Deborah Lefferts, LMFT
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
With over 32 years experience as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have extensive knowledge and experience working with individuals and couples around a broad range of issues.
My approach is solution and goal oriented while utilizing knowledge of life history as appropriate to deepen the understanding of emotional problems and to empower change. My personality is warm yet engaged and active in the therapeutic process. Among my specialties working with individuals are depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trouble in relationships and self esteem issues. My expertise in working with couples includes teaching communication and conflict resolution skills and methods to heal from extramarital affairs, rebuild trust, intimacy and marital enrichment. I primarily utilize Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches in my work.
