Hello, my name is Debbie Westrate. Whether it is trauma, pain, anxiety, relationships, or something else causing distress, you need not feel stuck where you are. There is hope in the healing process. When you feel you are ready to engage in a journey towards wellness, I hope you will allow me to walk alongside you and help you along the way. Every person has their own unique personality and I work hard to collaborate with clients to create a therapeutic process that fits them best.
I provide in-person and telehealth mental health services to adults, teens, and children ages 10 and up. While I specialize in treating trauma and anxiety, I also work with those who are seeking help with perinatal mental health, parenting skills, life transitions, emotional regulation, and relationship concerns.
I offer both individual and group counseling, and believe strongly in treating each person with integrity, providing a safe and non-judgmental space for healing and wellness. I utilize a variety of techniques including Somatic Therapy, Play Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy.
I acknowledge the power that relationships and larger cultural context have on human psychology and experiences. It is my desire to help clients integrate that in the therapeutic process. When you feel you are ready to engage in a journey towards wellness, I hope you will allow me to walk alongside you and help you along the way.
