Hello, I'm Deandre Dyer, LMSW.  Life is filled with things to worry about. Sometimes those worries come from within yourself. For adults this could be irritability, anger, or fear. For children & teens these worries could even present as behavioral issues or in-school disturbances. Developing confidence, self-esteem, and positive thinking habits can be the key to unlocking a better reality. I want to help you build this confidence & self-esteem; I want to equip you with the tools to create positive thinking habits, and inevitably help you to use all of these skills to overcome your worries.  My experience allows me to work comfortably with children, teens, and adults. My approach will center around your individual needs & goals. I utilize techniques found in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Child Centered Play Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. We will work together to decrease negative thoughts, and reduce self-defeating behaviors. At each step of the way, I will be there guiding you, your child, or your teen along the journey to self discovery.
