14 years of experience

Hi, My name is Debbie! Do you ever feel the light has gone out and you are navigating alone and in the dark? Does life seem to have no meaning and purpose? Do you struggle to get out of bed? Has something happened in your life that has caused you to question yourself and everything around you? Find Hope Here – Let’s work together to find a brighter tomorrow. Life can be miserable at times but it shows great insight on your part to reach out for help. By doing this you have completed the first step. Being willing to accept, change, and adapt to your new situation, can be daunting and scary but I want to walk this journey with you. You are worth it and deserve a better life with consistency, growth and a little fun! I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist with 14-plus years of counseling experience related to grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, and life transition related to postpartum depression, new careers, retirement, divorce, disabilities, and the aging process. Experience also includes building and maintaining relationships in a healthy way. I want to walk this journey with you providing empathy, education, and a non-judgmental safe place for you to share your thoughts and feelings. We will move at your pace because we cannot rush grief. Thank you for allowing me to share your life and its many detours.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I will begin by making sure you are comfortable and feel safe enough to share what is on your mind and heart. In the first session, we will address your reason for seeking therapy – I will also ask questions as we go along to allow you to speak your mind in a calm, friendly, and nonjudgmental setting. We will review your goals and I will assign homework as necessary, to help in achieving your goals.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My strengths as a Counselor are confidentiality, empathy, meeting you where you are in life, and attentive listening – all provided in a nonjudgmental platform. Additionally, embracing those of all cultures, races, and backgrounds is important and exciting to me! My areas of experience consist of but not limited to – - Grief related to many losses we face – death, divorce, a relationship that has ended, loss of job, loss of health, disability, loss of identity - Grief-related losses are my niche. - death, divorce - Anger management - working with those who are challenged with disabilities - postpartum depression - depression/anxiety - how to become a better version of who you are today

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

This modality is a form of Talk Therapy where you can process through your thoughts, feelings and actions. CBT will help you connect the dots between your thoughts, feelings and actions leading to improved mental health. This modality can help those with depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

This form of therapy is known for helping with regulating emotions and building healthy relationships. In addition, DBT helps those dealing with overwhelming thoughts and feelings and teaches you to be compassionate toward yourself and others. You will also learn new coping skills and how to take action when appropriate. This form of therapy helps those with depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger management, post-partum depression and substance abuse.

Grief Therapy

This modality of therapy encompasses loss of any kind, i.e., death, loss of relationship or job. Also included is loss of health, leaving us with a disability. The grief journey is individual and unique – your grief journey is your own. There is no cure for grief; however, after 14 years of helping people understand their grief, enhance coping skills and how to adjust to change, this therapist will cherish the opportunity to walk this journey with you.

Christian Counseling

This form of psychotherapy incorporates Biblical principles and spirituality into the treatment plan. It focuses on healing the mind, body and spirit. By exploring your beliefs, needs, and values, you will gain greater insight into a deeper relationship with God, thereby finding meaning and purpose in life causing more positive mental and emotional well being.

Person-centered (Rogerian)

This form of therapy teaches self-awareness, acceptance and personal growth. This therapist will always use this form of therapy with everyone to create a friendly setting, treating you with respect in a nonjudgmental setting.
