What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

La-Shieka Brooks is a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW) with experience in providing clinical assessments and therapeutic care to the child, adolescent and adult population seeking help dealing with a variety of psychiatric and behavioral issues, including anxiety, trauma, grief, mood disorders and aggressive behaviors. She also has experience in helping families work through conflicts and build a more effective communication style to create a healthier and safer environment. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Psychology at The University of Alabama, where she continued on to receive her Masters in Social Work. La-Shieka utilizes an eclectic style of therapy pulling from collaborative, mindfulness based, strength-based, motivational interviewing, narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, gestalt therapy and holistic approaches in order to provide an individual or family the most effective therapeutic care possible. She believe is creativity and flexibility for clients because therapy is already difficult as it is. La-Shieka believes a person is more than just the decisions that they have made or the events that have happened to them. Therapy is one of the hardest decisions a person can choose to do and she is determined to provide the safe space needed for an individual to heal and grow. She makes a point to acknowledge there will be tears, moments of silence, serious conversations, laughter and moments of relief, but you just have to trust the process and push through together.
