I love working with Deena because she is both incredibly supportive and also flexible. She allows me to guide our conversations but when the going gets tough she is willing to ask me some harder questions. Deena is very good at helping me set boundaries, something I've been wanting to work on. I also very much appreciate that she is always on time, very present for our sessions, and just in general very reliable.

She’s so kind and understanding and just all around makes me feel at ease and open to talking! The progress I’ve made since seeing Deena is more than I could have expected.

Deena is amazing. I've never worked with a better counselor. She listens very carefully and recalls information weeks later. She's very good at her job and I'm extremely thankful for her expertise. She is definitely making a difference in my life for the better.

Starting therapy with Deena has been life changing. Digging into past issues I would sweep under the rug, and not truly deal with issues-she has helped guide me into more healthy coping way!

Deena makes me feel very comfortable. I was very nervous. But, now I can talk to her with no problem.
