Debbie Cohen has a double master’s degree in psychology and art therapy. She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working both in private practice and in residential treatment. Her long history of working in residential treatment settings has led to her specialization in trauma and addiction work. She blends traditional psychotherapy with Art Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Mindfulness, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and EMDR. Each of these modalities provides another layer to her safe and gentle approach working with her clients through some of their most difficult struggles.
Debbie believes that the challenges we face in life make us stronger. While hers are no exception, they do provide a unique understanding and perspective when working with each of her clients.
Debbie works creatively and compassionately with thosewhose lives contain themes of pain, loss, trauma, and heartache. She understands that the stories of her client’s lives have brought them to where they stand today. It is her hope that working collaboratively with individuals, couples, families, and groups, new paths can be explored that will lead to healing and the creation of new, more hopeful narratives.
