Kiesha is a licensed professional counselor with more than 10 years of professional experience in the mental health field. She is currently working on her dissertation for her Ph.D in Medical Family Therapy from Saint Louis University. Her experience in mental health has provided her with a holistic perspective that human beings are biological, psychological and social beings all at the same time. She applies this biopsychosocial mindset to her practice. She specializes in working with couples, individuals and families.

Kiesha applies a variety of techniques to her practice including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy and the Family System Model. Her background includes counseling individuals and families faced with substance abuse issues and behavioral concerns. She enjoys working with families to address concerns and foster change. By working through family issues with clients, Kiesha’s hope is that clients learn to understand and empathize with one another to bring growth.

Kiesha counsels individuals in the area of career-related concerns and career transition as well. She will soon be a published co-author of a chapter on career transition.
