About me

I am a certified licensed therapist in two states with over thirty years of experience. I received my degree from Antioch University Seattle and have worked with adults in a variety of settings throughout my career. I, particularly, specialize in working with women. I employ a person-centered approach based on respect, knowledge, and empowerment.

Finding the right therapist is not easy. Often times a degree or years of experience can be irrelevant as it relates to a successful therapeutic connection. I believe in a counseling session an individual needs to feel comfortable, heard, and valued by a therapist. I can offer someone these integral pieces as a therapist, as well as, genuinely caring about the individual's experiences.

Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding how I work, availability, etc. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Deborah Wood. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Deb is the best. She is kind and listens intently. I always feel heard and Deb meets me with nothing but compassion. When I signed up for BetterHelp, I felt lost and frustrated, my relationship was on the rocks, and I didn't know how to navigate my emotions. Deb and I have worked through these issues (and more) together and with her help I have gained more clarity and calmness in my life. I have a stronger sense of self and have learned to trust my intuition. I appreciate Deb and her infinite wisdom!

Deb is amazing. She listens to me and she gives me constructive ways to work through my issues. Her compassion feels like it is never ending, but she is also able to steer me toward solutions and away from wallowing.

Deborah makes it very comfortable to talk to her and offers good feed back. She helped me through a rough time in my life.

Deb has been instrumental in my healing. She is very clear about her treatment plan and asks all the right questions to help me lead myself in the right direction. I feel grateful to have been matched with her. She's essentially the reason I stuck with therapy.
