DFM Wellness Alliance

At DFM Wellness Alliance, I use individually tailored, solution-focused techniques to counsel my clients so they may identify and leverage their strengths during challenging times.

With an emphasis on understanding themselves and their environment, my goal is to help clients develop and acquire coping skills so they may live productive, fulfilling lives.

DFM Wellness Alliance is committed to the growth and development of clinicians. I have created a space , DFM SisterCamp, to provide clinical consultation & a professional community for like minded women to grow and thrive. I look forward to holding an authentic space where my sisters can Dream Focus and Make it happen!

Sheina Dixon DFM Sister Camp Associate Therapist

Sheina Dixon, MA, LCPC, NCC

For the past four years Sheina Dixon has been in the Mental Health Field. She has obtained her Masters from Concordia University Chicago in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2018. She currently holds licensure as a Clinical Professional Counselor.  Her focus has been to empower clients to reach a higher level of self-sufficiency and healing.
 
 The approach she takes to do this is through a holistic (mind, body, soul) lens as people cannot function as their best self in fragmented pieces. Understanding that the world in which we live, how we function, and the resources available to us determines the perspective and navigation in which one has. She encourages one to deal with themselves now because if they don’t then it delays the healing process and one will be faced to deal with things later.
 
Sheina has worked with a diverse population of clients by factors such as age, socioeconomic status, and ethnic groups that have dealt with varying challenges such as anxiety, depression, parent/child conflicts, grief, mood & behavior disorders, PTSD, and ADD/ADHD. Her passion for helping others and advocacy of mental health has led her to take on an open and eclectic approach to meet clients where they are. She walks alongside clients to assist them in meeting their therapeutic goals and recognizing the power and expertise one has over their own lives. Her passion, willingness, and advocacy are defining factors of who she is as a counselor.

Rasauna Riley-Brown, MA

I am a mental health professional with nearly 20 years of experience in the field. I utilize a person-centered approach to therapy because I believe my clients are the experts on their lives. My goal is to ensure I create a safe space for clients to express their feelings and talk through challenges. I am passionate about helping others gain insight into their own unique challenges and situations. Ultimately, my hope for everyone is healthy communication and healthy relationships!


I earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Northeastern Illinois University. Most of my career has been spent providing brief therapeutic interventions to children, young adults and families experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal/homicidal ideation and psychosis due to trauma. Recently I’ve shifted my focus to help other African American women experiencing stressors in life related to work, family and relationships.


In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my daughter, husband, family and friends. In addition, I love decorating and home improvement projects.
