About Me

Congratulations on taking the first step to facilitating change.

My name is Darlene. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor ( CRC). I hold an M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling and an M.A. in Human Services Counseling . I have enjoyed a professional career working with diverse populations in a number of different settings. My experience includes but is not limited to Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Domestic Violence, Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), Schizophrenia, and Self Harm.

My counseling style is compassionate. I do not believe in attaching stigma to mental health. I strongly believe one should care for mental health as they would any other health condition. In a warm, and caring environment I help facilitate the the areas you care to address and changes you are ready to make. My approaches are client centered, cognitive behavioral, solution focused and trauma informed.

Ms. Fletcher has been amazing to work with. She listens attentively and makes sure to clarify before she responds. She is warm and inviting and easy to talk to. She maintains personal boundaries and encourages me to do so as well. She sends articles and information that are helpful and pertinent to our discussions, and often immaculately timed. She has even suggested that I seek help from another counselor when she feels that she is not qualified to help me in that specific area which makes me feel like she really has my best interest in mind and wants me to get the best help for me. I would absolutely recommend her to others seeking help.

This is my first experience in counseling, which I had largely put off due to horror stories from acquaintances who had poor experiences with their counselor. I was beyond relieved to find the exact opposite with Darlene. Sometimes even just having someone who I feel confident is unbiased in their evaluation is enough to put me at ease.
