Welcome! I'm excited you have decided to take this amazing first step in becoming your best self! My name is La'Trell and I am here to help support and guide you on your life journey. Many people have an idea about what therapy is and what I like to tell my clients is that therapy can mean many things to different people. Some use therapy as a way to learn how to live again after they have experienced a traumatic experience and others may feel stuck and need a little guidance. Whatever therapy means for you, I will support you by meeting you where you are and then we can go from there.
To tell you more about myself, I earned my bachelors degree in psychology from Hampton University (2013), I have a masters degree in counseling from Houston Baptist University (2016) and am a licensed professional counselor in Texas (#80606). I spent two years working with foster and adoption families in multiple cities in Texas to build on acknowledge and build on their strengths as well as address their struggles. I have taught elementary to intermediate grades for 5 years, that experience has provided me with an insight on child development that I will appreciate while in the counseling field. I have experience working with different demographics including children, adolescents, adults and families that struggle with many different issues, including but not limited to, depression, anxiety, bipolar, stress management, grief, trauma, abuse, family conflict, relationship issues, anger management, behavioral problems and other mental health concerns.
My approach to clients is simple, meet them where they are. I use multiple types of theoretical approaches to make you feel the most comfortable. I believe you know what you want and need and its my job to help you get there. I am not here to judge you or lecture you, I am simply the support and guidance you may need to get to where you want to be.
Change and growth can be obtained when we make a conscious decision to make that change. With consistency and determination is when one can thrive at being our "best" selves. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

La’Trell has been very helpful during these trying times. I am very appreciative of her support.
La’Trell Williams is amazing. She will listen to you and help walk you through whatever trouble you are facing. She helps you open up and realize the things that you could be doing to help push yourself in the right direction. 10/10.
La'Trell is knowledgeable, relatable, professional, and kind. We started out with another counselor who did not take the time to truly engage with my daughter, check up on her, or remember what they would discuss in their sessions. When I requested a new counselor, I was skeptical. Thankfully, we were paired with La'Trell. She makes a point to check in on my daughter. She is consistent and responsive. La'Trell is also great with providing coping mechanisms for my daughter's anxiety and takes time to talk my daughter through some of her daily struggles. I also appreciate the honest and concise feedback La'Trell provides me when I follow up on their progress. My faith in this app and teen counseling has been restored. Most importantly, my daughter is getting the help she needs which is so crucial in the stay-at-home isolated environment we have now. Thank you!
So far so good. Enjoying this journey to a better life.
La’Trell has exceeded my expectations for support and guidance in her role as my counsellor. One of the things I didn’t realize I needed was someone who acted like an invisible safety net even between our video sessions. Even if I don’t message her I know she is there if I need her, and that sense of safety and support has made a huge difference for me. She makes me feel seen and heard while also providing me with information and guidance so I can reach my goals. I am truly grateful for her.
La'Trell has been an increidble listener, very attentive and caring. I trust that I won't feel judged and that she will appreciate me for whatever I have to bring to a session on any given day. I'm eager to continue working with her because I know she has great wisdom and useful resoruces that she will continue to share with me. It truly can feel her care, empathy, and committment to the role as counselor/therapist.
I have been working with La’Trell for a couple weeks now and having nothing but good things to mention about her. I was very picky at first with choosing my counsellor, I need to feel that good vibe with one and I have so easily with her. She is so dedicated to her work, a great listener, always responding and finding ways through coaching and therapeutic guidelines to make me understand myself better. It is helping on the journey to becoming a better self and towards other relationships. Overall, she is assisting with anxiety, depression, career difficulties, self-esteem, goal-orientation, stress management, coping with life changes, communication problems, boundaries, and life purpose. I look forward to continuing to build my story with her and improve my way of life and thinking. So many thanks!
We have only had a few sessions, but I'm very thankful for La'Trell. She's doing a great job of making me feel heard and helping me organize and prioritize my journey.
I was very nervous when I began counseling, but I am grateful for a good match and look forward to working with La'Trell moving forward.
