I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 20 years of counseling in various settings. Coming from a Biblical perspective, I have worked with troubled teens and their parents, individuals, families and couples. Although, I have been counseling professionally since my undergrad in 1990, I started counseling from the kindergarten playground, always desiring to assist with finding solutions to life's woes. Some of the areas of concern that I have addressed include depression, HIV/AIDS, adolescent concerns, anger, anxiety, family conflict, loss, blended families and many other areas of concern that affect families.
My counseling style is very welcoming and interactive. I believe in empowering the client and not making them feel judged. I remind myself that when working with a client I may be the only person in their life capable of both hearing and holding their pain, I don't take that for granted.
I look forward to working with you!

I am very grateful with Mrs. La Travia because she’s not only being beyond kind, empathetic and understanding, but objective. When I started with her I was grieving, and feeling very anxious, but she’s got a way to put things in perspective. In addition, she counsels with the Love of God, I’ve finished my sessions raising my hands and giving praise and thanks, because I’m filled with Joy, hope and peace. Thank you so much Mrs. La Travia!
LaTravia has a great personality that I could connect with instantly. She is extremely knowledgeable and attentive. She both encourages, equips, and challenges me to overcome my struggles with a faith based biblical approach (exactly what I was looking for).
From the first time I spoke with LaTravia I felt a sense of release on my chest. Her warm voice and her listening skills gave me hope I have not had in a while. Thanks to her support I'm getting out of a crisis and I always look forward to my next session with her. She's just a Godsend and amazing!!!
