Supervisee in Clinical Social Work
Deedra Everett is a Supervisee in Clinical Social Work at The Wise Family.
Deedra believes in creating a safe and healing space for growth and exploration. She sees play as the language children use to express and process experiences and big emotions. Borrowing from a blend of relational, psychodynamic, expressive, attachment-based, and family systems approaches, she works with clients to compassionately explore their inner worlds, develop coping skills, and work through trauma. She is experienced in working with families from many different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and is committed to cultural sensitivity, inclusivity, and affirmation.
Deedra holds a Bachelor’s degree from Seattle University and a Master of Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University and is currently pursuing clinical licensure and play therapy training.
Deedra lives in Alexandria with her husband, daughter, and a Chiweenie rescue. She loves the beach, reading, reading at the beach and napping with her Chiweenie. She also enjoys spending time with extended family and friends, sharing meals and playing games.
“Dr. Amy talks about moving children from being externally-driven to internally-driven…and she helps you get there!”— Parent of 15-year-old daughter
“We read through your website from start to finish and were so impressed by your extensive credentials and training but, the real reason why we want to work with you is your clear enthusiasm for children and families and the wisdom and deep love you share for both!”— Mom of 12-year-old child with special needs
“Supporting the mental health of the kids and teens in our community is one of the most challenging and also one of the most important jobs anyone could have. And I see your team doing it with both skill and enthusiasm.Our family could not be more fortunate to have found your practice 3 years ago.
Our kids are growing up but we still keep your number on our phone and we know we can reach out to your team if we need it. We tell everyone who asks about the WISE people at The Wise Family.
Thank you for doing what you do for so many people.”—from the parent of two former clients (siblings)— Parent of two former clients (siblings)
