Debbi’s belief is that scheduling the first appointment is often the hardest part of therapy. Being sensitive to her clients needs she provides a safe, non-judgmental, comfortable, and confidential environment. With over 23 years of experience in the mental health field, coupled with her personal life experience, clients find that she is; understanding, empathic, compassionate, and quick to connect with them and their situation. Debbi’s diverse experience working with individuals and families has taught her that therapy techniques are like clothing; one size does not fit all. She works with each client to determine which therapeutic technique fits best for them and then tailors their treatment for that perfect fit. Using a variety of techniques, Debbi works with her clients to help them approach their personal issues, and find “their” answers.
