About Me, Dee

Denisha, also known as Dee, is a licensed professional counselor from the south side of Chicago, Illinois. One of her core beliefs is understanding the most authentic version of one's self is an ongoing process and requires a conscious effort. She is eager about helping others work toward their own inner healing, destressing, and finding balance.


Denisha earned her B.A. in Psychology from Illinois State University, with a minor in Children’s Studies. She later received her M.A. in Counseling Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, where she gained vital experience working with children and youth in Chicago Public Schools. She is a certified parenting coach and enjoys helping families redefine family dynamics. Her vigorous field experiences facilitated her specialties, which include post-traumatic stress induced by racism, anxiety, depression, and grief. 


In addition to her work with youth and families, she also devoted years working with individuals experiencing homelessness and chronic mental illnesses in Chicago's West Garfield Park neighborhood. 

When she’s not working with others, she’s busy enjoying the best moments of life, which include napping, traveling, eating good food, listening to music, reading a good book, binge watching TV, and being a top tier auntie.
