Professional statement

My name is Deon L Sanders and I am a Licensed Psychotherapist residing in the state of Georgia. I am also the Ower/CEO of Seek Wise Counsel and The Sanders Center for Recovery & Mental Wellness. I and my staff, (Both Black Males and Black Females) specialize in African American psychology, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) Psychodynamic Therapy, Existential, DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), Schema Therapy, Gestalt, Trauma Focused CBT and IFS. My specific training and education in African American Psychology has provided me knowledge, research, and a deeper subconscious understanding of how the residual effects of slavery, and religious trauma hinders African American families, relationship building, thoughts and feelings to help communities and people of color heal.

In my 14+ years as a Therapist I have seen well over thousands of individuals and couples who find themselves “stuck” in love, stuck in life and stuck in pain. I have gathered the skills, experience and clinical expertise in the following areas: Relationship/Marriage Problems, ADHD, Childhood Trauma, PTSD, Depression, Human Sexuality, Anxiety, Self Love, Self Care, Self Acceptance and Identity issues with internal thoughts such as (Who am I, Is it okay to be who I am, am I worthy..)

Sometimes we deal with people pleasing, lack of self love and trust, avoiding conflict at all costs, we have difficulty controlling our emotions, thoughts and feelings.

Sometimes we struggle with communicating and have inner thoughts of self doubt, self lack and lack of motivation….

Sometimes the things we experience in our childhood such as physical, emotional, mental and sexual abuse, creates core beliefs that keep us stuck in our adult hood.

We have difficulty connecting to others, trouble communicating in heathy ways and trouble with intimacy, trouble at work, trouble with school or trouble showing up in our close relationships.


Message to clients

The reality is lot of people including me, have been hurt by people who should have loved them (parents, friends, family, caregivers, institutions) As a result we have developed Toxic ways of connecting, parenting, loving each other, loving self and building relationships.

The pain from this toxicity can paralyze our peace and hinder our happiness. Generational Traumas, unhealthy attachment styles, unprocessed grief, loss, pain from broken relationships can all cause dysfunctionality, sadness, and feelings of despair.

There is a proverb that says the more we run from pain the more it hurts and hinder us, the more we face it, the less we feel it.

I know things maybe heavy right now so whatever you are facing let us help. We have both Male and Female Therapist available to help.
