Dionne seeks to create a place for clients where they feel accepted and safe to explore their true selves.  She believes the healing relationship between counselor and client requires transparency and trust, and she works to offer support and be a “heart with ears” to each person.  As every individual is different, she tailors her approach to meet the unique needs of each client from a wholistic perspective – emotional, spiritual, and physical.

As a Clinical Mental Health Intern, Dionne works with adults, families, children, and teens to address depression, anxiety, grief and loss, stress and life transition, identity, self-esteem, and relationship conflict.  She seeks to assist clients to understand and express themselves more fully, gain insight, assess current behaviors, and make changes to themselves or their environment.

Dionne has been board-certified in Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing by the American Nurses Credentialing Center since 2014 and worked as a psychiatric nurse in U.S. Army medical facilities until 2018.  She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Hampton University in Virginia.  Dionne is currently in her final year of graduate school at North Carolina A & T University, pursing a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, with a certification in Rehabilitation Counseling and Addiction.
