About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience working as therapist and leader in the Army. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including grief/loss, relationship, family, and parenting challenges, adjustment challenges, and trauma with a special focus on combat related trauma, PTSD and moral injury . My counseling style is interactive and warm. I consider the client/therapist relationship to be the most important component in the therapeutic relationship. I will always be respectful, compassionate, and honest. Our sessions will be focused around your needs and goals.

I consider myself a strength based, solution focused therapist. I have been trained in other treatment modalities as well to include EMDR, CBT, ART, and CPT.

It takes internal strength to ask for help. I would love the opportunity to help you figure out what will make your life better and more fulfilling. I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by L.E. on Apr 01, 2021 after counseling with Lataya for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Lataya has become a key part of my stress and anxiety management as I took on a more demanding position at work. I often don’t realize that I’m in a session and it feels more like talking to a friend. She seamlessly provides guidance, perspective, and encouragement without judgment. It’s been a pleasure working with her and I’m happy I was matched with her through Better Help.
