Lakeytha Clayton

LCSW

About Me

Hi! My name is Lakeytha G. Clayton. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in the states of Louisiana and Texas. I have been employed in the social work profession for over 19 yrs. I have a Bachelor of Social Work from Northwestern State University and a Master of Social Work from Louisiana State University. My specialties are anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder, self-esteem/self-image, stress management, and women's issues. I am passionate about working with women and assisting them in confronting the issues related to their mental, emotional, physical, and/or spiritual health (if so desired). My approaches to therapy are holistic, strengths-based, goal-oriented, cognitive behavioral, person-centered, and motivational interviewing, addressing the total woman. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with female clients to help them succeed according to the standards of the client, not society’s standards! My desire as a therapist is to motivate women to embrace who they are, celebrate their strengths and uniqueness, and simultaneously, give them a new, fresh perspective regarding their life despite obstacles/struggles. My questions to my ideal female clients: Are you tired of struggling with where you are in life? Are you struggling with your past, your present, or even concerned about your future? Are you ready to make changes that will propel you towards success as the woman you were created to be and maintain a healthy state of well-being? Are you ready to experience restoration and wellness? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, I would love to see how I can assist you! My desire as a therapist is to collaborate with women to help them experience restoration and wellness while becoming the best version of themselves. I will meet you where you are and we will move forward from there. Every female client I work with will be honored, valued, and respected! I look forward to working with you!

Before meeting Lakeytha, I doubted that I would find a counselor that understood my concerns. From Day 1, Lakeytha was able to identify my issues and show empathy. I felt heard and understood for the first time.

Lakeytha is also knowledgeable. I felt confident that she had the resources needed to help me with my issue and make progress. Since I have been seeing Lakeytha, I have felt more hopeful and less alone in my struggles.

Lakeytha has played the role as counselor and encourager for the last few months. My time with her has led to unearthing answers to personal questions I’ve deeply pondered since childhood. Lakeytha helped me unlock personal growth and helped me steward it well. She is very observant, detailed, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend coming under her leadership and counsel.

Work with me!
