About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 18 years of experience working as a therapist. I live in Miami, Florida and I received my Master's Degree in Social Work from Florida International University. I have helped clients cope with many problems including relationship issues, parenting concerns, divorce, anxiety, career difficulties, stress and so many more. I provide therapy for children, adolescents, adults, families and couples.

I believe that every client has different needs, so while I am always empathetic and compassionate, I personalize my approach for each individual client. Some of the methods I utilize are talk therapy, humanistic approach, cognitive behavioral therapy and many more. Most importantly, I provide an atmosphere where the client feels safe to share their feelings and challenges.

It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help and I am happy to be here to help you on this journey.

Deborah is great. I cannot recommend her more highly. She makes you feel at ease and like you can open up and be yourself. I have been able to connect with her and it finally feels like someone understands me.

Really appreciated Deborah's approach to my issues. I was able to confide in her easily plus she listens. I wasn't expecting online counseling to feel was so professional. I didn't feel as if I needed to sit face-to-face and talk to someone to understand why I wanted to have counseling sessions.

Deborah's best quality is how personable she is. She doesn't make you feel psychoanalyzed, but instead makes you feel like you're talking to someone close who is there to listen and provide experienced and insightful help and strategies to get through what it is you're working on. Super happy to be working with Deborah!

Unlike others, I felt an immediate connection with Deb. She gets me and seems to understand my unique situation. I feel her combination of training and real life experience makes all the difference. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending her to others . If you need compassion, caring, help, advice, and wise counsel give her a try. You’ll be glad you did.

I really like talking to Deborah. She offers different ways of looking at things, and helps me to remember the positives rather than the negatives.

I've only been on this site for a short amount of time but Deborah has been a massive help for my mental health and getting me through my issues. Making me feel incredibly comfortable without any judgment, I feel I can freely talk without thinking I'm insane
