About

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Florida. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, rational-emotive therapy, and more. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you with skills for a more productive life.

Lakesha T Bowie's Groups

DBT Skills Group

Reduced $30 per session. DBT group is not a process group nor a support group. DBT skills group is more like a class without the pressure of tests and grades. Skills introduced will include Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Homework will be assigned to help you try out the tools in your life. DBT group is therapeutic but it’s not therapy. I require that clients be attending outside weekly individual therapy while participating in this group.

Grief Support Group

You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. E4P Grief Support Group is a grief recovery support group where you can find help and healing for the hurt of losing a loved one.
