Debra Franklin, LCSW of Progressive Psychotherapy, has 30 years experience and supervises a team of therapists. She also offers and trains therapists in  Heart Path Therapy that she developed. Description of Practice: This approach integrates uses of spirituality, inner childwork, family of origin work (Family Constellations, Bert Hellinger), imagery, dreamwork, journal writing, energy psychology, sound, and energy work. Her philosophy is that you can release anxiety, depression, difficulties, and more through a combination of focusing on feelings and the inner child with various uses of the imagination, and meditation and prayer, toward finding a greater sense of purpose. For children, she utilizes play therapy, engaging their imagination & work with parents as well. Facilitates a Spiritual Empowerment Group as well as other groups and workshops.  With couples she harnesses the use of NVC by Marshall Rosenberg.
