I have been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor for many years and have worked in a variety of settings. I especially enjoy working with life transitions, women, spirituality issues, grief and loss, and cultural complexities, as well as anxiety and depression concerns.
My counseling style is warm, patient, and accepting. I am a good listener and enjoy the interactive nature of the counseling relationship. My life experience as well as my training informs my treatment approach which is primarily cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic. I can provide an emotionally safe place for you to work with what you bring to the conversation and will honor your uniqueness.
I am aware of the courage it takes to pursue greater fulfillment and happiness and admire your willingness to reach out. Small changes can make a difference, if you are ready to grow I can provide support and help for you.
I look forward to working with you!

LaVina Weaver has been amazingly helpful and our journey together has really just begun. She has already made such a positive impact on my own mental well-being. I can trust her to be kind and understanding and open with me about anything I need to talk about. I cant thank her enough.
LaVina has been great to work with. You can tell she truly cares when we are talking and always has great constructive responses. I am truly enjoying working with her and am excited to continue. She has helped bring a calmness within myself in a time I would not normally be able to.
LaVina has been a wonderful counselor for me. I have had over 10 different counselors and therapists throughout my 27 years of life and from only 1 video chat and a number of messages, LaVina is in my top 2. She explains concepts thoroughly yet simply, which I appreciate tremendously since I tend to question why certain things are done/recommended, and she is very considerate, personable, poignant, and easy to open to. I'm sad I won't be able to continue my sessions with her due to unforeseen financial troubles but I hope to reconnect with her once I'm more financially stable.
I really appreciate how LaVina works to provide me with goals and actions to take at the end of our sessions. She's able to get to the core of the issues, and asks questions that prompt me to think differently and better understand myself. I'm truly grateful for her help at this time.
