I am a licensed counselor in Idaho, Virginia, and Florida with 21 years of experience working with couples. I have a strong background in trauma, secondary traumatization, depression, military members, PTSD/anxiety, TBI, different cultures, LGBTQ, and those who have experienced disaster. I use a cognitive behavioral approach combined with other theories that will be tailored to your specific needs. I have worked with clients who just need a bit of guidance to those who have much more complicated needs.
I consider it a privilege to work with people through difficult and/or painful issues that maybe they have never told anyone about. I specialize in being present with client’s as we explore new methods for generating a healthier balanced life and relationship. I have experience working with clients in the medical field, military, law enforcement, and fire departments. I am outgoing and easy to talk to. I believe that everyone can benefit from counseling at some point in their life. I especially enjoy assisting people with creating a balance in their relationships and balancing stress with relaxation and mindfulness.
I look forward to meeting with you to explore the possibilities of creating a more balanced and less stressful relationship.

I am so thankful for Debbie! She is really so open & just upfront! Really understands where I come from & everything I say. She gives me a new perspective to look at things and find solutions to issues I have had for years! She is really the best at what she does! Even in my hiatus she would still message me letting me know she’s there for me regardless.
Haven’t gotten far but learned things already. Would recommend her.

Debbie took the time to get to know both myself and my husband prior to beginning the couples work. We are new to this, but so far Debbie has been amazing.
