I am an LCSW therapist licensed in Kentucky with over 5 years of experience working as a psycho counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, mindfulness, motivational-interview, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

She has been amazing with me. She keeps me focused and helps me work through my problems as they come up and my past issues as well. She acknowledges my feelings and encourages me through them. I've really come to look forward to my therapy sessions as it's the only time I feel heard. She is wonderful and I am happy I have found a good therapist for myself.

Debra has helped me better understand myself and how my brain works. Struggling with ADD and focusing, she has equipped me with ways to help me in my every day. Talking with Debra, she also began asking me questions that helped me think more about myself in ways I never did before. Validating and caring for myself.
