    Dr. DeAnna Murphy


    Dr. DeAnna C. Murphy is described by her industry peers as bold, optimistic, and self-driven. A native of Red Springs, North Carolina, Murphy has dedicated nearly two decades of her life researching and serving dually-diagnosed populations: mental health and substance abuse. Working alongside disadvantaged minorities, she gained insight as to how to apply critical theories to current problems.

    Professionally, she attained licensure as a professional counselor, a clinical addictions specialist, a
    National Board Certified Counselor, and a trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapist.


    Spring, 2018 Murphy released her first children’s book, Rayne and the Yellow Dress, part of a series titled Ebony Drive. The series was created as a pathway for parents and educators to discuss topics of diversity such as colorism, hair texture, and body image with children in the black community.
