Desiree Peoples, LCSW

Hi I am Desiree Peoples!

Hello! My name is Desiree Peoples and I am an LCSW. Is your relationship on the verge of ending?  Do you struggle with forgiveness and communication with your partner? I specialize in couples counseling with a focus on premarital and marital counseling. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work for the University of Texas at Arlington and a Master’s degree in Social work from Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio.

What is My approach to therapy?

There is no single treatment approach that works for every individual which is why I utilize solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral health therapy, and emotionally focused therapy techniques.

Acceptance & Commitment (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) encourages people to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting or feeling guilty for them.

Cognitive Behavioral

Help understand negative thoughts and behavior patterns with our unique therapy approach.

Solution Focused Brief

Take the time to analyze problems, pathology and past life events in order to find solutions for the present.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During sessions, I strive to provide a safe and neutral environment that will allow both parties to be heard. Marriage is more than the change of your living situation and last name, for you are two separate individuals who are coming together.

During pre-martial counseling, the goal is to identify areas that may cause conflict in your union, such as; beliefs, communication, and many other differences. Counseling is a tool to help address differences and provide a foundation for the years to come.

Who I Specialize In Serving?

Adults, LGBT+, Seniors, Couples.
