Debra L Kaplan, MA, LPC, CMAT, CSAT-S, EMDR, Counselor in Tucson
Debra's therapeutic focus is experiential, direct and supportive. Clients are successful in resolving their family of origin issues, trauma, sex addiction, porn addiction, or anxiety and depression. Debra's work in healing financial disorders has become a regular request in therapy. "My clients have voiced success in living happier lives and healthier relationships both within themselves and with others." Debra's clients learn effective and successful tools in creating inner emotional safety and emotional regulation. Together, you decrease or resolve compulsive & self-harming behaviors that once served as adaptive measures from experiences of rejection, abandonment, and/or invalidation.
Debra strives to help each individual achieve enduring, positive change away from old self-defeating behaviors. Patterns related to unresolved trauma, sex addiction, internet and porn addiction and money issues are extinguished while new healthier behaviors for self-empowerment and happiness, take hold.
Debra is faculty for Dr. Patrick Carnes' International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Therapists, a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and Supervisor. She trains with Pia Mellody, a pioneer in the field of codependency and family of origin trauma. Debra wrote, For Love and Money: Exploring Sexual and Financial Betrayal Meet, that was published in 2013.
