About me

Hello, I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina and have a genuine desire to help anyone struggling with life demands, trauma, anxiety, and grief related to loss of any kind. After 10+ years experience in the world of grief and loss, this has allowed me to treat those with complicated grief, additional stressors, depression and adjustment disorder. My experience also includes counseling and coaching those with physical disabilities. My counseling approach is person centered, offering compassion, guidance, and techniques to help in your journey towards finding meaning and purpose in life again. My desire is to walk this journey with you without getting lost in it. Although my approach is compassionate and non-judgmental, I am prepared to challenge and empower you to a better life.
I look forward to meeting and working with you!

Deb is an incredible listener and a caring therapist. I’m really grateful to have found her while I’m grieving. It is obvious that she is an expert in grief therapy, and I feel very supported by her.

Dr fritts is great but better help has a bad video set up.

I have had two sessions with better help and both were either greatly delayed or became impossible to complete because of video problems. Better help has not connected on the issues yet I have lost time, and by association, money because the sessions, not therapists, were so poor.

I’ve had two sessions with Deborah so far. I feel encouraged after our session and her advice has been helpful to me. I feel comfortable around her. I look forward to continuing therapy with her!

Deborah became my therapist about 2 weeks ago and have really enjoyed talking to Her.. She listens, and offers good resolutions. She checks on Me in between sessions and has proved me " homework" to make sure I'm on track. Really appreciate Her.

I reached out for online therapy when I hit rock bottom. I specifically chose Deborah for her skill sets (grief, loss of sense of self, trauma). It has been one of the best decisions I've made. Deborah is responsive, experienced, caring, and she has helped me tremendously. I whole heartedly recommend her for anyone struggling with these issues.

Deborah is patient, easy to talk with and calming. She offers very consoling words and great suggestions. She sends uplifting messages and quotes that are truly inspiring. She makes a great effort to show she cares about me and what I'm sharing. I feel a huge sense of support when speaking with her.

Deborah has been great. She's super supportive and responds to me daily and my journal entries. She's a very calming presence which I need right now. In this survey it asked me if she responds in a timely manner and I accidentally hit strongly disagree and there was not easy to fix it. That answer is wrong I have no complaints about the level of care I am receiving from her.

I've only had two sessions, but my counselor does listen and is easy to talk to. I believe I will benefit from the time I work with Deborah Fritts.
