About me

Hi my name is Debbie and thank you for looking at my profile. I am a warm and supportive therapist. I believe that therapy helps people find their "true" self - the person they really are and were before negative things made them think they were something else. I work together with clients to make goals for therapy and believe that the client is the expert on themselves and that is why they need to be listened to. It is an honor and privilege for a client to trust me . I am good listener and might even throw in some humor, as appropriate. I believe that everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect and the relationship the client and therapist have is of utmost importance.

I hold a Master of Science degree from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker in Mississippi. I have experience with anxiety, depression, abuse, neglect, trauma, as well as adoption, foster care, parenting, and blended families.

Debbie is an amazing person to work with! I am so incredibly blessed to have her. She has helped me to have so many breakthroughs and clarity in my life throughout our time. She listens carefully, makes you feel important, never judges you especially if you have a good cry, and truly cares for your well being and what you truly want in life. I always get very excited and look forward to seeing her every week. Thank you so much, you are out here making an impact on peoples lives and helping create a healthy mentality for society.
