About me

Hi! And welcome! Congratulations on taking the courageous first step toward improving your life by reaching out and sharing information about yourself! I understand counseling as a journey where I meet you where YOU ARE AT (mentally and emotionally) and then have the privilege of traveling with you on your journey of self-discovery. I use my skills to assist on the rocky patches in the road, and am ALWAYS encouraging, confirming, and celebrating YOUR SUCCESS. I create a space for you that is confidential, accepting, and non-judgmental.

I have a Ph. D. in Mental Health Counseling and am currently a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of North Carolina. I also have a sub-specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have over 20 years of counseling experience, working in private and non-profit organizations, helping children, teens, and adults of all ages. The counseling modalities I use are Adlerian, Solution Focused therapy, Cognitive Behavioral techniques, and a traumagenic approach. Issues for which I have provided therapy include: childhood abuse; alcohol abuse; codependency; grief and loss; adult ADD; negotiating stressful life transitions, dealing with verbal aggression; conflict resolution; decision making; effective parenting skills; stressful family environments; and developing effective and lasting communication skills. I have also helped some of my clients resolve depression and anxiety which often are associated with the aforementioned issues.

My availability is currently Monday through Thursday with 3 sessions on l Fridays. All appointments are after 12:00pm.
Sometimes my schedule will vary if I have personal matter that I have to take care of.

I’ve come such a long way, thanks to Dr. Gipple. Her expertise, compassion and really breaking down everything to where I can understand the why and the what, as well as the tools to cope or get better are wonderful. She’s caring and warm and I wish I had her years ago. I highly recommend Deborah!

Dr. Gipple is the kindest lady! She really has helped me out tremendously at a point in my life when I was so down on myself. She never judged me and always made me feel understood. Her great attitude allowed me to feel comfortable enough to open up. I am very glad I gave therapy a chance because I am a better person for it and I'm excited about my future! Thank you Dr. Gipple for always encouraging me and being so honest and caring. I am grateful to have had you as my therapist. :)
