About Me

Welcome. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with Advanced Certification in Family Counseling and founder of Steps To Clarity PLLC in the state of New York. I am a diligent, motivated, and ambitious individual with a lot of charisma. Additionally, I yearn to continuously advance and gain knowledge in my craft. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems and career challenges.

There are many factors in life that aid into one's mental health. These factors may be emotional, physical and/or environmental amongst a possible myriad of others. Many issues can contribute to challenges in one having a more productive and fulfilling life. In addition to these stressors, some people struggle with issues from childhood or unhealthy patterns that sabotage their relationships or current life events. I find that my experience working with diverse populations opened up many avenues in contributing in touching the lives of so many in various ways.

It takes courage and at times may elicit anxiety journeying towards a more fulfilling life. In the end, it will be rewarding if you commit to the process. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Deja is truly a wonderful person and she makes me feel safe and comfortable enough to open up about my feelings. She is very motivating and understanding which is what I needed during troubling times in my life. She helped me find a path towards healing, forgiveness, and self love. She is unlike any other counselor I've had in the past and I love her for that. Thank you Deja for everything!

I have been working with Deja for a few months now, within this time she has assisted in guiding me to the tools I’ve already had within me. Deja is highly attentive and is able to hone into the underlying issues you may be skirting around. I have seen a drastic shift, not only within my life - but within myself. She is the best counselor I have ever worked with and has set the bar at an irrefutable level.

DEJA IS SO DOPE. I've never had a therapist before but somehow she's perfect and everything that I need and more. I wish I can bring her in my pocket everywhere I go for consulting. Deja has a style of being straightforward that I really appreciate and extremely comforting.
