   Hi I am Desiree Peoples, LCSW


I specialize in couples counseling with a focus on pre-marital and marital counseling.

My expertise extends to individual, couples, and group counseling for adults, addressing a wide range of issues including pre-marital, marital, divorce, and mental health challenges. 


 With a deep passion for counseling, I firmly believe in the power of cognitive and behavioral modifications to help individuals change undesired habits and behaviors. I take great joy in assisting others and witnessing the progress my clients make through our therapeutic work together. I look forward to fostering a meaningful therapeutic relationship with you.
