About Me

Teen Counseling
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who have work with children, adolescents, and teenagers for over ten years or more. I assist these youths to comprehend family network, understand life challenging situations, take responsibility for their actions, make rational choices, and create a self- fulfilling identity. Most importantly, I work with clients to assist them with learning how to comprehend their positive self-motivation so that can grow and develop to “Be All That They Can Be,” and achieve life goals.

During these challenging time, many of these youths may suffer with issues related to education, social connections, prom, graduation, sport events, recreation, religion, extra curricular activities, college visits, negative emotions, media, employment, medical conditions, medications management, family visits, and volunteer projects; additional to coping such issues including bullying, peer pressure, stress, depression, relational, addictive, abandonment, neglect, truancy, body image, gang, alcohol and substance use, pregnancy, self esteem, anxiety, identity, sexuality, environmental changes, and defiant behavioral problems. Too add, technological can be of a great benefit for some of these youths but it may appear to be a challenge for others due to the limited access and a lack of knowledge.

It is important to understand that not only these youths are affected by such problems; however, parents can struggle to raise these youths in such a circumstance society. I am here to assist clients to confront these daily endeavors and understand their roles in dynamic systems but ultimately to assist them with understanding their “true inner selves” as they nurture themselves to become a more respectful, obedient, caring, kind, lovable, achievable, and courageous individuals. I am here to assist them with understanding that they control their “destiny (ies).” I am looking forward to working with you.

I request that clients to assist me in creating a individualized but unique treatment plan to meet their concern needs and goals. Clients deserves to live a healthy and fulfilling life. I encourage clients to understand that they are the "Change agents" and control the "Change Process." The decision ultimately belongs to them. " For they are the key" to living a happy and prosper life. "The destiny belongs to these clients I am so delighted to be apart of the clients' success journey (ies). I am here to walk with clients as well as empower and inspire them to achieve goals. I am looking forward to working with you!

My grandson has only had 3 sessions but I already know that this was the best decision and I am so glad I did! Based on how my grandson has responded I believe that she is a great fit for him! ( and me, too)

LaKeicia really take pride in her approach to helping her clients. She has never hesitated to jump in to even the hardest topics. She has made me question my motives & face every situation with my head firmly on my shoulders. She has an excellent bedside manner & makes sure that I am settled from the session before ending it. I couldn’t be happier with her services.

Dr. Boyd understood what my wife and my goals were supported us helped us work towards that. She wouldn't shy away from the tough aspects of our therapy.

Her counselling style is exactly what I needed. She is so very kind while at the same time wouldn’t let me lie to myself. While she was my first therapist, I can definitely tell she’s one of the best ones out there.
