Ms Debbie rules. She gave me my life back

Debbie is wonderful to talk to. Rather than just listen and ask me how I feel, she gives me practical life advice and coping techniques that truly work! She is skilled at her craft and I’m grateful I found her!

Great therapist. No nonsense, right to the point, will tell you what you need to hear whether you like it or not!

I highly recommend Debra Whatley as a therapist who deals with addiction or her other areas of expertise. She has helped me immensely in just a matter of a couple weeks! She provides real time, immediate feedback and genuinely helpful skills that can be incorporated immediately. After years as a therapist, it’s apparent that she has an arsenal of tools to share in her toolkit! I’ve seen other therapists, but have benefited more in the last 3 weeks than I have in months with others. Can’t say enough good things!
