Deborah Haug is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Providence, RI who specializes in working with girls and women across the lifespan—whether it is a teenager struggling to fit in with peers, a young woman in college who feels pressured by parents to get all A's, or a woman who has a pattern of getting involved in abusive relationships. She has experience helping girls and women overcome social anxiety, handling school or workplace harassment and bullying, and navigating the complex and often unhealthy parent-child relationship.
Deborah has an eclectic approach that is grounded in psycho-dynamic and cognitive-behavioral theories of therapy. She explores how past experiences inform how individuals view themselves and others. She then helps them identify their negative core beliefs and thought patterns and develop healthier ones. Deborah has a solid expertise in the unique challenges that girls and women face and supports them in developing a strong sense of self.
Deborah ultimately wants her clients to grow and to develop the confidence to make the changes that will improve their lives. She looks forward to meeting you.
