Dealing with grief? It may be due to the loss of a loved one, a divorce or break-up, or from some of the more than 40 different types of losses that interrupt familiar patterns of life and relationships. These can include moving, job or career changes, illness/disability, miscarriage, change in financial status, a best friend moving away, empty nest and many other life transitions that can leave you feeling bewildered, stressed, sad and even angry. As a Grief Recovery Specialist®, Debbra is equipped to help you take the specific steps necessary to heal your heart after loss using The Grief Recovery Method.

Are you tired of the repetitive arguments? Does conflict leave you and your partner feeling defeated? Debbra can help you learn to talk about the most difficult areas of your relationship in a way that builds intimacy and understanding rather than frustration and distance. Debbra is trained in Gottman Couples Therapy, based on 40 years of research on what makes relationships work. She can show you the key behaviors that transform relationships to bring respect and closeness rather than heartache. If your partner is reluctant or unwilling to come in for therapy, Debbra can help you begin to make strategic changes in communication and behavior to shift the negativity.

Debbra has over 20 years of experience in church ministry and can provide faith-based counseling for those who desire this.
