Hello!!! My name is DeAnna Christian. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with a supervisor designation. I have been independently licensed in the state of Ohio since 2004. I got into the social work field because I wanted to make a difference in a professional capacity. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including ADHD, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, drug addiction, psychosis, and PTSD. I have been a foster parent and adopted children, I have had family members with mental health issues, and am a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) .
My counseling style is warm and genuine. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I treat you as a person not a diagnosis. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and dialectical behavioral therapy. I will meet each client where they are at and tailor treatment to meet their needs.
It is not easy to reach out for help. It is not always easy to trust. I am here to support you and guide you.
I look forward to working with you!

A very grounded therapist who not only has a series of tools under their belt, but also willing to research and network in order to help you find a solution to the things you're struggling with.
From someone who has had both good and crappy therapists over the years, DeAnna stands out as a fantastic resource.
DeAnna is warm and welcoming. She has taken the time to get to know us and has given us many tools to heal ourselves and our relationship.
