Latoya "Nicole" Edwards, LCSW
Clinical Director & Lead Therapist

Are you the strong friend, but sometimes feel that you have no one to lean on? Having relationships issues, hate your job, or need help navigating this thing called Adult-ing? I enjoy working with individuals who appear to be whole, yet feel lost and unseen; I address the impact that both trauma and healing have on the WHOLE person. Providing out the box therapy, with a holistic twist, I infuse humor, reiki, yoga essential oils, and realness. I have dedicated my life to helping Millennials, Gen Zs (ages 16- 45), and their families break generational curses.

​I practice a mind, body, and soul approach. Meaning, I address the person and their environment, helping young adults get their whole life! I am not a nod and smile therapist. I roll up my sleeves with you, and together we come up with solutions to tackle this thing called life. There are going be times that you are not gonna like me, but a part of therapy is unpacking and revealing some things that we oftentimes try to mask and hide. My goal is to work along side you and help you become a better person than when you started with me.

Sheryl Dunn, LCSW

Being a native of Suffolk, Virginia, I felt it was imperative to initiate my career and community service in the Hampton Roads area. I have worked in the capacity of a case manager for a local Community Services Board servicing individuals with dual diagnoses: substance use as well as serious mental health disorders. Thereafter and intermittently I have had the honor to work as a medical social worker for hospice agencies. I have also worked as a care manager for a high level hospital system prior to transitioning to become a care coordinator for a managed care organization.

Therapy has always been a passion of mine. It is a privilege to have others entrust their thoughts with me. Once I had the opportunity to see the powerful impact therapy can have on folks I have felt compelled to return to private practice.

I attended the prestigious Norfolk State University for undergraduate and graduate studies in Social Work. I look forward to further advances in my studies not only for myself but the well-being of populations I have the pleasure to work with.
