About Me

I want to start by saying that asking for help is never easy, but it is one of the best gifts that you can give yourself. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. I would like to help you make sure that that person is healthy and comfortable with themselves. Thank you for having the courage to do this for yourself!

I have several years of experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings and am well versed in the different needs that individuals can present with. My focus over the past few years has centered on working in an outpatient and setting with individuals dealing with addiction, trauma, and mental health concerns. I also have experience in working with individuals in the LGBTQ and veteran community.

My counseling style is open and nonjudgmental. I believe in treating everyone with kindness, respect and compassion. I do not believe in labeling people, and pride myself on creating a safe space where people can feel free to be themselves. I do not take a one size fits all approach to therapy but rather, tailor my approaches based on my clients’ needs and what their treatment goals are. In general, I tend to use approaches that combine cognitive-behavioral, person centered and solution focused methods.

I look forward to connecting with you!

LaShaan has been such a huge help for me! She is the best listener and always reads every detail and responds to everything throughly. She is down to earth, funny, and puts so much effort into getting to understand me and the situation!

LaShaan has been amazing and has helped me so much. I appreciate that if I don't respond right away that she checks in to make sure everything is okay :) She's a rockstar.

LaShaan is a wonderful counselor and someone I would highly recommend. Never did I feel dumb or judged for the emotions I was expressing. She always made me feel like I could trust her regardless of what I was going through. She provided a wide number of resources and would always respond in a timely manner. I had an overall great experience with her!

LaShaan is one of the best therapists I've met in my life. She's very compassionate, smart, caring, nonjudgemental, and goal oriented. I'm fortunate and grateful that I have her as my therapist because she will be there for you and get the job done.

LaShaan has been very easy for me to open up to, she makes me comfortable enough to share my thoughts and helps me work through my feelings. We have communicated both via email and video chat. I would highly recommend her to someone looking for a counselor and let them know she is very open and honest but not intrusive and over bearing. This has been a very positive experience thus far for me.

LaShaan is super friendly and comes across as a very gentle soul. She takes the time to thoroughly read what you’ve written and response in a thoughtful way. She’s wonderful.
