A graduate of Harvard University (BA) and of Fuller Theological Seminary (MAT, MSMFT), Deborah has worked with families, children, college students, and adults for over twenty years both in the US and abroad. She started her own private practice in Pasadena as an MFT Intern in 2005, where she continues to regularly meet with people who have experienced severe childhood trauma, depression, anxiety, creative blocks, life transitions, and pastoral/spiritual crises. She is passionate about the dialogue between psychology, theology and spirituality, and is currently a doctoral candidate at Pacifica Graduate Institute writing her dissertation on the role of the Sacred in engendering the courage to be embodied for those recovering from childhood sexual abuse. She was a trainee and intern at Santa Anita Family Service (Monrovia, CA) where she worked with a diverse population who brought with them issues with domestic violence, substance abuse, and child abuse. For two years, she was an in-home family therapist with Family Preservation. She was also an intern at La Vie Counseling Center (Pasadena, CA). She continues to receive training in a depth psychological approach to trauma, and is glad that there are mentors and senior analysts out there from whom she can glean insight, wisdom and the highest degree of professional competence to pass on to her clients, as well as her supervisees. She speaks French and cannot go a day without loose leaf tea.Robin Wynslow
