About Me

I am a professional counselor licensed in Wisconsin who has over ten years of experience working with individuals from a variety of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. I have experience working with survivors of sexual and physical trauma, persons of color, and members of the LGBTQ community. With regard to specific conditions I have helped clients with, I have helped clients address conflicts surrounding sexual identity, feelings of marginalization, social identity, anxiety, depression, and PTSD, I have also worked with clients dealing with parenting issues, career concerns, and grief and loss. I believe in a holistic approach to wellness and focus on treating the mind, body and spirit. My counseling style is integrative, utilizing aspects of person-centered therapy, CBT, trauma informed care, and stages of change.

As the parent of a child with special needs I believe that I have knowledge and insight that may be helpful to those dealing with similar parenting challenges. I serve on the board of a non profit organization that assists families of children with special needs, most of whom are socioeconomically disadvantaged and Latino. In my free time I enjoy binge watching Jeopardy!, playing with my cat, and hosting parties for my friends and family. Regardless of your desire to seek help, I treat all of my clients with compassion, empathy and respect. My goal is to help empower you to live the best life you can, and I am excited to partner with you on that journey!

I feel so lucky to have been matched with Deia. She is an incredible counselor, who is an amazing listener, but also provides relatable examples from her own life, which I found very helpful. It is clear that Deia is passionate about her job and is on a mission to get her clients the help that they need. I would highly recommend working with her.
