About me

Hi, my name is Dr. Lekesha Davis. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri. I have worked in the social services field for more than 20 years, starting as a residential technician helping youth in a group home setting. I believe that providing trauma informed, genuine, and compassionate care are at the core of who I am. There may come a time where we all need additional support and I strive daily to breakdown the wall of stigma that prevents individuals from seeking needed services.

I also teach graduate counseling students. I believe it is my responsibility as a gatekeeper to ensure that future counselors have the tools and skills needed to become dynamic clinicians.

My specialties include working with survivors of intimate partner violence, couples and families, working with both youth and adults who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, psychotic disorders as well as issues common in youth such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders, and Adjustment Disorders.

My theoretical orientation is Person Centered Theory, I genuinely engage with clients displaying empathy as well as unconditional positive regard. My goal is to help clients achieve self-actualization. The goal is not just to help clients realize their potential but to achieve wellness. Each client is unique and I cater my therapeutic approaches to the unique needs of my clients.

I love writing poetry! I believe that poetry can give a brief glimpse into one's soul.

I look forward to supporting you through your journey!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Lekesha Davis. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I've met with a lot of therapists, but Dr. Davis makes me feel really comfortable and is so easy to talk to. I think that the combination of her expertise and this platform that allows me to process in my own home has helped me so much more than traditional therapy. I can't believe the difference it makes when you no longer "go to" therapy, but instead "engage in" therapy. Highly recommend!
