Accepting Clients

Hi there! My name is Debora Ribas-Santos. You can count on me to provide a nonjudgmental, warm, safe and welcoming therapeutic environment.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , CA


About My Clients

Do you feel like you are losing control? Have you been feeling down, anxious or overwhelmed? Are you having communication issues with somebody in your life? If any of these apply to you, don’t worry. You are not alone and I want to help! Taking the first step in your emotional healing can be the hardest. Life is full of ups and downs; sometimes we need a little extra help to get through it. Like the lighthouse, I would like to guide you through your healing journey. You can count on me

My Background and Approach

I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all therapeutic approach. After getting to know you and what you feel is most important, I will adapt to your needs. Some therapeutic approaches I use are (but are not limited to): solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have experience working with people from all walks of life. I have worked with children, adults and family; across various settings: schools, hospitals and other social service agencies. I have considerable experience working with individuals with depression, anxiety, those who experience difficulties with life transitions and domestic violence. To ensure I provide my clients with the most up-to-date practices, I attend trainings, workshops and conferences. I make it a point to learn and understand what it means to be in your particular situation. Not everyone with depression is the same, not everyone with anxiety is the same and not every LGTBQ person has been the same. I want to learn about your personal experience and how I can better assist you, individually.
