Her focus is to assist women in effectively managing their physical, mental, and emotional health with her clinical expertise, compassion, empathy, objectivity, and cultural sensitivity.

Additionally, LaTosha, a girl scout herself and now a volunteer with a cumulative time of 22 years is the leader of a Girl Scout troop of 32 elementary and middle school-age girls.
