Written on Jan 12, 2024 after therapy with LaKisha for 4 months on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

With almost a year of therapy with Dr. Kiki, I can honestly say my life, mental health, boundaries, self-care, and compassion towards myself have grown tremendously. I always feel stronger and ready to make better and healthier decisions for myself while giving myself credit for my growth after our sessions. Dr. Kiki is genuine, caring, warm, and firm in all the ways it is needed. She is responsive and has a way of helping me connect the dots in a way I wouldn’t be able to do alone. I highly recommend her!
