Lakesha Hayes

(MS, LMHC)

About Me

Thank you for taking the time to become more acquainted with me. I am an experienced licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida. I have counseled individuals, couples, and children over the past 6 years. I graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University with a Masters of Science degree in Counseling Psychology. I have done agency work as well as private practice work.

My passion is helping individuals and couples of all walks of life navigate the challenges life brings. I enjoy helping couples identify unhealthy individual behavioral patterns and thoughts affecting their ability to emotional connect and problem solve as a unit. I use a holistic approach, cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused strategies when working with couples and other relational issues. My goal, when working with couples, is to help them regain intimate emotional connection, enhance ability to actively listen and communicate effectively, and problem solve.

I believe as human beings we are made to connect and be in relationship with one another. I also believe that some of us do not always possess the skills necessary to maintain a sense of balance in relationships. I am here to provide tools for your relationship that can be utilized and stored for whatever circumstance life may bring.

I look forward to being a part of your journey!

Lakesha Hayes is amazing at connecting with you immediately. She makes you feel comfortable to open up from the very first session. She ensures you thoroughly understand every question or homework assignment that she gives you. I appreciate the role-playing in the sessions with my partner. I highly recommend!
