Hello! My name is Debra Robinson. I am Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Missouri. I have over 10 years of experience working in the field of counseling. As Life is Precious, my goal is to help individuals live a “quality” life. Quality living is when there is a balance between the body, mind and spirit; an unspeakable sense of peace. I am committed to helping individuals gain self-awareness so that they can begin to heal and see more positive emotional outcomes. I practice from an integrative perspective, meaning that I typically use several different therapeutic modalities in my work depending on the needs of the individual. I have specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavior Therapy and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. My clinical experience has included working with individuals, families and groups. I have a special interest in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, trauma, depression and anger issues. I know that seeking therapy can be hard at times, so I would love to make this process as easy as possible for you. My goal is to help you build on your inner strengths and natural resilience.
Additional areas of focus: Trauma and abuse, Anger management, Career difficulties
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy

Debra knows her stuff. She always find a way to put things into a perspective. She pushes me out of my comfort zone which breeds growth.

I struck gold when I was matched with Debra. She has, without a shadow of a doubt, changed my life for the better. My self awareness has grown hugely to the point I understand myself and I feel grounded. I can handle my anxiety in a structure way, how I approach my relationship is considered and thoughtful, and she has given me the tools to work through my emotions. Day to day life is considerably easier, which is exactly what I wanted from therapy.
Debra is very caring, prepared and kind. She has, over our time, adjusted our sessions on the fly depending on my mood/state/what has happened in the week. I have not once felt like we are following a prepared set of questions or script, which shows how brilliantly adaptable she is. On weeks where I don't have much to say are the ones I leave with the most valuable messages. I love my sessions with Debra and honestly could not recommend her enough.
