Welcome to Dr. Deborah Nixon, Psychologist
We all have seemingly insurmountable personal struggles at times. If you are troubled and not coping well on your own, you may benefit from consulting with a clinical psychologist. Psychologists are trained to help you to explore and express your problems, negative thoughts and feelings and to help you take control of your life again and move it forward in a positive direction.
Dr. Deborah Nixon has been in private practice since 1983. She does both individual and marital psychotherapy. She has experience in the areas of depression, anxiety, loss, bereavement and grief, post-traumatic stress disorder, abuse from childhood, gay – lesbian issues, work place problems and stress management.
In addition to working on current problems, Dr. Nixon has particular expertise in helping you work through unresolved issues from your past that are having a negative impact on your present day life. She has had training in a number of different treatment approaches but tends to focus mostly on those that help the individual explore and express feelings. Individual therapies include emotionally-focused, gestalt, client-centred, EMDR and applied relaxation and stress management. Marital therapy focuses on problems pertaining to intimacy, power imbalance, conflict resolution, communication skills training and unresolved conflicts and relationships from the past that may be negatively impacting the marriage. Dr. Nixon treats individuals from diverse backgrounds/occupations and has considerable experience working with law enforcement/police officers.
Psychotherapy can provide the perspective and tools to help you overcome your toughest challenges. You do not have to keep struggling on your own. Having an experienced psychologist with whom to talk helps to break the isolation you may be currently feeling and to move your life forward again in a way that feels right to you.
