There’s almost always more than one way to solve a problem or address an issue in your life. But which approach is right for you? I specialize in answering that question -- looking at the challenge or obstacle you’re facing from several different angles. Maybe you feel stuck, or anxious, or have something that you just keep doing, and that thing has become the obstacle. My job is to listen and suggest ways to address that obstacle, and allow you to return to your natural state of mental well-being.

I look forward to being able to sit with you and help you find your place of healing, a sense of well being, and connection with others. I believe in the power of the relationship in the therapy itself, and its value in conveying that to healthy and connected relationships in the rest of life. In working through hard stuff like past trauma, or current betrayals, or facing the hard realities of the behaviors you don’t want, its so important to feel safe, and know that you won’t be judged. That’s what you will find in my office. I bring warmth and comfort while at the same time dealing with uncomfortable emotions, and difficulties that need to be resolved.

Hi I'm Dr. Deb Hecker and I am delighted to meet you.  I have been in private practice for over 35 years in several major US cities.  I work with individuals and couples.  When prescribed properly, I am a big believer in psychotropic medications.  If you were to ask my clients how they would describe me, they would likely use words like "bold," "benevolent," and "loyal." I am an active collaborator in the treatment process and very direct with my clients.  It is very important to me that people understand their own development and conflicts. I answer all questions.  My clients would also say I am very kind, compassionate and a great listener.  Once I make a commitment to a client, I am easily accessible.

Thanks for your interest. I hope to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and assist you towards your personal goals. I work as a psychodynamic therapist, meaning that together we can examine how unconscious beliefs, past relationships, and our interactions in the present moment affect you and your current concerns. Additionally, I use CBT and mindfulness strategies to help develop healthy coping skills. I specialize in the LGBTQ population, but welcome all who are seeking support and wanting to build personal insight.

Sometimes we worry that coming to therapy means something is wrong. I believe it means something is right.

Often my clients find themselves facing more decisions and questions about who they are and what they want out of their lives and relationships than ever before. This is an important time in life when many people ask themselves: How can I feel like what I do matters?

In therapy, we are curious about who we are, how we got to this place in our lives, about our relationships, and our larger environment. In therapy, we think about change and take the brave steps that lead to change happening.

My approach to therapy is compassionate, direct, and authentic and I keep in mind that therapy is not always about problems and unhappiness. Therapy can also be about happiness and contentment. Throughout the therapy process, many people experience increased self-acceptance, feeling more centered, grounded, and connected.

One of my favorite therapist sayings is, "if nothing changes, nothing changes." I sincerely enjoy helping clients explore all of the unique strengths and coping skills that they already know, and then supporting them in discovering and using new skills to improve their mental health. In my practice, connection-building with my clients is extremely important. I always want to create a safe space where any person can feel validated, supported, and understood. All of us deserve the opportunity to feel our best and I would be honored to help you discover what your best looks like.

If you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or unsettled, talking to someone on the outside, an objective listener, can be a way to get clarity and put things into perspective. Whether you need guidance to make a change in your life, navigating difficult relationships, to dealing with the pressure to meet expectations - my goal is to help you claim personal power in situations where you feel hopeless, increase your self-awareness, and build your resilience in the face of challenge. I believe in creating a safe and judgement-free zone for you to speak your truth.

Using a collaborative approach, together we will uncover behavior patterns that might be getting in your way. I don't believe in a one size fits all approach. You are unique, and I seek to understand how your life experiences have shaped you. Together, we will identify or customize strategies that work best for you.
