Hi, I'm Dezireh!
I'm glad you're here and I would love to work with you towards positive changes you're hoping to see in your everyday activities. I believe that working as a therapist means providing a safe and nurturing place to take those first steps to seek support. I believe that when a positive and safe environment are created, great work can be done between a client and therapist. Together we will work to create a plan that matches your needs and as you grow, the plan will as well. I believe that growth comes when we do hard things, and I am prepared to sit with clients as they meet their goals.
I work with teens, adults, and families in overcoming challenging relationships including home, work, and in the community by providing coping skills and tools. Therapy can range from doing intervention work such as CBT or DBT, goal setting, increasing resilience and enhancing personal growth. My goal for working with clients is to provide an empathetic, open-minded, and authentic approach with any intervention we choose to work in.
I have worked in mental health and substance abuse and in various settings including day treatment, co-occurring residential treatment, substance use residential treatment, and mental health outpatient settings. I am currently offering both online and telehealth options.
