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 continues to go above and beyond in all aspects of her role. She is wonderful in encouraging mindfulness and making sure I know how important it is to honor myself and my efforts while working through my PTSD etc. She is always approachable and quick to respond. She truly molds her style of practice to what works best for me & I am thankful for her!
Delishia has been that coach in my corner who helps me find the inner strength to stay in the ring.
She is great at listening to me and understanding me and always clarifies that she understands correctly, I have had great improvements since I started working with her and her approaches are very beneficial for me.
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.
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. Having Delishia as a support has helped me to begin my journey to find more love and kindness in myself. Thank you Delishia, I really appreciate your dedication and patience!
Delishia has all the qualities of a good listener. She recognizes your words and emotions, processes them, then sends back her thoughtful words. Her passion for her work shows and in turn gets me excited about making a change for the better. She has shared lots of fantastic research articles with me as well:) great fit for me.
Delishia is a terrific counselor!!! She is so understanding and kind. I was hesitant to use online counseling, but now I actually like it better than in-person counseling!!! Delishia is quick to respond and also provides me with many different tools for personal growth!
I'm getting the best results I've ever had in my life. Scheduling is a breeze, Delishia listens to everything I say without judgment or bias. Her professionalism is outstanding!
This is my first experience with counseling, and Delishia is a fantastic fit for me. She is super attentive and caring, and it's no problem for me to open up to her. She has really started me on a path to getting to the bottom of my issues and making a daily practice of mindfulness and self compassion to help overcome my anxiety and issues with anger.
I think Delishia is an excellent counselor and she understood what problems I had. And she took the right measurements to make sure that I could recover in a pretty exceptional time.
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 recommend BetterHelp to my friends all the time. Delishia has been a great help to me
I've had great interactions with Delishia thus far. I feel that our communication will continue to help my growth and overall well-being.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
I am so grateful to be working with Delishia. She has a lot of insight and compassion. She has a way of guiding you to reflect and look at things a different way that you hadn't thought of before. I definitely feel like I have grown and become more aware since working with her.
Delishia is super compassionate and supportive. She is very involved with her. She sends articles, videos, and other helpful resources to assist in the process. She really cares about helping me move toward my goals and continuing my growth! 10 out of 10!
Delishia has already helped so much. It's comforting to know I have her there. When I feel like my thoughts and feelings aren't valid she has a great way of making me think otherwise and giving me additional resources to better myself.
Delishia stikes a good balance between listening and talking. I felt very comfortable with her from the start.
Delishia is very supportive and understands my issues.
Delishia’s great . She cares for her patients and she’s helped me get through tough times. I’m thankful I sought out help from people who can help me better understand myself. It’s been a 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.
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!
