About Me

My name is Shaakira McMillon. I am a Licensed therapist (LCSW) in the state of California. I have been a Social Worker for 7 years. I am a proud Christian who loves the Lord. I am passionate about helping others and celebrating God's goodness. I believe in the power of prayer and the benefits of therapy. During difficult times, it is not uncommon to feel sad, alone, or disconnected from God/loved ones/partners. My role as a Christian therapist is to create a space to process feelings, worries and concerns while incorporating faith based principles. My approach to therapy is: warm, inviting, and calming. It would be a privilege to walk alongside you in healing journey. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

Written by A.L. on Nov 01, 2020 after counseling with Shaakira for 3 months

I love Shaakira. She’s AMAZING!!!! I’ve been working with her 2-3 months and we have unpacked so much and shes walked with me through different life situations already. She’s helpful, yet doesn’t tell you what to do, but counsels you to make the best decision/gives you insight on things you struggle with or want to work on. I admire and love her for giving me new perspectives and understanding about things going on in my world. I would 100% recommend her and I’m forever thankful we matched!!!
