I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Life Coach with 16 years of clinical experience. My guiding approach to effective therapy focuses on seeing the problem as separate from the person. I believe that people are the experts of their own lives. I choose to sit in a place of curiosity to help you uncover already present strengths or develop new approaches to life's challenges. I work collaboratively with those who consult me and foster a non-pathologizing and safe environment for people to have honest and sometimes painful conversations with the goal of reclaiming lost strengths, uncovering possibilities, and constructing the life they want to live.
I embrace tackling all kinds of problems and helping people create a more fulfilling life. I believe you are the author of your life story and there are a multitude of possibilities for your life just waiting to be uncovered. I love to laugh and believe laughter really is the best medicine! I find myself using humor (when appropriate) to create space to examine a problem. I enjoy the work I do with clients and find myself constantly learning from the journeys we take together.

I really appreciate the way Deanna checks on me to make sure everything is going ok for me. I was dealing with depression and breaking up with a boyfriend who was a narcissist. Deanna helped me to see that I am better without him in my life and encourages me to move forward. She has helped me realize that I am a happier person without him.
She's excellent! Listens, but also speaks honestly. She's great at asking hard questions!
I appreciate Deanna with her background and her expertise in helping me manage my issues.
Deanna Daniels responded in a timely manner and really helps me understand my current struggles and feelings towards them.
Deanna is very professional and checks in. I can tell that she truly cares about her profession and clients. She is understanding but also remains neutral to better assist me. I'm thankful to have her. I am also happy that she understands mental issues such as PTSD and bipolar (I could have used her 7 years ago!)
