About

During the national emergency due to coronavirus, I will be seeing patients ONLINE. I know it is hard to reach out for help, but it is worth it! http://www.drdeborahcole.com Are you finding that emotional issues, addictions, or compulsions are interfering with your life? Do your thoughts or behaviors get in the way of relatiionships? My goal is to help clients take back their lives from compulsions and other mental health issues which take up their time and energy and get in the way of their success and peace of mind. I am interested in working with clients who want to work collaboratively so that they can live freely.
I treat depression, anxiety, sex addiction, OCD, trichotillomania (hair pulling), tics and Tourettes, and over-spending. I am certified in EMDR, which is effective in getting people unstuck from traumas, whether big or small. I use ISTDP (www.istdpinstititute.com) for overcoming personality patterns that undermine success and create misery.
I have a variety of methods and techniques in my arsenal. I might use EMDR (see www.emdr.org) for a person troubled by traumas, then hypnosis for someone with a fear of public speaking, and ISTDP for someone with personality issues. For a patient with OCD, I use cognitive behavioral therapy or ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention). For tics, I use CBIT.
