Deana Caldwell

My approach to working with my clients is, first and foremost, person-centered as I want them to get all the benefits they possibly can from the counseling experience, and know that the treatment they’re receiving is tailored to their needs.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has specialized in trauma therapy but am also experienced in working with many mental health diagnoses amongst a very diverse demographic of clients. I received my undergraduate degree from Guilford College in 2005, majoring in Psychology. I spent some time as a case manager for Developmental and Cognitively disabled clients before pursuing my Master’s Degree at Capella University. I graduated with a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling in 2014. From there I worked as a Bereavement Counselor providing support and methods of coping with the loss of a loved one. I went on to work in outpatient mental health care where I treated clients with diagnoses such as Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Schizoafffective Disorder, as well as those wanting assistance with stress management, boundary setting, assertiveness or improving their self-esteem. I decided to attain more specialized training in trauma as I saw the need for such services. I have worked with clients who have experienced traumatic events including childhood or adult sexual abuse, domestic violence, intimate partner violence and emotional abuse. I am trained in these trauma-based therapy models; Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy with my clients. I realize for some, entering counseling is not an easy decision so I try to be the best guide I possibly can be on this healing journey.
