Debbie McCown-Perkins

LCSW

About Me

I am an Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed in Colorado. I have a BS degree in PSychology and a masters in Social Work from Walla Walla University. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, in a non-judgemental atmosphere. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, solution-focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Debbie listens patiently and in a non-judgemental way. She gently offers opinions (which I appreciate) and asks pertinent questions to guide self reflection, which is key to uncovering motivations. I'm enjoying our sessions.

Written by C.H. on May 24, 2022 after therapy with Debbie for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes

I really felt comfortable with Debbie and even though I've had alot of Big changes in my life over the last 2 years, she helped me understand that my biggest problem that I have is that I am a passive personality.Deb gave me homework that helped me see different ways to express what my needs and desires are without being a pushover for everyone to walk over.

I did not participate in any therapy sessions. I actually didn’t even show up to our scheduled appointment. And she continued to reach out to me to make sure that I was OK. I really really appreciated her efforts because I had Covid and it is nice to know that she cared enough to check on me.

Debbie is patient and kind, she helps me navigate my feelings and emotions. Debbie has helped me through some things that I would have not been able to do alone.

Debbie is phenomenal. She is caring, kind, knowledgeable, supportive and nonjudgmental. She approaches everything from an open point of view and considers all aspects. She has helped me through some big things this year, and continues to support me every step of the way. I am so very grateful for her.

Debbie is wise, sweet, understanding, and encouraging whilst also being realistic and professional. She helps to ground me when I’m anxious or need validation. She helped me overcome an extremely hard obstacle. I would highly recommend her!

I am in my second week and I have found it to be very helpful and comforting to have a safe place to talk about my mental health. Debbie made me feel at ease right away.

Written by T.A. on Jul 09, 2021 after therapy with Debbie for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Debbie is skilled in her profession, but she also possesses qualities I've felt so many other therapists lack. Kind, gentle, empathetic, sympathetic, understanding, relatable. I would recommend anyone to Debbie. Especially if you're over sensitive and emotional, like I am =D

Debbie was supportive, understanding and non-judgmental and offered realistic solutions to issues that could be sustained and developed. She was always prompt in replying or scheduling sessions, and always on time for our chats. Talking to her felt natural and she has a way of putting you at ease and letting you talk without asking leading questions. She helped me put down goals and have realistic expectations from my interactions. Thanks!

She is very understanding and supportive and helps me keep my life on track to feel better and gives me strategies that I can manage stressful events in my life. I couldn’t recommend her enough.

I’ve never felt so at ease to talk about fragile subjects with someone so quickly. We’ve had internet and video troubles but that’s not made me panic. She handles those situations well. We talk across different time zones easily. She’s gentle.

Work with me!
