Kind, caring and compassionate therapist
I found Deb around this time last year when I felt like the ground was giving way under my feet. I have substantial family-of-origin issues to deal with which I knew had crippled my self-esteem and were affecting my personal relationships and work. I thought I had dealt with them because externally life seemed to be on track, but internally, I felt like the calm before the storm. I wasn't happy and I needed help. It is not easy for me to trust someone with my fears, flaws and insecurities but Deb is easy to open up to - she is nonjudgmental and gives her opinions clearly and compassionately. Things got worse (work related issues came to a head) before they got better, but with Deb's steadying influence, I was able to think through my reactions to some challenging situations. She helped me understand myself better. She is extremely empathetic and can also gently and kindly nudge me towards facing my fears. She has helped me grow and heal, and while I have a long way to go, I feel like I've at least begun that journey. I am so incredibly grateful for her warmth and guidance through this process.
