Desiree is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a diverse clinical history, working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. She believes that therapy must be a safe space where clients can come as they are and not feel judged. Desiree walks the path with clients to an authentic and fulfilled life. She is passionate about helping clients work through identity issues, unresolved trauma, anxiety, depression, negative self-talk, life transitions, self-esteem issues, and whatever struggles they face. Desiree believes that our unique strengths are valuable resources in the journey toward recovery.

Desiree earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Social Work from Arizona State University. She has provided counseling and guidance to at-risk adolescents and their families, children exhibiting signs of distress through behavioral concerns, geriatric hospice patients, nephrology patients, and women who have experienced domestic violence. Her holistic, trauma-focused, person-centered, and dynamic approach to counseling enables her the freedom to work with a wide range of clients. She also believes that it is important to consider the whole person through examining the mind-body connection in the healing process. Her preferred interventions include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Therapy.
