About Me

I am a LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) in Texas. I have worked with families and adults in multiple capacities extensively with a focus on family dynamics, parenting relationships, loss and grief and women's issues to name a few. I have a strong belief that we are in a constant state of change and adaptation in life and the secret is to realize and own our personal power that we each have within us. My goal in working with clients is to help empower them. I lean heavily on client centered, cognitive behavioral and solution focused therapy approaches in looking at what has brought you to this place and how to reach where you want to go from here.
Personal Peace is accomplished through balance, boundaries and beginnings. I look forward to helping you begin this next step of your journey.

Debbie is so amazing. No matter what you are going through, Debbie is always there to listen and give such great advice. What is most important to me, is that Debbie genuinely cares about what I am experiencing and how I feel. I would recommend Debbie to any and everyone! Debbie has helped me in so many ways and I am looking forward to continuing therapy with her. I can’t thank you enough Debbie!

This is my first time working directly with a therapist and it has been wonderful. I appreciate the insight and suggestions for way to help improve my situation. It’s nice to have someone to reach out to and having immediately ‘clicked’ with Debbie, it has made the experience so much more enjoyable and beneficial than I thought it would be.

Debbie is great! I have been meeting with her weekly via video once a week for a couple months now, and always feel listened to, supported, and that she truly cares. Debbie brings empathy, wisdom, humor, and great feedback to our sessions. She gives great advice when I ask for it. I really appreciate her!

Are you a dad struggling with the weight of marriage and kids? Does your anger sometimes flare up on you? If you answered yes and are looking for help then look no further than Debbie. She is kind, considerate, and able to provide you with the guidance to get you on track to a better you!

After just a few sessions I have received tremendous support from Deborah. She is insightful and offers concrete advice in terms of changing perspectives and behaviors. She gives homework! A great combination of understanding, empathy, and practical tools. One of the best therapists I've ever had.

Deborah is compassionate, thoughtful and upfront. It was clear from the start that she cared about the therapist relationship and every session, she listened deeply. She asked helpful, tough questions and helped me reframe meaningfully, even in a short time. I am very appreciative of the time I spent working with Debbie.

From the first minute of our first session, Debbie 100% understood where I'm at and what type of support I need. She is able to put my thoughts and worries into words and present them to me in a way that is absolutely accurate and give me the tools to make my own decision about how to move forward. Debbie is an absolute lifesaver and I am so grateful to have been connected to her.
