Deloris Ahlin

(MS, LICSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with 30 years of experience in the clinic setting as well as private practice. My Master in Science (MS) is from Columbia University, and I am trained in a number of psychotherapy modalities such as Transactional Analysis (TA), Gestalt Therapy, and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I work primarily with adults and couples, with significant experience in relationship issues, career, self-esteem, trauma and abuse, grief, stress, anxiety and depression.

I believe the practice of therapy should be one of caring partnership between therapist and client working towards a concrete, stated goal. So many decisions made while growing up continue to influence our behavior as adults; because they are out of our awareness, they block us from being our best selves. Through focused listening, non-judgmental encouragement, and safe exploration that is tailored to your exact needs and desires, I can help you succeed in overcoming the obstacles that hold you back from being everything you deserve to be.

Everyone can benefit from therapy, but it takes courage to take the first step. I applaud your decision to embark on this exciting new chapter in your life, and I would very much enjoy working with you to achieve your full potential!

Ms. Deloris is understanding and very knowledgeable. She is an amazing cheerleader and inspires you to believe in you. She makes you work and discover yourself so that you can learn and grow. She is non judgmental and fills you with good thoughts to keep moving forward. She came in my life on a dark and cloudy day. I now see the light at the end of my tunnel, and it is not a train. It is me healing and growing and glowing. This has been a fruitful journey. Thank you Ms. Deloris!

Deloris is an incredible person. She's experienced. Every time I talk to her, I feel relieved. She's reliable. My session's been going very well! She has helped me to clarify my goals, problems, and feelings. She lifts me up with hopes and dreams. Highly recommended. 👍

Deloris has been such a huge help to me. She's very clear and open in her responses, I've never felt confused about what she's trying to communicate. Her recommendations have helped me immensely in a short space of time. Best of all I haven't felt any judgment, only support.

Deloris has proven to be an amazing counselor and mentor. Instead of trying to label me, she has this ability to get me to draw answers to my problems for myself, which ultimately proves to me that I am capable of figuring out solutions on my own, even after our sessions come to an end.

Deloris is the first therapist I've had that I feel genuinely understands me and is accepting enough for me to open up to completely. She is non-judgmental and caring. I have never lasted long with therapists, but with Deloris, I feel I finally have someone who can help me start to heal.

Deloris has been absolutely wonderful. She is very good at what she does. She is very easy to talk to about anything and she is very thoughtful and very thorough in responding with trying to help you get past obstacles or work through issues. We are still currently working on some of my concerns but I am wanting to continue the journey even if they seem like baby steps with her because I feel like she can help me.

I have really appreciated the help I have received from Deloris. Even though it's all online, I do feel like I have a good connection with her, and I feel like she understands the issues I'm dealing with and is able to give me some advice on how to approach things.

I was so scared to get started, but Deloris has been kind, supportive, non-judgmental, and understanding. I'm still new to this, but it is already benefiting me on many levels.
