About Me

By the time you read a few biographies on BetterHelp, you may wonder why many seem similar, and you may be confused by all the different terms used. I can guarantee that if you decide to choose to work with me, it will be a unique experience from the usual “talk therapy” or a Dr. Phil” approach. You should look for rapid and concrete results from our work together within a session or two.

My name is Cletus (Clete) Deller and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (16 years experience) who started out my professional career as a teacher. My overarching goal in therapy is to help you create more peace and less pain in your life. Pain (psychological and physical) is inevitable, but our reaction to it is our choice. At the completion of our sessions, you will have a “toolbox” of tools to build the life you deserve, and be able to identify concrete and measurable positive changes in your life from the therapy. In addition, we will build together, a blueprint to help you begin a meaningful values-driven life.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in all areas of mental health. I have extensive experience working with veterans with PTSD, suicidal individuals (I was Clinical Director for a facility for 5 years that cared for suicidal, homicidal, and individuals with debilitating mental health issues) and addiction. I am also a Certified Clinical Sexual Therapist (CST). That certification requires a year of additional training that prepares you for all therapy that has a sexual component. Only the state of Florida requires this additional training to present yourself as a sexual therapist. I was also the sole provider In Indian River County for four years for court ordered classes in Parenting, Domestic Violence, and Anger Management. I was Guardian ad Litem of the year and given the “Everyday Hero” award from the Jacksonville Woman’s Center for providing pro-bono counseling to rape victims.

You will find me a therapist that is laser-focused on you, non-judgmental, empathetic, trustworthy, a people person, and especially results oriented. It would be an honor to work with you with as an individual, couple, or as a family.

The best therapist I’ve ever worked with, his empathy is second to none, and couldn’t recommend a better person to help you get through whatever it may be you’re dealing with.

After my first session, I instantly felt a lot better. I appreciate that he takes time to speak to me almost everyday, any time and is really knowledgeable. I have so much respect for him and look forward to speaking to him when I do!

Cletus Deller is a good therapist. I havent had Clete for too long as my therapist but I already feel more understood than any other therapist before me. He genuinely cares for your well-being. I'ts so much easier to care for you future and your own well-being if the therapist cares too. I would definitely recommend.

Cletus helped me make a huge transformation. He is very results oriented and really does deliver. He is a great listener, has a wealth of knowledge about the psychology of awareness and change. Very quickly adapts methods to the individual, and gives valuable observations and suggestions, to enable progress. Doesn't believe in non-sense and wasting time, but at the same time has great empathy and ability to motivate. Can't say enough good things about Cletus. At least for me, it was a great fit, and made a huge difference for me to get to where I wanted to be.

Clete has done exactly what he said he would in his description. He's really helped me get out of a weird place that I'd tried to get out of on my own and also with the help of others but I was just going round and round in. He definitely has a lot of experience and knowledge and knows how to use it to help you navigate your way out of the woods. If you need some help getting to a better place, from my experience, I can sincerely recommend Clete.

Dr. Cletus makes me feel at ease.. very approachable and understanding .. i find him easy to talk to, aand the most admirable feat about him is that he actually took his time and did his best to understand my culture and where i am coming from which is a bit unfamiliar to him, but stepped to the occasion thus provided the best therapy for me

Cletus is an outstanding therapist and human being. He was understanding of my special needs and wants, stayed open minded towards my request regarding the direction of the therapy and the methods I preferred to use. We had an intellectual and enlightening conversation about mind, thought processes and spirit. Even if we are only at the beginning of our quest together, I couldn't be more enthusiastic.

Cletus has been extremely helpful for me. Each session I leave with different tools that I can immediately apply to addressing a range of issues that may come up or that I have been struggling with. I highly recommend and I am forever grateful for his patience and support with my emotional health and general personal growth.
