About Me

Welcome! My name is Debbie and I am a licensed professional therapist. I have been in practice for 5 years and am currently in private practice in Delaware. I graduated with my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Seton Hall University in 2014. I have worked with adults and children in both individual and group settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, stress and anxiety, grief and loss, coping with life changes, relationship issues, OCD and ADHD. My style of counseling is warm, interactive and compassionate. I consider my sessions a "no judgement" zone. I strive to create a trusted rapport with my clients and feel that a successful therapeutic relationship is based on mutual respect. While my therapeutic approach combines Cognitive Behavioral, Humanistic and Solution Focused therapy, I will tailor my approach to meet your personal needs. I believe that change happens when a person is ready to embrace it. It is a brave step to seek counseling and I am here to support you through this journey of self discovery.
Outside of my professional life, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 3 grown children. My hobbies include reading, needlepoint, knitting hats for the NICU and when time allows, a good "binge watch" on Netflix!
I look forward to working with you!

Debra supported me through a very difficult and anxious time. Our weekly sessions were the motivation I needed to get me through the life challenge my partner and I were facing. With Debra I was able to express myself, be heard and most importantly have my feelings validated. I was able to vent and clear my mind, ready to take on another week. Debra kept up with my situation and remembered key points. I was so grateful to have Debra available in between sessions if I needed her. I felt so comfortable sharing my thoughts and concerns. We were able to delve deeper into other issues impacting my mental health. I was excited to tell Debra our good news which eventuated at the end of a hard and long wait. When life throws me another challenge I will reach out to Debra for support.

Debra is a fantastic counsellor, I felt I had fantastic support while working through some issues from my childhood. I always felt comfortable and not pressured to talk through so many things that I had pushed to the back of my mind. I really appreciated her checking in every so often between sessions. I’ll always be grateful to have had the support she provided through an immense time of change in my life.
I would highly recommend her.
