About Me

My name is Deitra and I am a dual licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, in the states of Texas (Lic. #203614) and California (Lic. #104009). In my practice, I focus on personal, relational, familial, professional growth, mental health and wellness. My greatest passion and goal is to empower my clients to operate in the fullness of love, as they seek to live a life of happiness, fulfillment and mental health and wellness.

I believe that you, as the client, are the driving force behind your therapeutic process. As I tell, show, and involve you in the process of growth and change, you will become more confident in your ability to thrive. Because I strongly believe in the importance of family synergy, I assist individuals and families in exploring cultural, contextual, and systemic factors that may be restrictive and limiting, and therefore impact their overall psychological health and well-being.

I specialize in providing culturally sensitive clinical and non-clinical services to assist each member of the family. I provide support with: trauma, separation, relational difficulties, low self-esteem, parent-child conflict, home or work problems. I am solution-focused, offering concrete do-able strategies for problem resolution. I create a therapeutic space that is warm and inviting in order to facilitate healthy dialogue. As a consumer, my hope is that you feel like you are getting a sneak peek into how I truly practice what I preach, coming across as very authentic, genuine and someone you can trust with your challenges.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Deitra Baker. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written by W.H. on Jul 19, 2022 after therapy with Deitra for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Mrs. Baker is a great therapist! She responds to all messages and journal entries in a timely manner. She is on time for all of our sessions. She is very attentive and knowledgeable. I believe she truly cares about me and my journey. She encourages and challenges me to grow and do the hard things! I would recommend her to others!

Work with me!
