Deborah Schuessler, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

My philosophy is based on my belief in a humanistic, non-pathologizing approach to treatment, which emphasizes empathic connection as well as an analytic perspective. Because I feel strongly about offering the best possible treatment, I set high standards for myself, have an ongoing commitment to training, and am continually updating my skills.
