Debbie received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Pacific University with an emphasis in child and family practice. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at Oregon Health & Science University. She primarily works with adolescents and young adults. Her current areas of clinical focus include anxiety, depression, sexual and gender identity, chronic and terminal health conditions, and psychodiagnostic assessment (e.g., for ADHD, learning disorders). She utilizes a strengths-based approach and works primarily from behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, and internal family systems frameworks.
