About me

If there’s something going on in your life right now that’s making you unhappy, or stressed, I can help.

We all have times in our lives when there are challenges, but when we begin to feel overwhelmed and like we're stuck, reaching out for professional help can really make a difference. There’s no need to keep feeling unhappy or unfulfilled when there's a better way. Whatever it is that’s on your mind, therapy can help.

I have over 10 years of experience helping my clients get past temporary challenges, and move forward in their lives in a positive way. Clients often tell me after a few sessions that they feel like a burden has been lifted.

Let me help you to identify areas in your life that might be out of balance, and get you feeling back on track and better than ever. I'd love to hear what's going on, and we can get started right away.

Debra is an extremely gifted listener and counselor. I am always amazed at what she can extract from my ramblings. Within these ramblings contain a thread that leads to my key issues that I really need to deal with. The thread always felt like a tangled mess but now I see it as a simple through-line that is manageable. I highly recommend her. She has helped me in every aspect of my life.

Debra is understanding, a wonderful listener, and completely free of judgement. She’s been helpful in just a few short sessions.

Debra is simply wonderful. Her easy going nature helped simplify everything. She listens thoughtfully and offers new perspectives. I'm very grateful for her insight, and her kindness.

She is the first therapist I’ve been to who actually listens to me. She repeats back what I’ve said and asks questions for clarity. She’s really helping me!!
