Deborah Wood

(MA, LCP)

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 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.

Deborah is someone who you can completely open up to. She is so easy-going and real with you so you know that her words are genuine. That kind of authenticity is so hard to come by in my day-to-day life. It's been so refreshing to have that honesty in my support system. I would highly recommend Deborah to anyone looking for a professional, approachable advocate. She's amazing!

Deborah is an excellent therapist. In just a few sessions, she helped me identify behaviors that weren't supporting my goals and gave me alternate approaches to try. She's been very helpful, supportive and thoughtful. She's helped me to feel hopeful, and I'm so glad I was able to connect with her.

Deborah gave me tools to help with my over drinking in our first session. She made me aware of things I would have never realized. I feel so supported by her. It’s so nice to have someone checking in on me and listening to me when I need without judgement. I feel like I’m going where I need to go thanks to Deborah.

Felt very at home with Deb and we addressed my issues and found solutions within a few weeks. We connected instantly and she was spot on with all of her observations and advice. Hoping if I ever need her again I'll be able to reconnect.
