She is the best therapist anyone could wish for. I wouldn't be were I am today if it wasn't for her!

Lakishia helped me understand my main problems in life. Explained to me the difference between disabilities and illnesses in mental health. She always has a great attitude into trying to help and get to know you but also with anything that you tell her, she will hype you up with every accomplishment you make. It is always encouraging having her and doing more sessions with her. She's great at what she does and will always work in trying to help you out even if she might not be able to.

Lakishia has been great to me so far, even in times I don’t want to talk, she finds a way to get me to open up.
