La'Shay is an energetic therapist, research scientist, and author. She is a licensed therapist and provides private and online therapy. Vocationally, she is a trained social epidemiologist. Having Received both her masters from Columbia University, as a research scientist, she investigates major mood and depressive disorders.

She partners with other researchers to study the effects, facilitators, barriers, and stigma of accessing mental health care. Specifically, she studies stigma and other aspects that surround major mood and depressive disorders including toxic stress and the impact of trauma. Her research and evidence-based practice interventions have to lead to the decreased stigma of mental illness in the Harlem community. She studied spiritual formation at Fordham University. She is also a consultant for Columbia University, where she has helped to design research studies and is currently helping to implement various projects with the Department of Health and at the newest Columbia University Building, the Mortimer Zuckerman Mind, Brain Behavior Institute.

Her favorite quote is “Don't dig up in doubt what you planted in faith” ~ Elisabeth Elliot

A Message From La'Shay
Many of the clients that I partner with are individuals who are looking for joy but may struggle with past issues, hurt, and pain. Some of the therapeutic partners struggle with rejection, race, class and gender issues that are impacting their peace. Or emotionally or physically absent parents, which can create feelings of abandonment and lack of self-worth. Others that I work with are looking for their niche in life and need help processing their emotions or just need an extra ear. I have partnered with many who are along their grieving process journey or dealing with a break-up. Some may come from emotionally or physically abusive backgrounds, be it from parents or partners. Together we can build the future you want, need and have imagined!

While I use a variety of different modalities we will find those that best meet your needs. I can help you find inner peace, problem-solving and emotionally focused solutions. Specialties include Relationships, Adult Children of Immature Parents (emotionally unstable parents) -Trauma, Sexual Abuse, Stress, Faith and Spirituality, Depression &Anxiety. Life can be challenging and at times debilitating. Sometimes just talking with someone and being able to process with one who is nonjudgmental is what we all need. I invite you to partner with me as we seek to bring you into the fullness you were created to be. Let's seek clarity and meaning together. As a trained research scientist, we will find hope!
