In our collaborative work, we will explore and identify what's getting in the way of consistently experiencing connection and enjoyment, so that you can experience greater confidence, balance, and trust in your Self.
YOU DESERVE THIS.
Every human being deserves to feel understood, confidence, and joy. A strong relationship with an experienced and caring therapist can be exactly what is needed to begin the road to healing and change. I believe therapy is about becoming more Self-aware and increasing our capacity for connection. to learn about how real healing can happen when we feel safe enough and have the confidence to trust ourSelves.
Working with families is a real passion of mine. I love getting to know about each family system and supporting family members to discover different ways they can feel more understood and connected with each other.
about how I can help families rediscover their connection, trust, and enjoyment of each other.
Parenting support group
I think we can all agree that parenting is the Hardest job we will ever do! to learn how this group helps parents feel more confident, calm, and more connected to their kids! Using a Self-led parenting approach, I support parents in identifying and helping parts of them that believe they are not "good enough" as a parent.
What people are saying...
"Debbie is an excellent, dedicated mental health professional and I do not hesitate to refer my clients or friends to her for therapy."
"I had the good fortune to meet Debbie as a colleague over a year ago. Since then we have consulted on cases, worked collaboratively to support different clients of the same family and shared our passion of IFS therapy. Debbie is kind and funny, smart and humble, flexible and clear. I have referred individuals to her frequently and they have found working with her to be very helpful and have felt a strong sense of connection to her." - Colleague
"Debbie's parent support group was of great value to me. It was so comforting to be with other teen moms who experience so many of the same struggles that I do. It was a great opportunity for me to reflect on myself and my inner struggles or critical thoughts that get in the way of being a better mom. Debbie did a wonderful job of making sure each person's voice was heard in a nonjudgmental manner and that we each had time to share and have our needs met each week. She was flexible to accommodating to our schedules as well. I recommend Debbie's group to any mom raising a teen." - Group member
"I was blessed to have been able to find Debbie for individual supervision. She is insightful, flexible with her schedule, collaborative, and incredibly supportive. I would highly recommend Debbie for any supervision/counseling needs. I am forever grateful for the part she played towards my professional development." - Supervisee
