Announcement icon I am currently offering only video-therapy sessions. I expect to admit new video-therapy and video-coaching clients in September 2021.
Debra Ann Brodie is not currently accepting new clients.
The adult client who makes the most progress with me is the one who desires a “new life”. In this “new life”, success outnumbers failure, hope exceeds fear, and confidence outweighs self-doubt. This “new life” requires giving up the negative, automatic narrative about “what was done to me”. In its place, a new narrative emerges: “who I really want to be and do”. This transition involves accepting full responsibility for the genesis of his/her/their thoughts, feelings and actions. In other words, the adult client who works best with me is willing to “grow up”. "Growing up" is extremely essential for couples work.
I am a fully-licensed psychologist with a practical, yet, deeply meaningful approach to psychotherapy and life coaching. For nearly 20 years, I have applied positive psychology (i.e. the science of thriving) to help my clients see more of "what's right" with themselves ( AND others) in spite of their habitual thoughts about "what's wrong".
Being an adult human being is hard. Our brain wants to say "yes" to desirable change, but, our "gut" often says "no, it won't work, don't do it". Using the new polyvagal theory, I use mindfulness exercises to calm the "gut" and allow the brain to proceed step-by-step to a thriving life.
