Debbie Gerse, LCSW


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who earned both a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Master’s in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh.  I have a strong background working with kids as a family=based therapist in both schools and outpatient settings in community mental health and private practice.  In my 25 years of therapy experience I have worked with clients from 5 to 72 years of age.

My areas of special interest include ADHD, depression, anxiety, working with autism spectrum disorders, school related issues, parenting skills, self-esteem issues, trauma informed care and grief related issues.

I am a strong advocate of my clients taking an active role in the therapeutic process.  Therapy is not something you buy off the shelf.  I will work with each client to tailor and individualize the process to meet their needs and goals.  I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness skills, dialectal behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, family therapy and teach anxiety management skills.

Appointments are available.
