Begin Your Journey to Healing

I am not my sister's keeper I am my sister, when she heals, I heal.  Truth will correct all errors in my mind.

Meet Libby

Hello and welcome.  My name is Libby and I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, with over 20 years experience working with adolescents, college students, and families representing some of the most vulnerable populations. After several years working in higher education, I shifted to a career in community non-profit. There I planned and implemented direct service programs for youth and families including, parent support groups, therapy services for runaway/homeless youth and facilitating restorative justice circles.

 

In 2017, I opened LL Therapy Solutions LLC, a private practice for mental wellness that is dedicated to honoring the culture, and providing a safe space that empowers individuals to heal. As a Black woman and on my own journey, I recognize the huge stigma connected to addressing mental health treatment in Black and Brown communities. Several barriers contribute to the gap in care, including lack of health insurance, lack of cultural representation among clinicians, and fear of being stigmatized in the community. The biggest obstacle is ‘silence’. I believe these barriers have kept many suffering alone - in silence, giving way to unhealthy generational patterns. Through therapy, I aim to help interrupt these unhealthy patterns and change the narrative.

Practice Areas

*COVID-19 Statement

All therapy services, including the free 15 minute consultation are provided via an online video-conferencing platform versus in person.  I utilize a secure, confidential, HIPAA compliant software for all sessions. Online therapy has many advantages, including increased accessibility, comfort and convenience. Research has shown that online therapy is just as effective as in-person treatments, and clients sometimes feel safer in an online platform. Online therapy’s popularity has skyrocketed with increased health and safety concerns related to COVID-19.

The Process

FREE 15 min Consultation
Initial Intake
Ongoing Therapy

We'll begin our time together with a free 15-minute video consultation.  You’ll learn more about the therapy process and how therapy can help you meet your goals.  You’ll also have the opportunity to address questions or concerns, and collaboratively decide on next steps.

During the initial intake, we'll meet via a confidential video conferencing platform for a more in-depth assessment of your concerns.  I will ask you a series of structured questions to gain a better understanding of your needs.  I encourage clients to use this first session to consider if they feel comfortable with me as a therapist. I will also assess if I’m the best person to help with your particular concerns. 

Ongoing therapy sessions are 60-minutes long. We’ll meet on a regular basis so that you can get the most out of therapy and meet your goals.  I will occasionally ask you to complete a symptoms questionnaire to monitor progress and ensure that our work together is providing the change you desire.
