Deborah Leib's bio

This content was provided by Deborah Leib "I have been practicing therapy for over 20 years and have a diverse training background. I graduated Adelphi School of Social work and received my LCSW-R.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Deborah Leib "In the field of psychotherapy a therapist will encounter people with a unique background, family history and emotional needs. I believe a therapist must be able to utilize diverse techniques to best accommodate all the variables. My strength is the ability to listen without judgment, help an individual discover what they truly want, understand what is hindering their growth and learn how to achieve their goals.  We all get lost and overwhelmed and need a skilled therapist to guide one to a happier life. The diversity of a person's issues must be met by a trained therapist who has the ability to offer varied therapeutic philosophies and techniques. The format to achieve this success may be found in individual, group, couple, family or marriage therapy.  Each modality offers a wonderful opportunity to resolve the burdens of one's unhappiness and find contentment."

Patient Comments (1)

Truly a horrible experience. Her issues are more important than the patients, she has almost no boundaries, and feels entitled to using humiliation both in a private and group setting as a “therapeutic” tactic.
