“To know and understand that there are steps outside of spirituality that are just as needed can change one’s opinion about how we engage other people but also how we handle ourselves when it comes to mental heath. Dr. East so candidly provided us with an awakening moment and challenged us to think outside the religious box and embrace a holistic approach when dealing with matters of the psych. Many of us left empowered to tear down the walls of religious separation and dis-spell the myths surround therapy. Dr. East shared a powerful tip I am now living by: “In order to Heal, you got to feel…in order to feel, you have deal.” I am definitely looking for the next session.”

Brandon E. Perkins, Pastor/Prophet

Instead of paragraphs full of cold, clinical terminology, Dr. East uses illustrative examples and extended metaphors to introduce and explain complex issues in accessible, creative ways.

“Being one of the more passionate and engaging advocates for student development and learning, Dr. Carleah East stands as an effective communicator in multiple arenas. Her public speaking delivery as well as her overall stage presence is consistently coupled with strong expertise in student success initiatives, innovative strategies for quality instruction, and research and practice in mental health. These rare attributes are evident as she continues to support and define the mission of higher education and the growth of each student. It was my honor to share a stage with her during a couple of presentations, but it is always a privilege to listen to her addresses when she is presenting alone.”

As someone who’s been able to spread her knowledge as an author,speaker, and professor, Dr. East is a rare gem.
