Experienced. Certified. Supportive.

I have worked in the helping professions since 2005 and have been a counselor since 2009.  I have a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from the University of Georgia, an Education Specialist degree in Psychology and Counseling with a Mental Health Counseling concentration from Arkansas State University, and a Bachelors of Science degree in Applied Psychology from Bemidji State University.

My counseling approach is grounded in personal construct theory, in practice this means that I work to understand my clients experience and facilitate change from within that context.

Associate Professional Counselor

Hi! Welcome to a new phase in your journey. I am passionate about working with individuals, couples, families, and teenagers who are going through an array of challenges including life transitions/changes, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship struggles, identity, and other age-related issues. I have experience working with adolescents, geriatrics, and cultural and spiritual differences. I hope to create a space that is inviting and allows you to express yourself freely. No matter your situation or mindset there is no judgment here because we are all uniquely and wonderfully made humans.

As humans, we are relational beings who seek connection with others in various ways. We often struggle with knowing how much and how to care for ourselves and others without losing some of life’s balance. I strive to meet people where they are in life and help them to regain and/or strengthen their hope, confidence, resilience, and self-awareness.

It is my wish that you are provided with the additional benefits that counseling can add to your life, including support, compassion, and empathy. I believe in adapting my therapeutic style to best fit your needs. As your counselor, I hope to walk alongside you as you learn to embrace your truth and create balance in your life.


I'm Keisha. I have been in the helping profession as a social worker since 2010, and I love working with individuals, families, and children. Life can be hard at times, and I believe that having someone to walk beside you while you navigate those challenges is crucial to your success and your wellbeing. While I'm new to the counseling profession, I have years of experience helping people change and become the best versions of themselves. I graduated from Southern Adventist University with a Master's Degree in Clinical Counseling. I use evidence-based modalities such as CBT and solution-focused techniques as I believe that the answers to life's questions are within us. It's a matter of having help finding them. I look forward to meeting you where you are and helping you through your journey.
