The road to transformation is through conversation! I am a counselor and executive coach combining over 30 years of extensive interpersonal communication expertise and corporate background experience. I work with individuals (couples and groups) from all walks of life who feel stuck, hurt or struggling with their own pain and challenges. Are you feeling low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, caught in a cycle of repetitive destructive behaviors (such as alcohol and drug use), experiencing PTSD, dysfunctional interpersonal relationships, workplace stress/bullying, social injustice or lacking direction, meaning and purpose?

Hi, my name is Debbie Kirkwood, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor. Having been in the mental health field for over 20 years, I have worked with many people of every age group and from various backgrounds and cultures. My focuses are Anxiety, Job Stress, Life Coaching, Stress, and Relationship Issues. I use Coaching, Person-Centered, Solution Focused Brief (SFBT), Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), and Supportive. I believe in meeting the client where they are and not where I want them to be.
I love working with people who feel pushed out of mainstream society due to their wonderful uniqueness- such as persons who are LGBTQ+, BIPOC, neurodivergent, or who have developmental delays, chronic physical or mental concerns. Telehealth therapy is really wonderful so you can meet from the comfort of your home. I truly enjoy using a technique called solution-focused so we can see change very quickly.
NOT accepting new clients: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : We all have a basic need to be connected, to feel seen, and known. The experiential therapy I offer is an opportunity to explore familiar ways of relating to others and then to experience and practice new ways of connecting. Over time, this therapeutic relationship generalizes out to your other relationships leaving you more connected, more confident, and more open hearted toward yourself & others. My style is expressive, engaging and inquisitive. I have trained online and in person in both IFS and AEDP and received advanced training in brief intensive therapy.
My clients (adults, couples, teens, and children) find me warm and welcoming. Everyone needs someone to listen to them as they work through challenging situations and I am here to help. My personal experiences and extensive educational background help me relate as you are navigating around, or through, life's twists and turns. You can call, text, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get the conversation started. For more information, please visit my website: www.sherryhallcounseling.com

Accepting New Clients- Psychotherapy is a powerful process. I apply a variety of approaches to help people understand themselves, their relationships with others, and their goals for the future. Perhaps the most important aspect of my approach is to understand your point of view and to integrate it to provide an effective intervention strategy. Life brings all kinds of challenges- depression, irritability, anxiety, and even physical symptoms are some of the ways that they can express themselves.
*Accepting new clients* The Center for Connection, Healing & Change was conceived as a sanctuary to facilitate joyful connection to ourselves and our loved ones. Our work focuses on the creation of secure, close, and satisfying relationships – within us and between us. We choose to specialize in relationships because we know the importance of satisfying relationships for our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Services explore the relationship we have with both ourselves and others; how well we can live with emotional ease, know who we are, ask for what we need, and access our resilience in moments of hurt or stress.
Adolescents, adults, and couples face many life transitions, such as identity exploration, planning for future education and career, and relationship challenges. Their therapeutic needs are personal and unique to their overall goals and view of life. Exploring trauma, addressing identity issues, reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression, and creating a new narrative for success are all part of effective psychotherapy.
We enjoy working with clients who are motivated to grow, change, and seek overall emotional health and wellness through the counseling process. We will create a safe and supportive environment (online) so that our clients are able to set and meet their goals without feeling judged or criticized. Our clients "drive" the counseling process, while we gently support them on their road to recovery and personal growth.
Parenting is one of the most rewarding yet challenging jobs that exists. I specialize in helping families thrive. I understand that this happens when parents and children enjoy strong, supportive and nurturing relationships.
In over 30 years of practice, I have discovered that my clients want more than relief from their symptoms. They want to better understand themselves and their struggles, they want practical tools to help them change, and they want more out of the relationships and their lives. Through my practice, continued training and education, and my own personal growth I am committed to offering my clients a wide range of meaningful and effective therapeutic experiences that address each of these desires and more. In addition to traditional psychotherapy, I offer hypnotherapy and equine assisted psychotherapy (an innovative experiential therapy).
I am compassionate and nonjudgmental and will offer the support you need to overcome life's difficulties. We are all different in the way we experience and manage life. I have always been interested in the wellness of others and have been blessed to watch many people find recovery. If you are feeling discouraged, overwhelmed, worried or sad, then together we can discover or revisit your healthy options to navigate those feelings. You have taken a step in the right direction to navigate those feelings and to reach out for help. Connection to others allows us to find peace and improved quality of life.

Take a journey inside the mind and body through the therapeutic modality that best suits you. If you struggle with anxious symptoms that reside in the body, yet can not recognize the source or trigger, we can quiet the mind to focus on what the body needs in that moment. Do depressive symptoms prevent you from interacting with daily life needs or impact important goals or relationships? Maybe attachment needs as an infant or child has affected your attachment with others? Are you a new Mother finding it difficult to manage newborn care or your own needs? Lets explore together how to tap into your true potential.
I am passionate about the helping relationship. This passion is a driving force that enables me to come alongside others on their journey as they make small steps in the right direction that ultimately allows them to experience growth, change, healing, and living up to their true potential. I have worked with various populations from school aged through adulthood with very unique experiences. These experiences, whether by their choice or the choice of someone else have left them in a place that they needed a compassionate, nonjudgmental voice to bring about: clarity in the midst of confusion,
