My wife and I have been working with Deb for almost 5 years and I would recommend her to anyone who is truly dedicated to improving themselves, their marriage, family life, or professional life. One of her greatest strengths is to really help you discover the root of things, to understand things, and develop an awareness of your behaviors and others in your life so that you can change. She’s extremely intelligent and always knows when to call me out when I am avoiding something or holding back

I have been working with Deb for many months...She has helped me make significant changes in my personal life that I would not be able to if I was not seeking treatment. She knows the right fit when putting individuals together and has a good "spider - sense" to understanding root cause(s) of an individuals behavior. Deb supports an open and constructive atmosphere and is always willing to put the work in for you...

I have been working with Deborah on and off for the last 10 years and have found her to be completely professional with kindness and insight She has helped me through some very dark times and I have never felt judged or criticized no matter wheat I shared with her. When I have referred friends and colleagues to her I have always been thanked It's refreshing to find a therapist who understands what you are going through with a clear perspective and sometimes a little laughter.

I found her to be insulting when her mood was less than “on” or her personal issues were triggered. In addition her boundaries are questionable at best. I tried for many months to work within the framework but found it worsened my outlook and self esteem in the end.

Deborah has been able to work with my family and give us the tools needed to handle our always stressful and busy life. She is flexible, provides great feedback and genuinely cares about her patients. We have recommended her numerous times and will continue to do so.

I have been seeing Deb for over a year. I've done couples therapy with my husband, individual and I am currently in a group. Going to Deb is one of the best parts of my week. We talk, laugh and hash our issues out. Deb listens and give very good ways of dealing with things. I have gone in with family, work and marriage and I leave with some resolve or ways to deal with the situation. I would recommend Deborah to anyone and I have recommended her to friends.

I don’t understand how anyone can rate Deborah with one star! She has been nothing but accommodating, flexible, helpful, and honestly, she saved my life. She has guided me in ways that have made my life more liveable. She has accepted appoints far out of her regular office hours, and is always available when I’m need. I have been her patient for over 10 years, and in different capacities (individual and group settings).

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.
