Hello, my name is Lanika, I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (LGPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC) with three years of experience in the counseling profession. I have a passion for providing quality counseling services to early childhood, late childhood, and adolescents with mental health/behavioral disorders. I received a Master’s of Education in School Counseling from Bowie State University with a concentration in Eclectic Counseling.
I implement Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy and Mindfulness Strategies to collaboratively work on goals defined by my clients. I provide a safe space where clients can tell their story, gain self-awareness, and implement healthy strategies to see their lives improve.
I have a plethora of work experience including: Child & Adolescent Rehabilitation Counselor, School Counselor, and Early Childhood Behavior Therapist. I value honesty, integrity, and open communication within the therapeutic relationship. I truly believe that therapy is beneficial for everyone; however not every therapist is for every client- transparency is key.
I would like to welcome you to join a safe space where I will help you practice self-reflection, develop healthy coping techniques, and improve communication to reach your goals.
ABOUT IMARA COUNSELING, LLC
As a group mental health practice, Imara Counseling Services seeks to create a warm, inviting and safe space for clients to explore the unique challenges they are going through. Let's be honest, COVID-19 has really disrupted everything we view as normal. And as practice we work tenaciously with clients to see the positive changes and growth they desire. Our clinicians see therapy as a partnership and an opportunity for clients to benefit from the skills they attain.
We work with adults, teenagers, and children (5+) who are suffering with a range of concerns including relationship trouble, mood disorders, such as depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, and other mental health challenges. We also see couples in all stages of their relationships. If you need help, reach out for help today!
