About Me

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.

Written by J.E. on Jun 23, 2021 after counseling with Delishia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Delishia is great! She has taught me so much about myself and different techniques to handle certain situations. I have been with her a short time now but can honestly say I already see a change in how I handle and think about things.

Written by C.H. on Jun 10, 2021 after counseling with Delishia for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coaching

She’s wonderful. I’ve gone through many therapists who I felt were only parroting me instead of actually listening. She makes me feel heard & shows me that I matter. When I’m not in the space to talk she sends me inspirational thoughts or supportive messages even when I can’t bring myself to respond. I’m so grateful for her.

Written by B.A. on May 21, 2021 after counseling with Delishia for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Written by A.S. on May 20, 2021 after counseling with Delishia for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and coping with life changes

I had a short time with Delishia, but during my time she did a great job of making me feel welcome and safe to share in our space. It's a strength and a skill to be able to provide the feeling of non-judgement and safety while over the internet/phone.

Written by R.E. on May 12, 2021 after counseling with Delishia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Delishia has been an invaluable asset in my life. She is incredibly empathetic, gentle and kind. She always listens carefully to everything I'm saying (and not saying) and has helped me realize so many different patterns about myself. She stays focused on my overall goals and always encourages me to try a number of different methods to help manage my biggest stressors. She's helped me to replace the anxiety I’ve been feeling with excitement and optimism. I am very privileged to have her on my team and couldn't recommend her enough!

Written by S.A. on May 06, 2021 after counseling with Delishia for 2 years and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Delishia is amazing! I have worked with her weekly for 2 1/2 years and can’t imagine working with anyone else! She is kind and takes time to find resources specific to my journey with PTSD and grief, along with incorporating mindfulness practices to help with my daily wellbeing.
She is approachable and realistic. Her professionalism is top notch and she truly does put her clients first! I’m so thankful that BetterHelp set me up with her!

Delishia has been such a great outlet, support system, and advisor to me. Having the opportunity to use the message feature throughout the week in between video chats is a game changer. Delishia always leaves me with helpful resources and encouraging words.

Delishia WIlliams is an incredible therapist and I recommend her 100%. She offers multiple ways of communication for therapy, she always responds in a very timely manner and she is excellent at tailoring our sessions/conversations to me and my needs. I have made tremendous growth since starting therapy with Delishia and I would recommend her to anyone.

Written by J.U. on Jul 30, 2020 after counseling with Delishia for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, and self esteem

She is an amazing counselor that really takes the time to make sure she understands your goals and ensures she understands how you are feeling about different situations before moving foreword. Even though there are times that I am unable to talk about anything for various reasons, she always checks in so I know she is still there ready to listen, she does not push me to do things I’m uncomfortable with, she just lets me know she is there to listen when I am ready to talk.

Written by M.. on May 25, 2020 after counseling with Delishia for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Delishia has been that coach in my corner who helps me find the inner strength to stay in the ring.

Written by T.O. on Mar 29, 2020 after counseling with Delishia for 6 months on issues concerning coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Delishia continues to be an invaluable resource for me. When I started with her I was feeling tired and drained all the time. Once we worked through those issues we have been able to move onto strategies that help me work through some of the more subtle and pervasive challenges both at home and at work. She regularly sends me articles that help reframe whatever we have been working on in a new light. Now that the world is dealing with the covid 19 pandemic, she has been a great resource in providing guidance and suggestions in a constantly and rapidly changing world. Thank you for all you do.

Written by D.A. on Feb 13, 2020 after counseling with Delishia for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

Delishia is wonderful! I had the pleasure to work with her these last few months. It was my first time doing therapy and I had some doubts (to be honest) and I was also a bit terrified. But Delishia created such a safe space for me to open up and show myself. She is very good at listening and understanding. Her insights are very wise and always made me question my thinking pattern and made me see opportunities for improvement, I discovered a lot about myself that way, many things that otherwise I would not have noticed. Even though English is not my first language, Delishia was very patient with me while I explained my situation. She responded quickly to my messages and she sent me lots of practical and engaging articles as well as worksheets. Now, in the end, I can see the positive results emerging out from our sessions and it is hard to describe how thrilled I am.

Delishia has a wonderfully kind way of giving you the space to heal at your own pace. She creates a beautiful connection quickly, and opens the floor for you to be honest with yourself.

I’ve taken several breaks as my life circumstances improve and no longer require counseling. It is such a comfort to know Delishia is ready to be there when I need her again, and I’m tearful when we say our temporary ‘goodbyes’. I cannot recommend Delishia highly enough.
