What People Say About Dr. Deborah Gershanok, PHD

Dr. Deb provided sanctuary for me as a nonbinary and trans male who does drag with a bi plus identity. I was asexual for some time. I've been struggling since childhood for self acceptance. She shared her support, skills, kindness, research, resources and I found community and genuine family. She saved me from self abuse and codependent relationships.

Dr Gershanok is amazing. She was able to determine the root cause of my anxiety issues in a short time. In our sessions Dr Deb developed a set of tools and strategies that help me keep my issues in check. After long life of struggling with daily tasks now I feel in control and able to open up and take on activities that I never attempted before. I recommend Dr Gershanok to anyone who is suffering and needs help in dealing with anxiety.

As an Asian Latina I struggled feeling like an outsider at work. With the ton of attention and support from Dr. Gershanok I am resilient and coping well with daily microagressions we each have. I saw Dr. Gershanok as an employee first and then remained for ongoing therapy under insurance and my relationship with friends, lovers, family and myself are improved a lot. I know because I feel secure in spirit and body. She helped me set a flexible routine for self care so I stay on the right path.

Dr. Deb has helped me with opioid addiction in several months. Many people in the addiction world know she's a trusted pro and probably one of the best in this field in the Pittsburgh South Hills area. I was referred by someone who has been helped by her before. She took the time to know me, caught me when I fell more than once, and offers emergency visits prn stat. I was suicidal. I now can self regulate better by making sober choices. KUDOS to Dr G!!!!!

I would not recommend. Dr. Gershanok has a habit of scheduling appointments back to back. Your appointment will not start on time and you will not get your full session. While discussion was solid, she could have been a little more nurturing, and less concerned about paperwork.

Strong, nurturing and protective. Deb Gershanok stays current on brain research and trauma. In my trauma case involving cults, she used laughter, yoga concepts, brainspotting, bilateral music and non stigmatizing case formulation techniques. With her I felt reconnected to myself, powerfully more relaxed and have great relief in the first session. I still feel wonderful after 8 months and believe my spectacular results are typical because she does not advertise and is often fully booked.

Deb gives you the tools to cope with stress/anxiety/sadness, self improve and build upon your success. She is also extremely accommodating. I typically call her in times of need, and she will get me in within 24 hours. I cannot recommend Deb enough!

Not sure where all of these glowing reviews are coming from. I would highly discourage people from going to this provider. I've gone to other therapists who've had much better bed side manners and dispositions.
