Deja Alexander, PsyD
Education: BA in Psychology and Theatre (majors) & Africana Studies (minor), Oberlin College & Conservatory | MA and PsyD in Clinical Psychology, Adler University
Professional Interests: Multicultural concerns, 1st year student challenges and other life transitions, mood disorders including depression and anxiety, family of origin analysis, identity exploration, boundary setting, and interpersonal relationships. I offer services in the form of individual, couples, and group therapy along with occasional outreach events around campus. I identify my approach as client-centered, eclectic, collaborative, interpersonal, culturally informed, non-judgmental, validating and trauma informed. While I enjoy working with all students, I particularly enjoy working with students of the Africana diaspora and other students who hold marginalized and intersecting identities. I aim to help students live as their most authentic selves while being mindful of societal constructs, historical contexts, and safety.
