Deidra Sledge MSW, LCSW
It’s no secret that life delivers us both light and darkness. No matter which side you find yourself encountering, having a professional guide to aid you can be both comforting and affirming. In my practice, my goals are to 1) educate you on what you may be experiencing, 2) help you shift your mindset, 3) encourage you to practice new habits, and 4) assist you with creating a healthy and whole life. Together, we can help you discover and maintain the renewal and healing you desire.
I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelors and Masters of Social Work in 2011 and 2017, respectively.
I have 10 years of experience in the mental health field, offering services to children and adolescents, adults, and families in various settings including, schools, psychosocial programming, community mental health, partial hospitalization, and outpatient therapy. My additional work experience includes supervisory positions and training social work and counseling interns.
I specialize in issues related to depression, anxiety, trauma, women’s issues, and life transitions. My current client focus includes adolescents, college students, young professionals, adults, and families. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming and am passionate about helping women of color navigate the many stressors in their lives. In addition, I offer a confidential and therapeutic space for therapists to receive their own healing.
