Counseling Philosophy and Services
I believe in a holistic and strength based approach to counseling. The therapy process should involve exploring and integrating emotional, physical, social, and spiritual needs and desires. Strengths contribute to a person's resilience and protective factors. I believe it’s important to acknowledge those strengths when trying to resolve issues.
I am licensed in Michigan with 3 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 life-span. 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.

Lekeisha is seriously the best. She has become a friend and someone that I can confidently place my trust. I appreciate her more than words can explain. She has helped me get through really hard times and I don’t know where I would be without her right now!

She's very experienced in her practice, and I always feel like she tries to understand what I'm feeling. It's amazing because I've tried therapy before and I hated it, but she helps me see therapy in a new light.
