Deborah Beard


About Me

My name is Deborah Beard. I am trained in Marriage & Family Therapy and have served as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor for over 25 years. I graduated in 1996 with a Masters degree in Science: Family Therapy from Friends University in Wichita, Kansas. My previous work experience as a Human Resource Manager and a Professor of Education bring relatable life skill experiences into each of my sessions. I have served as a counselor in both public and private mental health agencies, primarily for those seeking help with depression,
anxiety, mood disorders, trauma and abuse recovery, relationships, and parenting skills.

Any client who has the courage to seek counseling is someone worth celebrating. With gentleness and warmth, I try to focus on each of my clients' strengths to help them in the areas they desire to change. I utilize counseling tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Systemic Therapy as appropriate. Each client's faith and moral values are recognized as a wonderful foundation for their desired growth. I look forward to meeting you!

Written by B.R. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Deborah for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Deborah is really good at understanding my problems and the underlying issues that are keeping me from living a better life. She is helping me understand more about my mind and my role as a parent/husband, and she is truly a fun person to talk to. I'm grateful for her expertise and her being so open minded.
