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!

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 was great to work with and was very helpful in giving options and ways to work through the grief associated with losing a close friend of mine. I feel that I was able to work through this grief in a healthy way with the help of Debbie.
