  • Separation, Divorce & Greif
  • Major Life Transitions

Tele-mental Health

Also known as distance counseling; tele-mental health brings together technology and psychotherapy, removing the stigma of counseling, any inconvenience associated with coming to a counseling session and the stressful scheduling issues often associated with counseling. It also allows those in rural settings or those who are homebound due to health reasons maintain their appointments. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, tele-health services have seen a tremendous increase in popularity and are expected to become the method of choice for many individuals. Telephone sessions and video-chat are available and confidential.

Getting Off Drugs and Medications

Deborah has worked with many people who are going through withdrawal from anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications, sleep medications and other narcotics including opioids. Working along with your prescribing doctor, she will help you transition with a bridge that may involve whole food supplements, amino acids, herbs, and essential oils. This will soften the withdrawal process, provide daily and ongoing support if necessary and offer an alternative where necessary.

If you currently take anxiety medication or medication for depression or other medications and want to reduce them, Deborah can work with you and your doctor to create a successful outcome. Throughout the process, she will be available to work alongside your medical doctor. Do not stop taking prescribed medications without consulting your medical doctor.
