Debbie Dechene, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Do you need help to alleviate suffering and let go of past patterns and hurts?

Are there areas of your life you want to improve and unsure how to move forward?

Reaching out for help can be challenging, but can also be very rewarding in the end.

In our work together, I will use proven tools and techniques including cognitive behavioral strategies and brief solution-focused approaches. These interventions will help you improve your problem-solving skills, resilience, and sense of peace and well-being.

Are you a parent struggling to raise your adolescent during the teenage years?

In my work with teens, I understand how tumultuous these years can be and how alone and worried parents feel. My goal is to support your family through this journey and engage with your adolescent so they feel heard and gain skills to manage life’s difficulties.

I enjoy helping the following types of clients:

  • Parents and Teens
  • Couples
  • Families dealing with conflict, depression, anxiety, separation/divorce, grief, stress and anger management
  • I also frequently work with female clients on women’s issues

In addition to clients who are private pay, I am in-network with the following insurances:

  • Tricare
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield, all out of state  plans as well as PAI, Thomas Cooper, Federal and SC state plans
  • Medicaid (all plans)

If you have questions or are ready to begin counseling, contact us today.  Charleston Counseling Center accepts a variety of insurance plans and our friendly administrative staff will get you scheduled with the best clinician for your goals.  Don’t continue to feel alone in your struggles, we are here to help.

Client Testimonial

“Debbie is such a beautiful person. She was my light when I no longer had one. She listened to what I had to say and never judged me. I went in on the first appointment wanting to end my life, how I am striving to live. Depression is such an ugly, difficult battle, but Debbie gave me the strength and the tools to fight back. I will forever love her and appreciate everything she has done for me.” -M.R.
