I would first like to express how glad I am that you’ve joined me here and how eager I am to collaborate with you on exploring your needs. I have always had a heart for others and a desire to journey with them as they reach their fullest potentials. I have worked in a variety of agency and private practice settings with all sorts of persons and needs, but it has always been my deepest hope to provide therapy from the perspective of Christ’s love. Speak Life exists to be a setting that reestablishes grace and hope, and aids you in renewing your mind through both His Word and your speech. Speak Life Therapy was established in November of 2020 by its founder, Diondra Perry. Speak Life stems from the Biblical Proverb, "Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose;" and aims to equip you with both Biblical and/or practical skills that help you walk out a fulfilled life. I begin by creating a safe and structured environment where you can sort through your life stressors alongside a nurturing, supportive and non-judgmental ally. This atmosphere becomes the space where you can finally feel safe enough to approach and change the parts of you that need healing. While comfort and safety are important, I also believe that structure and accountability are necessary to help you get and stay unstuck. A Biblically Principled approach is also available as I believe there is healing in confessing our brokenness (James 5:16) and peace when we strive less in our own might and more in His presence (1 Peter 5:7).
