Working with Debra has been so helpful! Her input and guidance is so spot on even in just the short time I’ve been working with her. She always reads my journal entries which is helpful because it makes our video sessions so productive. It’s very clear she is experienced because her perspective is so well rounded. I would recommend Debra to anyone.

We have only met once but we have corresponded several times. It is a new relationship. But I feel very comfortable with and confident in Debra. She seems very good at what she does. I’m very happy with the way things are going.

It’s to early for a real review but I will say that it seems like we are a good match and that she is more than capable of helping me with the many issues and traumas I have and she does not back down she is not afraid to confront my issues and traumas which are deep, very hard, and very traumatic. She stands up to them with the confidence that she will help me through this which gives me the hope I need
