About DeAnna


I am a licensed counselor with over 20 years of experience providing therapeutic services to children, adolescents, and adults as a licensed school counselor, licensed special educator, academic therapist, and Certified Recreational therapist.  I have a Master's in Counseling and a Bachelor's in Recreational Therapy.  I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and I am trained in Brainspotting (BSP).  Brainspotting is a talk therapy that helps uncover a client's unprocessed traumas through fixed eye positions that link to an area of the mind that retains thoughts and emotions related to trauma.

As a school counselor, I worked with issues such as anxiety, depression, divorce, blended families, death & grief, sexual identity, peer isolation & harassment, physical, emotional & sexual abuse.  I also have experience as a

multi-cultural counselor having served as a counselor and learning specialist in an

international school in Seoul, South Korea.

I have extensive experience working with people with learning differences and their families, including dyslexia, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder and executive functioning issues.  I provide academic therapy and counseling associated with Individual Education Plans (IEP's) and 504 plans.
