Deborah Azim Fleming profile photo

Deborah Azim Fleming is a trauma-informed Registered Social Worker living in Waterloo and providing online counselling in Ontario.  Since graduating with a Masters of Social Work in 1989,  with a prior Honours Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Debbie has worked in both counselling and management roles in health and social services.  During her years of practice, she has supported diverse individuals and families experiencing life transitions, loss, anxiety and depression.

Debbie approaches counselling from a relational and strength-based perspective.  She understands that having support to strengthen resilience and coping is often needed during challenging times. Her approach integrates how our brain and biology are linked to our responses, and explores how we can reshape our thinking to change and move forward.  Having someone who is the right fit, to connect with for this journey is key for personal growth, well-being and a sense of safety and calm.

Debbie is currently an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Family Medicine, at McMaster University, and was a previous lecturer in the Faculty of Social Work at Wilfrid Laurier University.
