About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Louisiana and Texas with over 10 years of experience working as a school counselor, behavioral health counselor and life coach. I have always been described by others as a caring professional with years of counseling experience. It seems that I have always known that I wanted to be a part of a helping profession. I was the one whose friends and even complete strangers would come to for advice and a listening ear. Even if I didn't always have the answers, I could at least point them in the right direction to get the help they needed. I have earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology with a minor in Psychology and a Master's degree in Counseling from McNeese State University. I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor/School Counselor.

My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and solution focused therapy. I will modify and adjust our conversation and treatment plan to meet your specific needs.
I have worked with individuals with anxiety, depression, PTSD, adjustment disorders, substance abuse, relationship issues, parenting problems and many self-esteem issues.

I look forward to working with you!

Lakitria immediately made my counseling experience beneficial and meaningful by getting to the heart of issues and providing actionable next steps to address one challenge at a time. Not all counselors take this approach from the very first session, but it was greatly appreciated and welcomed.
