What's in a Name?

DISCLAIMER-This is just for fun and implies no endorsement of, accuracy or safety for the site listed below-just fun. Also, I am not saying that there are no other "Darnita's" out there-I actually know of a few; I used my entire name for the search. I'd love to hear from you if your name is "Darnita" or you know someone with that name.

As a child, I hated my name. It was "too unique" and people always mispronounced it. I always found this strange since it had no unusual consonant combos or even a string of vowels to cause confusion. It's pronounced as spelled-D-A-R-N-I-T-A). To this day, I still have to correct people, especially those who for the life of me, can't see (or pronounce) the "R". I jokingly say that since my mother paid for the "R", it should be used!! As I grew older, I formed a greater appreciation for my unique identifier-my name. Just for fun, I checked this site, which I'm sure you've seen in some form or fashion, or received in an email.

I truly am unique and so is my name!! What about you?

About Me

My photo
Washington, DC, United States
I am Dr. Darnita L. Payden, Executive Director/Owner of Dr. DClutter™ Life Management, a division of PreciousOnes™ LLC. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and over 20 years of experience working to help clients discover their strengths and talents. Having worked as a therapist, college professor, grief specialist and trainer, I have encountered in my journey many of the issues my clients may face. I have a sincere desire to help you find clarity, organization and independence in your life and environments. I know that life can be hectic, but I desire to help my clients bring as much order, peace and enjoyment back into their lives as is possible. What separates me from the norm? I focus on the client from a holistic perspective. I realize that most people desire a functional and an organized life, but may simply need support, understanding and information about why they have the habits or tendencies that have led to disorganization. I do not perform “quick fixes” or provide “one-size-fits-all” guidance, but I strive to provide strategies to my clients that will be life changing and useful for a lifetime. Dr. DClutter™ is a name well earned!!
