I am Diera Parham-Carruthers, a licensed professional counselor. I am committed to working with clients within a range of mental health disciplines, which includes but not limited to crisis and trauma. As a clinician, I have a straightforward and to-the-point approach to therapy. I encompass evidence-based techniques in my sessions and utilize an integrative therapeutic approach when working with clients. I believe a client has to want to openly participate in therapy in order for it to be effective therapeutic relationship to address the client's needs.
