Dr. Deja Gilbert, PhD, LMHC, LPC

CEO

Dr. Deja Gilbert is a professional with both executive and clinical experience in the behavioral healthcare industry. Dr. Gilbert obtained her PhD from Capella University and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in multiple states.

Dr. Gilbert began her journey in behavioral healthcare as a primary substance abuse counselor working with adolescents and their families. Utilizing the clinical insight that she had developed as a foundation, she then went on to successfully open, develop, and manage several behavioral healthcare facilities while implementing strong clinical programming that exceeded core clinical standards. Her goal is always to cultivate a culture of positive attitude, ethics, and values.

Dr. Gilbert’s contributions are not only apparent within the behavioral healthcare industry but her actions have also reached the local community in an impactful and meaningful way. It is her hope that the presence of foundational behavioral healthcare facilities will make a difference not only in the lives of the patients that it treats, but also provide an opportunity for educational discourse, awareness,
and an overall understanding of behavioral healthcare in the community in which it serves.
