Hi there, I'm Lakesha. Do you feel pulled in a million directions, unable to fit it all in? Are you struggling to keep up with your relationships, work and health? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? Let's work together to identify what's not working and discover the tools needed to help get you back to balance. We'll use a whole self approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body and spirit. I also integrate cognitive restructuring, emotion regulation, and mindfulness to help build resilience and develop a stronger relationship with yourself. Whether you're dealing with overwhelm, relationship issues or cycles of anxiety and depression, I'm here to help. Seeking therapy can feel scary but you're making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Let's work together!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I beleive in equipping clients with the right tools to develop a sense of readiness to handle life's difficulities. Skills are introduced as early as the first session.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My strengths are rapport-building and creating a trusting, non-judgemental environment for clients to explore their greatest challenges.

About Lakesha Lingard

My treatment methods

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

Certified DBT therapist. Frequently requested by clients experiencing anxiety, bipolar depression, and trauma.


Helps clients reflect how on they think about and behave in relationships. They are able to improve their relationships and break unhelpful patterns.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Clients will learn how their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors interact, and the value of changing their negative thinking patterns.

Culturally Sensitive Therapy

help clients—especially those who don’t identify with the dominant culture group—feel understood by their therapist, which often contributes to a stronger therapeutic alliance as they can discuss the client's experiences as they relate to the client’s background and belief system regarding their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, or other important elements that make up someone’s culture and/or identity.
