Meet The Therapist ~

Hello There! I'm Doreatha, 

I am excited that you are here!  

Let's get to the real deal! 

I want you to know that I am not just a Therapist. I am a real person having had to endure many of the things that you are dealing with right now.

I’ve made moves in a lot of different areas, but these things do not describe the impact I hope to have on your life.

Like many, having faced adversities as early as I can remember, growing up a military kid we moved so many times. Facing challenge after challenge, changing schools, changing grade levels, the frequency of being the new kid and having to make new friends. I had no sense of stability until I got closer to high school. As I became older meant facing new challenges that I like many was not prepared. As an adult it took a lot of trial and error to become what I called rooted in my life. Today, I'm not only rooted in life.  

I'm Rooted In Hope.

I’m here to tell you, my story and my journey, was a long and hard one but I’ve come out on the other side and I want to pass on the things that helped me to transform my life. I want you to know that you have support with me, that I will be in your corner just as I have been in the corner of many in some of their darkest moments.

  • Helping you to discover how to empower yourself to overcome obstacles.
  • To improve the way that you see yourself again, gaining insight into who you are as a person.
  • Helping you grow past those walls that you have built to protect yourself
  • Encouraging you to believe in yourself again.

Working with me, you will always lead the way, with my support.
