Debra Schnack

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

I believe that therapy can result in a number of benefits, which include: (1) a better understanding of your personal goals and values, (2) improved interpersonal relationships, and (3) a helpful resolution to the problem(s) that led you to initially seek therapy.

My Approach

I take a holistic approach to therapy, concerned with the overall, long-term well-being of the individual and their family. I work with clients on partner relational issues, family of origin conflict, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and other issues in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment.

My Background

I have my bachelors degree in journalism from The University of Texas at Austin. I received my masters degree from The University of San Francisco.

I work with individuals and couples using a variety of modalities, some which include EMDR, Brainspotting, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Couples Counseling.
