There is something so soothing about that evening sun shower. The colors of the sky, the rain on the windows, and the clarity and calmness that follows.


Serein Counseling was founded in 2017 by Micheline Maalouf, who always reflected and got lost in the beautiful colors and feelings the "after rain" day held. When we experience childhood trauma, it can feel as though our entire world has been soaked with pain, and it can feel and seem impossible to find a ray of light. Something to give us clarity. It's there. Behind the clouds, your sunshine exists, and we are here to help you find it.
