Demetrea is a Licensed Professional Counselor who sees clients via telehealth.

Hi, I’m Demetrea and I am a Clinical Therapist at Bricolage Wellness. Assisting you on your Journey to Mental Wellness through support, honesty, and encouragement is my main focus.

I am passionate about working with young adults and adults living with chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and transitions. I have professional experience working with women’s issues and specialize in supporting women of color through stresses unique to their lived experiences. Empowering women is my greatest joy!

I utilize a client-centered approach with a multicultural lens. By creating an open, nonjudgmental safe space, I hope you will facilitate your own growth on your own terms. In my counseling practice, I emphasize the fact that change will not happen until you accept who you are, right now, in this very moment. Through this experience, I hope we can work together to enhance your understanding of yourself.
