Hello, my name is Deborah but most people call me Debbie. I have been a Professional Counselor for 20 years and have had the opportunity to work with many interesting people so far. One of the things that is very important to me is our professional relationship. Together we will work on building trust and respect for one another so the environment is one where you feel completely safe sharing any thoughts, feelings, or ideas that you have. I will be on this journey with you, guiding you and supporting you the whole way. The goal is for you to get to that place where you have the skills, tools and thoughts to help you get to where you want to be and make your life as fulfilling as you choose. Everyone is unique and that is part of the beauty of the process, no person is like you and every thought you have is yours and any feeling is one that you can be comfortable owning. We will work at a pace that you are comfortable with and you will be challenged and given HW if this something that helps. To avoid being overwhelmed, we will be organizing each issue and tackling each bit at a time until pieces of the puzzle begin to start fitting together.
I have experience working with family issues, depression, anxiety, panic, self-esteem, marital difficulties, loneliness, abandonment, trust, behavioral issues and more. I want you to know that what you say and feel is very important and you deserve to be heard, you matter. You also deserve to have that life you want. I can give you tools to work with and I can help you use them as needed for everyday life. I am eclectic in that I use different treatment modalities as needed. I may use Client Centered and then move to Behavioral Therapy and then on to Cognitive Restructuring as needed and it all comes down to what works best for you and where we are in the process. As we move forward, we will continue to work on the next hurdle until the road becomes more manageable. Every road has bumps along the way but it is how you learn to control the bumps that makes you in control of the ride. Life is YOUR journey and YOU will be in the driver’s seat. You can do this. I look forward to meeting you!

I love that Deborah respects my way of thinking and I can fully trust her knowing that she won't judge me on anything I say. I'm very comfortable sharing with her, something that I couldn't find in my previous therapists.

She utilizes her experience to be supportive and helpful. She’s helped me alleviate guilt, and she supports me to make decisions to help me feel happier.

We are focusing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which is a very interesting thought process! Debbie really understands how to present CBT and has given me great tools to learn how to use it.

Deborah has been the perfect fit for me. Her ability to hear and acknowledge me and to provide me with useful tools in a kind and helpful manner, has assisted me in my journey to a more peaceful life. She has helped me to see issues from others' perspectives and to be better at letting go of hurt, anger and worry. I am truly grateful for Debbie and have deep respect for the work she does for others.

This is the longest I’ve ever gone to a therapist. Normally I hang in there two or three sessions. I have been with Deborah four months which says something about her. I trust Her, and I trust her advice.
