About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 20 years of counseling in various settings. I have worked with troubled teens and their parents, individuals, families and couples. Although, I have been counseling professionally since my undergrad in 1990, I started counseling from the kindergarten playground, always desiring to assist with finding solutions to life's woes. Some of the areas of concern that I have addressed include depression, HIV/AIDS, adolescent concerns, anger, anxiety, family conflict, loss, blended families and many other areas of concern that affect families.

My counseling style is very welcoming and interactive. I believe in empowering the client and not making them feel judged. I remind myself that when working with a client I may be the only person in their life capable of both hearing and holding their pain, I don't take that for granted.

I look forward to working with you!

I owe so much of my healing to her insights. She is thorough, patient, and meets you where are you at with no judgment and a little bit of humor. She goes above and beyond every time, and create a safe space four me to share and unburden myself. I am very lucky to have found such an excellent counselor in her

Kind and patient. She makes me feel comfortable talking to her even when talking to someone is the last thing I want to do. She has given me multiple tools to help with anxiety and I both appreciate and respect her perspective.

I was connected with a counselor prior to meeting Ms. Williams and I just didn’t feel a connection. However once I was partnered with Ms. Williams she understood me and really helped get to the root of my issues and help me through a divorce. She is absolutely amazing.

In just one session with LaTravia, I was able conquer my Mother guilt and begin to feel confident that I have in fact done a pretty good job of raising my children.

LaTravia is beyond awesome. She understood where I am and does not judge. She has been soooo helpful with my situation. Without her - I would probably be in emotional pain longer than necessary. She has been a rock in a time of trouble.

LaTravia Williams has been one of the best therapists I've ever worked with. She has discussed things with me in a way that no other therapist has. She is very good at applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy methods, which has helped me immensely. She is honest and real with you. In the short time that I've been communicating with her, LaTravia has managed to help me work through issues that I've been living with for decades. Sessions are invigorating and insightful.
