I’m Ketra Young-Ariyo and I'm here to guide you through life’s most complex and difficult matters. I truly care about my client's overall well-being and guarantee top of the line counseling services catered to their needs. I have provided a number of specialized therapeutic services to those dealing with challenging life experiences.

Lotus Blossom Counseling was created because I felt there was a need in the community for more options for cost efficient and culturally competent therapy.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S). I have a part time evening and weekend practice that is 100% telehealth (Video) that is based out of Plano, Texas. Allow me to create a safe space for you to process your thoughts and emotions. I would be honored to accompany you and hold a sacred space for your counseling needs.

I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, EMDR and Faith based counseling.

*I do not discriminate against any religion and respect each client's religious beliefs. 


I am able to incorporate faith-based principles into your counseling process at your request and this can be established during your intake consultation.

Since 2007, I have provided a number of specialized therapeutic services to adults dealing with challenging life experiences such as depression, anxiety, infidelity, relationship conflict, infertility, perfectionism, self-esteem issues, pre-marital counseling, and couples counseling. I gained experience working in mental health at CenterPointe Hospital in St. Charles, Missouri as a therapist, as well as Medical City Green Oaks Psychiatric hospital in Dallas as the supervisor of the admissions department and an emergency room crisis interventionist. II obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Southern Illinois University- Edwardsville and a Master of Arts in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri.
