About Me

Hi, I'm LaShica!

I currently live in Charlotte, NC but I'm originally from Marion, SC. I am married with 2 kids and in my free time I enjoy: lifting weights, playing softball, and running.
I hold a Post- Certificate in School Counseling from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, Masters of Arts Degree in Counseling , Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology with a minor in Psychology and I am a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of School Counseling. I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor.

I have over 10 years of experience in counseling adolescents and adults with mental illness, developmental disabilities and substance abuse problems. I have experience working as a School Counselor providing career, academic, social and emotional counseling to students ranging from 4-21 years in age, along with their family. I have worked in group homes providing therapeutic individual and group counseling. I have worked with families providing individual and family counseling in the clinical and home setting.

My approach to therapy comes from an eclectic base with a strong focus on cognitive-behavioral and person centered therapy. I believe that a person should be able to make choices about their future and should be given all available resources to make an informed choice.

I look forward to working with you and your family in the future!!

Written by J.E. on Feb 07, 2020 after counseling with LaShica for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

LaShica was amazing. She helped me without "telling" me what decision to make. She helped me think deeply about things I would have never thought of. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a kind and understanding person to help them.

She has been positive, and I found her tools helpful. I was scared to do therapy or felt that it wasn’t for me but it has been helpful in having an “outside” person in helping me learn to control and self-evaluate my emotions.

Being able to talk to her makes me feel at ease and like I’m being heard. I spent so many years of my life not feeling like anyone was listening to me and using teen counseling and LaShica has helped me a lot.

Written by J.I. on Apr 23, 2019 after counseling with LaShica for 5 months

LaShica was exactly the help my child needed during a crucial time of life. I think it was a great investment in my child's future, and I'm glad we had this opportunity. I can't speak to the counseling directly since my child received it, but I'm confident she's excellent.

LaShica takes time to help me and has helped teach me different coping strategies for my issues.

Written by K.R. on Mar 04, 2019 after counseling with LaShica for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

LaShica is absolutely amazing! I have had her as my counselor for a year or so and she has helped me through so much. She is always there when I need to talk and helps me understand what I'm going through and how to deal with it. She is the BEST!

Written by A.N. on Jan 08, 2019 after counseling with LaShica for 1 week

I've just had my first session with LaShica and, while I didn't expect it so soon, I got so much perspective and practicality out of our one session. I appreciated that she affirmed boundaries while giving me some "grounding in reality," and that she helped me to see different options within those boundaries.

Having had a few sets of face-to-face counseling, I started the session with anxiety about "online counseling." But when it was over I felt peaceful and prepared to take my next step. LaShica's such a good counsellor - direct, but not pushy; down to earth; and insightful. I am so grateful!

Great at responding and very understanding, even when I ramble on over and over again about the same things. She offers new ways to look at things and I would highly recommend her for your counseling.

Written by A.A. on Jul 30, 2018 after counseling with LaShica for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, parenting, and self esteem

LaShica has been a welcome presence after several years of not-quite-right counselors. Her warm and understanding demeanor, as well as her openness make our sessions feel less like an evaluation and more like a conversation where we explore new concepts and behaviors in a constructive, friendly way. I feel like she has taken the time to understand where I am coming from and challenges me to grow in a positive, attainable way.

Written by K.E. on Jul 22, 2018 after counseling with LaShica for 2 weeks on issues concerning family, and parenting

LaShica has done a great job being available for needed sessions and responding to messages. She listens first and then asks follow up questions to truly help narrow down the best strategies for the situation. LaShica also checks in on you every few days and I have really appreciated that she cares about helping.

Written by D.A. on Jul 16, 2018 after counseling with LaShica for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, self esteem, and career

LaShica has been very compassionate and understanding when it comes to hearing about my issues. She checks in on me often and I'll be sure to seek out more help from her when I need in the future.

Written by S.T. on Jun 29, 2018 after counseling with LaShica for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

She has been really great, I appreciate her checking in when she doesn't hear from me. Makes me feel that someone cares about me.

Written by O.Y. on Apr 20, 2018 after counseling with LaShica for 2 weeks

I have been speaking to LaShica for just a couple of weeks but so far so great! I have always been apprehensive about counseling/ therapy and have put it off for many years. Upon our very first conversation, LaShica made me feel very relaxed. The session wasn’t clinical as I had expected, I could relate with her.. she really listened and I was able to be myself. We have a call every week and she checks in on numerous occasions over the week. Again, this has really helped to build rapport and though it’s only been a few weeks - I already feel lighter and things are looking up for me. I would highly recommend!

Written by B.E. on Apr 15, 2018 after counseling with LaShica for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, self esteem, and career

LaShica has really helped me tackle my issues and gain control of my life again in a short amount of time. Thank you so much!

Written by L.A. on Apr 09, 2018 after counseling with LaShica for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and intimacy-related

LaShica has been a tremendous help during a difficult time in my life. I live somewhere with very limited access to mental health professionals, and this has been a wonderful resource for me. Thank you!
