"Many Titles But Only One Mission,
Healing My People With Love"
My name is Deon L Sanders and I am from a small town in Mississippi. I grew up on a farm and enjoyed every minute of it. I have a masters degree in counseling. I completed my clinical internship at the local Private/Public Psychiatric Hospitals and facilities. I passed the Nationally Certified Counselor’s Exam allowing me to be certified as a National Counselor able to practice psychotherapy. I have 10 years of experience in psychiatric hospitals and facilities working directly with youth, adolescents and adults, couples and families.
I specialize in African American psychology, Skills , CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) Psychodynamic, Existential , Gestalt and Trauma Informed Care Treatment Modalities
I also am knowledgeable of how the residual effects of slavery, and religious trauma hinders African American families, and relationship building, and I utilize this to help communities and people of color heal.
When helping my people I utilize a culturally inclusive technique called Black Therapy where I utilize theory based practices combined with cultural beliefs, practices and systems to identify, and assist clients with healing generational traumas and toxic thinking.
In addition I also have a strong background in addiction, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, anger management, sexuality acceptance, self acceptance, and spirituality. I also have experience with suicidal and homicidal ideations and attempts.
“I look forward to meeting you”
