When I work with teens I create an environment of trust and safety where teenagers can explore their feelings, express themselves freely and find out who they are. This can be a very trying time for teens and sometimes they just need a little guidance. During the session we will both talk and listen, helping discover who they are and how they want to interact positively in our world. I am committed to making the therapy session a fun environment where we work together to chase away fear, stress, anxiety, and depression and invite in strength and awareness.

She’s absolutely the best - hands down - my teen daughter immediately connected with Deana & looked forward to their weekly sessions finding them extremely helpful. My daughter said she felt like Deana really cares about me . Simply the best !!!
Deana is awesome, not just a counselor but a friend who actually cares and listens while offering expert advise.
Deana is absolutely amazing; I had years of CBT therapy with only a small amount of impact. Deana, however, brought a voice of reason and was the sounding board I've always needed. She's genuinely life changing.
Deana is one of those people who genuinely likes to help others. She is absolutely the right type of person to be a counsellor, because she takes time to listen and understand what your concerns are. In fact, often times she is able to connect the dots in places I would not have been able to realize so easily. Deana is very easy to talk to, and naturally puts her clients at ease, allowing them to speak freely.
Deana Duckenfield has the knowledge and expertise to create positive outcomes.
Thank you, Deana
I really like deana . The services of the site are great and so help me being in a small town it’s nice not to have to travel
A lovely understanding expert! Always asks the right questions, couldn't recommend enough :)
I clicked with Deana the instant I stumbled upon her profile. She has helped me see things in a different, more positive light. I feel grateful to have her.
Deana has been extremely helpful navigating me through my issues. She is kind, understanding, supportive, and does not pass any judgement. I hope to come to closure with my therapy needs soon but would request her assistance whenever the need arose.
Deana is a top-notch counsellor. Perfect balance of listening, guiding and challenging. I feel safe with her and that allows me to figure out how to get over the hurdles that would be too tough to address on my own. Would absolutely recommend.
She is absolutely wonderful! I feel so comfortable opening up to her. She is great at validating my feelings and truly makes me feel that I'm not alone in this. Truly amazing woman.
In the short time that Deana and I spoke, she was very helpful with my scenario, and has helped me make some hard but needed decisions in my life. Would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs someone to talk to.
Even though I have come to her with a complex set of symptoms and questions, she listens and helps me leave every session feeling a bit more confident. My family started seeing improvements after just a month!
Deana has been really wonderful. She immediately inspired confidence and made the most out of every session. I've made so much progress so quickly. I'll be forever grateful I contacted Pride and was matched with Deana.
Deana is an absolutely wonderful therapist to talk to, she has helped me tremendously with my anxiety and depression issues. She has a very humanistic approach to counseling, and completely helps in understand the way some emotions come to play. Above all, she does not judge in any way, and is constantly proactive in reaching out to me even when sometimes I forget to keep up with counseling. I highly recommend her to anyone experiencing mental issues, or for someone who needs an outlet to vent even. Thank you Deana for the amazing work you do!
My counselor is really good at getting to the root of my problems,its like when I think my problem is one simple thing it turns out to be a whole puzzle and that's what I appreciate the most ,apart from that, she checks up on me on her own accord which makes me feel cared for and she schedules appointments on her own which just makes me know how supportive she is.
Deana is a good listener and never judges, she just gives impartial support and advice.
I’m really happy with Deana. She’s been really helpful, kind, and respectful. She’s empathetic not just with me, but with my loved ones when we talk about them. She’s easy to talk to and an excellent counsellor.
Deana is a wonderful counselor. She quickly establishes an intimate and trusting atmosphere, and it's very easy to talk to her about the most difficult things without the fear of being judged or dismissed.
Deana has truly helped me get into a better place.
Deana is absolutely incredible! She is so understanding and helpful. I could not recommend her more.
She really wants to learn the way you need help before jumping right in and tries to tailor the experience to each client
Deana is very comforting and empathetic towards most situations. She listens and is very proactive with her responses and advice. Deana makes a space for you to feel comfortable.
I really enjoy my sessions with Deana. She’s really helpful and understanding. I was severely depressed when I started therapy, and I was on antidepressants, and recently I realized that my depression is gone. And we’ve also gone into my issues with my family and I’m slowly figuring myself out thanks to Deana.
In the short amount of time that I have been with Dana and Pride, I find it very helpful.
Deana has been incredible. I wasn't sure what to expect from an online service... I'm no stranger to counseling but I have often felt like my counselor was telling me I shouldn't feel the things I was feeling. I didn't feel heard or understood. Deana is the exact opposite. She is incredibly understanding and supportive. I feel like she truly has my best interests at heart and I always end a session feeling like progress was made. Thank you, Deana. You have made a difference in my life in only a matter of weeks.
Denna is a great listener and offers support and helps you see things from a different view. I love the the talks she sends to help. I would highly recommend her.
Deana is a wonderful therapist! She has empathy, she's a good listener, she's open minded. I think I couldn't have found a better therapist.
When messaging with Deana, I can tell there’s a REAL person with REAL concerns and suggestions on the other end. Others in the past have put off a robot-like vibe almost, but Deana’s realistic and down to earth persona brings another level of online assistance.
Deana has been great so far, she's listened to everything I've had to say and responds to me in the way I said I would prefer so has tailored her responses according to what I didn't like in my previous counsellor, she's been very useful in the short time I've had her, I'd definitely recommend her :)
Deana’s insight and wisdom go far beyond her years. She has a very unique ability to put things in perspective in a very non judgmental way and REGULARLY helps me to see things with a much healthier perspective. I wish I could put her in my pocket and carry her around all day with me, but having her available to me here is a fair compromise. She has helped me clarify in my mind so many things including: divorce, personal relationships post divorce, business issues, every day self esteem and confidence issues. I would recommend her whole heartedly to anyone who needs a friendly, knowledgeable counselor who will call you on your bullshit but never make you feel badly about yourself doing it. I feel I truly am a better person because of her counsel. I definitely have learned to cope with a lot of issues that come up better.
Deana is very personable and listens so well. I have had many problems with councillors in the past and her expertise and experience has helped me. She has made me feel comfortable that she is there and it has opened me up a lot.
I have had a bad experience with therapy before and so was cautious entering into this. Deana immediately gave me reason to trust her with some insightful, but measured feedback and questions. While I was going off on tangents she was able to stay clear and keep things simple. So far so good!
All I want to say is thank you so much <3 I will be back and I will find you again :)
She is very supportive. I look forward to my counselor sessions.
Deana is simply great! She is able to listen to you and to make the conversation flow. She managed to make you feel very motivated and flip your negative emotions straight away. She demonstrate a sincere concern about your persona and she goes far and beyond to help you. If i did not contact her or if we had a session schedules in a week time she would text me to check out how I was. She is great!!
Deana is awesome! She listens & gives great support & advice! My experience with her has been great!
Great listener, understanding and flexible
She consistently followed up and provided feed back . When she felt that it would be appropriate to end the sessions she communicated same and reasons. She has demonstrated empathy and sensitivity.
Deanna is extremely kind and caring. I reached out to her in a time of deep need and her support was deeply appreciated in helping me turn my life around. I would absolutely recommend her as a knowledgeable and effective therapist. Thank you Deanna.
I have not worked with Deana very long at this point but I feel that she has been very helpful. She seems to be in tune with my concerns and has offered good advice.
She's amazing. Simple as that.
She is kind, understanding and patient with me. :)
Deana has been very kind and supportive, and she understands my issues and doesn't belittle them unlike a couple of my previous counsellors IRL. She also pushes me to get outside my comfort zone, which is a huge issue for me, but ultimately necessary. Since my comfort zone is about the size of a kiddie pool. She is a great and compassionate counsellor.
Deana was my very first therapist. She has been extremely kind, thoughtful and an excellent counselor.
Deana responds in a timely manner, while taking care to sensitivities, she ensures to cover all her clients concerns. She also checked in when she didn’t hear from me like she regularly would, that made me feel like she did care and was sympathetic to my need. Thank you for being the ear and shoulder and embrace that I needed. Thank you for the video you shared that helped aid my healing process.
Deana has been a great councillor. Very understanding and also gives well thought out advice and perspective. She also has a calm mannerism and replies in a timely manner.
Deana has been a great support to me and gives me things to think about, she is also a great listener.
Deana is a very good listener. I can tell that she takes the time to read my messages, and that means a lot to me. She's very caring and compassionate, but she also asks the hard questions, but in a good way. So far she's really helped me reflect on some important things. I would definitely recommend her!
I have to say that I this was a experience that I wasnt to sure about doing. Im glad I did in the week I have used this. Deana was a really nice counselor, she made you feel welcoming from the start. Im glad she was my counselor! :) Thank you so much for this experience!!!
Deana is amazing, she is helping me find ways to cope with my anxiety that work for me, not a textbook approach which is so refreshing. She always listens and is always there to talk too when I need help. I have been with Deana now for nearly three months and I am growing stronger every week. I have had my set backs but Deana has always been there to pick me up and support me in getting back on track. I don’t know where I’d be without her and I am so grateful I chose to seek help in my problems.
Deana is awesome. She helped me come up with some really useful tools and just ways of thinking about things that help me be more successful and happy. She's a joy to speak with, she's positive and understanding, and she's a REALLY good listener. She was just what I needed when I was in a space where support really was important to me.
I love talking to Deana Duckenfield. She has helped me a lot. I’ve been through two other counselors here and I didn’t feel they were a good fit, but I finally found someone I believe I clicked with. :)
Deana was always so kind and such a great listener. She had some really cool and unique strategies to help me cope with stress and other things I was dealing with that I really appreciated. Would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Deana is friendly and flexible. She helps with what can be helped, and tells you the best way to tackle things in your situation.
She has been so amazing for me. She has helped me through all my challenges and I would recommend her to anyone. She's an angel.
Deana is such a good listener. Deana has done a great job so far of aligning with me, giving back-up for her reasoning, and then helping me find ways that are practical to deal with the concerns I have. She’s great!
Deana is amazing. Deana is able to help you understand what is really troubling you and give you very actionable solutions that you should apply throughout the day. She will help you understand yourself.
Deana is a very kind and competent professional. She has helped me to understand and deal with my issues and with her encouragement I am better prepared to make some very difficult decisions. Thank you so much Deana.
Deana Duckenfield has helped me deal with my grief after my husband‘s death. I still have a long way to go, but it’s very comforting knowing I can write her note anytime of the day or night and get a quick response.
She is super nice and understanding, gives plenty of different ways to help with life issues. She adapted to the way that I needed counselling by asking questions rather than just making me talk. I really appreciate having her to talk to.
Deanna has been a magic worker and really helped me through my struggles. Even with my worst doubts, her perspective was always refreshing yet realistic, and always always made me feel 100x better. I've had other therapists that made me reflect in a way that made me question things in a negative way, but Deana always had a positive spin and different outlook. It was very easy to connect with her from day one. She is, without a doubt, destined for this type of work and I've valued every minute with her. She really puts in the extra time and effort to get to know her clients. Best therapist I've ever had, hands down. I could never thank her enough.
Very helpful and understanding. Helped me to focus on the questions and issues in my relationship. Very approachable and easy to talk to.
Deana helped me nail down the cause of my anxiety and concerns in a friendly, practical and caring approach. She is very down to earth, and doesn't use psychology jargon or mental health terms, she talks to you like a friend who's got a ton of experience to share, making you feel valued, respected and supported. She offers solid advice on looking at what's happening now, rather than what's happened in the past, when relevant, and guided me to understanding what I could do myself to reconcile with past events. I felt very safe with Deana, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
Amazing counselor! Honestly kind and really tries her best to just hear you and help you move forward.
Deana is great and seems to understand what I am needing from this experience.
She is very thoughtful, on-time and wonderful to work with. She understands my situation well.
Deanna is absolutely the best. She not only listens without judgment, but she's open-minded enough to give objective hypotheses on how else I can interpret a stressful and complex situation, and is always happy to offer additional resources. She's regularly available for phone sessions, and very obviously concerned for the well-being of those that she speak to. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
She is very knowledgeable and seems to convey it in a very appropriate way
She is very effective in all aspects and I look forward to more sessions with her which eventually will help me move forward to a new journey.
I trust her guidance and counselling
Deana is to the point, goal oriented and "cuts the crap". She helped me understand how my brain is wired and why I am feeling the way I am feeling, but she went beyond that helping me to change my actions and thus feelings. She is always optimistic, listening and made things very concrete and actionable. It's a pleasure to work with her!
I am very happy to have Deana as my counsellor. I feel she gets me and my reasons for needing counseling.
I think she has thought me a lot about myself and how I need to look after my side of things. I have found this a very convenient way of doing counseling that really works for me. Great flexibility and availability and I, after trying a few counsellors in my time would say that Deana has been the only one who challenged my thinking and behaviour. I've definitely gained from this experience immensely and would highly recommend Deana. Vanessa
Deana is an insightful and compassionate person, who has helped more than I could have believed. A credit to her field.
Deana is very easy to talk to. She's very down to earth and incredibly insightful. Her perspective has been extremely helpful in dealing with some issues I'd been experiencing.
Deana has been helping me deal with a lot of family and confidence issues. She has been very kind and has made me feel understood. I really feel I can tell her anything (I can even tell her when what she says generates an adverse reaction in me). I am very thankful for her.
Deana has validated some of the feelings that I have been having that I thought were out of line. I have had a lot of trauma in my life and she is helping me resolve it one question at a time.
I have been talking to Deana for a short time and she seems very understanding and patient. She always responds to my emails in good time and never seems to have a day off. I am grateful to be able to work with her.
