About Me

I have been employed as a Counselor since 2007. Since this time, I have supported many individuals and families obtain identified goals. Prior to entering the field of counseling, I worked as a Social Worker. As a Social Worker, I had the opportunity to nurture professional qualities that have aided in my transition to counseling.

Developing trusting relationships is the foundation of a positive counseling experience. I recognize and embrace the uniqueness in each of my clients. Although I practice from a theoretical background that includes person-centered and cognitive-behavioral models, I tailor my approach to address individual client needs. My counseling style is warm, accepting and encouraging.

Each of us has the capacity for personal growth. As we move through our lives, there are often moments when we feel lost, alone or uncertain about our future. Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to receive guidance and support. I have been successful in assisting children, adolescents and adults in this journey.

Darcel is an expert in listening and giving strategies to find more joy in life even when stress and anxiety issues make that seem impossible. She has really helped me move through some difficult issues and improved my outlook and overall wellness and joy.

Darcel has been amazing! She listens intently, provides excellent feedback and is extremely supportive. So far, I have had nothing but positive experiences with her. She builds you up, but will still point out hard truths when you need to hear them. At the end of our sessions, I feel lighter each time.

Darcel is patient and understanding. She asks good follow-up questions to get to the heart of issues in a sensitive manner. I feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and opinions with her. I believe she has good intentions and my welfare in mind.

She is always so open and really just lets you talk and helps you understand yourself better! She never judges you or makes you feel bad about anything you say or do.

Darcel and I have only had a few sessions so far, but I can honestly say that she is a wonderful and validating listener, voice of support and reason, and an all-around excellent counselor. Even just in the past couple of weeks I have already managed to not only start to feel better, but literally take physical actions in making my life and my specific life situations better, and that is something that I had yet to do before interacting with her. Darcel has helped me to feel empowered and find the strength, courage, and desire within myself to take real-life action steps to make changes in my life, and I appreciate her so much for that.

She's an excellent listener, and offers meaningful feedback. She really cares, and it shows.

I've only had 2 sessions with Darcel so we are just getting started and digging into thinks and working on goals. She is supportive, knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend her highly.

Written by J.A. on Mar 05, 2020 after counseling with Darcel for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, and grief

In just a few weeks, Darcel has actually given me a sliver of hope, which is something I thought I would never find after losing my wife, partner, and best friend at such a young age. I'm looking forward to seeing where our journey takes us.

It really feels like she enjoys what she does and takes a vested interest in what I am trying to accomplish with therapy.

Darcel Elliot is welcoming, makes me comfortable, and is very good at listening/zeroing in on what the issues are that concern me.

Written by R.E. on Jan 25, 2020 after counseling with Darcel for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and relationship issues

Darrel checks in on me even when she’s not scheduled to do so at the end of the week and she messages me back within hours. It makes me feel cared about. She makes me feel safe and I feel validated and heard. I am so grateful.
