Professional statement

De'Andrea Dillard is a licensed clinical social worker in Connecticut. She specializes in helping those trying to cope with traumatic events and the challenges associated with issues such as domestic violence, sexual assault, or community violence. She also helps those recovering from homelessness, substance use, and illnesses, as well as veterans readjusting to civilian life, and active duty military personnel returning home from deployments. 

Her background includes intimate partner violence, trauma, and a specialization in Alcohol and Substance Use Counseling. As the child of a soldier, she has spent many years traveling and immersed in diverse cultures and situations. De'Andrea understands you are looking for someone who will understand your needs.

She advocates for her clients and their needs. De'Andrea meets clients where they are to assist with goal planning and overcoming barriers. She integrates her enthusiasm, dedication, and passion for people into her practice.  

Asking for help is hard, but you have already taken the first step. Work together with De'Andrea to establish goals that will help you restore your life to a higher level of functioning.

During the first session, you will establish your needs and what you would like to achieve during therapy. Her goal is for you to walk away from each session feeling empowered, supported, and closer to the version of yourself you want to become.

De'Andrea uses a multitude of methods to meet the needs of her clients. These include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, supportive counseling, motivational interviewing, family systems therapy, and strength-based therapy.

De'Andrea's greatest strength is listening to her clients. This lets her hear your authentic voice and what you want to accomplish. She specializes in many areas and has a wide range of experience, but the most critical part of therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. She has a good track record of making sure her clients feel both comfortable and safe as they begin the work towards reaching their therapeutic goals.
