Welcome! I am glad you found me.
My name is Deanne, and I help people navigate the stress and uncertainty that can come with major life transitions. Whether you are facing a relationship change, a new job, health challenges, mid-life, or loss, my specialized therapy sevices will give you the confidence and tools you need to manage whatever life throws at you.
Because you deserve love and support! We all do!
Life transitions are an inevitable part of the human experience. Getting married, having a baby, changing jobs, a mid-life crisis, divorce, being diagnosed with a major illness, moving to a new city, or experiencing the loss of a loved one are all significant life events that can have a profound impact on our mental health and emotional wellbeing.
While some people may be able to navigate these transitions on their own, others may benefit from the support of a psychotherapist.
I can help.
I can help provide emotional support needed during times of transition. Individuals may experience a wide range of emotions, including sadness, anxiety, and fear when faced with an unexpected change. I can provide a supportive environment where individuals can express their feelings without fear of judgment or criticism.
I can help the client develop coping strategies to deal with the stress and uncertainty of a life transition. Coping strategies may include mindfulness techniques, problem-solving skills, and self-care practices.
I can help provide a new perspective. Sometimes an objective therapist can provide a fresh perspective on a situation and help individuals see things in a different light. This can be especially helpful when individuals are feeling stuck or overwhelmed.
I can help promote personal growth. Life transitions can be a time of personal growth and development. I can help individuals identify their strengths and weaknesses and work towards personal goals.
I can help by addressing the underlying mental health issues. Life transitions can exacerbate underlying mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression. A therapist can help individuals identify and address these issues, leading to improved mental health and wellbeing.
My Treatment Approach
I believe that therapy is a collaborative process. I work closely with my clients to develop personalized treatment plans that address their unique needs and goals.
I come from a humanistic approach and use a variety of evidence-based therapies, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Logo (Existential) Therapy. I use these methods of healing to help individuals develop the strategies they need to manage life’s transitions successfully.
I offer counseling services to adults in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and beyond from all backgrounds, and identities who need help navigating the challenges, and transitions in their life. Whether you are experiencing a significant life change or simply feeling overwhelmed by the stress of daily life, I can help.
I also work with people diagnosed with cancer. As a cancer survivor myself, and co-author of Not Now, Cancer, I’m Busy, I help individuals navigate the anxiety, depression, exhaustion, isolation, and existential angst a person may feel when facing a cancer diagnosis in the prime of life.
My sensitivity and compassion will help cancer survivors and their families feel safe to discuss the most difficult subjects relating to cancer, its treatments, and the effects both have on relationships, body image and self-worth, infertility, mortality, and more. Although cancer can be excruciatingly painful, it can also be an opportunity for change and growth, especially, with the help of someone who knows.
