Deb has a wonderful balance of listening and providing objective, professional and encouraging advice. I felt comfortable and at ease in the very first session and was able to discuss issues... regarding relationships and internal personal issues. Highly recommend her for any occasion and sound advice.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Convinced I had one issue, reconciling my motherís suicide, and as soon as it was resolved my life would be perfect; I quickly came to the realization thatís not how it works. Deb has been remarkable... in helping me cope with the guilt, sadness, emptiness, etc. that can follow this type of event. Through this journey, many things have happened both uplifting and difficult, yet she has always given me tangible strategies for managing my emotional and physical state. She is and will be passionately connected to your recovery, and I am grateful to have her. You will be too!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

I found Deb through Kudzu, and read extensively through her reviews. I was pleased with what I read, and am even more so with what I've experienced. She is calming, intuitive, and perceptive. If you feel comfortable talking with her on the phone making an appointment, you will love her in person.

I have seen many therapists over the years with the same results- we discover and discuss the issues and nothing is resolved. I continue to have the same issues creep up time and again. Working with Deb has been different and I am so grateful for that. The combination of energy/body work has opened up a whole new area of exploration into "ME". I have found the "ME" that created, encouraged and magnified the traits I want/need to change. The change has not been easy but it has been worth it. Deb does not allow me to bypass the process but helps me through everything. Thank you Deb for everything!

I was a wreck before finding Deb. Major depression, major anxiety, low self-esteem, eating disorder, overweight, boundary issues... Deb has been able to get through to the real me... the real issues and solutions. She has walked with me, encouraging me when needed, gently nudging me when needed, and willing to work with other practicioners if I needed to bring in 'extra help'. I've seen many therapists throught the years, but I will STAY with Deb. She IS THAT GOOD. I have coping tools now that I would never have had without Deb's insight and guidance.
Deb is a very skilled, highly intuitive, authentic and compassionate therapist. It is clear that she is very committed to her work...to supporting others in their healing. I have seen a number of therapists in my life and the work that Deb and I have done together has had probably the most impact on my life. The qualities I mentioned above in addition to her combining body-work with talk therapy is a powerful combination. I have referred others to her and will continue to do so. I am grateful for the ways that Deb has supported me in becoming more of who I truly am.
I have been to many therapists in my 39 years and I will tell you Deb is the best! She really is able to help you figure out how to deal with your issues, helps you grow as a person so very much, makes you feel incredibly comfortable, and on top of it is very kind hearted! She exhibits such professionalism and skill when it comes to being a therapist. She will point out things that you may not think of that results in those A HA moments! She has helped me through so very much in my life and I truly don't know how I would have gotten through it all without her. She was referred to me and highly reccommended, and I refer her regularly. You will not be dissapointed with her, I assure you!

Dear happytravelbug, Thank you so much for you kind words and your vote of confidence in me! Creating a comfortable and safe environment for clients to do their work is very important to me so I am glad you have had that experience in our work together. I'm truly glad I have been able to provide you with the support and insight you have needed to grow. Deb
Deb is adept at knowing when to be comforting and when to lend a push through the hard emotional work of healing. She is compassionate, authentic, and grounded--the type of person who you'd want to be by your side. I couldn't imagine taking on my healing journey without her.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share with others your experience of working with me. Knowing when to be comforting and when to push actually comes from being present, compassionate, and authentic in our relationship together - all the things you mentioned - so you got the essence of this perhaps without even realizing it! Thanks for the opportunity to share this experience together. Deb
Deb is a compassionate listener who has an incredibly gentle way of guiding you along life's most difficult journeys. Her honesty and caring nature are unfailing, allowing you to see clearly within yourself the answers that you thought didn't exist. It is for these reasons that I recommend her as simply the best therapist I've worked with.

Thanks captionmom! I always seek to listen compassionately and supportively to whatever anyone presents, to keep my heart open and help you feel safe and welcome and accepted. Ultimately my goal is to empower you to listen to yourself, trust yourself and make choices for yourself, because that's where the true healing is, that you can do this for yourself. I'm so glad that I have been helpful to you in this way. Deb
My experience with Deb goes back a number of years, each time I am faced with some various and sundry life transition. She has been a reliable and constant source of wisdom and insight which has helped me see my way through the emotional/spiritual forest into clear vistas. She is patient and accepting throughout the process, and is remarkably capable of responding to what is needed--offering her challenges to me to rise to a higher/deeper awareness with great compassion and kindness.

I have great respect for Deb Elkinís experience, warmth and skill as a psychotherapist. She creates a relaxed, nonjudgmental environment. Her approach helps to empower the people with whom she works, and she genuinely cares about her clients. She works with people at a deep level to help them heal from old wounds. I recommend her highly.

I used Deb's services recently for marriage issues. She really tackled the issue head on and helped me to better understand my own thoughts and feelings. Even though my husband did not attend, Deb offered unbiased suggestions that actually worked amazingly well. Further, I know the vibe one gives off when I can trust them to give honest feedback; Deb has that vibe. Her integrity is very reassuring. I highly recommend her.

Deb is a wonderful therapist. She's helped me look at certain situations with different eyes, and has been very intuitive with helping me understand some of the issues I'm facing. Her approach is kind and understanding, but firm when needed.

I have been seeing Deb for almost a year now and don't know what I would do without her. I was always hesitant to sit and talk with anyone but she allowed me to feel comfortable and open up. This has been a trying year and Deb has helped me through it all.

Working with Deb Elkin has really helped me get through my divorce. Her insights and advice are invaluable. She truly seems to understand human interactions and various personalities, which helps me better understand what went wrong in my marriage and how to move through the divorce into a new life.
