My name is Debbie Vessels. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Indiana. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN and my Master's from Indiana University/Purdue University (IUPUI) in Indianapolis, IN. I have experience in many different settings such as inpatient, hospital, college, outpatient community health, private practice and hospice. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse and difficulty adjusting to changes in life.
I am a firm believer in mind over mood. I believe our thoughts dictate how we feel, act and respond. As such, I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy to assist with identifying irrational thought patterns and how we can change them into something more positive. I also utilize strengths perspective. So many times an individual does not realize they have strengths so they are not utilized to make change. I rely on motivational interviewing and solutions focused as well.
I'm glad you have reached out and I'm ready to help!

Loved the experience with her.
Only wish it'd have gone longer. But financial pressure was why I had to quit. Because of corona virus situation the funding has been cut.
Nevertheless. She was a delight and heard me out. Thanks a lot for everything Debbie ❤️
Debbie has helped me tremendously in thinking more clear. After each session I can confidently say my stress level is much less.
Enjoyed our first session!
Debbie has been a great help to me in many ways. I have been to a few other therapists before but none have tackled my problems the way she has and that technique has given me freedom and a new way to live my life. Thank you!
Debbie has been so patient and understanding.
