About Debra

I am a Native to Montana and have lived in the beautiful Flathead Valley for three years. I am both a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Montana. I received both my B.S. and M.S. degree from Montana State University.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings with individuals, families, couples, children, and adolescents from various walks of life. I have served as a primary therapist for a day treatment facility for children and adolescents.  I have worked in a school system providing counseling services to students K-12.  I maintained a private practice in Northern Montana, before moving to Kalispell.  I have also served as a mental health consultant to a Child Development Center and University.

In addition to my newly opened private practice in Kalispell, I am privileged to also be employed by the University of Montana’s Institute for Educational Research and Service (IERS).  Here I serve as a national consultant, trainer, and researcher in the fields of suicide prevention and childhood trauma.
