Ms. Wright is absolutely wonderful! She’s super attentive, supportive and reliable. She is always willing to give me sound advice when I share information with her. She takes note of what I’m sharing and follows up with it thoroughly. I really appreciate her!

In a world where there aren't as many women of color, and specifically Black women in mental health, LaKeisha is the light at the end of the tunnel! She's supportive, knowledgable, and timely

LaKeisha has helped me significantly in my relationships, and particularly with my fiancé and joining a new family. She has helped me find the confidence and peace in being myself in all situations, setting healthy boundaries, protecting my own energy, and above all else leading with kindness and love. She is supportive, thoughtful, and caring, and she truly listens and understands me even when I feel like I'm not making much sense. She also has a fantastic sense of humor! I would recommend LaKeisha to any and everyone -- and I wish a lot of people I know could talk to her lol
