Hello, I am Laquisha Gibson! I'm a licensed social worker. I provide therapy /counseling to clients in need. I earned my Bachelors in Human Services from Arkansas Baptist College and my Masters in Social Work from the University of Arkansas Little Rock. I've interned in many different clinical settings while in grad school and currently work as a school social worker where I am gaining more clinical experience. I have  therapeutic and counseling skills and am a kind, empathic therapist. I am aware of how people think/feel about themselves, interact with one another and with their families. I've had success guiding clients through difficult circumstances and toward healing. I offer support and assistance to people who want to change their life for the better through my clinical experience, understanding, and compassion. In order to help people overcome traumas and barriers, I take delight in offering a safe and encouraging environment. I will listen intently and provide my best professional advice in an effort to assist you. I am trustworthy and reliable. You can rely on me to approach each interaction we have with empathy and a focus. I appreciate you starting this important journey and letting me be a part of it. Meet with you soon :).
