Lakita Allen, LPCA

I believe a child’s behaviors, emotions, academics, and future can be impacted depending on various factors such as family stress, poverty, substance abuse, physical, psychological, verbal and emotional abuse, neglect, parental mental health, and the ways they are disciplined. As a mental health therapist, I feel that no two factors are less than the other, and each one can have a tremendous influence on the child, parent, and family as a whole. 

 My goal in therapy is to bring awareness to the various factors that may be causing challenges within the child, parent or family, implement interventions in order to work through the conflicts and to provide support and resources to allow the client and/or clients to become a more functional individual and/or family.
