Desiree is very professional and insightful. She has helped me by listening and truly trying to understand my problems before offering well thought-out advice. She's very kind, understanding, and professional. I enjoy working with her.

Desirae has met me right where I am at! I feel heard, seen and validated by Desirae. She's easy to connect with and she's fun and funny too. She has a good balance of being kind and direct which is exactly what I need.

Desirae is an amazing counselor. I’ve been in and out of therapy for most of my life as a teenager and an adult. She has been one of the most helpful and life changing ones in just the short 4 weeks I’ve been working with her. I feel like there is actually light at the end of the tunnel. She is great at listening and presenting different ways of looking at something differently without making you feel wrong. I would HIGHLY recommend her.
