Using an eclectic approach, Deborah uses DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness approaches to help clients find relief from Depression, Anxiety (general, social, situational, etc.) and OCD, amongst others. Deborah is also skilled in helping recently divorced parent(s) co-parent in healthy ways which in turn will create a healthy and optimal environment to raise happy and well-adjusted children.
By being skilled in multiple therapeutic approaches Deborah aligns with her clients with care and compassion while still managing to challenge them so they can grow.
