Debby is the clinical director of Primrose Healing and Wellness. Debby has been a licensed psychotherapist and an educator for many years. Her compassion for clients along with her strong clinical skills are strengths that clients will see. She has had extensive experience working with individuals, couples, and families.  


Debby has a special interest in working with couples.  She helps couples who are struggling with their relationship to decide if they want to make it work or end the relationship.  She works from a communications model.  She evaluates the communication in the relationship and teaches couples new ways to communicate.  Whether a couple wants to work on the relationship or to end it they need strong communication skills to help them problem solve and make decisions.  If couples decide to end the relationship she helps them to mediate this process. 


She also helps couples with co-parenting.

Fab Slama 


I’m Dr. Fabienne Slama. You can call me Fab. After getting a divorce from a 20-year marriage and never having earned a living for myself, I bounced back on my feet in less than 3 months, built my company from zero to 6 figures in less than 3 years, published two books and helped over 1000 clients reinvent themselves. Today, I help people who have been bullied by life and are doubting their potential to change their patterns, heal family trauma and reconnect with the FabYOUlicious part of themselves so they can manifest the success they desire

Mabel Yiu


I started this practice with the goal of helping women and girls who are experiencing anxiety and depression, relationships issues, school and careers concerns.  Over time, I have recruited clinicians who are also very passionate about this cause and can understand what our clients are going through.  We have personally experienced with depression, anxiety, work stress, motherhood stress, and more. We have stared our up-and-downs in the face, and have triumphed over many challenges. Our experiences propel us to find solutions for ourselves and other women in similar journeys. At Women’s Therapy Institute, we understand that women and girls are wired and raised differently than men, and therefore handle anxiety, depression, relationships, and career stress a little differently.
