Latrice Robbins, LLMSW

You deserve to heal.

I want to be a safe person for you to trust and feel comfortable with. Together, we'll find a way forward.

Life happens and we need the tools to learn how to navigate through various challenges and overcome past trauma. No one can do it alone. That is why therapy is so important and plays a big role in helping people to overcome and heal.

With me, you can expect to feel warmly welcomed, safe, supported, heard, and validated.  I understand that there are a variety of emotions that you may feel when meeting a new therapist. I just want you to know that your emotions are all valid and it is okay to feel those emotions. It’s my responsibility to help you feel as comfortable as possible and I take this very seriously. Upon meeting, if there is anything that I can do to make you feel more comfortable, please don’t be afraid to let me know. I truly want to make sure you have a good therapeutic experience and receive the very best services you deserve.

I love meeting people where they are at and working with them to achieve their goals. I’m honored to walk alongside people and witness them taking baby steps forward to improve their overall mental health. I firmly believe that each individual should be treated with respect no matter their culture, race, identity, gender, ability, or any other form of human difference. Everyone is unique in their own way. No two treatment plans are ever the same. Let’s talk about what might work best for YOU!

"Latrice is one of the nicest people that you will ever meet in your life! Everybody knows her as a warm, loving person in her community because she is always going above and beyond to help others. She is involved in everything and a true gift to the world."
"Her dedication to helping others is very powerful. She is one of those people that you just instantly feel connected to. I think Latrice would literally bend over backwards to support someone in need. It's really inspiring."
"I can laugh with Latrice while celebrating happy moments and also cry in front of her while recovering from painful times. She makes me feel so comfortable that I can always be myself. EXCELLENT with trauma and overall a truly great person."

My own personal journey through life inspired my dedication to helping others heal from whatever is causing them pain. At a very young age, I was able to witness my grandmother be a blessing to other people. Whether it was family, friends, neighbors, or a total stranger; the gift of love radiated from her. I would watch people come to her in tears and leave with a smile on their face. She had a way of making people feel better when they were in her presence. She would literally give you the clothes off her back and fix you a plate of food. So many people came to our home in need of her counsel and love. Even if it was just a hug, it made them feel better. I used to always say, “When I grow up, I want to be just like her and help people feel better.” 

At the time, I didn’t know about the field of Social Work, but as I got older and developed my professional path, I discovered that becoming a Social Worker/Therapist was my calling and life purpose. This is not merely a job to me. It is my greatest passion and purpose. I believe each and every person is capable of living an extraordinary life and I want to help you achieve all of your goals and dreams. We all need a non-judgmental supporter on our side. I would love to be that person for you.
