Lekeshia is a great therapist! We may not be the same race, and a lot of my problems stem from issues with my own community, but she is very understanding and helps me through what is going on in my life.

Lekeshia is great at listening for what I my goals are and helping me know where to start when I otherwise might get overwhelmed. Where I need structure she brings it and when I need flexibility she’s there for that too. My habits are improving and I feel more optimistic about my mental health and my future since working with her.

She’s a great counselor! She helped me understand my issues and the best way to cope with them going forward. Before counseling, I felt lost but after counseling now, I feel so much better!

Lekeshia Lynch is being very helpful. . Her counseling and resources are making a difference in helping me to deal with my situation in a good way. She is a very good listener and she is up to par with information I’ve shared with her in previous sessions and from my journals. I would recommend her to others.
