No matter how you are feeling right now, I want you to know that you can conquer this. I believe that with the right tools and hard work that every person can move to a comfortable point of wellness. I would love to be the person to help you complete your work.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the Central Texas area. I have spent the last 11 years helping a variety of different age groups work towards solutions utilizing my counseling degree. I have worked with children of all ages, teens, military populations, and couples. I love counseling or partnering (as I call it), to help others.

I utilize a variety of counseling methodologies which include motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, Narrative counseling, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Combining these different approaches has allowed me to make sure that each person is comfortably served while working with me. I am certified in trauma-informed practices and I am a nationally certified mental health first aid trainer.

I hope that you will take the next steps to work towards the process of feeling better. As your therapist I will partner with you to work through your emotions so that I can help you set goals that you can reach to create change in your life. This is your process and I am just a guide. If you are ready I am here to help direct your path to change.

I look forward to working with you!

Takiesha is great! Our sessions have been invaluable even when I just showed up, not having completed the assignment. Takiesha was able to meet me where I was and keep me moving toward my goals. This quality has served me well because I am meeting my goals…yayyyy!!! Kudos to Takiesha!

If this was a dating site then I would have taken my profile off already because I have found my match. I was a bit hesitant coming into therapy because I have done it before and I just don’t feel connected and understood or heard. With Takiesha I have never felt more comfortable sharing so truthfully with her. She made me feel safe and not judged for the things I say because I judge myself a lot. I felt not rushed as we discussed different things in our session. I was able to talk to her and she was so patient to hear me out. It’s only been 2 sessions but she has helped me work to understand myself more and thus helped me unknot some parts of the things I struggle with a lot. She told me about a method of stones in the garden to help me to always come back to take a look at some concrete things I have written down to empower my decision making skills when I may be at a time of weakness. I have used this method several times and it has been able to ground me. I’m a devout christian and counseling and prayer work hand in hand and I can see God Work in many ways through our sessions. I have already been spreading the word for my friends to try counseling with better help because it’s so easy and it has kickstart my new discovery of stronger, better self.
