About Me

Hello, I want to thank you for taking the first step in seeking to improve your life. Sometimes it is difficult to reach out for help and you have shown courage by doing so.

I am a Licensed Clinical Therapist in Illinois. I have worked for 28 years mostly with children and their parents to strengthen their family through improving their communication, developing an understanding of other viewpoints, expressing honest emotions and conflict resolution. I have also worked with individuals going through divorce, grieving a loved ones passing, suffering from trauma or facing those life events that are so difficult to overcome alone. I believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and compassion. I also believe everyone is unique and therefore will work best with an intervention tailored specifically to them. Together we will find the approach or approaches that works best for you.

Thank you again for taking the first step. If you are ready to take the next one I am here to help you.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Debbi

Debbi really remembers the details of my life more than any of my therapists in the past. Something about her sense of humor and honesty in her perspective makes it VERY easy to open up to her. She is genuinely someone who I feel like is rooting for me in life, and above all else, she prioritizes my treatment

Debbi has been awesome, and seems to be a perfect fit with the exact expertise I needed to help me with the issues that I have been dealing with. I look forward to the future, and to working with Debbi on my path to better mental health.

In the months I've worked with Debbi I've grown and learned to love myself. I've learn to approach things in my life head on and not hide from them. I've moved myself in out of a place where I was hidden from everyone to place where i have support and friend I love and they love me back. Given me a power and control over my life i didn't know i still had.

I'm grateful for the support I'm receiving from Debbi Little through this difficult chapter of legally ending my marriage. Debbi is compassionate and has a lot of life experience to draw upon. Her openness to sharing details of how she manages her relationships and finances is informing how I'm reconsidering mine.

Within a short period of time, Debbi has completely created a safe welcoming space to allow me to air out my thoughts. For that I am very grateful.

I appreciate Debbi because she REALLY LISTENS to me and doesn't downplay how I feel. While being objective and professional, as I need her to be, she is also very reassuring, comforting and calming, which I am thankful for. Thanks Debbi!!!

Debbi is a highly qualified, solution driven therapist that was extremely helpful to me. I feel that if you are fortunate enough to be matched with her, then you will be very happy with her as a therapist and she will help you get where you need to go.

Work with me!
