Donna Deadman

(LPC)

About Me

I am a graduate of Loyola University (formally Loyola College) in Baltimore, MD, with a Masters in School Counseling. I also am a Licensed Professional Counselor. (LPC)

Currently, I am a School Counselor with thirteen years of experience. I work with teens with a wide variety of concerns including depression, peer conflicts, relationship issues , anger management, ADHD, and anxiety. I also work with young adults with similar issues.

I am genuine and interactive. I treat clients with respect and compassion. My approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Gesalt Therapy. . Both approaches are practical in dealing with specific problems. CBT involves the therapist and client work collaboratively to build a strong rapport that is crucial in the process. Gesalt Therapy helps clients to become more aware of specific issues which is so crucial to change.

You have taken the first step. The online platform works well with many peoples busy schedules. I am available three evenings per week as well as weekends.

I look forward to working with you.

Written by H.A. on Nov 20, 2020 after counseling with Donna for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

I always look forward to my therapy session with Donna. She helps in clarifying my thoughts in a concise manner and allows me to express myself more. The way I think tends to spiral into a cycle and chatting with Donna helps me to identify the signs of this in order to escape the cycle before it overly effects my well being.

Donna is a fantastic counselor. She really does listen and makes it feel very friendly instead of clinical. I’d highly recommend her to other young women like myself, Donna is like a good friend! And she is encouraging/supporting when needed.
