About me

Shakea “Kea” Roper is a LCSW/LSCSW in the six following states: Kansas, Missouri, Utah, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Nevada. With over 14 years of experience, I often work with clients to address anxiety, depression, racing undesirable thoughts, and handling day to day life. I have worked in various fields of social work such as: working with survivors of abuse, halfway/re-entry houses, reunification of children with their families, youth homes, and psychiatric hospitals.

Confidential talk without judgement. Hi, I’m Shakea “Kea” Roper. I’m a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). Do you need someone to talk to that will be understanding, compassionate, and encouraging? If so, you have reached the right therapist. I’m a single mother from the inner city. I’ve been through many struggles. From parenting, to family, to work, and just life. I’ve learned you can always work on yourself to help break cycles/patterns that once held you back. I value honesty and keeping it real. When there is free time, I like to sleep, spend time with family, board games, and of course diamond painting/other crafts.

I spent my last college years at the University of Missouri – Columbia (MIZZOU) earning a master’s degree in social work (c/o/2009). In my sessions, I focus on using evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (thinking processes), Strengths Based, Brief Therapy, Problem Solving, DBT (mindfulness), Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), and Solution Focused to help clients improve all areas of their life. My counseling style is active, honest, and straight-forward. Many of my clients have said "Kea is a great listener who isn't afraid to challenge my thoughts." I take the time to care. For me, it's an honor to work together to make progress! One of my favorite quotes is “everything seems impossible until it's done” by Nelson Mandela because I know everyone can push past the uncomfortableness of change to accomplish their goals.

Expect a sense of relief, release, and progress after each session. Each session is geared towards you and your needs. It’s based off what you feel you need to talk about, not a set curriculum. You bring the topic, and we will discuss, and problem solve as needed. If you just want a listener, you can have that also. Know that I will be honest and straightforward with you. Know that your thoughts may be challenged to help your personal growth. You may even have action or thinking tasks to complete.

I believe in you. Recognizing that I am a human who has overcome struggles makes me believe that you can overcome your obstacles as well.

I can hear patterns in what you tell me. I will also gently inform you of these patterns, even negative ones. And I will work with you on what you choose to do about the pattern that has been identified.

I care. With that caring attitude I want you to get the help you need in an adequate time. I do not intend to string you along. We will work towards the goals you set and work towards those goals with you. You will be free to work with the skills and/or new mindset in your world. If you need to return, it’s ok. But the hope is that you do well out in the world.
