About Me

Darleena Cozzo , is a licensed professional counselor in.Norfolk Virginia who has over who has over 28 years of experience in the social services field. Darleena's style is warm and professional and, at the same time, passionate and committed to you and your relationships. Darleena focuses on personal and spiritual growth to over-come the fears, regrets, and excuses that keep us stuck, depressed, anxious and unable to ACT.
Many of us have made choices based on fear instead of purpose and hope.
As a result , we live lives that we never intended for ourselves. Our relationships, our families, our careers, our lifestyles are very unsatisfying, at best, and damaging and crippling at worst. This marginal existence is not what you intended; nor was it intended for you . You were meant for MORE; more gratitude, more love, more happiness, more peace. Come see me and lets beginning the Passage of Healing.
Choosing to come to counseling is a major decision. You need to believe the counselor you're working with is competent, kind and compassionate and can provide a space where healing and change can be fostered. I work with a diverse population of clients with a wide range of needs. Together, we address relational conflict, miscommunication, sexual struggles, infidelity, anxiety, and depression, to name a few.
I integrate the Gottman Method, a researched based mythology, helps couples rebuild and fortify their relationships creating a climate of trust and understanding allowing for greater intimacy between partners.

Darleena is a fantastic counselor. I have trouble opening up to people over the past decade and she is one of two counselors I have felt comfortable with.

I highly, highly recommend her!

I’m really grateful for Darleena in the ways she has helped me so far. She listens to me and makes me see things in a different perspective - which makes the situation I’m dealing with easier to deal with. She also supports me in sending me some additional great resources which is really helpful!
