"There are many ways of getting strong, sometimes talking is the best way.”

― Andre Agassi

“Mental health isn’t just an athlete thing. What you do for a living doesn’t have to define who you are. This is an everyone thing. No matter what our circumstances, we’re all carrying around things that hurt — and they can hurt us if we keep them buried inside.” – Kevin Love

What comes to mind when you think about “therapy”? For some, the idea of working with a therapist is daunting, maybe even a little scary. Some may ask themselves, “Does going to therapy mean I’m failing in life? Does it mean I’m not capable of standing on my own two feet? Does it mean there’s something wrong with me?” The answer to all of these questions is a resounding “No!”


People come to therapy for a variety of reasons. You may be experiencing challenges in daily living, difficulty in navigating life transitions like divorce, end of a relationship, death of a loved one, family changes or job loss. You may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, or have a deep desire to live a more joyous, meaningful life.

Therapy is about removing obstacles and developing the capacity for self acceptance, self expression and a sense of empowerment.


We view therapy as a partnership between the client and therapist. We provide an attentive, nurturing environment where you can discuss and explore issues without judgement. Where your negative thought patterns will be challenged, where you can learn and practice new skills. You will provide your best efforts and openness. We will work to help you resolve the inner conflicts that are preventing you from living a fulfilling life. 

 

Together, we will form a partnership for your best life.  


Desyree Dixon, LCSW-C

Bolton Therapy & Wellness

I specialize in the treatment of relationship issues whether that relationship is with yourself or with others.  The issues can manifest as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief or loss.  Since opening my practice, I have empowered hundreds of individuals and couples  to overcome personal obstacles necessary to improve themselves as a well as their relationships.  By tailoring the diagnostic plan to fit each clients' need and their goals, I have equipped them with the skills and tools necessary to achieve their best life.  


I utilize various scientifically proven therapeutic models including CBT, Gottman Couples Relationship Therapy, DBT, Psychodynamic, ACT and Solutions Focused Therapy. 


I received my undergraduate degree from Georgetown University and my graduate degree from University of Maryland.  I received my training as a certified family trauma specialist from the John's Hopkins University School of Medicine affiliate Kennedy Krieger Institute.    I am a regular contributor as a psychological consultant to our local tv stations, TV One and WEAA radio where I discuss issues about trauma, relationships, self esteem depression and anxiety.  



What Our Clients Are Saying

I cannot recommend this practice enough. Desyree helped me grow personally, emotionally, and professionally without my realizing it. The practice is always warm and welcoming, and regardless of the content of our sessions, I always feel better after seeing her.
