Presenter — Debbi Dunbar, LPC
Debbi Dunbar, LPC brings over 20 years of personal/professional fitness experience into her current career as a counselor. Her career began in Southern California in the mid 1980’s teaching group exercise at health clubs while earning her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. Her Corporate Health and Wellness career took off in the 1990’s, working for major corporations in California and Virginia. Upon moving to Texas in the mid 2000’s she resumed teaching group exercise in Fort Worth and up to the 2010’s she owned a small fitness consulting company.
Her decision to return to university was based on her motivation to better serve individuals struggling with issues she felt unable to help; such as eating disorders and exercise addiction, which she saw rampant in the “health and wellness” field. With over 20 years of recovery from her own eating disorder, Ms. Dunbar’s passion is to help others find their path to recovery.
Today Ms. Dunbar holds a master’s of science degree in Counseling Psychology and is a Licensed Professional Counselor. Her specialty areas include recovery from Eating Disorders, Childhood Trauma, Addictions, and the underlying conditions that drive these behaviors.
Ms. Dunbar’s experience in the counseling field includes working at two local psychiatric hospitals and a residential eating disorders facility. She currently works in private practice in Fort Worth. She is an EMDR Therapist.
