Deanna Diamond, MA, LPC
Sometimes, life can feel hopeless or overwhelming. Sometimes, we find that the coping tools we have relied on are no longer working to manage the altered reality around us. Sometimes, we all need help, and reaching out is the first step. My approach to therapy is client-centered and eclectic, but I believe in focusing on individual strengths and finding solutions-focused methods to address individual problems. With experience living and working in diverse societies, I seek to understand the client’s individual cultural perspectives and values. I uses cognitive and behavioral approaches but am open to adjusting techniques to the client’s needs and abilities.
With over eight years of experience teaching in higher education, I am uniquely qualified to help with the stressors and transitions of young adulthood and college life. I have also worked with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and has completed crime victim’s assistance certification through the State of North Carolina. I work with children (ages ten and up), adolescents, adults, and couples. My areas of specialization are: depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and LGBTQIA/gender identity issues.
I earned my M.A. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Houston-Victoria in 2017. I also holds a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University and a B.S. in Pre-law and Legal Studies from Marquette University.
