Debbie Koeltzow, EdD, Psychologist in Dexter
I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds. Each individual brings new and different elements to culturally reoccuring problems. Our work together usually enriches us both. As a CBT therapist, I believe the value of changing thoughts, beliefs and attitudes. These strategies are especially effective for anxiety, depression, addictions, anger and interpersonal interactions. I am also an advocate for personal choice and self care. So while changing thoughts and attitudes is helpful, the client decides which thoughts and attitudes they want to change. Finally, I supplement CBT with practical strategies for relationships, healthy lifestyles, relaxation, problem solving and general coping.
I consider myself a general practitioner of psychology, willing to work with most people across a variety of issues and problems. But, in the course of my work I have gained experience and training working with ADHD (children and adults), addictions (including substance and behaviors), and couples and family issues.
I believe individuals are capable and competent to handle their own business. Sometimes individuals are coping with problems that are more than can be managed alone. I view helping others cope and learn new skills, so they can manage their own lives as an important part of my job.
