Kaleo Counseling, PLLC

Everyone can benefit from taking time to intentionally reflect on their life, which often leads to developing a renewed sense of purpose and accomplishing new goals. None of us are immune to hardship or pain, and it definitely takes a leap of faith to reach out for support. I feel blessed to be able to walk along side others during these times.

Our Mission

What are you called to?

The word Kaleo in Greek means "to call" or "to give name to." I have felt from the beginning of my career counseling is my calling. The belief we all have a unique purpose is an integral part of my approach in counseling. I strive to help people give a name to what they're dealing with, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their potential. 

The mission of all who work with Kaleo Counseling, PLLC will be to use our individual, God given gifts to minister to others... facilitating healing, instilling hope, and empowering individuals, couples or families to gain a sense of strength and peace from hardships they encounter.

Pre-marital Counseling 

Marriage Counseling

Scripture identifies the marriage as the foundation for the family, and the family as the building block of society. My approach emphasizes strong marriages being a key to resolving multiple issues and I encourage family involvement in treatment whenever appropriate.

At the same time, I recognize there is real pain from broken marriages and families and my heart desires to offer love and acceptance to those in any situation, while working to restore faith in God's perfect plan for marriage. 


Behavior Issues

Child/Adolescent Peer Issues

Family Conflict

Families affected by addiction

Any family can benefit from intentional time together focused on resolving areas of obvious concern or simply identifying ways they would like to improve family relationships to enhance their impact on their little part of the world. Our family is our legacy, and with all the busyness in today's world, it is more important than ever to take the time to ensure our legacy is strong.

Diedre K. Breeden, LCMHCS

Owner, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor

I have been in the mental health field for over nine years, starting with a career in community support, which allowed me the opportunity to meet people where they were...figuratively and literally. Eventually, I felt led to move into clinical work, and in April of 2012, graduated with honors from Liberty University's Professional Counseling Program. 
My personal journey has led me to pursue my own private practice, and I now have a little place to call mine in Macon County, NC. My heart is to serve the people of western NC which has always been, and will always be my home.
