Meet Debbie

As a licensed clinical social worker, I bring four decades of experience and a wealth of knowledge and compassion to my practice. I firmly believe in providing social-emotional support in a nurturing, non-judgmental environment. The transformative power of conversation and genuine listening is at the heart of the care I offer. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working in diverse practice settings, encountering individuals from all walks of life to address a range of challenges including generalized anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship issues. My approach is deeply rooted in building strong therapeutic relationships. I have found that through fostering trust and understanding, discussions can delve deeper, leading to clearer insights and positive life changes. I am committed to offering evidence-based strategies to enhance my clients' thinking, emotions, and behaviors. I specialize in solution-focused interventions, guiding individuals towards proactive steps to overcome obstacles. Utilizing cognitive-based approaches, I help clients recognize and challenge thinking distortions that often contribute to distressing feelings and behaviors. My philosophy emphasizes the active involvement of clients in their healing journey. I hold profound respect for each individual's capacity to achieve the changes they desire. Together, we collaborate to explore avenues for growth, resilience, and lasting well-being. In my practice, I address a variety of conditions, including adjustment disorders, depression, anxiety, and relationship challenges. With a forward-facing perspective, I work alongside my clients to navigate their current struggles and cultivate pathways towards healing and fulfillment. I am committed to empowering you on your journey towards greater mental and emotional well-being. Let's embark on this transformative journey together, where your voice is heard, your concerns are valued, and your growth is nurtured.
