Meet the Therapist
Hi! My name is Dametres Perkins and I am the proud founder of
Reclaiming Your Power, LLC. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Massachusetts. I have spent the past decade dedicating my career to helping both young and mature women who want to change the trajectory of their lives.
My clients are often high-functioning, professional, or academic individuals who struggle with vulnerability, boundaries, low self-esteem, and/or overcoming their trauma histories. Many of them identify as the “strong friend” who people forget to check in on.
I am deeply committed to the well-being of my clients and it is evident in my diligence as a practitioner. I have been trained in, and utilize, multiple trauma-informed treatment modalities such as Internal Family Systems, Brainspotting, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have conducted independent research as well as remained up-to-date with changes in the field of psychology and trauma work.
My approach with clients is relational, empowering, and full of laughter -- something I consider necessary for healing. It is important for me to build a strong rapport with my clients because I often challenge them to think or respond in ways that are outside of their comfort zones. I may include homework assignments and writing prompts as part of their treatment.
When I am not working, I enjoy barre workouts, soulful music, island cuisine, and watching my children grow into amazing young citizens of the world.
