My name is Deitra and I have been working with children, teens, and families for over 10 years. I am a dual licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, in the states of Texas (Lic. #203614) and California (Lic. #104009). I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Spelman College, and a Masters degree in Community Counseling with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University, Atlanta.
As a Parenting Strategist and Human Behavior Expert, I am able to provide real solutions and practical tips for real life challenges. In my practice, I focus on all topics related to relationships (family relationship dynamic issues, parent-child relationship issues,.. ), overall personal, relational, familial, professional growth, mental health and wellness. My greatest passion and goal is to empower families to operate in the fullness of love, as they seek to live a life of happiness, fulfillment and mental health and wellness.
My areas of expertise include child and adolescent behavioral health, parenting, and family of origin dynamics. I enjoy working with children and teenagers who need support with: trauma, separation, relational difficulties, low self-esteem, parent-child conflict, home or school problems. I offer screen-free coaching to support families with your decision to prioritize more engagement and less electronics.
I am solution-focused, offering concrete do-able strategies for problem resolution. I create a therapeutic space that is warm and inviting in order to facilitate healthy dialogue.
