A Bit About Us
Here at The Listening Center: You Talk, We Listen! LLC
We know that change is inevitable and it is our mission to walk alongside you as life hands you an assortment of changes and shifts. Whether good or bad, these shifts can make us feel unbalanced and we begin to crave our "previous normalcy." When LIFE HAPPENS (a new job, adoption, the transition of a loved one, a global pandemic, etc.), we are here! It is our desire that you become the best version of yourself.

Psychotherapy for Children, Adolescents, Adults, Couples & Families
We believe that our mental health is as important as our physical health. There are phases in our lives that we only need an annual check-up. Other times, when an adjustment must be made, several follow-up visits are needed. We also understand that different methods must be used during various life stages. As a result, we offer the following services.
Individual Therapy for Children
Our work with children is based on developmentally appropriate interventions that focus on emotional and/or behavioral issues with tools that include media, toys, and play.
Individual Therapy for Teens
Adolescents and teens often feel invisible or unseen. We partner you parents to discover what your teen is facing. We work with teens about transitions, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, grief, educational-related diagnosis like ADHD, academic deficiencies, IEP's, and instructional responses to intervention.
Individual Therapy for Adults
There are times that ADULTING or life comes at you fast! Let us help you sort out the pieces of your life puzzle. We will work together to gain deeper insight into your current life stressors, barriers, events/circumstances, relationships, or just need to talk.
Are you feeling estranged or disconnected from your partner? We know that relationships can be complicated and complex. Life's transitions can cause stress on the healthiest relationships.
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
Juanessa Booker, LPC, EdD
Juanessa Booker, LPC, EdD is a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as an educator and speaker. I believe that therapy is for everyone, not just a privileged few.
I believe that words are powerful and we have what we say. You can tell what you have been saying, by looking at the type of fruit that you are producing in your life. Your words have the power to enable you to create the life you dream about.
Are you ready to begin to dream again? If so, I would be honored to walk alongside you as you take control of the life that you were meant to live!
