Incredibly caring, very helpful, and very open. I truly enjoyed working with Deborah.
I appreciate Deborah very much. She seems to get me and understands my issues when I don't seem to.
Very nice and caring.
I enjoy working with Deborah. She is very caring, and understands my concerns. She responds very quickly to my comments and asks me very thought-provoking questions. She's great!
Deborah Perry is a kind-hearted person. She took my symptoms and problems seriously and helped me get through some of my panic/anxiety attacks. She makes me feel comfortable and unashamed of my issues that she's helping me work through. She is a wonderful therapist that keeps in touch and checks in regularly to see how you're doing, and if there is anything she can do to help. I truly enjoy working with her.
Deborah is very friendly, honest, and funny. She makes me feel comfortable and doesn't judge me.
Ms. Perry has been extremely kind and sympathetic! She is always ready to lend a listening ear and encouragement.
