prackind and the First Baptist Church as outlets for me to use my passion to serve others.

Meet Paigean

I’m Paigean Jones, the Licensed Therapist and Registered Yoga Teacher millennials and teens trust to help them break through anger, boost positive feelings about self and let go of recurring worries so that they can live well.

Audre Lorde said it best, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation”. I believe that understanding and nurturing ones self physically, emotionally and relationally is a primary tool for cultivating inner peace. This philosophy, along with my passion for serving others has led me to create a healing space for clients to thrive in the midst of uncertainties.

Featuring weekend and afternoon hours in Lanham, Maryland and the option to practice yoga too, I’m here to make therapy flexible and accessible for you.

Whether you’re a teen trying to feel better while figuring out life, experiencing a mountain of stress and anxiety or going through a devastating break up with the one you love, I can help you move past difficult emotions and learn practical self-soothing skills you can use on-demand time and time again.
