I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the Central Texas area. I have spent the last 11 years helping a variety of different age groups work towards solutions utilizing my counseling degree. I have worked with children of all ages, teens, military populations, and couples. I love counseling or partnering (as I call it), to help others.

I utilize a variety of counseling methodologies which include motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, Narrative counseling, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Combining these different approaches has allowed me to make sure that each person is comfortably served while working with me. I am certified in trauma-informed practices and I am a nationally certified mental health first aid trainer.

As your therapist I will partner with you to work through your emotions so that I can help you set goals that you can reach to create change in your life. This is your process and I am just a guide.

Takiesha has been an excellent councillor. Not only is her approach kind and loving but she also has a good listening ear and really helpful suggestions. Her method has helped me to think about things in a new light and create substantial changes. The importance of a person who takes time to provide insightful responses cannot be underestimated. I’m really grateful for her guidance and this service during this stressful time.

I’ve had such a great time speaking to Takeisha, i feel like im talking to a friend who lives on the opposite side of the world than me. I’ve learned a lot so far and i wish to continue with her as well.

Takiesha is phenomenal! Anyone that she is paired with her will definitely have someone to talk to and discuss their problems with who can give not just sound advice, but provide them with guidance that is unparalleled.
