My purpose in all that I do is to empower women to live a life of purpose on purpose. I believe when women can embrace all of who they are, become aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and navigate through the ups and downs of life, they are better able to live full lives and make great strides. I am an advocate for the voiceless, an encourager to all who need support and to elevate those that find themselves in humble life circumstances.
Dieula’s Style and Approach
The first word that comes to my mind when I describe my approach to counseling is PRESENCE. When I engage with my clients, I am fully present, paying attention to not only the words they share but also the non-verbal communication. I help my clients become aware of their narratives, narratives that often seem to control their thoughts and actions. I then help them process those narratives and negotiate new narratives. In the new narratives, I help my clients find their voice and create new strategies for living full and whole lives.

“All too often women believe it is a sign of commitment, an expression of love, to endure unkindness or cruelty, to forgive and forget. In actuality, when we love rightly we know that the healthy, loving response to cruelty and abuse is putting ourselves out of harm's way.”
"You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it."
