Hi, I'm LaShica and I'm glad you have reached out to take care of yourself. Counseling is a great form of personal care!!
I would like to tell you a little about myself. I currently live in Charlotte, NC but I'm originally from Marion, SC. I am married with 2 kids. I love lifting weights, playing softball, and running. I have over 10 years of experience in counseling adults with mental illness, developmental disabilities and substance abuse problems. I have experience working with young adults in transitional housing providing therapeutic individual and group counseling. I have worked with families providing individual and family counseling in the clinical and home setting.
My mother is a minister so I have had Christ in my life for a very long time. Sharing the word of God is something that I love to do and will continue to do for as long as I live. Despite my educational background in counseling, it all just comes back to good Godly principles.
My approach to therapy comes from an eclectic base with a strong focus on cognitive-behavioral and person centered therapy. I believe that a person should be able to make choices about their future and should be given all available resources to make that informed choice. With God leading the way we can not fail!!!
I look forward to working with you in the future.

I've just had my first session with LaShica and, while I didn't expect it so soon, I got so much perspective and practicality out of our one session. I appreciated that she affirmed boundaries while giving me some "grounding in reality," and that she helped me to see different options within those boundaries.
Having had a few sets of face-to-face counseling, I started the session with anxiety about "online counseling." But when it was over I felt peaceful and prepared to take my next step. LaShica's such a good counsellor - direct, but not pushy; down to earth; and insightful. I am so grateful!
I have been speaking to LaShica for just a couple of weeks but so far so great! I have always been apprehensive about counseling/ therapy and have put it off for many years. Upon our very first conversation, LaShica made me feel very relaxed. The session wasn’t clinical as I had expected, I could relate with her.. she really listened and I was able to be myself. We have a call every week and she checks in on numerous occasions over the week. Again, this has really helped to build rapport and though it’s only been a few weeks - I already feel lighter and things are looking up for me. I would highly recommend!
