Latisha is amazing! I have spent much of my adult life in therapy and I have never had a therapist so committed to genuinely caring about her patients/clients.

I am so thankful I was matched with Latisha as my therapist. Conversations with her are welcoming and warm, and I always leave feeling seen and heard. We have bi-weekly video chats but she always checks in with me multiple times a week via chat to see how I’m feeling, or I’ll send her journal entries and she gets back to me right away. She genuinely cares about her clients!!

Work with me!
