About

I enjoy working with individuals with Bipolar Disorder to help them develop a treatment plan and to provide useful education about the disorder. Accurate information is critical in developing acceptance of the disorder and fighting stigma. Regarding infidelity, I work to help the patient(s) heal from the trauma and heartbreak of infidelity. Managing anger or obsessive thoughts, learning to be vulnerable again, and developing forgiveness are important goals for the betrayed spouse, whether separating or reconciling. Rebuilding trust, adhering to total honesty (the hallmark of healing), and being behaviorally accountable are tasks that I help the straying spouse develop.
I have published a book: What Happens After Shattered? Finding Hope and Healing After Infidelity. This is a Christian based self-help book for individual betrayed spouses, couples wishing to reconcile after an affair, and for mental health professionals desiring to help others with the trauma of infidelity.

Deanna Sims's Groups

Bipolar Group Therapy

Come join those diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder receive empathy, education, and guidance in a safe, unconditionally supportive environment. Group sessions help patients identify depression and mania symptoms, reduce shame and stigma, and maintain specific treatment goals. Group sessions also help patients improve coping skills and understand how Bipolar Disorder impacts the self and interpersonal relationships. The Bipolor group was established in 2007 and is currently meeting. A one time initial evaluation is required for group participation. This group is currently meeting via ZOOM during the COVID-19 pandemic.
