DEBORAH BROOKS, LMHC, CT
I believe that everyone has the power to change. I meet my clients where they are and strive to create a compassionate and safe environment to explore emotional experiences, feel stronger and more empowered and gain awareness that will help to guide in making new, more productive choices.
Whether you are seeking therapy to heal past wounds or address current issues, we will work together to identify your goals and begin healing. My experience includes working with children, adolescents and families to solve problems associated with; grief and loss, abandonment, anxiety, self esteem, eating disorders, adjustment issues and lgbtq+ youth. I am committed to assist youth that face a myriad of challenges such as isolation, alienation, depression and fear as they attempt to navigate their emerging awareness of their sexual and/or gender identity.
I have been trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Accelerated Resolution Therapy as well as Adoption Competency. I use a cognitive- behavioral approach implementing mindfulness, and mind body approach to create specific strategies that promote increased self awareness and challenge negative thinking patterns.

Life is a journey full of beauty and unexpected challenges. It is during those difficult times when we may need additional support; someone to walk beside us along our journey and help us find the beauty of life again.
In my practice, I desire to create an environment where my clients feel supported, respected, free from judgment and free to explore their lives in potentially new ways. I specialize working with children, adolescents and adults who have experienced traumatic events including grief and loss, sexual abuse, physical abuse, domestic violence and family divorce.
I am a client-centered therapist that works to integrate narrative and psychodynamic approaches in my practice. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. I use play therapy techniques when working with children, cognitive restructuring and empowerment models while maintaining a trauma informed approach.
