T.H.R.I.V.E. Behavioral Health & Consulting, LLC was founded by LaQuista Erinna, LCSW.




LaQuista is a military spouse and Army Veteran with 20 years of service. After returning home from her second deployment to Iraq, she became increasingly concerned with the many challenges Servicemembers faced upon reintegration into their civilian lives. LaQuista realized that she wanted to help people live their best lives possible. She decided to continue her education and pursue a Masters of Social Work. LaQuista spent years providing Veteran homeless outreach and intensive case management with the federal government. Wanting to provide more direct clinical services, she decided to open her own private practice.


As a licensed clinical social worker, LaQuista is trained to treat numerous issues ranging from stress management to more serious mental illness. Her experience includes helping people cope with depression, anxiety, trauma, and PTSD. Today, LaQuista works with individuals, couples, and families to heal from past traumas and current issues that may be affecting their lives. She continues to be an advocate for some of the most vulnerable populations and volunteers regularly with several non-profit organizations in the local community. In addition, LaQuista is an author, speaker, and consultant for medical providers who wish to integrate behavioral health care into their practices.


Training & Education


LaQuista received her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Political Science from Georgia State University. She earned a Masters of Social Work with a specialization in Health and Military Social Work from the University of Southern California.
