I have been a practicing Clinical Social Worker since 1994. My early work was in residential care where I had the privilege of working with children and teenagers and their families. This work allowed me to understand the importance of treating people with a wholistic approach that takes into consideration a person’s mind, body and spirit while also looking to understand family dynamics both past and present. I chose to begin my private practice in Falls Church in 2003 and since then have had the opportunity to work with teenagers, individuals, families and couples.

Included in my training are family systems therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, attachment theory and mindfulness training. I am a certified Gottman therapist and have studied and practice Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples.

Debbie Beach was voted a top Marriage Therapist by Washingtonian Magazine in December 2012.

My work is informed by my belief that we all have strengths. Sometimes our inner health is buried underneath depression, worry, anger or fear. When this happens we end up struggling in our daily lives and in our relationships. I believe that by slowing down, gaining insight and creating new pathways that are healthier, we can live more fully and peacefully.

In addition to my work as a therapist, I also devote many hours of my practice to working with people who are experiencing separation and divorce. I work as both a Collaborative Divorce Coach and a Parenting Coordinator. My goal in this work is to help people move forward in their lives and be strong parents for their children and collaborative co-parents to one another.
