Dr. Laklieshia Izzard

(LPC, ACS, NCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Approved Clinical Supervisor, Counselor Leader, and Servant Leader, with a variety of counseling experience. I also have a doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, drug addiction, drug recovery, relationship issues, anger issues, trauma, career challenges, and developing life direction. I also have helped many people who have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and emotional abuse. I have worked with the US Veterans for more than 6 years and have a passion for working with the Military population.

My counseling style is empathic and engaging. I believe in treating anyone with a desire to change, learn, and grow. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, existentialism, choice theory, psychodynamic, and spirituality depending on client need. I will tailor my approach with your treatment goals to meet your unique and specific needs.

If you are ready to be empowered and live a victorious life I am here to help.

I look forward to sharing with you!

Dr. Izzy is great she’s very compassionate and is very dedicated to helping others from what I’ve experienced. She’s helping me re connect with God and incorporates that into our sessions which I appreciate

Dr Izzy is a brilliant counsellor! She's been so supporting and uplifting throughout our whole relationship and has taught me so many effective ways to tackle my anxiety. With her, it's a safe space to openly talk about anything that worries me.

Dr. Izzard is very compassionate and relatable. She shares her personal experiences which helps me feel validated and not alone. She’s open to using any form of communication (chatting, phone call and video call). As a task-oriented person, I appreciate her giving me tasks for the week. As a spiritual person, I appreciate her reminders to read my Bible and to trust God.

Dr Izzy is a very good therapist. Very easy to talk to and helped me deal with my anxiety. She challenged the way I think and provided material to assist me in my future mental health development. I would gladly recommend Dr Izzy to anyone dealing with any anxiety issues.
