Hi, I'm Lafaya

Lafaya Mitchell, LMFT @lafaya_way is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who serves kids who are wired differently, their families, and those in the community who have the most access to and interaction with children/teens/adults experiencing social challenges.

She is determined to help families create pathways to peace in their homes through better access to the “Real Truth” in each person’s desire to connect, be heard, and be true to their innate desire to get along with others (especially loved ones).

She created PARENTS EMPOWERING PARENTS (PEP), an online course based on the first 3 books of her parenting book series, “The Lafaya Way” for parents which gives parents immediately tangible ways to: Reduce meltdown behavior, promote a sense of togetherness and team collaboration in the home, and how to teach others what they need to know about their children to encourage improved emotional responses and behaviors.

She loves to play professional-level poker tournaments, create content that helps families and communities heal, and love on her 3 biological kids (ages 17+) and the 3 kiddos she was blessed to be able to foster (all under age 5 yrs). She’s a Sci-Fi and “all things superhero geek” and loves to teach others how to turn perceived challenges into superpowers, the same as she has in her own life!
