Drakirah Deichert

You are so much more than the boxes society has tried to fit you in. You deserve to be seen and heard without judgement. Making the choice to begin your healing journey is not an easy one, and I want you to know that you can do this, and you will do this. I want to provide you with a safe, sex positive, and racial trauma informed space to walk alongside you on this journey, where you will feel accepted, validated, and seen.

My work is centered around the power of community, self-love, and justice. I am passionate about working with adolescents and young adults who self-locate within the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities. I also enjoy working with families and have an understanding of the difficulties of navigating systems and barriers that blended and multiracial families experience. I have experience working in a variety of settings and situations which include in-home, crisis, family, individual therapy, race-based stress, trauma, anxiety, and depression.

I am looking forward to hearing your story and providing an authentic and loving space for you to begin healing. I received my Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University and am under supervision while working towards independent licensure.
