Clarity Counseling Services Co.

It is only when a person feels truly heard in a safe place that they can begin to share their authentic selves. It is here that people can over-come their self-limiting doubts and allow themselves to be vulnerable.

Life can be complicated and it can be very easy to feel hopeless. I help a variety of people find their way through the darkest parts of their lives and into the light that shines in all of us. It takes a tremendous amount of strength to reach out for help and I will honor that strength. You can expect these results when you work with me as I help you find your way again.

Lola holds a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work from Florida State University, and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She has extensive training through Postpartum Support International with additional trainings through the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Maternal Mental Health Now and bibo mia, of which has enabled her to center her practice around whole-person approaches with Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Infertility, Pregnancy Loss and Grief, Physical and Emotional Birth Trauma that may include medical neglect/abuse, the “Magical Motherhood Myth” that often results in unrealistic and self-loathing expectations of self, and life stressors related to feelings of being trapped in the “roles” of woman, mother and caregiver. Postpartum care is a necessity, not a privilege. Adjusting to the birth of a baby can be challenging. The sooner you contact help, the sooner you will start to feel better.

Lola also has a niche for adolescent males and females and adult women that struggle with maladaptive perfectionism and people-pleasing behaviors, anxiety with OCD thoughts and behaviors, negative self-perception and loss of self in toxic and cycling relationships.

Although Lola has spent the majority of her career providing services to women and adolescent females, she also works closely with the partners and families of her clients to ensure successful outcomes. Some of their own personal struggles may be depression, anxiety, excessive worry and perfectionism, feelings of emptiness and hopelessness.

Lola is currently the Field Coordinator for Thomas University’s Division of Social Work Program, where she is honored to mentor students transitioning from the role of student into that of the capable professional. Lola has also served as Visiting Assistant Professor at the Florida State University College of Social Work and as an Adjunct Professor at Southwest Georgia Technical College’s Social Work Assistant Program.
