I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida with 20-years-experience. I have worked with clients in a variety of settings from community mental health, to private practice, to residential substance abuse. My clients have presented with many different concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, panic disorders and addiction to name a few.
My firm belief is that despite the life experiences a person may have had, they are never broken. My job is to point them toward that healthy part of themselves and help it to strengthen. My goal is to help people rediscover their innate peace, happiness, and well-being.
My counseling style brings together cognitive, holistic, and integrative. I don’t have a cookie-cutter approach to counseling, because every individual is different, and so the counseling approach needs to be flexible to develop the best fit for that person. I see the counseling relationship as a partnership where we work together creating a plan of treatment that will help you work toward goals that are important to you.
Counseling can be a big step into a future that is more fulfilling. Let’s make your life the best it can be.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Deborah is very warm and compassionate and easy to communicate with. She gives constructive and practical advice .
Deborah has become a light in challenging times of managing so much as a mom, boss-lady, and entrepreneur. We are aligned in our life philosophies, which makes it such a delight. She communicates well, can get at the core of whatever challenge is on the table that day, and has great insights to offer in a caring and thoughtful manner.
I have been working with Deborah for over 3 months. She is very good listener. I found her sessions very useful and strongly recommend her.
Deborah is a teacher, guide and mentor that I am grateful fell into my life when nothing made sense. She lifted me out of experiencing depression for the first time and breathed light into the tiny voice of wisdom inside me. She doesn't give tools and walk away; she nourishes, discusses and gives a little gentle push to live the most beautiful life! I am so grateful for you and all you have taught me Deb!
Debbie is great
Deborah is incredibly kind, understanding and patient. She makes me feel so comfortable in our sessions and I look forward to speaking with her. I have nothing but high praise to give her. She has made therapy enjoyable and challenging and healthy. Thank you Deborah!!
Deborah is a great, empathic listener. Very intelligent, eclectic and wise. Ms. Deb is an outstanding counselor! She was able to helped me overcome obstacles in all the areas of my life where I needed counsel. I would highly recommend her!
I can’t say enough good things about Debbie. She is a very good listener and always positive no matter what.
I've just had my final session with Deborah and I will miss working with her very much. In three short months I feel like she has helped me transform into an entirely new, healthy person. I went in with anger issues bundled up with low self esteem and inability to communicate effectively. Deborah helped me learn how to shift my thoughts and control my emotions. My relationships with everyone in my life are much stronger as a result. Thank you Deborah for being part of my journey, I'm so grateful to have gotten to work with you!
Deborah is highly experienced, and intuitive. She also has a wonderful sense of humor. She is such a great Therapist...I could not have asked for any better!
Deborah was amazing, she’s helped me find ways to deal with my anger issues and self esteem issues that I’ve carried for most of my life in such a short amount of time. I would recommend her to anyone who struggles with these same issues. I knew I wasn’t a lost cause but I never thought Deborah would help me learn to deal with them and solve these problems so quickly. She’s definitely amazing at her job. 10/10 recommend.
We did not have much time to spend on counseling, as I only just recently signed up. However, she was great in the time we had. I did not cancel my membership as anything against Deborah or Betterhelp whatsoever. I had nothing but positive experiences on Betterhelp in the brief time I was there.
Deborah is extremely empathetic and very insightful. She has helped me break down my overwhelming thoughts and come to realize my own power. I felt completely torn, broken, and overwhelmed when I first began sessions with her. So far I am seeing the light and taking the control back over my thoughts as well as putting in the work to rewire my thought patterns. She has given me the perspective and tools to move into the life I've always wanted. I highly recommend working with her.
I would recommend Deborah to any of my friends that are going through similer circumstances. I have already recommended this website to some of my friends.
Deborah has an extremely good understanding of my circumstances. Thus she recommends methods to assist me that are totally appropriate.
