About me

My name is Demetrius Clay. I am currently 33 years old of age, and I am an African American male. Before receiving my LPC, I received my Masters in Psychology & Counseling and my Educational Specialist in Clinical Counseling. I have been working with children & youth and adolescents since 2016. I started off working for a clinical mental health outpatient facility. I did individual counseling and group counseling each day. In 2017, I started working for a public school district that serves grades 6th-8th. I am currently still a behavioral counselor. I worked with teenagers with behavioral problems, such as: conduct disorder, ADHD, and oppositional defiant behavior. I worked with teenagers with depression and anxiety and along with other mental health issues. I helped parents with "Parenting Issues." Some parents would request me to see their child due to me being a male counselor. I also worked with male and female teenagers that were having sexual identity issues. When it comes to sensitive female issues, I may refer to a female therapist to help better serve that particular female client.

My goal is to help each child and parent to overcome difficult barriers that are preventing growth. I am flexible in my schedule to meet the needs of all clients. I am open to video call (zoom or another platform, phone call, and messaging.

Written on Jan 09, 2024 after therapy with Demetrius for 3 months

Demetrius has been working with my son only for the past 2-3 months, but I see an improvement in his confidence already. My son schedules his own appointments and appreciates that Demetrius allows him to choose texting or whichever way he is most comfortable communicating with him.

Great therapist

Written on Oct 25, 2023 after therapy with Demetrius for 7 months

I am so pleased I found Demetrius. He is the only therapist my son has ever engaged with and after 10 months he continues to find his session very supportive.
I love the fact that I can message Demetrius with any concerns and he always responds quickly despite being in another country.
Teen counselling is the only therapy my son has engaged with after years of searching.

He is kind, compassionate and he listens. I appreciate his ability to reframe and look at things from a different perspective. He also talks to you instead of at you, and for that I am grateful. He holds space in a gentle way.

I’ve worked with Demetrius just a few weeks now. He makes me feel seen, validated and heard. He’s a great listener and he’s a great responder as well. I love the worksheets he sends to me after our sessions that feel relevant to what we have been discussing. He is easy to talk to. I would highly recommend.

Demetrius Clay was a wonderful therapist for me. He not only set a professional environment, but a warm and friendly one as well. He made sure to check up on reoccurring issues every week and got to the root of how to handle my emotions. I came here looking for help and am leaving here feeling like myself again. Thank you a ton Mr. Clay!

Demetrius is kind and a helpful, listening ear. His disposition is charming and pleasant. He helped me stay grounded and focus on "saving the day" instead of "putting out fires" at work and reminded me of the possibilities of delegating some of the tedious work that I have to do. I highly recommend him to anyone on teencounseling.com!

The first piece of advice I got, in session one, was simple, easy, and superbly effective to manage the situation I was facing. Throughout the rest of our sessions, Mr Clay has been insightful, helpful, and considerate. He has helped me grow and become stronger.

Written on Jan 10, 2023 after therapy with Demetrius for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Demetrius was so helpful for me, and in such an efficient and effective way.
I engaged via live chat and was surprised at the depth and accuracy of his insights via messenger.
I got great real time comments during our sessions and extremely relevant and helpful homework to work with between sessions.
It’s not always easy to find support in our community, and given that I live in Australia we have even fewer resources here.
Demetrius was also really flexible with scheduling and I’m so glad we could make it work.
In just the first three sessions he has made a huge impact on my strength to navigate to future for myself and my relationship.
Thank you!

I have been working with Demetrius for couple of months now, although still in therapy wanted to leave this review in case if anyone would find it helpful and is looking for a therapist!

Definitely recommend Demetrius, I was in a much darker place when just started therapy, it’s still a long way to go. However, I feel very much supported, and uplifted after our sessions. Just feels like there is someone ‘there’ for you. Sometimes I forget I talk to a therapist, as it feels like talking to a friend. Demetrius is also very non judgemental and guides towards the right direction very gently, without pushing as some therapists do. I never felt uncomfortable talking about anything, I have food for thought after our sessions. Thank you
