Deborah is the real deal. She knows what she's doing and is gentle yet can challenge me too. I'm learning from her, but I'm also comforted in her presence which is a rare experience.

Deborah has helped me work through several issues in the past six months, from a problem with addiction in my marriage to a grief issue relating to the traumatic death of one of my grandsons. It surprises me every time how she manages to help me draw things out from somewhere deep inside, and shine some light on it. She did an intervention with me helping me deal with my recent trauma which gave me so much more peace and the ability to deal with it in a healthier way. She is kind, gentle and very responsive to what I need on any given day, even if I sometimes struggle to put it in words. I am grateful for her help.
