I help couples strengthen their relationships and deepen their connections. Relationships aren’t easy. We bring emotional baggage from our pasts that continue to impact us as adults, individually and in our relationships. When couples first get together, the relationship is easy, fresh and romantic. Dining out at trendy restaurants, movie dates and great sex. Over time, life’s stressors set in; finances, careers, in-laws, medical problems and children. The truth is relationships can be messy, frustrating and tremendously disappointing. 

So how do you get the magic back? Using effective holistic and science-based interventions, I teach couples how to communicate productively, enabling them to have difficult conversations about finances, infidelity, intimacy and difference of opinions. We work collaboratively to address trust issues and resentments, which opens the door to healing, forgiveness, renewed commitment and passion. In my therapy sessions, there is no “bad guy” and blame is never the focus. 

I provide a safe environment that is free of judgement and criticism. Couples feel comfortable discussing personal issues, needs and desires. I offer Couples’ Intensives that are appreciated by couples who want to get a jump-start on the counseling process. Intensives are ‘fast-track’ couples counseling that can produce rapid change. Intensives range from 1-3 days, depending on the specific needs of each couple. The extended time that Intensives provide, gives clients the opportunity to “unpack” all of the major problems that have been creating sadness, chaos and anger. I am able to quickly identify the core issues, enabling the healing process to begin almost immediately.

    After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Vermont, Deborah received her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from American International College. She has Certified Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and expertise in Conflict Resolution and Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT). Deborah has additional training in Substance Abuse and Addiction and Body-Centered Psychotherapy, from the Hartford Family Institute. 

    What People Are Saying

    I reached out to Deborah over a year ago. I was at an all-time low in both my personal and professional life. I was dealing with deep-seated conflicts with toxic personalities. One of my business partners was bullying me, making false accusations, and exhibiting threatening behavior. Ultimately, this affected my mental health, physical health, my overall happiness and sense of well-being. 

    I lacked the self-confidence needed to stand-up for my values and lacked the self-worth to believe I deserved better. The professional help and support Deborah gave me changed my life both personally and professionally. Deborah empowered me to articulate my feelings and helped me understand the issues at hand in a way that gave me the clarity necessary to move forward. After a short time working with her, my self-confidence improved tremendously. I began feeling fulfilled and content. Our work together translated to my interactions with my co-workers as well as within my personal life. I became self-assured and calm in high pressure situations. Because I can now stand up for myself, especially to this toxic partner, I am more productive at work and capable of handling setbacks and adversities in a constructive way.

    Deborah helped me find myself. 

    Deborah has the instinctual ability to know what her client needs at any given time, and how to best tailor each session accordingly. I credit a lot of who I am today as a result of the help she has provided for me. I plan to continue my work with Deborah and I look forward to continued personal and professional growth. I recommend Deborah to anyone looking to improve any aspects of their business or personal life. 

    C.D.

    Deborah is professional, responsive and most importantly – she is 100% relatable. She is so in-tune with her clients expressions and body language that they don’t have to speak too much for her to know what’s going on! She has an easy way of sparking conversations; making one feel comfortable and safe; and there is a willingness to connect, as opposed to just being a sounding board. I highly recommend Deborah Krevalin 🙂
