About me

I am a seasoned clinical social worker with over 35 years of experience providing therapy to individuals, couples, families, and groups. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Connecticut in 1979. I received a Master of Social Work Degree with a concentration in Family Services from the University of Connecticut School of Social Work in 1981,
During my tenure as a private practice practitioner, clinical administer, certified trainer and evaluator, I have had the unique pleasure to obtain several certifications and recognition for my interactions with clients. In addition, I had pleasure of serving on the NASW (National Association of Social Workers Clinical Subsidiary for Children) I was also appointed to serve on the Executive Broad of Psychiatry at renowned local hospital in Maryland for a two-year term and received recognition as a contributor in the DSM-V (Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Health Disorders Fifth Edition)
My role as therapist, has enabled me to work with individuals and families who are from diverse populations and who have experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, parenting and relational problems in addition to other adult and childhood mental health related issues.
Engaging in the therapy process can be very daunting, however I am confident that you can have a positive experience when provided the appropriate strategies, time, and support. The experience, and skills that I have acquired has enabled me to be empathetic, respectful, and nonjudgmental while providing the highest quality of therapy services.
Given the opportunity to work with you, I will provide you with the necessary tools to enable you to succeed. I look for to speaking with you.

I would like to thank Ms Debra for everything, meaning her words of encouragement in moving forward and the tools I needed necessary. She is really good at what she does. She listens to you and she is very honest about everything. She is a God fearing lady and you can see it when she is talking to you. I pray that God continues to bless her.

Debra is great! Personable, easy to talk with, and a good listener. I loved that she had experience and spoke candidly, but softly. She helped us improve on our communication relatively quickly and provided great insight.

Work with me!
