About me

Welcome to my profile page! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of private practice experience. I graduated from Cal State East Bay with a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology. I chose Marriage and Family Therapy and Career and Adult Development as my specialty areas of emphasis. My under graduate degree is from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

My counseling philosophy is supportive, collaborative and proactive. In other words, we get things done! I believe in the science of Biopsychology so I always accept you for who you are and help you explore who you want to become. Every human is made from a sum of their DNA and their life experiences and sometimes things go haywire. The result is confusion brought on by anxiety, depression, or a number of maladaptive coping mechanisms that waylay us from achieving our full potential. Sifting through our confusion can seem impossible and this is where therapy can help. Discovering how to categorize a problem by naming it allows us to fix the problem. I use theoretical modalities derived from Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Solution Focus, and Family Systems Therapy. Working together I will listen, provide feedback, and partner with you to find peace by offering clarification, reframing, and goal setting.

When I chose to become a therapist, I didn’t just choose a career, I chose a lifestyle. I am committed to healthy choices, mentally and physically. I believe that every human being is unique and deserves to have a quality life and fulfilling interpersonal relationships. Exploring the many dimensions of who you are exchanges old thoughts and behavior for new ideas and outcomes. I look forward to guiding you in this journey of self-discovery and healing.

I have tried BetterHelp before and didn't feel my previous therapist was the right fit. I left and decided to come back... and I am so glad I did, because I got paired with Deloy! I am so thankful. She was warm and patient and welcoming from day one. I never felt judged once. She always listens and gives great tools with how to cope with certain situations.

I’ve been working with therapists for years (I love therapy as it changed my life) and I’ve never found one like Deloy until now. I am so grateful that she is in my life! The first session she cracked open my awareness (and I’m very self aware) to new realizations about my childhood and the ways I operate bc of it that just totally blew my mind... I could forgive and love my inner child more. She’s not there to support your “woe is me” crap and say “how does that make you feel” that people say therapists do…. She holds space for you and validates your feelings yes, while also empowering you to get the heck out of victim land, focus hard back on the goals you mentioned first session, and grow strong with your universe to get the results you want. She goes that extra mile—you can tell she loves what she does. I can see her gears turning to help me brainstorm and dissect my reality bc she truly cares, more than any therapist I’ve ever worked with. She is incredible, spiritual too, and I will follow her wherever she works!!! Thank you so much Deloy.

Started therapy to help with a stressful divorce. My sessions have reduced my stress, I’m sleeping better and I’m more confident dealing with dividing property. Most important, I have a better understanding of his behavior which was confusing. Wish I would have started therapy earlier. Highly recommend scheduling an session.

Amazing! She remembers every detail you tell her. She helps make you feel comfortable. Is always so uplifting and no matter how you feel about therapy she finds a way to make you feel proud of yourself for doing the little things. So sweet and accepting, makes you feel validated. Only had her for about two months and I already saw improvement before I had to quit therapy due to price reasons. Very safe space! Highly recommend.
