About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Texas, New Jersey, and ,soon to be, Florida. I have over 25 years of experience with diverse populations. I have specialized in treating geriatrics, bipolar disease, schizotypal, substance abuse, children, and couples. I also have treated people with abuse and trauma issues. My family has a history of mental health problems that lend to my knowledge of issues that occur in mental illnesses. I know firsthand that it can be difficult to take the first step in getting help! Look at this as a partnership for enriching your life.

I have an open style of communicating and believe that building trust is important in any relationship, including the couple that is working with me. I view all people as deserving respect and treat them as I would want to be treated. I believe our relationship is a partnership with us working as a team to provide success! I am eclectic in my approach drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy, Person-Centered, Self Psychology, Psychodynamic, Family , and Humanistic Therapy. In couples counseling I look to develop communication, trust, and an understanding of each person's goals as well as their goals as a couple.

I look forward to us creating a team for better health! We can have video chats to get to know each other and see if we think we are a fit. The purpose is to help you to be successful in accomplishing the goals we have identified. With work and persistence you will be on the road to a more rewarding and loving life.

Deborah has helped us immensely throughout our relationship's journey. Our ability to communicate has increased dramatically and we're much more patient with each other (these were our primary concerns). We look forward to our appointments each week! Even if we don't have anything specific to talk about, something always manages to come up during our sessions which inevitably makes us feel closer afterward. Very grateful for therapy and Deborah to help us along the way and grow a stronger bond.

Since starting couples counseling with Deborah we have seen a MAJOR change in our relationship. Deborah is extremely efficient and gets to the root of the issue, she also provides multiple exercises and different ways to communicate. Working with Deborah has been amazing for us. Our work with Deborah feels truly personal and I’ve never felt like “just another client”. I enjoy everything she has done for us and continues to do and look forward continuing to work with Deborah. I would 100% recommend Deborah Tome to anyone seeking couples counseling, she has helped us save our marriage and brought back love and spark in our life’s. And for that I will always be truly grateful for her.

Deborah is amazing, she listens to both my partner and I while giving us weekly tasks that are incredibly beneficial and have helped us with our communication. She gives a very open and accepting energy that allows both my partner and I to feel at ease and able to share our true feelings. We love Deborah !

Deborah has been extremely helpful to get our relationship back on track. She has been able to pivot when life threw us curveballs, yet keep us focused on working on us as a couple. She has given us the right tools and advice to be able to grow our relationship. We are in a much better place after being in counseling for a month with Deborah. We would highly recommend Deborah for couples counseling.
