I'm Lakita Allen, MA, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychotherapist
Co-Founder of True to Herself Therapy
I am so PROUD of you for taking these first steps for you, someone you love, or your family. It is such a blessing to be able to provide a safe, caring, and supportive space for my clients where I can enable them to live a more productive and satisfying life, help them cope with new situations, challenges, or emotions, promote good decision making skills and improve relationships.
When working with individuals and families, my goal is to assist with improving interactions and conflicts with others, diagnose and treat psychological disorders, guide clients through crises, address problematic relational or behavioral patterns, challenge negative or irrational thought patterns, and replace dysfunctional behaviors with healthier ones.
I utilize a variety of psychotherapy techniques to help clients experiencing psychological, behavioral and/or emotional challenges. I specialize in areas such as, anxiety, family and/or peer conflicts, behavioral and emotional challenges, bullying, anger, stress, adjustment challenges, challenges with focus, attention, hyperactivity, low self-esteem, and much more. My ideal clients are female toddlers, preschoolers, middle childhood, teenagers and female adults. I also treat male children on a case to case basis.
Everyone goes through overwhelming or stressful times in life and I am so passionate about being able to work alongside my clients and help them overcome those challenges in a nonjudgmental, professional and empathetic manner. I strive to empower my clients to become their truest authentic selves. I look forward to work with you and/or your family on this new journey of healing and change!
You are ENOUGH! You are BEAUTIFUL! You are DESERVING!
