About Deborah DeWeber, MA, LMHC, CMHS

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington and am also a Child Mental Health Specialist. I am a natural listener with a passion for seeing people set free from destructive mind sets.  I love people and feel honored to be included in each clients’ story.  I aim to give insight and tools toward breaking free from toxic thought patterns and behaviors.  I work to meet clients where they are at and walk with them toward wholeness.

 

Private Practice in Kent, WA

I believe in holistic healing that takes into consideration the whole person physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. I believe that counseling is a pathway for growth and healing. I help foster a safe and nonjudgmental environment where clients can gain insight and healing. I believe that the client is the expert on their life and I am the expert on strategies to facilitate the desired change. Working together the desired outcome is achieved through honest introspection and intentional changes. I consistently demonstrate genuine concern and maintain a posture of unconditional acceptance.

Overall, the therapeutic model I use is cognitive behavioral therapy. I incorporate essential components of:

  • Psycho-education about maladaptive behavior or thinking
  • Emotion regulation skills
  • Individualized stress management skills
  • Connecting thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
  • Cognitive and effective processing
  • Education about healthy interpersonal relationships
  • Parent treatment components including parenting skills
  • Joint parent-child sessions to practice skills
  • Personal safety skills training
  • Effective coping methods

The counseling services are based on the best available evidence for effectiveness and are tailored to meet the specific needs of individuals and families. I offer high quality, effective and culturally respectful care that is coordinated and strength based.
