Director of Student Counseling Services/Counselor


Deena Crawford, L.C.S.W., is the director of the University of Southern Mississippi’s Student Counseling Services since 2008.  Along with administration responsibilities, she continues to provide counseling for students.    As students struggle with becoming more independent and learning to adjust to change, she likes to work beside them as they develop into early adulthood.  Deena also really enjoys helping students improve their relationships with self and others.    In addition, she has extensive training in working with people who struggle with eating disorders, sexual trauma, and addiction.  Deena believes in trusting the process of growth and living a life you love.
