About the Author
Debra Littrell, MA, LMHC is a facilitator, author, speaker, workshop facilitator, consultant, trainer and psychotherapist. She began her career in the mental health field in 1977. She has worked in locked psychiatric settings, crisis centers, juvenile justice, social services, mental health, and private practice. About ten years into her career she began noticing that traditional methods for treatment were not providing change for a significant number of people.
Debra began a journey of asking questions. What would offer change? What prevented change from occurring? What else is available or could be created that would give people the relief they were looking for? She began exploring alternative methods of treatment, some of which became clinically validated in later years. She studied body centered psychotherapies, various spiritual traditions, and a variety of energetic modalities.
She explores with her clients what works for them to design individualized plans. This has meant stepping out of the traditional prescribed-treatment box and into a more fluid way of working. Debra prefers to work as a facilitator of change since the traditional psychotherapy box limits what is possible for change. Especially if insurance is used.
