Debbie WagnerAbout Me

In 2010, I earned my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology with academic distinction, during which time I trained at Halcyon Crisis Center where I counseled individuals struggling with severe mental health challenges. Upon completing my degree, I entered private practice as an intern at Center for Enriching Relationships and Family Consultation Services where I counseled individuals, couples, and families with a variety of mental health and relationship issues. Now, as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am continuing my private practice helping people manage and overcome obstacles that interfere with quality of life and healthy relationships.

As a Certified EMDR Therapist and as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, one of my specialties is trauma recovery. I also have advanced training and experience working with relationship issues, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, dissociative disorders, addictions, and grief and loss.
Outside of office hours, I am Adjunct Faculty for National University in the Master’s of Counseling Psychology program where I teach on a wide variety of psychological specialties. Additionally, I facilitate community-based education on a variety of mental health and relationship issues as a way to connect with my fellow San Diegans. I have also spent time volunteering as a Sexual Assault Response Team member through the Center for Community Solutions, San Diego's rape crisis center. My volunteer services also include San Diego’s Trauma Recovery Network wherein I provide pro-bono EMDR-related services to first responders of city-wide disasters when in active status. My commitment to trauma recovery includes participation in San Diego’s Victim Assistance Coordinating Council where I collaborate with Law Enforcement and other professionals in providing help to victims of crime. My passion is to bring hope and healing to our community. Additionally, I have been privileged to be selected by the California Association of Marriage and Famiy Therapists to sit on the Continuing Education Provider Approval Committee as of 2016 wherein I assist in evaluating providers of CEUs within this profession.
