I am curious to get to know you and appreciate what makes you unique and special, in the here and now. At the same time, I believe psychotherapy involves growth and potential.

I hope that together we can explore growth, but I believe that in order to move forward you often must consider and make choices, even when your options are limited. As we consider your choices, I want you to feel that my office is a safe space to talk and explore. In this non-judgmental place, I also hope we can examine your relationship patterns and coping mechanisms, and consider whether to strengthen or modify them.

Finding the right therapist is like dating. It can take a few tries to get the right fit. With the right therapist your life can be transformed because you have someone who can provide support and guidance as you go. I act like your personal cheerleader encouraging you to adopt healthy patterns and try to avoid destructive ones.

I help people who are struggling with a variety of personal, work and school issues like stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I also help clients who are grieving, going though a difficult time, have parenting questions, communication problems, or dealing with infidelity and/or divorce.  I try to understand my clients' current challenges and examine their patterns of behavior and thinking that led them to their current situation. Together we look at family patterns and environmental factors to determine their best next steps to feel better. I incorporate mind-body suggestions if the client is open to that.

I use video therapy to empower your ability for self-care, because your time is the most precious commodity and sitting in traffic just isn't very conducive to finding meaning and relief.

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.

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.
