Ginger Lavender Wilkerson is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She is the CEO and founder of her private counseling practice, “gingerlavendertherapy” and the Mother and Daughter "Manifest Your Dreams" mini-retreat, where she gathers mothers and daughters together to discuss topics related to mental, physical and emotional health.

Ginger is known as the “teen expert” and her work extends beyond her private practice, where she travels across the country speaking and consulting with companies and youth groups on teen girl issues involving mental and emotional health. Her numerous dialogues sparked the development of her own teen girl curriculum entitled “Just Breathe”, which is series of roundtable talks about self-esteem, the importance of self-care, self-reflection and mindfulness. She is an undergraduate of Spelman College and obtained her master degree in Counseling Psychology at Mt. Saint Mary’s College. She has nearly two decades experience working with teen girls and 12 years specializing in their mental health. Ginger is certified in a variety of evidenced based treatment modalities, that help to specifically support individuals who have been affected by complex trauma.

Ginger believes in systemic change and her current experiences include working with a non-profit agency and managing their Children Exposed to Gun Violence Initiative. She collaborates with the City of Los Angeles' Attorney’s office, and the Los Angeles Police Department to ensure that children exposed to gun violence receive immediate support. She has provided trainings to local community stakeholders including the LAPD and Watts Gang Task Force to discuss the impact of violence on children. Ginger’s solo practice specializes in treating teen girls and women with a broad range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, stress, and overall improvement in self-esteem and self-worth. She has found that many are seeking to live their best life despite their many obstacles.

Ginger brings her unique presentation style to a variety of girl’s groups, such as The National Charity League, Young Women in Leadership Conference, KJLH Women’s Health Expo panelist for mental health, Delta Academy, local private/public schools as well as community and faith-based partners. She is not afraid to tackle taboo subjects, which helps her to connect with so many young ladies. These topics include, dating, bullying, peer pressure, adoption, racism, sex, gender identity, depression, anxiety, self- esteem and suicide.

Ginger has been featured and quoted in professional articles about her career and specialty as a teen expert. In 2018 Hueish.com named Ginger in the Top 10 Boss Moms: Melanated Motivated Mommies you need to know.

With all the work that Ginger has achieved throughout her career, she finds her most rewarding accomplishments as being a mom of 3 boys, and a wife to an amazing husband.
