Ginger Lavender Wilkerson, MS, LMFT

About ME

My name is Ginger Lavender Wilkerson and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and parenting coach. I studied psychology and received my bachelors of arts degree at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. I completed my graduate studies at Mt. Saint Mary's College in Los Angeles receiving my Masters of Science degree in Counseling Psychology.  I have over 17 years’ experience working with tweens and teens and have worked in the mental health field for about 12 years. I have provided psychotherapy for  children, adolescents, adults and families in a variety of clinical settings. I have immense experience providing treatment to adolescence with special needs, both in the private and public school settings. I am clinically trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Functional Family Therapy, which helps to address individuals and families who have been affected by trauma, abuse and neglect. I have a general practice, seeing people with a broad range of issues, including anxiety, depression, stress management, and family problems, work-related stress, and interest in improving self-esteem, health and lifestyle, and quality of life.

My passion is for young ladies to emerging adults and beyond who may be  juggling relationships, school, careers, marriage, and or children. I love supporting the mother/daughter relationships because I understand the importance for adolescents to have a secure and trusting relationship in order to grow and develop. Witnessing their self- discovery when they grow past their previous hurt and pain is rewarding for client and therapist. 

With my years of experience I am also offering a series of parent coaching sessions in order to provide ways for parents to re- engage with their adolescents, bridge the communication gap and support their emotional health. Additionally, I also provide speaking services to organizations, schools, and women's groups. 

I understand that you have your choice in professional clinician and goodness of fit is extremely important, therefore I provide a FREE 15 minute consultation so that you can  receive education and interview your therapist to ensure compatibility.
