Deborah has extensive experience in the areas of anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, and conflict resolution. Deborah worked in a variety of settings including in-patient and in-home hospice, a college counseling center, an independent day school for dual diagnosis behaviorally challenged youth, and the medical hospital setting. Deborah counseled individuals, couples, families, and staff in crisis, chronic illness, life transitions, end of life, and conflict resolution.
Deborah’s recent work has been at an inpatient rehabilitation facility for individuals struggling with dual diagnoses of substance abuse and mental health disorders. Her work included assessments, diagnosis, treatment planning, individual and family counseling as well as group therapy and psycho-education for clients and staff. Deborah uses a client centered strength based approach to customize treatment plans that gently identify barriers, develop attainable goals, and teach coping skills that empower clients in strengthening their inner voice and resiliency.
