She's encouraging and supportive. She helps me see thighs from many angles and is compassionate

Deborah is great. She never gives up on me, even when I can be a little flighty about responding. Even though I don’t always reply, it’s an automatic comfort to know she is right there.

Deborah Unger has exceeded my expectations. She’s gives great advice and shows compassion. I have tried live sessions with therapists before in the past but they always seem to fall short. Talking to Deborah has helped me so much in the past few weeks. She uses cognitive behavioral therapy which I respond well too.
