Debbie Vessels


About Me


My name is Debbie Vessels. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Indiana. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN and my Master's from Indiana University/Purdue University (IUPUI) in Indianapolis, IN. I have experience in many different settings such as inpatient, hospital, college, outpatient community health, private practice and hospice. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse and difficulty adjusting to changes in life.

I am a firm believer in mind over mood. I believe our thoughts dictate how we feel, act and respond. As such, I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy to assist with identifying irrational thought patterns and how we can change them into something more positive. I also utilize strengths perspective. So many times an individual does not realize they have strengths so they are not utilized to make change. I rely on motivational interviewing and solutions focused as well.

I'm glad you have reached out and I'm ready to help!
