About Me

Is something keeping you up at night or you are unable to focus at home and/or school? There is a chance that you may need to speak to someone and I may be that someone you need to speak with.

My name is Shalika Eaddy-Henderson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have been working in the field for about 8 years and have worked with several populations (homeless, substance abuse, children, adolescence and adults). I have worked in schools, where school-based therapy was provided. This was my opportunity to see first hand how students are experiencing stressors associated with school and/or home. These things often lead to depression, anxiety, substance abuse, self-esteem, anger management, etc.

My approach to therapy is to meet the client where they are in a prompt and appropriate manner. I like to begin my sessions with how your week, day or last hour has been and then move into the therapeutic process. However, it will be totally up to you how you would like to begin the process as THERAPY IS FOR YOU!

I attended the University of New Haven (CT) for my Master's in Public Administration and Fordham University (NY) for my Master's in Social Work and have enjoyed every bit of the transition from being employed with a bank to engaging in the therapeutic process with individuals. Additionally, I am close to completing my Doctorate in Social Work at Capella University.

It will be a pleasure working with you when and if you are ready!

Shalika was quick to respond to messages and helped me tremendously in a time of confusion and anxiety. She is respectful, courteous, and genuine. I am grateful for the time she spent with me and helped me address my concerns and worries. i would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking help.

Shalika has been amazing. This is our second stint back with her as we have tried a few local counselors that accept insurance but none helped our son as much as she has. He has been going through some things and we knew exactly who to come to for help. I cannot say enough positive things about her. We tried to look elsewhere for cost purposes only but when it really hits the fan Shalika is worth every penny and then some.

I've only had a few sessions with her. And admittedly don't communicate as often as I should. But I can tell by already the few interactions I've had with my counselor so far are very positive. She's very sweet and compassion. Shalika is a great listener. But she makes sure to not just listen. And really tries to guide you which atleast by me is what a good therapist does.

I would highly recommend.

So caring, understanding, and real. Honest feedback that supports healthy development.

Sharika is amazing. She is my third counselor here at teen counseling and by far the third one was the charm she fits me perfectly it’s very intuitive and direct which I greatly appreciate. I don’t have the time or the patience for standard couch counseling I need someone to just talk to openly honestly and matter-of-factly she is definitely the one. Like a confidant that is also a mirror and will help you see between the lines of your frustration lack of self-confidence negative inner voice and so on.

Although I’ve only had three sessions with Shalika so far, I feel really comfortable talking to her and believe that she is a very competent and engaged therapist. Her caring nature makes me glad I overcame my initial hesitation to seek therapy, and I look forward to working through certain issues with her help. I would definitely recommend Shalika Eaddy-Henderson.
