Sharing our inner experiences with someone can often feel frightening, which is exactly why I place such an importance on connection and acceptance in the therapeutic process. I aim to create a safe environment that will invite my clients to delve deeper into their personal narrative, as I truly believe we are not built to process emotions alone. As humans, we all have a propensity to grow and become our true selves, unfortunately we aren’t always gifted with the circumstances to allow it. I am passionate about creating a space for not only self-discovery and self acceptance , but to allow clients to feel seen, heard, and valued.

Hello! I offer psychotherapy and professional consultation services. As a therapist I work with adults (18 and up) who have difficulties related to trauma, life transitions, relationship issues, loss, and aging, including anxiety, depression, decreases in life satisfaction, and end of life concerns. I am cognitive-behavioral in my theoretical orientation and pull from a range of evidence-based interventions depending on my clients' needs and preferences. I integrate acceptance -based practices, such as mindfulness, in treatment as needed. I welcome clients of any race, gender, or sexual orientation.

I also lean towards mindfulness based practices, particularly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
It is my belief that in spite of all life’s pains and challenges that it is entirely possible to find contentedness and even joy in our experience. I aim to learn about my client’s past, their values, life desires, and the current struggles that get in the way of daily life. It is through this exchange that we build a therapeutic relationship and set the stage for our work together.

I am a Certified Grief Counselor and trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy and Healing Arts (using creative expression to process experiences).
Many of us often find ourselves in grief - whether that is from the death of a loved one or because of a life transition or crisis. My client might find themselves in a place of suffering as they battle anxiety, depression and a diminishing sense of self-worth. My client would be able to set an intention for their future self to help identify goals in therapy. My client would be curious about their own selves, process their experience, challenge narratives that no longer serve them, set healthy boundaries, build compassion for self and others, and live an authentic life that is aligned with their core values in order to thrive.

While no approaches are universal, I strongly advocate for the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction in tandem to manage stress.
When life feels presents us with stress, whether it be from anxiety, depression, or trauma, it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed and a sense that our lives have become unmanageable. My greatest satisfaction comes with assisting individuals in recognizing their power to grow and thrive. I assist my clients, who include adolescents and adults, in finding ways to change their relationship to thoughts and emotions and develop a stronger sense of self, establishing core values, and creating an action plan linked to goals based on those values.

I believe every person can find a way toward strength, growth, and healing, but I also know it can be hard to be alone in the process. Hi, I'm Deborah! I work with adolescents, adults, couples, and families experiencing unexpected challenges, trauma, life transitions, complex relationship and family dynamic issues. I'm passionate about the possibility of meaningful change, because I've been on the other side. That's why I strive to help others find hope through the storm, freedom from the obstacles they face to realize healing, restore relationships and experience abundant living.

Life presents all sorts of challenges, one is solved and a new one arises. We are often told to ‘pivot’ by others due to demands of others and uncontrollable changes. Maybe, even feelings of being "stuck". All this can lead to insurmountable distress and feelings of it being unmanageable. You can heal, recover, and succeed in positive growth! My experience in counseling is diverse and vast. I've worked in the helping profession over 20 years (minus a few years to parent). Currently, I work part-time with a community based program. There appears to be a great demand for mental health providers and I enjoy being able to help others.

Life is about how we experience the world around us. The current landscape of the world has led to increased stress and isolation. I can offer support and teach skills to help navigate current struggles. These skills will help create a toolbox that can be used throughout the changes and challenges life brings. I believe we are most successful when we have self-awareness, that prior experiences have a great impact on how we view ourselves and how we function in our lives. I can help integrate difficult life experiences into current reality so you can achieve a more fulfilled and meaningful life.

Therapy isn't mysterious. It helps you create clarity about what you really need and how to get there. In the photo, I'm enjoying a hike in nature. I also enjoy my clients. It is refreshing to provide a comfortable place for you to express your true feelings, to problem-solve and clarify your thinking. It is OK to seek help. Emotional overload happens to everyone. Your problem doesn't define your value. Imagine newborn babies. They are all equal and valuable. Self-limiting beliefs are "learned" later. It is an essential understanding that your true self is perfect.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Camas will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
