Deb Schierbeck


About Me

My counseling style is relaxed yet professional, based on the person-centered theory that we are all unique and everyone's reality should not be judged but accepted. I will validate and reflect your personal stories, provide guidance and resources to help you find a path to feeling better and achieving your goals. I have 20 years of experience in the mental health field treating depression, anxieties, relationship issues, couples counseling and as a Certified Sex Therapist specializing in sexual health issues (adult survivors of sex abuse; couple sexual difficulties; and women's sexual challenges). I use the Emotionally Focused Therapy model of treatment in addition to the person-centered theory when working with couples or with individuals working on relationship issues.

I graduated from Bradley University with a master's degree in counseling and completed the sexual health program at the University of Michigan and am AASECT (American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists) certified.

Deb is extremely patient, professional, and thoughtful in her practice. I truly appreciate the detailed expertise and level of insight that she provides, and she is a great listener and leader. I couldn’t be more happy or appreciative that Deb is our counselor!

Deb really solves issues without being bias or taking sides. She really listens to both parties to accomplish “needs” in relationships. Every session has really been heartfelt. I’m so happy that she was assigned to my relationship. Truly a big help.

Thank you,

Deb is receptive and professional. I love that she gives us “homework” instead of just being a sounding board. She is great!
