Deborah is so kind and calming. She knows exactly how to redirect me when my thoughts, words, or outlook is negative. She has suggested helpful skills and reading materials as I begin to learn how to overcome fear, anxiety, and panic. She provides affirmations that encourage me. I am just beginning this journey to overcome and heal my mind and will remain hopeful in the hard days that God will continue to use Deborah to help guide me with her advice and wisdom.

Deborah is attentive, understanding and make wonderful suggestions to help me through this difficult situation. I really enjoy our sessions.

Written by M.I. on Jun 08, 2022 after therapy with Deborah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, and grief

Deborah shared some great ways to look at where I am with my grief process. I kept thinking i was in a "stage" of grief, yet I was all over the place. Falling in and out of categories and wondering why I was not progressing, or why I seemed to fall backwards. That wasn't the case. I know everyone processes differently and that I will NEVER get over losing my son but being able to talk this through with her professional advice, experience and wisdom sure is helping

But more than that, she helps pinpoint the problem and just as importantly, helps figure out the SOLUTION.

Deborah is absolutely amazing. She makes me feel like coming to BetterHelp is a safe place. She provided me with really good advice and helps me to view myself in a way I didn’t before. It is also really nice having someone listen to me and she is great at that. She instantly made me feel comfortable with me and opening up to her about things I don’t even disclose to people around me or close to me. I appreciate all the effort she puts into helping me.

Deborah has been my therapist for a short while but in that short time, she has helped me to reframe my mindset and helped me through some recent stressful life transitions. She always greets me with a smile and approaches each session openly, allowing me to speak to whatever I need that day. She is kind, judgment-free, and professional. I also love her Friday quotes!
