Excellent therapist. Knowledgeable and active listener. Gentle and non-judgemental. Warm and professional. Follow-up and probing questions that leave their mark on me for days. I recommend her without reservation.

Lateka is amazing. I’ve never felt like a therapist helps me figure out better ways to do things like she does! I feel like I can ask her for help accomplishing anything and she will figure out ways to help me get there. I feel a serious weight lifted from my shoulders since we started talking
