Today we’d like to introduce you to LaDeidra Stokes-Roberts. Them and their team share their story with us below:
LaDeidra Stokes-Roberts, an entrepreneur, mental health counselor, and kids’ life coach, was born in Jersey City, NJ, and raised in Estill, South Carolina. She has two children Deyonna Stokes-Roberts and Kaden Roberts. LaDeidra Stokes-Roberts began her educational journey at South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, SC.
She has a Master of Arts in Human Services Counseling/Marriage and Family Cognate from Liberty University. She also has a Master of Science in Human Services/ Social & Community Services from Capella University. She is currently working towards her Master of Social Work at Capella University. She is a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern for the state of Florida.
LaDeidra and her immediate family members begin brainstorming ideas to help children and families as well as continuing the legacy of their mother Richardean B. Stokes who passed away in February 2016. The business begins with its very first program “RBS Teen Nights” where they provide life skills, creative arts, and cooking skills.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
During the pandemic, I lost most of my clientele, lost my contract, and was out of my office for two years.
Fast forward to today, I am currently rebuilding my clientele, I am working towards rebuilding my contract agreements with community providers, and I currently complete face-to-face visits back in my office in Ocala, Florida.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about RBS Counseling & Educational Services, LLC.?
LaDeidra is the owner/founder of RBS Counseling & Educational Services, LLC. and RBS Consulting & Training Services. The program provides a combination of mental health services, educational services, and life coaching services to children and families.
One of the unique attributes of the program is being able to utilize the child’s interests and strengths to enhance the session. There are a lot of hands-on activities and fun activities completed during each session that connects education and life coaching.

Some of the programs that are provided to give back to the community include back-to-school care events, mental health/wellness forums, reaching beyond self-workshops, educational workshops, radio interviews about mental health advocacy, podcast interviews about mental health advocacy, and other activities.
LaDeidra also provides RBS Fidget Boxes to assist children with focusing, frustration, anxiousness, hyperactivity, and restlessness. I want readers to believe in her craft. I want my story to inspire others to understand that you can turn your passion, talents, and interest into a business venture.
What are your plans for the future?
I would like to see my company expanding in different states where I can provide more strength-based interventions to children, adults, couples, and families.
I want to provide numerous amounts RBS Fidget Boxes to schools, communities, and families as a tool to help children as a coping mechanism for their challenges in school, home, and community.
To reach children as a coping tool I also want to provide professional development and training in public and private schools.
