So far in the process of working with LaKisha she has really helped my husband and I start to engage in difficult conversations. I think regularly focusing on our relationship in positive spaces/timeframes is a big help to healthy dialogue and we have her to thank for that.
LaKisha is love.
Patient, Kind, Consistent.
A heart warming smile.
I don’t like therapy but she makes it easier.
A soft landing space.
So far LaKisha has been appropriate, we have just started so I can’t give a complete review though it’s looking promising
She's really good at what she does
She is wonderful at listening and giving guidance.
Lakisha can see what we are saying and aren’t saying. I am thrilled with the fit so far and look to make more progress! Thanks!
LaKisha listens to what I have to say and helps me to explore my choices, so that I am able to make a well thought out decision not one that is impulsive.
LaKisha is a wonderful listener and counselor. She makes my partner and I feel heard, understood, and cared about during our sessions. LaKisha uses personalized explanations, detailed insights and ideas that she shares with us every week. Not only has my relationship with my partner greatly improved, I have learned many lessons towards my own self growth outside of my relationship.
Amazing listener. Amazing advice. Strong faith.
She is very great counselor and really put things in perspective for me and my wife.
LaKisha Erwin has been very flexible with my busy schedule and has offered expert advice in my counseling. Every time we finished a session she gave me lots of things to consider and think about that I hadn't brought to mind. I see myself as a very objective individual that can see things from other points of views and yet she was still able to provide me a perspective I hadn't considered. I would gladly recommend her to anyone.
So far LaKisha has been so kind, an amazing listener, full of knowledge and super motivating. My favorite part is that she gives homework! Believe it or not it is so helpful. She truly helps take the steps towards healing. She’s has truly been a blessing in this hard time in my life.
LaKisha is amazing! It feels really comfortable to talk to her and after the sessions we’ve had, it’s so clear how much wisdom and knowledge she has on people and relationships. After trying traditional therapy, both me and my husband like this method a lot! Having the sessions in the message center also really helps when processing certain ideas and feelings. In traditional in-person therapy, I sometimes felt like it was easy to forget the advice the therapist gave a few days later, but with the messaging sessions you can actually go back to it and reread it, which for us helps. This is our first time doing couple’s therapy together and we really like how well LaKisha is at balancing time with both partners and helping both of us understand each other, while still feeling validated / understood in our own feelings. We definitely feel very lucky to have been matched right away to a counselor who is such a great fit!
First - LaKisha has been absolutely wonderful. Me and my partner both agree that she has been the best we have ever had (we have both done conventional counseling with different therapists). She is very present and directs your thoughts to the right issues while staying objective and compassionate.
This is also the most affective counseling system I have ever experienced. The fact that it is online has many benefits, such as:
1. Chatroom - you and your counselor will have a assigned chatroom only for you. This allows you to have ongoing counseling every day as you answer counselor's questions and write down your thoughts daily. The work does not only happen once a week going to the doctor's office and then forgetting about it for the rest of the week. This is daily counseling, very affective!
2. Live Sessions - you can schedule live sessions as well with your counselor to "meet up" and discuss face to face over video chat. This is no different than going to conventional therapy, expect for you are in the comfort of your home and perhaps feel more comfortable as well.
3. Worksheets and homework - during the course of the counseling you also get homework to do and worksheets to fill out which are very helpful. None of the other therapists have ever provided things like that to us, so we think this is great.
I was hesitant to do online counseling at first, but we are both now so impressed with the system and we love it! Excited to continue our progress with LaKisha :)
I love this entire process and it is helping me in my life and relationship.
