Debbie believes that our life journeys include challenges that impact how we experience meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in daily life and relationships. She understands that counseling involves a process that explores life difficulties, and through this we can develop increased self-awareness, insight and attunement to your deepest needs. Debbie believes that change is possible and is unique for all depending upon the individual’s situation, beliefs, values and personality and will occur when one allows themselves to be who one is, and cultivates freedom to rediscover their strengths. Her understanding, caring and compassionate heart are what clients have most appreciated. Debbie’s faith informs the way she sees the world, and for clients that share the Christian faith, she is able to integrate that piece into the treatment process upon request.

Debbie brings an experience of counselling diverse populations at Bow Valley College, as well as volunteering on crisis lines at the Calgary Distress Center.
Debbie provides counseling for individuals experiencing a wide range of challenges:

  • Adoption Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Boundaries
  • Co-dependency
  • Couple Counseling
  • Deficit Disorder

  • Guilt/shame
  • Learning Challenges
  • Life transitions

  • Personal growth
  • Relationship issues

Debbie’s approach to counseling is holistic that takes into consideration the body, mind and soul to promote a foundation of emotional healing and well-being. She uses a Person Centre and Collaborative Approach that focuses upon forming an authentic, genuine relationship. Debbie’s work is founded upon Emotionally Focused, Mindfulness, and Interpersonal therapies which have foundations in the study of attachment and neuroscience. She believes that through this therapeutic combination we uncover how unfortunate life experiences or attachment wounds have affected us, our relationships and behaviors. Debbie believes that healing comes from our ability to make sense of your past, and consequently form a coherent narrative.

Debbie has evening availability as well as weekends. Debbie recognizes the importance of finding a counsellor who is a good fit and, therefore, offers a free 20-minute phone consultation.
