Licensed Clinical Social Worker #SW9555

Hello! I am Debra Killackey. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional with approx. 20 years of experience. I offer face-to-face and video therapy sessions to clients.

I want to begin by acknowledging how difficult the process of seeking therapy can be and commend you for taking this courageous step towards healing. I guide clients towards gaining empowerment over their life by providing tools to navigate personal experiences in a more fulfilling manner. Therapy is a process and we will work towards building trust to uncover some challenging life experiences together.

I hold a safe space for each client’s unique style of coping and I work hard to create a collaborative, constructive and challenging environment that is also consistent with compassion, acceptance, warmth and occasional humor. Nothing is taboo in our discussions. Our work together is free of judgement, shame and a space where you as the client feel you can be your authentic self.

I take a unique approach with each person to keep your goals the focus of our treatment. I use evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) and Trauma Informed Care to help you achieve your goals. I aim to make each person feel welcomed, cared for, accepted, and empowered – regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.

I have helped couples and individuals build the components necessary for strong, resilient relationships within themselves and with others. Together, we’ll increase self-awareness while transforming difficulties into strengths – allowing you to let go of self judgement, shame and guilt. This will allow you to embrace what’s possible in a new way, bringing more pleasure and meaning to your life.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, depressed, or have past experiences that continue to affect you, you have come to the right place. Therapy is an opportunity for personal growth and development in various aspects of your life. You are capable of change, you are resilient, and you deserve to live a happy life. If you feel like we could be a good fit, I encourage you to make that initial appointment. Together, we can begin to face any challenges and uncover new, meaningful ways to approach life.


My goal is to help you to develop deeper insight into your personal thoughts, feelings, and behaviors while emphasizing your strengths and abilities.
