Because ice cream is a temporary fix :)

Hey ya’ll, my name is Deanna and I’m a NYC-based therapist (I’m a New Yorker but I can say “ya’ll” because I lived in the south on and off for almost 8 years!).

From personal experience, I know firsthand how dope therapy can be when you have a dope therapist – AND when you’re truly committed to the process. I also know how frustrating and overwhelming it can be to find a “good fit.”

Finding a therapist that is a “good fit” ultimately boils down to personality match. It’s important that you get a great vibe otherwise you’ll be wasting your time (and money!).  A personality match (which doesn’t necessarily mean same personalities, but a match that is supportive aka “gets you”) helps to build rapport, which breeds a supportive and transformative relationship.

I’m interested in learning from and working with all individuals! I don’t discriminate LOL. But because of my dynamic background, I tend to enjoy working with millennial women of color, individuals who are racially ambiguous, Latinx, Veterans, and significant others of professional athletes. 

I currently work with clients on a wide-range of issues. Identity and relationships is where we often start as that’s where we tend to find the most discord. However, we’ll work on whatever is most prominent for you and treatment is 100% tailored to your personality, needs, and goals.

If you’re willing to give therapy a try and committed to growth, I’d love to see if I’d be a a dope therapist for you!

(I’m currently accepting new clients and my availability is Thursday early afternoons-evening, and all-day Fridays. While I’m only available for in-person therapy during those days/hours, I’m available Monday-Saturday for phone consultations and online coaching.) 

I look forward to hearing from you!
