I have been licensed in Ohio since 1996. Originally treating women with substance use disorders, I found my niche in trauma and abuse processing. I have also worked in psychiatric crisis response in the community, which taught me to think quickly on my feet and have multiple therapeutic approaches to connect with and assist people in healing. I believe in exploring a variety of ways to find the steps you need, to heal and move towards your future with joy. I find humor very helpful, while providing a safe space, to release the stress and provide another viewpoint. I look forward to working with you.
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Eating disorders, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Codependency, Dissociation, Divorce and Separation, Drug and Alcohol Addiction, Guilt and Shame, Mood Disorders, Post-traumatic Stress, Women's Issues

Deanna has helped me so much. I know what I need to work on & she has helped me do that. I have childhood trauma & need better help with boundaries & how to be assertive without being combative
