About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a specialty in Health & Behavioral Health. I have over 5 years of experience working as a Clinician in the psychiatric hospital setting as well as school district. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, ADHD and more. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm, interactive and meeting the person where they are currently in life to help them transition into the life they always knew they could live. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I do not label people and will not allow you to label yourself based off your mental illness and/or current situation. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She is AMAZING. So far in 2 weeks I have learned new coping skills, how to try and stop my negative thoughts, helps with my relationship issues and told me to challenge my thoughts which helps tons. I can't wait to keep having sessions with her. I love the worksheets she sends me. I can write her anytime. Highly recommended!!!

Dezaree is a caring person and so easy to talk to. She was able to zoom in on my concerns, and to help me prioritize what actions I needed to take. I had a family reunion that was all important to me, and she even helped me to plan what to talk about with each one! I was so confident and had a wonderful time since I was had discussed it with her. I will have a better quality of life because of this counseling. Thank you.
