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, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Domestic Violence, Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD), Schizophrenia, and Self Harm. I have worked with children, teens, young adults, adults, geriatrics, and military veterans.

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.

Even though “Better Help” is not a one on one in person counseling session, I was still able to tell that Darlene was compassionate about her job. She responded to my messages in a timely manner and sent stuff throughout the week for me to read. If you are having trouble with anxiety, I highly recommend her.

I didn’t really get to fully dive in with her, but in the short space of time that I spoke with her, she was very professional and she was very patient. She helped to put my mind at ease. She seems like a good person to have therapy with.

I really like Darlene. I have only had a couple sessions, but I have felt better after each one. She seems very grounded and practical and compassionate and I appreciate her recommendations.

Darlene is a mind shifter! She is an inspiration, a motivator, what she says just sinks in and every phone calls ends with me saying “I never really thought of it that way”! I have one of the 1st things she said to me “you can’t reason with unreasonable people” written down and stuck to my fridge! I am so grateful for her knowledge, many many pearls of wisdom and how she has shifted my mindset. Legitimately, soul medicine and THE best self care!! This platform is brilliant. Love, love, love.

Written by M.I. on Mar 19, 2021 after counseling with Darlene for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, and self esteem

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.

Darlene can sit and listen to everything I have to say or coach me for as long as I need. She is fantastic and her guided help has truly put me on the path to healing. She helps me through past traumas and explains why they effect/cause my current issues. Absolutely a wonderful counselor

Ms. Fletcher has been a wonderful counselor. I want to get help and she’s more than willing to help me. She’s given me techniques to help me manage my symptoms better. And she has also asked me to do things outside of my comfort zone. There is no pressure involved, but I want to get better and I know they will help in my healing process.
