- About us
Debbie Tomasovic, M.Ed./Ed.S, LMFT
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington and Oregon. I have provided therapeutic treatment since 1994. In individual counseling I treat depression, anxiety, social anxiety, life transitions, trauma, and most general counseling issues. I have worked extensively with children, teens and families. Much of my family work has focused on helping children and families overcome trauma, including abuse and neglect. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (E.M.D.R.) and use this tool with clients overcoming trauma or wanting to enhance confidence in their strengths. I have used Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in individual and group counseling to teach valuable life skills. I have facilitated domestic violence groups and anger management classes for men and women since 2005. I provide counseling for couples who are dating, premarital, married, gay, lesbian and straight. I have extensively studied Ecopsychology, which provides a strong foundation to my Eco Therapy practice. I present workshops and trainings to the community and other professionals in the field. I have provided clinical supervision to therapists seeking licensure as Marriage and Family Therapists and Mental Health Counselors.
Robert Johnson, M.Ed., LMHC
I have been a counselor since 1980. I have been a program director, supervisor and consultant to several treatment programs. I use an eclectic approach to counseling utilizing a variety of methods including Rogerian Client Centered Therapy, Psychodynamic, and Gestalt Therapy. My main focus is to utilize Experiential Therapy. I owned and operated an experiential team building business in Texas for 15 years. This experience taught me the importance of using experience as a therapeutic change agent. I believe it is experience that forms us and experience that transforms us. I will attempt to help the client create experience in their life that will provide healing. Because of this approach, I try to give the client a structure and framework to work within. I also am a strong believer in teaching methods to create change. I often conceptualize assignments for the client to try in their life and report back upon to assess what the effect was. I try to meet the client’s therapeutic needs based upon where they are in their healing process.
I provide individual, couple, family and group counseling. I lead domestic violence groups, aggression control classes, ADHD classes, and codependency workshops. I work with people going through transitions, divorce, depression and anxiety, and most general counseling issues. I have worked with addictions throughout my 31 years as a counselor. I was the director of two Drug and Alcohol agencies in Texas; however I am not certified as an addiction counselor in Washington State.
