"Mommy. It's just one thing you don't want to mess up."-JENNIFER LOPEZ
“Words cannot express the gratitude my wife and I have for Deborah!” Brad, St. Charles, MO
“Deborah has not only helped me feel more equipped to respect my girls’ feelings while setting appropriate limits for their behaviors, but she has also empowered me to respect my OWN feelings and set appropriate boundaries for myself. I wish I had had these skills 15 years ago, when my kids were little and parenting was so much more challenging. It is a crying shame that I lived for so long feeling like a bad mom, but I feel incredibly grateful to have these skills now and it is an absolute privilege to recommend Deborah to others.” Virginia, St. Louis, MO
“Deborah’s gentle care and support were indispensable through a time that would have otherwise been traumatic.” Jamie, St. Charles, MO
“Deborah has been instrumental in helping our daughter recover from a very difficult time in her life. I would recommend her services to anyone seeking a compassionate listener that can assist children in the most difficult situations life can present.” Tony, St. Louis, MO
"You’re never prepared for situations that bring you to therapy. I felt like I should have known how to properly help her through that situation. I didn’t understand a lot of stuff until I got the training. We both needed this play therapy." Rachel, St. Louis, MO
I've successfully raised a HARD to PARENT child who has become a brilliant man I am proud to call MY SON!
I’ve worked with hundreds of kids and spent more than 15,000 hours playing with kids in my own unique brand of play therapy.
I've completed more than 100 hours of training in play therapy including an intensive 2 year training program and supervision in child-centered play therapy.
I'm deeply devoted to helping kids have happy childhoods because I didn’t. I know how to heal from childhood trauma because I have not only healed but have gone on to live a wonderful and flourishing adult life.
I've created a unique program for parents that reveals step by step the methods used by professional child centered play therapists. In the comfort of their own homes, parents are equipped to create life-changing, relationship-building experiences with their children in just 30 minutes a week.
