Our staff

Deanna is a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of counseling experience.    She received her Bachelors in Social Work from Stockton State in 1992 and her Masters in Social Work from Rutger's University-New Brunswick in 1996.   

She is dedicated to learning evidenced-based  approaches to treat OCD, PTSD, anxiety, trauma and sexual abuse beyond her college degree. Thus, she is trained in EMDR, ERP for 

OCD, Meridian Tap Therapy, and Trauma-Focused CBT.  She is actively working towards receiving her certification to be a Trauma specialist.

Deanna is compassionate about helping individuals get beyond their struggles.  She is outgoing, compassionate, down-to-earth and most of all dedicated to each individual that comes to her for therapy. 

She will challenge clients to move out of their comfort zones toward attaining their desired outcomes. Self-care, self-esteem, and caring are strong themes in her work with clients.

She works with children, teens, adults, and the elderly. Her work with the various ages and strategies are different to address age appropriate needs.  She believes in psycho-education and provides each client and any identified support persons with education about the treatment being administered  as well as the symptoms being addressed.

Deanna believes that parental involvement is important when working with children and teens, and she will often call upon parental involvement in the session.  She believes healing takes place with parents being involved and helping with the process. Parents are encouraged to be a part of the process.  No one person in the family is to blame. But, all family members are responsible for the solution.

In her spare time, Deanna enjoys spending time with her husband and two children traveling.   She enjoys turning her memories from those travels into lasting scrapbook pages for her children to enjoy.  she also loves to hang out with her friends and enjoys cooking for them when they all get together.
