Welcome! I am glad you found me.
My name is Deanne, and I help people live life more fully through therapy.
Because you deserve love and support! We all do!
No person is immune to the difficulties of life. Everyone at one time or another suffers deep loss, feelings of disillusionment, meaninglessness, anxiety, and painful choices. There is good news, however. There is hope.
When problems go beyond what your friends, or your family can do, an experienced and caring therapist can help.
I believe every person has the capacity and desire for healing and change.
Drawing from my years of education and life experience, I come from a place of empathy and warmth creating an environment where you feel safe, seen, and heard as you gain more personal awareness and insight, tap into your inner strength, and create the life you have always imagined.
There is no topic too personal to discuss. From break-ups, trauma, parenting, substance use, illness, loss, and other life stressors, to major life transitions such as postpartum, mid-life, career, divorce, empty-nest, and retirement, together we will examine and process your most difficult feelings and situations, opening a space for self-discovery, improved relationships, healthier coping mechanisms, and ultimately growth and transformation.
I offer individaul one-on-one counseling in person or via telehealth. I work with women, men, adolecsents and the LGBTQ community. Sessions are 50 minutes and completely confidential.
Couples & Family Counseling
Our relationships impact the quality of our lives. Thus, for lasting change to occur, it is sometimes necessary to include the family. As a therapist and mother, I understand the complexities that arise within a family. In a safe and warm environment, we will work together to address issues, improve communication skills, and resolve conflict so that you and/or your partner, and/or your children can connect at a deeper level. In this way, the overall physical, emotional, and mental well-being of the family as well as the individuals within the family are improved and a feeling of love and connection is restored.
Counseling Cancer Survivors
I also work with people diagnosed with cancer. As a cancer survivor myself, I understand the anxiety, depression, exhaustion, isolation, and existential angst you may feel when dealing with a cancer diagnosis. My sensitivity and compassion will help you 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.
–Treat yourself with kindness and compassion, and give yourself the gift of therapy–
