Hello! I'm Dr. Michelle Deering, Founder & CEO of Deering Psychological Services PLLC which is based in the Triangle Area of North Carolina. I am here to guide you through the complex and difficult matters of life and as a scholar-athlete. I truly care about my clients' well-being and am committed to providing you with personalized counseling and psychological services.


For over 20 years, I have provided a number of specialized therapeutic services (e.g. EMDR -- Eye Movement & Desensitization Reprocessing and EvTFT -- Evolving Thought Field Therapy) to address your mental health and athletic performance needs of late-adolescents  (> 17 years old), young adults, and adults. Your overall well-being is my number one priority. My commitment is to partner with you as you work through whatever obstacles you're facing so that you can reach your personal and performance goals.


As a Brown University graduate (BA, Biology) & Rutgers University alum (Ed.D, Counseling Psychology), I combine my science and social science background to treat the "whole" you. As a former high school varsity & collegiate athlete, I understand your needs.


I am not only licensed (in NJ & NC) as a Psychologist but I am also nationally Board Certified as a Sport Psychologist through the American Board of Sport Psychology.


Set up an initial (fee-based) consultation with me so that we can get started. I look forward to working with you.
