Psychiatrists in Bend

Deborah Macwilliams, Psychiatric Nurse  in Bend
“Entering into therapy can be both exciting and anxiety producing. As a provider of counseling and mental health care it is my belief and intention to offer attentive listening and to nurture a relationship of positive mutual regard. Trust is important - trust in the process, trust in the relationship, and trust in yourself. All my therapy approaches take into consideration the effectiveness of learning how to listen to your own thoughts, work with your emotions and beliefs, and pay attention to how your body both responds to and initiates feelings and thoughts.
