Angelyn Debord, LPC, NCC, RPT, PCIT
Angelyn has a BA in Studio Art from Appalachian State University and a Masters of Education from Lindsey Wilson School of Professional Counseling. Angelyn is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a National Certified Counselor, a Registered Play Therapist, and a certified Parent Child Interactive Therapist. Working with people of all ages, Angelyn seeks to meet clients with acceptance, warmth, and understanding.
Based on a belief that healing comes from within, Angelyn engages clients in the process of exploration of their own best selves by uncovering personal strengths and inviting these strengths to be acknowledged and ‘brought to light.’ Through reflection, mirroring and magnification of their interests and challenges, Angelyn supports clients in their ability to emotionally self-regulate. By reminding clients to treat themselves with the same respect they issue toward others, clients become aware of their own self-derogatory statements and replace these with supportive statements to increase their sense of well-being and self-esteem.
Native to the Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina, Angelyn’s background in the visual and performing arts support her use of art, self-expression, journaling, story-sharing and imagery in her therapy sessions. She is open to engaging clients, both young and old, in the creation of images and symbols for feelings that words can’t express. Angelyn has discovered that telehealth is an excellent modality for expressive therapeutic interventions for children, teens, and adults.
When working with children, Angelyn carefully follows a child’s process of play, providing attendance and reflection, knowing that this is a child’s ultimate form of communication. Angelyn works closely with the parents in increasing their positive engagement with the child. With warmth and acceptance, Angelyn meets clients where they are, with the confidence that, regardless of age or gender, change comes from steady support and self-care.
Angelyn spends her free time painting, leading story sharing workshops, performing Appalachian folktales at festivals, writing, swimming, tending her koi fish and gardening, alongside her husband, on their mountain farm.
