Hello

My name is Debbie Wheeler. I am dedicated to helping you travel your journey to mental health. I believe that strong individuals help to build strong families that lead to stronger communities.


I believe that to build strong leaders for the future we must focus on the resilience of youth today. Whether it is guiding parents through challenging times or teaching resilience-building classes, there are countless ways to assist in strengthening one another.

My Experience

I hold a Masters Degree in Education with a focus on Child Development and a Masters Degree in Personal Counseling. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in both programs. I am the recipient of the Juliette Thorner Award as well as the Presidential Service Award I am also a Golden Key International Honor Society member.


After 20 years in the educational field, working in both public and private school settings, I decided to alter directions to better serve the entire family.


Now, I share my passion for helping by striving to empower each individual with personal confidence, renewed self-love, and guided achievement of fulfilling goals. I also endeavor to create future leaders of tomorrow by helping build resilient youth today.

My Approach

The goal is to  help identify gaps and capitalize on opportunities.  Each individual has been gifted with unique qualities and every person desires personal accomplishments. This is attainable by all.


 When working together we will discover the best course of treatment to support your individual needs. When working with youth, my counseling process is designed to empower youth in their own decision making and outfit them with the tools they need to succeed. 


Working together we can build on strengths,  create a solid plan to accomplish goals, strengthen core values and build resilience to assist with success.  You will find a supportive and collaborative environment.
