I am licensed in Louisiana and earned my Masters in Clinical Mental Health. I have worked as a school counselor and have over 28 years in education. I have over 4 years of professional counseling work experience helping clients with stress and anxiety, parenting issues, & depression. I approach counseling from a cognitive-behavioral perspective in that patterns of thoughts and actions are explored in order to better understand and address concerns. I believe in treating everyone with respect, and facilitating a safe atmosphere to explore concerns. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

My therapist Ms. Deborah is very attentive during sessions and she offers Great insight and spiritual knowledge on what I'm going through, She extends exercises outside of the therapy appts that allow me time and techniques to process the discussion we previously had. I find that it is definitely helping and I love her.

Deborah is very understanding and gracious. She asks questions that hold me accountable, but without judgement. Deborah has shown me how to not beat myself up, yet suggest accountable and doable exercises to help me move forward. I appreciate her!

Deborah Alexander is a great therapist. She is a great listener and is really good at catching patterns and making connections that you wouldn’t be able to make on your own.

Deborah is a wonderful therapist who balances being supportive with pushing my personal “challenge line”. My partner and I have seen active changes in the way I handle my anxiety in the weeks I have been seeing her. I highly recommend working with her!

I believe Mrs. Deborah is doing an excellent job. I was able to finally express the discomfort in my life and was able to release all that bothered me.
