I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Masters in Counseling Psychology with a focus in Gender and Women's Studies along with intersectionality and creating safe spaces for LGBTQ+ people. As a Black Queer Woman, I feel it's important to be mindful to meet people where they are based on identity as related to mental health needs. I have experience working with concerns such as depression, anxiety, life changes, and attachment issues. I also have experience with teens, adults, couples, and queer People of Color. You are the driver in your process while I am here to help navigate. I'm excited to go on the journey with you.

I have only been able to have on session with another scheduled. Immediately LaWanda was warm and inviting and made it comfortable to talk to. Much different than my last 2 therapy sessions with my works EAP program.
LaWanda is so kind and understanding. She is extremely easy to talk to and makes me feel comfortable opening myself up. I also really appreciate the different ideas she gave me for moving forward in my mental health.
LaWanda has been great so far. We’ve only been working together for a short time but she her responses have been very thoughtful and helpful.
I've only had 2 sessions with LaWanda so far, but I can already tell that she is AMAZING. I love the way she uses humor in our sessions. I never thought therapy would make me laugh so much. She made my first go at counseling feel like I was just hanging out with a friend. I can't recommend LaWanda enough!
LaWanda makes you feel at ease and is a great listener. She is wonderful, cannot recommend her enough!
Wanda is wonderful to work with. She has provided me with the support and validation I need to accomplish my goals.
LaWanda is so friendly and really takes the time to get to know you. I really appreciate her relationship building approach. Knowing that your counselor understands who you are on a more personal level truly allows them to suggest the best approach for tackling your life’s challenges.
She’s awesome and super friendly! She made me feel super comfortable right off the back, im glad she’s my counselor.
