Today's world is full of complications and barriers to finding ease in being our authentic selves. The beautiful inner spirit that makes us who we are as individuals is often masked with grief from heavy losses in life, finding too much on our plates each day, and bumping into the strain that others around us are also carrying. I believe in the strengths that reside within us all, as humans. I love being a therapist because this role allows me to work with individuals from all different backgrounds in a supportive way as these individuals look to reignite who they really are on the inside. This world often gives us more than we need to get off track. I believe every person can benefit from therapy at any point in their lifespan that they choose to reach out. Human connection and understanding is key to our wellness. I am here to provide a non-judgemental, supportive hand to your journey.
I graduated from Howard University, Washington, D.C. with a Master's degree in Social Work. I focused my studies on gerontology and the transitions we face in life as we age. I worked for a Hospice provider for nearly 7 years supporting individuals, families, and human service/medical employees as they engaged with the most intense life transitions. This clinical background aided me in rooting my personal therapeutic practice around existentialism (a fancy word for finding meaning in life), inner human strengths, and mindfulness (being present in this moment).
I look forward to working with individuals who are wanting to feel better in these times. I believe there are many things we can do together to improve our outlook on this world and what it has to offer us. No matter how small or how big you feel your issue is, I am here to listen and support you in this journey.

Delishia is an amazing counselor. She carefully listens to my thoughts and troubles that I share with her, and I immediately feel at ease. She is someone that I feel I can talk to and I have had an amazing experience! I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends or family who are facing some difficult times in their life.
I am very pleased with the care that I have received.
Delishia is the most supportive and understanding counselor I have had, ever. She is great at helping me understand my situation and offering techniques to overcome obstacles, and if one doesn't work, she guides me through other options. She has guided me through paths of anxiety and depression to a life of more confidence and mindfulness. She is THE best.
What I like about Delishia is that she emphasizes that she's also just a normal human being, with the willingness to help others. She doesn't make it look like she has all the answers, but offers an open ear and a lot of understanding, which I think was what I needed.
Well, Delishia is really good! Offers a bunch of ways to communicate, and does what you think is best!
Delishia is a very kind and considerate person. I could not have asked for a better counselor. I am beyond happy to have her on this journey. She provides tools and explains them. She provides words of encouragement. She makes sure she understands things, and asks questions. She goes above and beyond, and clarifies any questions I may have. She is always quick to respond. She shares her vast knowledge in a way that is fun, to the point and thought provoking.
I really feel like she understands me and gives me a variety of resources to try and help me work through some of the things I am feeling.
Delishia has been amazing at helping me for the last few months. She doesn’t push me to do things I’m not ready to and respects my boundaries. She offers actual advice and support instead of just acting like this is just her job. She typically answers back within the day (except for weekends.) 10/10 would recommend her.
I really enjoy this website and my counselor. I feel like it is a safe space.
Delishia is an amazing and selfless therapist who has provided me with so much support and hope through my anxieties and depression. When I talk with her I really feel I am being listened to and understood without judgment and provided with suggestions and activities that are helping me to actively work on the heart of my issues. The way she brings compassion and a sense of safety in her sessions has really been a gift to me during these difficult times. I would recommend her to anyone, as she is knowledgeable, compassionate and is genuinely invested in your growth and progress through the therapy sessions.
I was cautious of online counseling at first, but Delishia is great! It's nice to be able to talk to someone about my problems without the emotionally attachment involved. She's very good at her job!
Delishia is brilliant! She really makes every effort to help and understand. She gives great advice along with plenty of reading and other exercises to help you along the way. Very thoughtful and caring. I'd highly recommend Delishia to help anyone through a tough time.
Very knowledgeable. She responds in a timely manner, with plenty of materials to back her up and challenge my thought processes.
Delishia is wonderful! She is so supportive and strives to understand what I’m trying to say. She keeps things interesting and asks questions to help me make progress. She is a lifesaver and I would recommend her to anyone needing help!
Delishia is warm, compassionate, and sincere. She expresses genuine concern, sympathy, praise... Her questions and feedback are always pertinent, and she provides relevant videos, articles, worksheets, and artwork. Delishia’s approach is very motivational—I eagerly anticipate her messages—they elicit courage and bring me peace.
Delishia is a great person. She is always there for me and gets to the heart of the issue(s). I recommend her professional expertise.
