Hello, I am Deborah Thoennes. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am passionate about helping others to experience faith, hope, and joy in their lives. We are human, and knowing what is and isn't in our control is empowering.
I utilize Client-Centered, Trauma-Focused, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Faith-based approaches.
I typically work with children, adolescents, adults, and their families. I am comfortable treating a wide array of disorders, including Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Feeding and Eating, Obsessive-Compulsive, and Personality disorders.
My communication style
Clients have consistently reported that I energize a calm, positive, and fun environment. To work with me, you will feel hopeful.
My journey to mental healthcare
I am very empathetic and compassionate about helping others find joy, peace, and happiness.
My goals for you
In goal setting, we talk about areas of distress, identify unhealthy coping skills, and identify ways to alleviate those areas of distress through healthy coping skills.
My first session with you
In the first session, I love getting to know you. You will talk about anything you want to, we will identify what would be best for future sessions, and identify healthy coping skills to use in the meantime.
