"Many Titles But Only One Mission, 
Healing My People With Love"


My name is Deon L Sanders and I am a Licensed Psychotherapist residing in the state of Georgia. I am also the Ower/CEO of Seek Wise Counsel and The Sanders Center for Recovery & Mental Wellness. I and my staff, specialize in African American psychology, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) Psychodynamic Therapy, Existential, DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), Schema Therapy, Gestalt, Trauma Focused CBT and IFS.  My specific training and education in African American Psychology has provided me knowledge, research, and a deeper subconscious understanding of how the residual effects of slavery, and religious trauma hinders African American families, relationship building, thoughts and feelings to help communities and people of color heal. 


When helping my people I utilize a culturally inclusive technique called Black Therapy.

Black Therapy is my clinically & culturally competent approach to Therapy.

With this approach, I utilize theory-based practices combined with cultural beliefs, practices and systems to identify, and assist clients with healing generational traumas, toxic thinking, toxic ways of building relationships with self and others. 

I also have a strong background in childhood trauma, addiction (substances, sex, porn, gambling) treatment as well with depression, ADHD, anxiety, schizophrenia, anger management, sexuality acceptance, self-acceptance, and spirituality. I also have experience with suicidal and homicidal ideations and attempts.

Transitions can be tough at any age. The uncertainty of change can feel overwhelming, but it doesn't have to feel hopeless. That's why I love working with women of all ages who are facing major, life-changing moments. Whether you're taking on a new school, starting your career, or making another big step in life causing stress and anxiety, I would be honored to walk alongside you.

My expertise comes from a combination of academic studies, life experience, and experience working with numerous individuals during their journeys. Together these have given me a well-rounded perspective that I use to guide clients to a place of growth and healing. My approach is cognitive-behavioral, as well as using solution-focused therapy.

No matter what your background is or current situation in life, I am here to help you navigate the tough times with clarity and direction. Being here exploring your options is a huge first step!

I believe in the transformative power of person-centered care and mental health recovery. I am passionate about collaborating with individuals and families to create meaningful and sustainable change. For me, person-centered care means approaching each person with empathy, respect, and a deep commitment to understanding their unique needs and goals. I strive to create a safe space where individuals can explore their experiences and work towards achieving their full potential.

I also strongly believe in the principles of mental health recovery, which emphasize the importance of hope, empowerment, and self-determination. I believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and healing, and I am dedicated to helping individuals tap into their own inner strengths and resources to create change.

Ultimately, my goal is to help individuals live meaningful and fulfilling lives, in accordance with their own values and aspirations. I am honored to have the opportunity to support you in your journey.

1) People seeking mental health counseling want a therapist who knows what they are going through and is skilled and experienced to help them cope with life challenges and overcome mental illnesses.  I am a cognitive behavioral therapist with many years of clinical experience in treating mental health patients.  I am fully capable of helping individuals develop coping mechanisms to manage their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

2)  My philosophy as a therapist is that everything begins inside the mind.  Having a healthy mind is the secret to overall health and well-being.  We do not always have power over our circumstances.  But, we have power over our minds.  My goal as a therapist is to help clients control their minds to improve their quality of life and relationships with others.

3)  I specialize in mood disorders and have seen positive results by incorporating the three types of cognitive behavioral therapy (cognitive therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and rational emotive therapy.
