About Me

Hello!
My name is Dr. Lashanda Baylor and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in Mississippi. I am also a Doctor of Professional Counseling. I have been providing Behavioral Therapy for a wide array of issues and populations for 20 years.

I would describe my approach as goal oriented, and client centered. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). Both modalities are hands-on, practical approaches to problem-solving.
I believe in treating everyone with respect and dignity. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She always does such an amazing job in our sessions every time is different but everyone I feel more confident in myself in the decisions that I’m making. She gives amazing advice and really listens to what I have to say

Dr. Baylor is an experienced and excellent counsellor with whom all conversations flow. She listens, gives you a solid analysis with tools to improve and makes poignant observations during therapy. She is my fourth counsellor, and the one I chose to stick with. I can totally recommend Dr. Baylor to anyone looking for guidance and support. It will be worth it.

Dr.Baylor is amazing. So easy to talk to and is very knowledgeable in her field. She’ll send me messages during the week checking in and with some techniques I can try, which I really appreciate. At the end of our first meeting she was able to provide key insight on my circumstances that helped me so much. So much so that I even had improvement during the first week. I’d highly recommend her to anyone and am glad to be working with her.

Dr. Baylor has been incredibly patient and understanding. She sends messages of encouragement and support throughout the week, and is always willing to give you advice when your anxiety/depression is overwhelming. Very flexible and understanding with schedules. Glad I found her!

Dr. Baylor is supportive, understanding and caring. She understands what it means to go through grief, that it doesn’t heal overnight and it takes time. She gives me time and listens. This is so important and I greatly appreciate having this safe space to share my pain.
I’m so relieved to have Dr. Baylor as my counsellor and
