Deborah’s areas of specialization are couples counseling and weight management/disordered eating, but her clinical training and experience since 1997 have qualified her to be an effective counselor in a wide range of problems. Deborah received a Masters of Education degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Florida with a specialization in Family Therapy.

Additionally, her training from the renowned Rogers Memorial Hospital Eating Disorders Program provided her the opportunity to co-found a successful counseling and nutrition center in 2006. Along with a multi-disciplinary team, she offered comprehensive outpatient treatment for individuals that had a problematic relationship with food and body image. There, she developed curriculum for body image and recovery workshops and is currently offering the same groups at Relationship Resolutions.

Deborah provides a partnership approach with clients to successfully identify their goals for change, discover inner strengths, enhance insight, and transform how they cope with current struggles. Her ethical manner and passion for helping individuals is derived from the belief that each person is unique and has the ability to find the voice and skills needed to improve their quality of life.

What Others Share

I have been in therapy in the past at other groups, but my current therapist has been able to “really” pinpoint the roots of my issues and has worked very diligently to help educate me on breaking free from what binds me.

Deborah has been a true Godsend to our family in helping us understand our family dynamics and in helping my daughter come full-circle with her eating disorder. Deborah's demeanor and tactfulness in how she helps families recognize their shortcomings is truly an asset on her part in being so successful in helping others. Deborah will always remain in our hearts as a very special person. She went above and beyond her call of duty on a couple of occasions to help our family and we are forever grateful.

Amazing staff! They (both Dana and Deborah) went above and beyond to cater to needs of my relational developement and growth. I will forever thank them for impacting my life in such a positive way!
