Hi, we all know life can offer many challenges and sometimes we just need a catalyst or bridge to assist with crossing over (going within) to the next journey or adventure in our lives.

My intent is to walk with you through those emotional and psychological doors past the pain, fear and guilt. You will give yourself permission to be happy joyous and free!

I was very reluctant to seek therapy. I was terrified at the thought of being dismissed, or that I would discover I was beyond help.
Debra is kind and reassuring. She is perceptive and provides the validation I so desperately needed.
She asks questions that stir up strong emotions, but in a way that still feels safe.
I am very grateful for her.
