She is caring and very helpful.
Ms. Lakiesha is a very gifted and compassionate counselor and I am grateful to know her, and to have her as my counselor.
She’s AMAZING! Totally listens and there aren’t any awkward silent moments. She’s always asking questions and getting to know you. She’s helped me with coparenting with a personality disordered individual, parenting in general, my current relationship, even advice for setting boundaries with friends. I can’t say enough good things about her. I’m so glad I found this therapist on my journey of healing and self love. Thank you, Lakiesha!!!
Lakiesha is so accomplished
