I found Dr. Deb while searching for a therapist with a holistic treatment aspect. When I started seeing Dr. Deb, I was taking antidepressants and sleeping medicines. After a few months, I was off all prescription medicines, sleeping well and feeling much better. Dr Deb has also helped me in our sessions to recognize my strengths and increase my confidence. I plan to continue my journey with Dr Deb to find the peaceful existence that I am searching for.
