Hi! I'm LaShawnda


I'm a wife (military spouse), mommy of two, licensed therapist,  and lover of laughter!  I help women reach their personal and professional goals by overcoming anxiety, fear, and worry.  These issues are often times the reason why goals aren't reached, dreams aren't fulfilled, and happiness isn't achieved.  As a wife, mom, and professional I know the struggles women face to do it all. Often times, their own desires get put on the shelf. I'm focused on helping women live successful lives that include them having satisfaction at home and in their careers. I believe that it is possible for every woman to live their best life if they are willing to put in the work!

My approach to counseling and coaching is supportive and direct.  It is very important to me that my clients feel supported, feel comfortable to be their true selves, and are challenged to make positive progress. My therapeutic approach is solution focused, yet realistic. I enjoy helping clients set clear goals and plans. 

I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in mental health counseling. I am a licensed professional counselor in North Carolina and Maryland, a nationally certified counselor, and a certified clinical military counselor. Throughout my counseling career of over seven years,  I have worked with a variety of populations with a plethora of concerns. I found that I have a passion for working with women in the area of anxiety, fear, and worry to reach their goals...and thus McLaurin Mental Wellness was born.
