“I strongly believe in a holistically integrated approach to therapy. Throughout my work with adults and children, I have seen firsthand the remarkable impact that faith has in helping people to heal and live healthier lives.” - Kesha Brake

A licensed professional counselor, Kesha joined Samaritan’s clinical in November of 2022, bringing with her an impressive background working with adults, families, and children. She counsels children as young as age four and throughout their teenage years. She continues to use her sharply honed therapy skills at Samaritan’s Gibsonia office as well as through teletherapy.

At her previous positions at Familylinks, Glade Run Lutheran Services, the Youth Advocate Program, and Naomi House, Kesha practiced both individual and family therapy, facilitated an anger management group for children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and mentored truant youth. Kesha worked collaboratively with her young clients’ parents, support systems, and teachers to design and monitor their treatments.

 

Counseling children as outpatients and in school settings further enriched Kesha's expertise in guiding children and adolescents toward successful outcomes. Her work also extended to consulting with psychiatrists and training new employees.

Kesha earned her Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Chatham University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Carlow University.
