About

I practice depth psychology to help heal trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and depression in adults and children (age 10+). I create a safe space to begin your journey towards healing. Whether you (or a family member) are going through a life transition due to divorce or job loss, feeling depressed or anxious, or experiencing a relationship conflict, making a change is always easier when you have an experienced professional to guide you through it. I can be that guide. Invest the time and energy to improve your emotional health as you would your physical health. I work with individuals, couples, and groups.
Areas of experience: Life Transitions (job changes, medical concerns, parenting, divorce, loss, life stages); Relationship Counseling (dating, pre-marital, marital, separation, divorce, conflicts with family members and/or supervisor/colleagues); Mood/Behavior disorders. With over 20 yrs of Fortune 100 HR experience, I offer expert-level career counseling.
Congratulations, if you are reading this you have taken the very first step on your journey towards optimal wellness. Please call or email today for a free consultation so that I may learn more about your needs as well as answer any questions that you have. Evening/weekend appointments are available to meet your schedule.

Debra Brigandi's Groups

Children of Divorce--online meetings

This 9-week online program helps children cope with the often overwhelming feelings that accompany an impending or past divorce. The goals are to help children express their emotions in a positive way, and to develop coping skills that are needed in this time of change. Participation in a group can help children to not feel isolated, and they benefit from hearing the experiences of others. Groups are organized by age (from 9 to college age) so that they will work with an age-appropriate group of peers. Must be a current client of The Counseling Center of Texas in order to participate.

More about this group

Navigating the rough waters of Divorce--online

This online group is open to all who are trying to navigate their way towards a more peaceful divorce. Open to clients in all phases of divorce, from the planning stage, negotiation phase, and post-divorce. Learn about coparenting issues, keeping your "cool" when things are getting tough, and how to cope with the grief often associated with divorce. This is an "open" group but members must be undergoing individual therapy through our counseling center in order to participate. We meet online on a weekly basis.

Coping with COVID -- online support group

Thousands have lost their lives or fallen ill to the coronavirus. Over 17 million people in the US have lost their jobs, while many schools are struggling with plans to reopen safely.

Participants will gain new insights and coping skills as well as share support with other group members. Open to adults over age 18. Must be a current client of The Counseling Center of Texas in order to join.
