Deanna loves working with kids by empowering them to take ownership over their goals while providing guidance to reach those goals. She understands the power of parent partnership to make the most impact for children. Deanna has experience creating individualized behavior plans to reinforce desired behaviors to promote growth. She thrives to support families in reaching their goals by understanding the family’s needs before creating systems of support specific to the child’s needs.
