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.

Delishia is amazing! Just through her messages I can feel how calm and willing to help she is. She goes with my pace, doesn't push me too hard, and is so knowledgable. I have enjoyed working with her! I feel like every message I receive from her is exactly what I needed to hear that day. I can't say enough good things.

I’ve made more progress with Delishia on long-standing issues in two months than I made in years of traditional therapy. She offers practical solutions to life’s challenges.

Written by S.A. on Jun 19, 2019 after counseling with Delishia for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, coaching, and adhd

I love working with Delishia because not only is she an ear to hear your pain, but she is very reflective after the session has ended in addressing the why behind what you speak about. This is incredibly helpful for those who want to grow and expand in their understanding of themselves. She is warm, compassionate and reliable

Written by S.A. on May 20, 2019 after counseling with Delishia for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Delishia consistently goes above and beyond, in terms of doing whatever she can to help. The first day I met Delishia, she took the initiative to find out what works best for my needs; after learning that I enjoy reading articles and case studies, she has made it a point to share as much research and information with me as she can. I have never had a counselor take the time after a session to find supporting articles to help me learn.

Her demeanor is very kind and non-judgmental. She truly cares about what you are going through and provides very tailored support for any situation. She is passionate about her job and it shows! I’m thankful to have been matched with her because she is by far, the best counselor I’ve ever worked with!

A great counselor who offers in depth help and really try's to put herself in that situation. She sends worksheets and articles that assist people with what exactly they may be feeling.

Delishia is such a great listener. She offers advice and options when my head isn’t in the right place. She is always positive and on my side. I couldn’t make it though some weeks without her guidance.

Written by S.Y. on Feb 27, 2019 after counseling with Delishia for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

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.

Written by D.E. on Jan 15, 2019 after counseling with Delishia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Delishia is seriously incredible. I was very skeptical about this entire service, and wasn't planning on staying passed the free trial. But her amazing rapport, understanding, explanations and help has given me great hope for the future.

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.

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 would recommend her to anyone, as she is knowledgeable, compassionate and is genuinely invested in your growth and progress through the therapy sessions.
