Testimonials

“Dr. Deena is a woman of these times and to me, she represents all the strength and kindness that is being forgotten in this new generation…I went through a bad time myself and she was a solid friend and did not judge me, like so many others at the time. Lately whenever her name comes up, it’s always something progressively positive and sincere. I’m lucky to know her as a friend and a professional.”

“I have known Dr. Deena in a professional capacity since 1999. We worked side by side treating very complex, challenging cases with individuals and families struggling with serious mental health issues. Dr. Deena, because of her excellent skills as clinician, has demonstrated a unique ability to treat very difficult cases and get positive results when other therapists have been unsuccessful. In addition, during the years I have been working with Dr. Deena she has revealed superior leadership competence in her resolve by making quick decisions in volatile situation, in building and fostering relationships among staff and eliciting trust and dependability from the treatment team.”

– Dr. Giovanni Aponte, Clinical Psychologist

“Dr. Deena has a talent for reading people immediately. She talks to clients in a way that makes them feel safe to open up and ask for help. I cannot count the number of times that she was able to persuade an ambivalent client to stay in treatment. Her past clients include hundreds if not thousands of people who have stayed sober as a result of working with her. I worked under Dr. Deena as a mentor and supervisor for many years…starting as a counselor, intern and licensed therapist and trauma expert. The training under Dr. Deena has been priceless!!!!”
