LaTravia Williams

LMFT

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!
