I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 10 years of experience. My counseling style is interactive, and it prioritizes the therapeutic relationship. I think it's important for you to know that I'm a great listener. I encourage my clients to express themselves without the fear of judgment. I've assisted people from all walks of life to help achieve their personal goals. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, and substance abuse. I also helped individuals who have been diagnosed with HIV to cope with difficult life transitions. Trauma-Informed Care is also addressed with many of my clients. My approach combines Motivational Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Person-Centered, and Strength Focused Therapy. I will tailor our conversation and treatment plan to meet your specific needs.
I want to thank you for taking the first step in reaching out. I know it wasn't easy. Please know that I am here to help you along the way.
I look forward to working with you!

LaCheryl is so amazing at what she does. She helped me work through a problem that I never knew how to handle or process, and now my life is better for it. She’s patient, kind, compassionate, and really takes the time to listen. I’m so thankful to have been able to work with her!

I have been working with LaCheryl Tucker-Harkins for a short time and already she has helped me tremendously. She pays attention to all details. She listens attentively and breaks down every aspect of whatever situation and shows me exactly how one feeling connects with another. She noticed during one of my sessions that i wasnt my usual self and called me on it. She was right. By the end of that session i felt like me again. I definitely recommend her 10/10.
