Hi! I'm Deborah. I warmly invite you to share in the amazing possibilities that psychotherapy has to offer. Psychotherapy can be instrumental in recovery from challenges of mind and heart including: depression, anxiety, fear, mood swings, stress, low self-esteem, and life transitions. It can help you heal from victimization, violence, and trauma. It can make heartbreak understandable, tolerable and even growth-producing. It can provide the foundation for creating new healthier relationships based on respect, trust, healthy compromise, and compassion. It can take an ordinary life and make it extraordinarily rich and purposeful.

Often pain, anxiety, discontent or depression in our lives is telling us something. Our emotions are eloquent communicators. Through the process of therapy we can learn to utilize this information. With self exploration and new insights, we can consciously create richer, more meaningful, fulfilling lives. Even in the best of times, people have recognized the benefits of addressing, through counseling, the difficulties that limit their personal and work lives. In these very challenging times, familiar coping strategies may no longer be working and the insight gained through therapy can be even more valuable. In a safe, respectful, confidential environment, you can learn how to build more effective ways to relate others, reduce stress, and live more authentically.

Do you feel marginalized, dismissed and judged by social norms? Are you a part of a community that outsiders do not understand (vegan, LGBT, veteran). Perhaps these thoughts are competing with what you truly know about yourself. The anxiety and depression setting in are natural responses, but you deserve to be understood, respected and believed. Your thoughts are valid. You want to rebuild that self-esteem and find a meaningful community without being marginalized. You are ready to silence the naysayers and fully embrace yourself surrounded by a meaningful community. Do you want to feel understood by someone who really gets it?

Are relationships supposed to be this hard? When sexual issues keep you from maintaining or obtaining a happy relationship it's time to see a sex therapist. As a sex & relationship expert, I successfully treat people with issues surrounding sexual desire & performance, sexual trauma, problems with arousal or orgasm, differences in the amount of sex they'd like to have, & sexual pain disorders such as vaginismus/vulvodynia. I assist clients in building intimacy by deepening their mutual understanding & compassion (for their often very opposite mate!) and help them stay accountable for taking positive action to improve relationships.

I treat clients from a trauma informed perspective. If it is addiction issues (substance or process) anxiety, depression or other mood disorders, so much of what informs these maladies is developmental or relational trauma. Big T or shock trauma can bring on many underlying issues that have been dormant. I work with clients to carefully assess their history and treatment goals. I use CBT, Psychodynamics, EMDR and other trauma treatment modalities to effectively resolve the inner disturbance.
