About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker licensed in Massachusetts with over 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents, parents and families in various settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of mental health concerns consisting of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, loss and life changes. As a counselor, my mission is to create a safe place, demonstrate compassion and patience in order to empower and support my clients as they go on this very personal and emotional journey.

The first few sessions will focus on me getting to know you; your strengths and needs, exploring your personal goals for counseling and through this rapport we can determine if we are the right match. I typically use cognitive behavior therapy, where I assist my client with identifying their thoughts, feelings and behaviors in any given situation.

It takes courage to seek support and be willing to do the work to creating a healthier you. I will be committed to meeting you where you are at and providing you with judgment-free and empathic support, as well as the tools that you need in order to better navigate your life and enhance your relationships. I look forward to meeting you and working with you!

Just wanted to write a few words about Deanne. We have been working together for about 3 months now and I feel very supported by her but also challenged when the need arises. She listens well to the different issues that have arisen over the last few months and provides very "real world" ideas for me to utilize in solving them. She is genuine and does not give off the overly disconnected and analytical image that perhaps is stigmatized to counselors. It has been a pleasure and I look forward each week to my therapy sessions oftentimes wishing they were longer!

Deanne has been very helpful so far. Shes a good listener and offers helpful advice. She is always accommodating to my needs and scheduling.

I would definitely recommend her!

Deanne is the BEST! She helped me sort through a lot of pandemic anxiety I’ve been having, and working with her has really given me a better perspective. I feel a lot more balanced these days because of our sessions. She is a great listener, and I instantly felt comfortable taking with her.

Deanne has been so helpful in giving me tools and skills to help deal with my lack of self esteem and I cannot thank her enough for the effort and time she has given me.
