About Me

Are you struggling to make decisions that you feel should be simple? Is it difficult for you to maintain relationships with family, your partner or children? Do you have a history of trauma or abuse? Are your tired of falling into the same patterns or cycles? Do you feel you are your best self?

I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC). I'm here to assist with support, guidance, and skills to help you to make the best decisions so you can get better results. I provide individual, couples, and family psychotherapy to young adults and adults. Previous and current clients describe me as an intuitive, open-minded person who is easy to talk to. I integrate different approaches to help clients reach their goals. I prefer to work from a relational and psychodynamic perspective. I also use a holistic approach which encompasses the spirit, body, and mind. Other approaches I use include Cognitive Behavior Therapy with Solution-Focused Theory.
I believe in changing your thoughts to change your world. I am direct and honest and solution and goal oriented. I believe in supporting the whole person, and implementing interventions based on unique and individual needs. I believe that therapy can only be effective when there is alliance between the therapist and client.

I feel strongly that you must be fully invested in treatment for it to work. My goal is to understand and listen to client’s preferences and opinions so we can develop a plan together. I believe clients posses all of the resources they need to get the life they want.

Some of my experience includes addictions, trauma, abuse, infertility, decision making, depression, anxiety, LGBT, marriage and family relationships.

At a loss for words trying to describe how amazing my counselor is. I've spent time with other counselors and have never felt so comfortable opening up to her. She was definitely sent to me by God to help me!

I think Mrs. Erwin is the best she listen to you fair and square and stays neutral not taking any one person side, but helping you get to the bottom of the actual problem she listen no judgement makes you feel extremely comfortable. So I never felt left without help she is the absolute best

I have grown so much through my sessions with Lakisha. Her insights and "homework" has been a comfort and stepping stones toward my goals.
