**Unfortunately, I am unable to offer services to new clients at this time.
*Due to COVID-19, services are offered either online and/or in person, with masks, if clients are fully vaccinated and at least two weeks post their second vaccination. This includes mindfulness and Trauma-sensitive and therapeutic yoga services which are particularly helpful for stress reduction and self-regulation support.
All individual therapeutic services are offered at my private practice office* at 291 Bostwick Farm Rd. in Shelburne, Vermont. This is an easy drive from the Burlington hub and surrounding areas.

Psychotherapy, Yoga Therapy, and Mindfulness:
Deb offers a safe and compassionate relationship context and peaceful office environment for individual psychotherapy, yoga therapy, and mindfulness training. She believes in individuals’ inherent capacities to grow, heal, and expand coping and resiliency skills. Core to the work may be considering the narratives and meaning individuals attach to significant life experiences, as these can expand or diminish us. Deb completed the Trauma-sensitive Yoga Training Program for yoga instructors in November of 2008 and has offered TS Yoga series and individual sessions since 2010. In 2017*, she became a certified yoga therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapy. (Certification renewal was disrupted due to the pandemic and is in process.) Deb participated in the Radical Acceptance and True Refuge mindfulness training workshops at Kripalu with Tara Brach, Ph.D. She integrates somatic healing modalities into psychotherapy for interested clients. Deb has a rich professional background including: education and special education, school and clinical psychology, traditional yoga and yoga therapeutics, and mindfulness training.
Formerly at the Vermont Center for Integrative Therapy for eight years, Deb has served individuals with a variety of presenting needs or concerns, from ages nine to 80. Presently, she works with individuals 18 years and older. (Former clients under the age of 18 are always welcome to return for services.) Specialties include working with individuals healing from acute and chronic trauma that can be appropriately served in an outpatient setting, as well as those experiencing learning disorders (or variation), attention disorders, and/or traumatic brain injuries, as well as family members and loved ones assisting with adaptation to these experiences. She offers trauma-informed/therapeutic yoga to individuals and groups. Private pay and specific insurances are accepted.
