Deb Grant, LCSW, RSMT


Thank you for your interest in my psychotherapy and consultation practice.

I specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression as well as trauma-related issues, such as post-traumatic stress and dissociation. I have helped clients work through a range of life challenges including childhood trauma, divorce, complicated grief/death of a loved one, transitions into parenthood, and work stress or job changes. Other areas of experience and expertise include chronic pain or illness, auto immune disorders, sexual problems,body image issues and relationship issues.

Additionally, I have been of help to yoga practitioners, meditators and clients interested in Eastern and contemporary or mystical spiritual practices who wish to integrate or develop spiritual practice in conjunction with their psychotherapy work.

Over the past twenty years as a psychotherapist working with adults and adolescents, I have developed an integrated approach to treatment which includes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Body-oriented Psychotherapy, and ego state work (you mayclick on these links to learn more).

I also provide professional development workshops and individual and group consultation for therapists and other helping professionals who would like to develop or deepen their somatic approaches to psychotherapy.

I bring humor, warmth, and compassion to my work, welcoming you to hold all aspects of yourself in compassionate presence. Whether you are looking for short or longer term work, choosing a therapist is a highly personal experience. While expertise is important, perhaps of even more importance is the feel of the therapeutic relationship. This is something only you can determine is right for you.
