About me

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Michigan for over 15 years, and am also a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have worked with a diverse range of clients. My experience includes working with adults dealing with depression and anxiety, self-esteem and motivation issues, family concerns, relationship problems, and life changes such as financial difficulties, school/work adjustment, and medical concerns. My therapy style tends to be laidback, genuine, and nonjudgmental, with a touch of sense of humor when appropriate, of course. My goal as a therapist is to encourage you, help push you forward in a positive direction, and allow you to be yourself, talk about your thoughts and experiences as openly as you want, I'll let you know if I think it's way too offensive. If you only want therapy to vent your concerns and not necessarily get new ideas, I'll be here to listen. With your assistance, we will develop a treatment plan with your goals to help meet your needs. I work around what fits your needs and do offer suggestions that may help, and you can decide if they will work for you. It takes strength to decide you need some guidance to improve your life, and hopefully I can be the one to assist you. I am here to support you and I look forward to working with you!

My schedule is Monday 9am with the last session at 6:30pm, Tues and Thurs start at 8am, last session at 6:30pm. I am not available Wednesdays, Fridays or weekends.

I check messages throughout the day Monday-Friday and respond within 24 hours. If it is the weekend, I may respond by Monday as I may be tending to other responsibilities. I am available for video chat, phone/voice chat, or live chat messaging.

LaTanya was an amazing therapist to me. She helped me through horrible health anxiety, family issues, and OCD-like intrusive thoughts. She has truly changed my life for the better and I highly recommend her<3

I absolutely love doing my therapy sessions with LaTanya. She's attentive, kind, she understands my situation and gives small homework assignments to try. And most importantly, she doesn't judge, she listens. ❤️

LaTanya has been so helpful. We have only had a few sessions so far but by far I've had my best experience with her. She's truly genuine in her responses, not forceful and it truly feels like we are working together on practical solutions to my issues. She is really good at helping me identify those as well and that really helps me make sense of how I think and how we come up with those solutions. It's all very laid back at the same time. She's a pro!

I have completed two sessions with LaTanya to date. Last week was good for me, I slept throughout the night and only had one anxious moment prior to a meeting. I used the techniques LaTanya recommended and the meeting went well.

Very supportive, very interactive, having a very positive experience thus far. Sometimes I wonder if her analysis could be deeper but it's only been 3 weeks so it's too early to really tell but so far so good. She's great!
