About Me

Do you have challenges hearing God’s voice? Do you have a desire to please God but you find it hard to know what choices you should make in your life? Are you seeking God's guidance for your relationships with your partner, children or work but you are unsure of what God's Will is for you?

I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) and Christian counselor. My goal is to help you remove all of the distractions and voices that can confuse you with understanding the direction God has for you. I provide Christian counselling to individual, couples, and families. Previous and current clients and families describe me as a God led professional who helps them clarify what God is saying to their current situation. . I integrate different approaches to help clients reach their goals. I prefer to work from a relational and psychodynamic perspective. I also use a holistic approach which encompasses the spirit, body, and mind. Other approaches I use include Cognitive Behavior Therapy with Solution-Focused Theory. Depending on a client’s preference, I use prayer and the scripture in sessions to help clients with direction. My preference is to is to start and finish a session in prayer. I believe that the “wonderful counselor” is the real counselor and I serve as an advocate to assist in your journey. I believe that therapy can only be effective when there is alliance between the therapist and client. I feel strongly that you must be fully invested in treatment for it to work. My goal is to understand and listen to clients preferences and opinions so we can develop a plan together. Sessions are God led. I believe God has provided clients will all of the tools and power they need to live a fulfilled free life and hearing God's voice is essential to this journey.

Some of my experience includes addictions, trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, marriage and family relationships.

I love working with LaKisha. She is the best therapist I have ever had. I love the way she stays tuned into the Holy Spirit and makes sure we start and end each session with prayer. She knows how to challenge me without pushing me too far. And she understands what I am dealing with and what I have been through.

I have been working with Lakisha for over a year now - she's someone that I can trust to help me navigate the twists and turns of life and this platform allows me to work with her at my flexibility and convenience - it's a huge help that we can meet virtually over the phone. My experience with Lakisha has become a part of my self-care practice - when life throws me a curve ball, she is who I turn to help me guide myself back to myself with gentle words, valuable insights, and faith.

So far LaKisha has been great. She challenges me but also supports me. I feel like she really helps me to try and understand my feelings and behaviors in a different way to help me try to move forward with my issues. I love that we pray together and that what the Bible says is part of our discussions but it's not just throwing scripture at me and saying figure it out. I am so glad I have begun counseling with LaKisha and look forward to more sessions with her to help me through my issues.

LaKisha has been wonderful! It's only been a few sessions, but I am thankful for how she's helped me process so much that I have never stopped to consider. Excited to keep working with her.

Lakisha has been a true blessing from God! She is truly led by spirit and has helped me grow tremendously with her knowledge, wisdom, prayer, and kindness! She gives me the tools I need to work on myself both psychologically and spiritually.

I've been working with LaKisha for over three months now and I've come a long way thanks to her. She listens and understands me in a way that I really needed. She does a great job of making me see situations from different perspectives. She always leaves me thinking more deeply and feeling confident. Our "chats" have gotten me through some very rough days and I'm grateful to know that she is always in my corner. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone!

I am so thankful for my counselor Lakisha. She is God sent and I’m very happy with the work we are doing and my progress that I’ve made. She is down to earth and yet God uses her in such a way to speak.

Lakisha is an amazing help! She is exactly what I needed: sensitive to my issues and tough enough to push me to do better. She was sent by God. In the midst of my crazy world she is helping me take life one step at a time and puck myself up. I love the peace I get from reading her advice and words. Thank you!!

She had helped me already so much in the short time we’ve worked together. I can’t wait to continue to grow with her help.
