About Me

Deborah Cielo, LCSW 

As a Licensed Therapist, with over 10 years of experience, I have worked with many clients to navigate some of the different struggles in their lives. Since childhood, I have had a passion for helping others and, today, love it when clients learn to feel empowered and more positive about themselves and their lives. With an empathetic, conversational approach, I explore behaviors, solutions and goals with clients. I have worked with clients of all ages and in a variety of settings. 

I am originally from Philadelphia, PA, but was raised in Richmond, VA. I moved to North Carolina in 2017 and immediately fell in love with the area. However, I will always be an Eagles fan! For self-care, I engage in a variety of hobbies; going out to different restaurants, taking short hikes, listening to music, painting, DIY crafts, and watching or reading anything nerd-related (Star Wars, Marvel/DC, Anime, etc..)

Education & Credentials 

I believe there’s always room to become an even better-informed therapist, so I regularly participate in continued education and trainings.
