Deborah trained and worked at Houston Galveston Institute, a non-profit organization, known for its groundbreaking work in collaborative language systems therapy.

Trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Deborah believes that this therapy modality is a vital means for discovering life themes that are not working for us in order that we can replace them with new ones that promote growth and strength. The only therapy protocol approved by the United States military for the treatment of trauma, EMDR has been successful in the treatment for a wide range of therapeutic needs.
Elizabeth believes that every experience and encounter in life has a purpose. Nothing happens by chance. She believes our challenges and melancholy periods are not meant to break us, but to provide valuable lessons for us to learn, grow and become stronger, more confident, compassionate, and fulfilled individuals. Many times, all we need is the right help, support, and guidance.
“It can be scary to start this journey, but it is also scary to be stuck forever. There is a life where you get to have more control and peace. You are not alone and whenever you are ready, we can begin working together towards your healing.”

Have you ever had a feeling of being intuitively guided? Have you ever felt like you knew something was right or wrong for you? We all have stories that we can’t quite explain, but these are threads we can tug at, as we inherit the wisdom of our deeper selves, uncover greater truths, and navigate through our personal life journeys.
I primarily use humanistic therapy, which is a type of therapy that emphasizes the point of view of the client and allows them to take an active role in their treatment. In addition to this style of therapy, I also use CBT, and mindfulness therapies. Through these modalities I’ll use in our work together, I implore you to step into the wholeness of who you are – a more empowered version of yourself.

MS., MA., LPC-Associate

Have you felt unheard or unseen by your doctor? Perhaps you are worried about an upcoming surgery or are dealing with trauma after an operation. Maybe you are also dealing with the stress of having a physical disability and are trying to lie in a world that requires you to adapt. In all of what you are feeling right now, maybe you are dealing with major life transitions, the loss of your identity, or self-esteem issues. You want to live a life just like everyone else, but you deal with anxiety and wish you can control your negative thoughts. You want to accept who you are, and live your life to the fullest with no regrets.
My primary focus is working with older teens, young adults, adults, the elderly population as well as people with disabilities. I also work with clients who have issues related to life transitions, codependency issues, trauma/PTSD, anxiety, chronic pain/illness, social skills development, and obsessive-compulsive issues.
I specialize in clients both with and without disabilities with self-esteem issues, trauma (which includes medical trauma), co-dependency, and life transitions. In sessions, I also incorporate the use of the creative arts to facilitate freedom of expression to learn how to live life to the fullest.
As someone with a physical disability (I have a form of dwarfism), it is easy for me to empathize with my clients. My background is in disability advocacy as well, and I am one to always advocate and fight for my clients. One of my favorite quotes is, “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain” by Viviane Greene. This quote reminds me of how one can move through adversity in life. I help my clients on their journey toward working through adversity in their lives.

I see therapy as a collaborative effort. Two humans with different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and beliefs work together to establish a direction for therapy that aligns with the client’s goals and evolving needs. This approach is most successful when both parties engage in sessions as genuine, authentic individuals. Consequently, I am
committed to fostering a therapeutic environment that allows for open communication, trust, exploration, and growth.
When working with clients, I use a trauma-informed Gestalt and existential approach. Specifically, this means we focus on thoughts, feelings, sensations, behaviors, and images that arise in the “here and now” during sessions, discussing and acting them out in real time to see how past experiences influence the client’s current, day-to-day life.
As difficult and painful emotions, memories, or sensations arise for the client, we work together to contain and process the experience, allowing the client to move into a more balanced, relaxed state of being. From here, the client develops a sense of understanding, meaning, and ownership over their history, which informs how they live outside the
