Deb is the owner of Journey of Grace Counseling, LLC and has been in the counseling profession for 10 years, including time spent as a school counselor. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified Counselor and a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner. She holds undergraduate degrees in Business Administration from UW-Stevens Point and Communications from UW-Oshkosh plus Masters in both Counseling Education and Clinical Mental Health from UW-Oshkosh. Deb brings a wealth of life experience to counseling including working in business, community volunteering, school involvement, parenting and sports.

Her specialties include: anxiety disorders, stress management, performance enhancement, weight loss, depression, women’s issues, life transitions, marital therapy, abuse, trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). An additional area of interest includes working with children on issues that surface around school, anxiety, stress and self-esteem. She works with ages 12 and up, adolescents, adults and couples.

Deb is passionate about working with clients as they journey to be the best version of themselves. She believes in supporting clients in a collaborative manner, honoring that each client is a unique individual, who is an expert on their own life. They are a reflection of the life situations, choices, goals, values and actions that have been a part of the life they have lived.

“I believe counseling is a process as unique as each individual. It is a journey of empowerment where I, as a counselor, assist people in eliminating or shifting the limiting or negative patterns and behaviors that get in the way of being their best self. I use Brainspotting as a tool to access those beliefs that are ‘stuck’ in our brain and body.”

Deb believes that the counseling process is a journey of grace, since she feels honored by the presence of each person and their individual journey.

Andrea received her Masters Degree in social work from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee in 1993. She also graduated from the Masters Massage Practitioner Program at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (Phoenix, AZ) in 2005 specializing in Craniosacral Therapy. She currently offers psychotherapy, Brainspotting, and bodywork services at Affinity Wellness Center in Eau Claire, WI.

Andrea’s passion is in helping clients rediscover their inner resources and strengths and in time, move beyond suffering to thriving. Her counseling approach is experiential and holistically oriented while making use of newer, cutting edge modalities such as Brainspotting, which brings about neurophysiological changes that untangle core traumas and help eliminate the symptoms connected to these traumas. She has learned in her work both personally and professionally that when addressing emotional and psychological challenges, engaging the innate healing abilities of the body allows for more lasting and complete healing.
