Licensed Clinical Social Worker

         Hi my name is Deanna Potts

Like a lot of you, my career path has been varied as I paused here and there, trying on jobs and making adjustments. Life has a way of giving us the experience we need to enter into the experiences we are yet to have! About 10 years ago, my life lead me to take my full turn into the helping field and pursue my Masters of Science in Social Work at University of Texas, Arlington. 

 

Along the way I gained my licensure as a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC), and moved through my Life Coaching Certification to my intentional summit of Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Now, I combine it all – life, training, education, and experience to help through life coaching and therapy. And, I absolutely love what I do.

One of my areas focus is working with female-identified persons ages 20's - 60's that are struggling with body image, self esteem, and/or sexual issues (including orientation, expression, gender identity, desires, etc.) that may stem from being overweight, underweight, disabilities (mental or physical), gender dysphoria, sexual trauma, struggling/abusive relationships, recent break-up/divorce, religious upbringing or anything that has made you feel “less than” or “not enough”. I have personal and professional experience with these issues and am ready to help you and your partner(s) realize your best hopes for your future and the life that you really want.

Areas of focus:

  • Self Esteem & Issues​​ that may stem from:

    • overweight, underweight, disabilities, gender dysphoria, sexual trauma​ abusive relationships, loss of relationships, religious injuries, etc.​​

  • Trauma

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Substance Misuse

  • Gender Identity and Expression

  • Trans inclusive

  • Sexual orientation and expression

  • Polyamory; Throuples & Moresomes

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, former Community Health Worker, and Certified Life Coach, my background includes vast and varied training and experience.  I specialize in helping you realize and achieve the goals you set for yourself using a combination of sex education, coaching, and Solution Focused Therapy.

All genders, orientations, religions, lifestyles, relationship configurations, and races are welcomed, embraced and celebrated. I thoroughly enjoy helping you find the answers within yourself through having deep conversations about what you really want to achieve in your life and using the resources you already have to make your dreams and goals a reality.

                              Warmly,

                              Deanna
