Psychologist & Consultant

In 1988, Deborah founded Psychological Health Care, Inc. as a clinical practice. In 1990, using her skills as a licensed psychologist, Deborah began consulting in diversity management while still providing counseling services to individuals, couples and families. In 1993, the consulting arm, D. L. Plummer & Associates, a firm of human services consultants specializing in diversity management and organizational transformation, grew to such an extent that it began to operate independently of Psychological HealthCare, Inc. In 2004, Dr. Plummer closed the clinical practice arm of the firm to devote its efforts solely to the practice of diversity management and organizational change efforts. D.L. Plummer & Associates has worked successfully with over 70 organizations in diversity management, diversity strategic planning, facilitating diversity training and conducting organizational development consultations. Currently Deborah’s work focuses on public speaking and writing projects.
