Dr. Labat earned her bachelor of art’s degree from Fisk University with induction into Phi Beta Kappa National Honor Society. She then completed her master of art's degree from Pennsylvania State University in the area of Media Studies, and her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center's Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

Dr. Labat’s training includes a postdoctoral fellowship in Pediatric Psychology, which propelled her into the position as Lead Psychologist and Psychological Services Manager at Children's Medical Center Dallas' (CMCD) Inpatient Psychiatric Unit and its Center for Pediatric Eating Disorders. While in this leadership role, she liaised with numerous hospital departments including neurology, gastroenterology, oncology, consult liaison and more. She also served on the leadership team attaining the first nationally-recognized Certification for Pediatric Eating Disorders by Joint Commission.

Dr. Labat transitioned her expertise from the hospital setting to the community setting and opened a private practice in Dallas concentrated on providing therapies, both individual and group, with adolescents and adults focusing on eating disorder treatment (anorexia, bulimia, and binge-eating), depression, anxiety, couple’s therapy and relationship repair. She also obtained specific training in Perinatal Mental Health from Postpartum Support International to support women and/or couples experiencing infertility, pregnancy loss, and/or perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.

As a Louisiana- and Texas-licensed clinical psychologist, she currently maintains an active private practice in New Orleans, Louisiana, where she works with clients across Louisiana and Texas in person and virtually through tele-mental health therapies.

Her areas of specialty include supporting adolescents and adults with everyday life stressors; women’s emotional health across the lifespan including reproductive health and pregnancy loss; and supporting the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities therapeutically. Lastly, Dr. Labat conducts psychological and psychoeducational assessment for the determination of learning differences, attention-related difficulties, and to clarify diagnoses.

Dr. Labat is also a sought-after speaker in the areas of Anti-racism initiatives, Mindfulness in BIPOC Communities, coping with racial trauma and living a healthy lifestyle. She also serves as a national consultant and content developer for a digital weight-loss program serving over 50,000 individuals across the United States.
