Care Philosophy

I am in the field for 20 years and have worked in most every setting. Now I'm in private practice for 10 years. I have a lot of passion and experience in both mental health and substance abuse treatment. What I love the most is seeing patients get healthier and happier. This is what therapy will do. My approach is direct, honest, open, caring, empathic, and not wasting people's time or money. I love what I do and have a desire to help people who want help. I also work with addicts/alcoholics who are often very resistant, toxic, and hostile because some are court ordered and frankly do not want to be in treatment. These are the folks who have wrote bad reviews. So, please I encourage to take this into account when reading bad reviews on the internet from disgruntled patients.Read more

Dr. Debra K. Lewis, PSY.D says

Unfortunately there are patients that are unwilling to change and or do not like the information a therapist communicates to them, which may result in their posting something negative and slanderous online. I would encourage you to please read the positive postings of patients that have actually worked in therapy. The negative reviews are simply dishonest and disturbing. It's one thing to say the therapist was not a match but to make up negative things is unfair for this platform.

Dr. Lewis is a terrible listener and makes up situations! She also like to put labels on people. She made our child feel worse about himself and he begged us not to go back because she would create what she thought the situation was and ask him if it wasn't that way. Please do not take your child to her.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lewis for several years. She has been an integral part of my recovery. She is very accommodating for my schedule, and has always been careful to keep in contact with me even outside of her office and traditional business hours. I can't imagine where I would be inn my recovery without her. I have recommended several people to her as well. I would encourage anyone looking for a psychologist to contact Dr. Lewis. Her level of caring is second to none!
in Royal Oak, MI |
She has been a real blessing to me. She is very easy to talk to and has helped me through some really tough times. I would recommend her to all.
in Troy, MI |
She is very easy to talk to and very professional and knowledgeable.

Dr Lewis is a no nonsense, strong, intelligent, and experienced therapist. I've been through several therapists prior to finding her, and feel like I've finally found someone that's able to help, guide, and motivate me to get healthy.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
