The world we live in often places extraordinary demands on individuals and families. Psychotherapy can be a wonderful process through which you learn skills and strategies to increase coping and adjustment. Evidence based treatments are supplemented with other effective therapeutic approaches to help assist you in meeting you therapeutic goals. I work with individuals, couples and families on concerns that range from temporary upsets to challenges of a more complex nature. My goal is to help you THINK GOOD, FEEL GOOD!

I provide a comfortable and safe therapeutic environment for familes, individuals, and couples to make positive, meaningful life changes. I help you set goals, solve problems, & assess your emotions, behaviors, & cognitions so you begin to feel better and behave in helpful, more effective ways.

I am specially trained to help children and adolescents develop skills for managing difficult emotions and challenging life changes during various stages of development. My goal is to foster growth and insight for healthy psychological development.

Deborah K Gilman's Groups

Divorce Adjustment Group

Divorce can be an exceedingly difficult time of adjustment on an individual level. One therapeutic method for facilitating "growth" in divorce is a group experience entitled "Divorce Adjustment Group." The goals of this group are to: (1) help individuals regain emotional autonomy; (2) mitigate the debilitating aspects of divorce; (3) have a place to safely discharge some of the emotionality of divorce; (4) develop a broader concept of divorce; (5) meet new friends in a meaningful way; and (6) learn coping mechanisms that transfer into dealing with other losses

More about this group

Social Skills Group

Most people tend to "pick up" social skills in the same way they pick up language skills: naturally and easily. These people generally have an implicit social "map." Some children need assistance developing this social "map". If social expectations are clearly explained, modeled, practiced, and reinforced, the social "map" of a child with social challenges is likely to improve.
