About me

Counseling Philosophy and Services

I believe in a holistic and strength-based approach to counseling. The therapy process, in my opinion, is most beneficial when it involves exploring and integrating emotional, physical, social, spiritual needs, and values. Strength-based therapy highlights your abilities, talents, and positive qualities. One can use existing strengths and resources to promote personal growth, resilience, and well-being.

I am licensed in Michigan with 5 years of professional work experience as a mental health clinician. Two of those years I worked as a home-based clinician serving children with severe emotional disturbances and their families. I have over 10 years of professional experience working with women during prenatal and postnatal transitions. I enjoy serving individuals across the lifespan. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

I identify as a Christian counselor that offers both strictly clinical counseling and clinical counseling from a Christian viewpoint.

My counseling services address issues or concerns including:

Anxiety
Depression (Including Postpartum Depression)
Family Issues (conflict resolution, communication skills, setting appropriate boundaries)
Life Transitions, Changes, and Adjustments
Grief and Loss
Parenting
Parenting a Special Needs Child
Spirituality

Lekeisha has been an incredible therapist for me. She has had open communication, taught me new skills, and always followed up from our last conversation to see how things have progressed. I feel much more confident in my communication skills and handling conflict.
