Life’s Journey founder Benicia Hernandez Gill is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment Practitioner, Certified Substance Abuse Counselor, Certified Life Coach, Approved Clinical Supervisor and Consultant. She has worked in the Behavioral Health Field in a variety of clinical settings for more than 10 years. Benicia’s vision was to develop an organization with a focus on empowering individuals and families to be an integral part of their mental health treatment. She believes partnership with consumers is paramount to achieving long term recovery and success in mental health treatment. As such, she has envisioned a company where consumers lead in selecting their comprehensive behavioral health care.
Life’s Journey was born from a construct in which a behavioral health provider can serve as a support system for consumers and they benefit from having a team of mental health professionals collaborate along their own life’s journey. We are a licensed mental health agency focused on empowerment, access to care, and providing evidenced based treatment interventions to individual and families. We are proud to have received our Small, Women-Owned, and Minority-Owned Business (SWaM) certification from the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (SBSD). Life’s Journey is committed to providing services that focus on enhancing our client’s quality of life and expanding their ability to meet the needs and demands they encounter on a daily basis. Benicia and the Life’s Journey team is always striving to improve and provide the highest quality of mental health treatment.
With a deep understanding that every individual can benefit from help along life’s diverging pathways, Benicia has dedicated her career to helping others achieve the “best life” that they can. With the launch of Best Life by Benicia, she has extended her outreach as a Life Journey Coach, blogger, speaker and advocate for women looking to transform their lives.
