HI, I’M DARLENE.
I am passionate about helping individuals discover who they want to become as a person, to realize their strengths, their own potential, and take control over their well-being.
• I will always be honest and truthful because I recognize that this is YOUR life.
• I will always treat you with dignity because YOU deserve to be treated that way
• I will always treat you like an individual because YOU matter
Things that will not occur on this journey
• I will not disrespect or belittle you because there has already been too much of that in YOUR life
• I will not degrade or “talk down” to you because chances are YOU already do that to yourself
• I will not tell you I can “fix you” because I do not view YOU as “broken”
Areas I treat anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma
I’m a LPC in the state of Oklahoma since 2019 and LPC in the state of Arkansas since 2019 and have worked in both an outpatient based center setting as well as an inpatient based hospital setting,
My style: I strive to be the type of therapist that can provide a comfortable relaxed environment where individuals can “just be themselves” and discuss things they need to, work on things they need to, and heal from things they need to.

Darlene is the only therapist Ive been able to be open with. She is helping me overcome my obstacles and help me be more stable. She is the first person who im not scared of them running away. Im happy she is my therapist.
Darlene is super cool. She is doing a great job talking me through my stuff. 5 stars. Highly recommend
While it’s true I have not had Darlene Cantu LPC as my therapist for long, I have a great feeling about her. She has shown nothing but support and helpful ideas on how to navigate life. Truly a blessing to have found her!
