I am a National Certified Counselor, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been working as a Therapist for over 15 years. I also have several years of experience as a Board Qualified Clinical Supervisor. I recently earned the TeleMental Health Training Certificate (THTC) through the completion of the comprehensive THTC program. After completing the THTC, and passing a comprehensive exam I became a Board Qualified Telemental Health Provider (BC-TMH). I have provided counseling to adults, children and I have worked with the geriatrics population in a mental health setting. I have experience working with concerns including, but not limited to the following: depression, anxiety, gender issues, relationship issues, sexuality and multicultural issues. I have also worked very closely with individuals who have experienced physical trauma, emotional and or sexual abuse.
I utilize a sincere and interactive style of counseling where I want to meet the individual where they are at that time. I strive to be a strong support system for individuals in need. My overall goal involves helping others to reach their highest level of potential through the counseling relationship. I am truly passionate about treating all individuals with respect, dignity, sensitivity, and compassion. I am a firm believer that everyone deserves to be treated with care during therapy. I approach counseling with a cognitive-behavioral and person centered approach. Treatment will be completed based on your individual needs in regards to therapy.
As a therapist, I personally believe that each person has the key to make changes to his or her life. As a change agent, I would love to be a key part in the therapeutic process that helps you become a better you each day. I am here to support and empower you on your journey to a healthier overall well-being.

LaToya has been incredibly helpful in helping me process and work through several things I've been going through over the past ew months. Her offerings of worksheets and other tools are a comfort and I highly recommend!

I have been with LaToya for 5 weeks now, she has helped me identify the roots of some behavioural patterns and I can genuinely say I am excited or hopeful again, I look forward to our sessions, my sexuality and rance and issues I always felt like how can anyone relate but she has a way of making you see past your subconscious thoughts and walking with you towards exercises and worksheets that you can better your thought process and feelings towards yourself

LaToya is an amazing person and has already helped me grow more than I thought possible within the relatively brief time that she's been my counselor. My first impression of her was that she was incredibly smart, professional, attentive, and compassionate -- and that impression has proven to be 100% accurate. I really have never felt so heard and validated. It doesn't matter how I'm feeling going into a session with her -- I always come out of it feeling better. She has pointed out things for me to work on that I've been able to actively apply in my daily life, and I've seen such a difference already. I feel so much more confident in my decision-making, and my anxiety has gone way down. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with her, and can only imagine what's possible in the long term when I've seen such an improvement over just a couple of months. 10/10!!!
