Her therapy/counseling practice is located at the Research Institute for Counseling and Education (RICE) in Norcross/Peachtree Corners, Georgia.

As a result of her work with African American men, Dr. Faye is able to assist African American women and families as they journey toward more holistic relationships. Specific issues addressed in her therapy/counseling practice include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, anger, communication, parenting, trans-generational issues, race, gender, sex, abuse and infidelity. Dr. Faye works from an Africentric perspective of the sacred. She believes that balance is central to the emotional, spiritual and physical health of all persons. Rev. Dr. Faye Weems-Singleton is licensed and ordained as an elder by the Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship, Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr., Founder and Bishop Joseph Walker, III, Presiding Bishop.
