My area of expertise includes substance abuse; depression; anxiety; anger management; communication challenges; elderly care; relationship conflicts; goal planning; blended family challenges; and parenting.

In my 3 sessions so far, Debbie has provided frank and direct advice and asked questions that made me realize how I need to change my life and take better care of myself. She’s been awesome!

Written by A.B. on Feb 23, 2022 after therapy with Debbie for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I was not always sure about participating in over the phone therapy services. I preferred live chat. I had one phone session with Debbie and I was very pleased. She has a nice personality and knows just how to ease conversation so that you feel your most comfortable. She even checks in regularly outside of scheduled therapy time to check in. I can message her and she gets back to me in a timely manner. She’s awesome!
