Dr. Debbie created the positive childhood experiences concept in 2022. Through a family therapy lens of honoring the strengths of each person, this understanding recognizes the integration of systemic thinking, sociocultural attunement, congruence, differentiation of self, and spiritual wellness. In her solution-focused practice, Dr. Debbie recognizes that trauma like adverse childhood experiences also comes with protective factors like positive childhood experiences.


Protective factors are attributes in communities that promote the health and well-being of children and families.


By using the protective factors approach in collaboration with community, we help our clients find resources and supports that emphasize their strengths while also identifying areas where they need assistance, thereby reducing stress, anxiety, and other mental health concerns.
