Headway

Deborah

Since becoming licensed in the state of Florida in 1998, I have had the privilege of working in my own private practice where I work with people of all ages as individuals, couples, or families. I also have had the privilege of working with a private, non-profit community mental health facility as both a mental health counselor and in a supervisory capacity where I had up to 25 counselors and support staff that reported to me. Additionally, I created and taught a 12 week Parenting Skills class for more than 20 years. My experience includes helping clients with myriad diagnoses including Major Depressive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in both children and adults, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, grief, and Adjustment Disorders covering anything from family and parenting concerns, to stress, work-related problems, etc. I have been offering telehealth services for several years now and find this very beneficial to my clients. If you would like, you may visit my website (hopehelpdirection.com) to learn a bit more about me. I look forward to talking with you and working with you to help you determine your counseling goals and creating a plan to achieve them.
