About me

Life can come at you hard; however, it doesn’t have to break you. Are you struggling with depression- sadness that has lasted too long, anxiety, anger, everyday life issues related to marriage, family? Allow me to walk with you on your journey to healing. Together we can conquer the mental challenges that may be preventing you from living your best life.

When life is coming at you hard it is forcing you to free yourself from the familiar and face your brand-new life which may seem scary. That is where I come in. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I provide assistance and real-life practical tools for issues that affect daily life management and help motivate individuals and couples to reach their full potential. Using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidenced-based practices we can learn to change the way we think, which changes the way we feel, which in turn changes the way we view and handle tough situations.

As a therapist, I am very straightforward. I will get in the trenches with you helping you confront the tough issues while encouraging you to move forward in the process. I would love to help you make lasting changes to get the desired results in your life and relationships. Oh, unfortunately, one of my children broke my magic wand so you will have to do the work.

I can't wait to join you on your journey.

She is a great listener and gives good insight on situations at hand

Written on Jul 05, 2022 after therapy with La Toya for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

I have been working with LaToya Carter for a few weeks now, I would HIGHLY recommend her. From my first session she is very understanding and compassionate but at the same time she’s upfront and very honest. I feel like she calls me to a higher level and gets my brain going. Her tools and advance go a long way! She’s amazing at what she does!

I highly recommend La Toya Carter. She has helped me work through multiple issues that have been a burden for quite some time. I was never one that really thought therapy could do much to help me, but I’m so glad I took the time to work with her to get things straightened out.

LaToya is the highest caliber health professional I've come across. In just a short time, I have already felt at ease and understood. I love the way she questions each action I share - I often don't see things I'm doing or their impact. She is also very to the point which is important to me.

La Toya is an awesome, empathetic counselor and who can identify many of my personal problems and situation. She helps untangle all the messy thoughts and identifies what you actually should be investing your time and mental energy towards. Through strong specific questioning and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), she really makes me a better person and inspires me to help those close to me. Thanks La Toya! :D

She is an amazing counselor. Reliable, funny, relatable and very good at her job. She's been such an amazing help to me and I know she'll be the same for you! ❤️

Written on Jun 16, 2021 after therapy with La Toya for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

LaToya has been an absolute joy to work with. She really spends a lot of time listening and gives me journal prompts and worksheets that are directed towards what I am going through. She is always punctual and professional and replies to my journal entries with a lot of positive reinforcement. I have only had 2 sessions and she has already helped me tremendously. I would not hesitate to recommend her to a family or friend.

La Toya really makes me feel at ease when taking to her through messages. She’s very patient and has so many suggestions when it comes to helping me see things from a different perspective. This is the best therapy I’ve been through hands down !

Work with me!
