Meet 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.
With her vast background through education and professional experience, Murphy is now transitioning into her own private counseling practice. While she does not refuse any potential client, her primary targets are women, specifically African American women. Murphy sees Black women as the least understood and most underserved demographic. According to Murphy, “You cannot treat what you do not understand.” Murphy is working, therefore, to own a one-stop-shop for women of color—a holistic center that offers healing from the inside out.
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.
