Deanna received her MA in Marriage, Family, and Child Counselling and has experience working with individuals and couples, families and children. From a young age, Deanna often found herself joining people in their joys and challenges of life. Her natural ability to welcome people in and create safety for them is at the foundation of who she is, and of her work as a therapist. Life can be hard and complicated sometimes, and it has always been an honour for Deanna to join people along the way of making sense of it.
People often describe feeling stuck and while they may know they want change, they don’t know how to get there. Together with the client, Deanna helps them determine their goal for therapy and through her direct, but gentle approach, helps people make sense of their story and move toward the growth and healing they’re searching for. So often people develop unproductive ways of responding and Deanna believes therapy can help people develop more worthwhile and healthy ways of living.
Deanna’s experience includes working with clients through anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, relational difficulties, anger management, grief and transitions that come throughout life. Deanna also provides the 5-session pre-martial course package through PREPARE.
Deanna is currently on leave, but we anticipate her return in 2022.
