While this decision has not been an easy one, it is in the best interest of all RTD participants and our local community to move all 2020 workshops to online format. As the situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we will provide further communications regarding future workshops. We appreciate you hanging in here with us, and look forward to learning and growing together this year. Most of all, we wish everyone and their loved ones safety and the best during this unprecedented time.

May 7th | 1-3 PM | Zoom Workshop

Addressing Cultural, Racial, and Diversity in Today's World and How Mental Health Professionals

can Address These Issues Effectively and Appropriately.

Dieula Previlon, M.A., LPC-S
Elevate Life Coaching, Counseling and Consulting LLC

Learning objectives include:

  1. Give an overall illustration of the need for diversity.
  2. Define BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) populations and their unique needs.
  3. Recommendations when working with BIPOC clients.

Dieula is an LPC-S, Certified Life Coach, Ordained Minister through the Evangelical Covenant Church Denomination, and a leader within her communities. As founder and CEO of ElevateHer International Ministries and Elevate Life Coaching, Counseling, and Consulting LLC – Dieula’s hope was for the focus to be centered around women’s emotional healing. We know when trauma hits a community, women and children are often the most severely impacted. She believes when a woman actively enters a journey of emotional healing, she is better positioned to be her best at whatever role she is called to play. With ElevateHer, she entered Dallas, Lew Sterret jail, teaching and challenging women to choose life, no matter the difficulties and where they might have found themselves. 

ElevateHer has also offered Trauma informed training in the US, Kenya, DR Congo and Brazil. The hope and desire for ElevateHer is for its message to get in the hands of women all over the world so they can be elevated and empowered to live life fully as God intends. Every woman has a right to live a life of purpose on purpose. Dieula is also well known for presenting about the “Act of Forgiveness”.

About RTD

Relational Therapists of Dallas is a professional organization for mental health professionals in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.

We provide networking and continuing education for clinicians who work with relationships, couples, and family systems.

We are a supportive and inclusive community of LMFT’s, LCSW’s, LPC’s, LCDC’s, PhD’s, PsyD’s, Psychiatrists (MD’s), in/outpatient treatment facilities, and attorneys (JD’s).


We host almost monthly meetings, with guest speakers, on a wide variety of topics related to relationships, family systems, and mental health.

Meetings occur in February, March, April, May, September, October, and November. They generally occur the first Friday of the month, from 1-3pm.

Prior to each meeting, we host a networking lunch at noon (12pm), hosted by a treatment facility who presents for 10 minutes at the end of the lunch.

By attending all meetings, CEU requirements for most master’s level mental health licensures are completed.

February’s topic is always ethics and lasts 3 hours (1-4pm) to meet CEU requirements for most mental health disciplines. In January, we host a supervisor refresher course which lasts 3 hours and is not included in “participation”. Additionally, we host a holiday party at the end of the year.
