Pastoral Counseling: 

DeeDee uses a combination of clinical counseling and pastoral counseling to reinforce the positive in the midst of turmoil; showing you that in times of pain and conflict that the power of "rising from the ashes" comes when you forge through your struggles.  Some of the most difficult things you may be going through may become your strength and motivation to soar higher. It is sometimes through our struggles ~ we find the wings to learn to fly.

Counseling Theories

DeeDee offers many options in therapy that may or may not include Pastoral or Christian Counseling. We always ask the client their needs and what direction is best for their healing journey. Sometimes it may include spiritual needs depending on where the client is in their walk and their importance the place on their faith. She was also trained by Dr. Terry Wardle in Inner Healing Prayer and Transformational Prayer through Ashland Seminary. Dr. Wardle was the first one who created the form of Inner Healing prayer and has written many books on the subject. 

DeeDee has also had experience and certifications with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Exposure Therapy with the Veteran's Administration that help with the extreme PTSD,  and various forms of Pastoral Counseling and Biblical Counseling which she holds a Masters of Clinical Pastoral Counseling in the State of Ohio (LPCC) and now by the license of the State of North Carolina (LCMHC).
