Sol Counseling & Consulting (Sol) was founded in April 2020 by Myrja Paul. It is a mental health practice that provides individual and family therapy and wellness services to adults and children. Sol was born out of a desire to help break the stigma of mental health services in communities of color. Myrja created a counseling practice of therapists that are culturally competent and have a passion for serving others. Sol strives to make sure our clients feel seen, understood and safe in our therapeutic environment. 


The name Sol was chosen as a shortened, easier version of the French/Creole word "Soleil"-meaning the sun or sunlight. It signifies hope, healing, empowerment, joy and redemption. The sun is a daily reminder that we too can rise again from the darkness, that we too can shine our own light (S. Anja).



Our Story

"I always knew that I wanted to help people. I've always had a love for people, a genuine interest in their stories and empathy about their experiences.  After working in several community mental health agencies, as well as public schools and colleges, I  had a lot of insight about how I wanted my practice to look. At Sol, client satisfaction and customer service are my top priorities. Next is creating a supportive and comfortable environment for my counseling team to thrive. 

Born of Haitian parents, I am rooted with a love for family, food, music and art. I love to laugh and find joy in making others smile. My hope is that when people connect with Sol, they leave feeling like they want to enjoy life-not merely exist"-Myrja Paul, Owner
