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, family of origin issues, 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 is great. She listens to what I say, gives me strong feedback and advice and suggestions to better my situation.

Debbie has been very supportive during this time. I’m worried about my senior blind dog having cancer. She’s been very understanding. She is very kind. She is insightful. I’m happy with her being my therapist.

She gives me a maternal feel. She's very understanding. Living in the UK and her being from US though the signal with live calls aren't always best

Debbie has given me wonderful and practical advice, having demystified therapy and turning it into something very functional for myself. Highly adaptable.
