Helping Your Child Learn the Skills for Life-Long Success
WHO WE ARE
Debbie Summers, LMFT
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I currently have a private practice in Los Angeles with a focus on counseling of children and teens, parents, and adult women. In addition, my experience of the past 25 years as an educator, Rebbitzen, and parent informs my work as a Marriage and Family Therapist and enriches and deepens my ability to understand and empathize with my clients’ experiences and concerns.
My approach is person – centered, forward-moving, positive, holistic, and strength –based; and I utilize a number of Therapeutic approaches, including Reality Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution- Focused Brief Therapy. Children are offered creative expression through art and play.
I believe in the therapeutic power of a caring and warm therapist-client relationship. And that people feel better when they are empowered to make choices that brings them closer to their wants and needs.
My data-driven intervention methods are adapted to each child’s unique neurological and processing capabilities. I believe in creating a fun, positively-charged atmosphere so that a child is excited and motivated to learn.
