Rima Acevedo

Behavioral Supports Specialist

For as long as I can remember, I always found myself drawn to helping others. It was not until I joined Lehigh Valley Adult Services that it made me realize helping people and focusing on mental health is a way of life for me. I enjoy using genuineness, acceptance and humor to create a safe healing space where my clients can work through life’s difficulties even as I foster strong relationships with them to increase their therapeutic gains. My perspective is strength based and goal oriented in order to aid them in developing proactive problem-solving approaches.
We all hold the answers to unlocking our true selves which is where I come in, to help people discover who they are, who they want to become and how to get them on that path to self-actualization. I team up with individuals of all ages in order to enable them to lead fulfilling and enriched lives by building on existing strengths for the best possible life. Through continued education and with the backing of my fellow professionals at LVICS, my desire is to make a positive impact in the lives of others.
I am an avid reader and can be found doing various art activities.
