My boyfriend and I came to Deborah with an issue regarding cheating and she helped us through it better than we could have ever done ourselves. She helped coach us in what to say to each other to really get out all that emotion and feeling toward the subject. She helped us work through each step of the process and even gave us homework to help talk about everything that needed to be said. She also held us both accountable where need be and was a honest and true neutral party. She has helped mend our relationship and honestly created an even deeper and stronger one. We of course aren’t too happy about the cheating that occurred, but we are happy about the outcome and impact it had on our relationship in the end. That is largely to do with Deborah’s great coaching and counseling! 10/10 would definitely recommend. More...

Deborah is amazing! She helped my significant other and I get through the lowest point we’ve ever been in. Her coaching opened my eyes and my relationship has never been the same since I’m the best way possible. I highly recommend.

Great sessions. Made me and my girlfriend really comfortable to be transparent.

Deborah was wonderful to work with! She was an excellent listener, very intuitive, and picked up on things being said from both sides (for couples counseling). She encouraged us to hear things we were not hearing from each other until working with her. And above all, she's a kind and caring person who made us feel comfortable saying ANYTHING that needed to be said - no judgment. She was always on time and never made us feel rushed when the session was nearing the end. I highly recommend her! And thank you, Deborah! More...

Working with Deborah Brown was an amazing experience. She made both my partner and me feel heard, without judgment. I would wholeheartedly recommend Deborah Brown any day of the week for her excellent service!

My fiancé and I were experiencing a bout of miscommunication and extreme frustration. We decided we needed help to navigate a path forward. He did some research and inquired with Deborah. From her first contact with me, I felt safe and reassured. She spoke with me individually to uncover my concerns regarding the relationship and we soon scheduled our first session. She was very balanced in how she addressed both of us. She held each of us accountable for our contributions toward the triumphs and defeats in our partnership. She never expressed favoritism nor did she ever appear to be inserting her personal opinion. One of the components I enjoyed most were the assignments she gave. Some were to be done individually, others as a couple. Every exercise was thought-provoking and growth-inducing. I truly enjoyed each of them. After approximately ten sessions, we are on the path of a more reflective, empathic, communicative union and we owe it to Deborah. We truly do. I am extraordinarily grateful for her professional, engaging and calm demeanor. We will continue to do check-ins with her to keep us on an upward trajectory and I’m grateful to have her as a valuable resource. Many thanks, Deborah! More...

Couples Counseling

Id given up any hope of saving my marriage.
My husband and I had drifted so far apart, most days It felt as if I was living with a stranger.
We'd stopped doing things as a couple, he lived his life and I lived mine.
We'd lost our ability to communicate Im any meaningful way.
When i reached out to Optimal Leap Coaching, i wasn't sure what to expect.
i was surprized to recieve such a quick responce to my call.
Within 30 I recieved a call back from Deborah Brown.
I was so nervous I'd never shared the dark details of my marriage with anyone much less a stranger.
Deborah has a way about her that immediately put my mind at ease. I never once felt judged.
When my husband and I made the decision to go forward and give therapy a chance I was sure our work schedules would be yet another hurdle in attempting to schedule our appointments but Deborah was very understanding and so flexible to accomodate our needs.
From there the magic began to happen.
Every session I learned something new about myself or about my spouce.
Each week we were given more insight into learning the basic skills needed for the honest communication our marriage had lost.
I can't say enough how thankful I am to have found Optimal Leap and Deborah Brown.

We are new to couples counseling. We have been working with Deborah Brown for a couple months now. We both were hesitate about couples counseling. However, I am so happy that we did.

I contacted Deborah for help in communicating in my marriage. The homework she had us do was helpful and eye opening for both my husband and myself. It takes baby steps and a lot of work to not slip back into old habits but I feel like we are getting there. I would highly recommend Deborah for couples coaching. More...

Bring a mom can be tough on my social life. I needed help reconnecting with others professionally and personally. With my mom recently passing I felt stuck. Deborah help me discover easy comfortable paths to becoming more social at work and home. There were even things I wanted to do like get my master degree or take a cruise, that felt like I'll get there someday. Deborah helped me see how I could achieve these longer term goals sooner. We also had a premarital session with my fiance. She help us see the value of prioritizing our date night on the regular. I appreciate the road of success I'm on now thanks to Deborah. I highly recommend her for any situation life brings up. More...

My gf and I were having trouble with communication. Could not figure out how to properly communicate with one another without arguing. After 4 sessions with Deborah, we understand one another much better. I am communicating most of my thoughts and emotions which helps my gf not have crazy reactions toward me. The approach that was given worked well for the both of us. Deborah was great with how quick her responses were to our problems. It was like she knew what to say midway through our sentences. Thank you again Deborah! More...

Deborah helped my husband and I find trust again. We were able to finally be honest with each other and ourselves. Our marriage of 36 years was unraveling. With Deborah’s help, not only were we able to start trusting each other again, but we were able to rekindle romance and intimacy. The “homework” she assigned us was super insightful and practical! I highly recommend her! More...

My partner and I started working with Deborah during an extremely rough period in our relationship. Through our work with Deborah, we have improved our communication, relearned to trust, and be vulnerable with one another.
As a therapist, Deborah is great at addressing issues, giving constructive criticism, and playing fair. She gives appropriate handouts/homework to help continue work in between sessions and she makes sure to pick up right where we left off.
I am happy to say my partner and I are stronger and closer than ever.

Deborah helped my husband and me with ways to improve communication. She was patient and fair, encouraging us to both express ourselves. Deborah gave us tools to better communicate and understand each other better. She also encouraged us to understand each other’s love languages, which up until then, I had not realized were different for each of us. We are still a work in progress but have greatly improved our relationship since meeting with Deborah.

Couples Counseling

Prior to meeting with Deborah, our relationship was rocky and we simply could not get on the same page to effectively communicate. This inability to effectively communicate has us very derailed and literally in the danger zone. I had talked with another counselor prior to Deborah and it seemed to be a colossal waste of time for both the counselor and myself.

Upon my initial call with Deborah, I had such a good feeling that she was indeed the person for my wife and I. I excitedly shared my optimism with my wife later that evening when she returned from the gym. Following our first joint call with Deborah, my wife agreed that we were going to be in great hands. Deborah has the unique ability to make all parties feel relaxed, comfortable and willing to be vulnerable as part of her highly effective sessions. Honestly, we were both amazed at how her effectiveness coupled with her professionalism enabled us to calmly communicate with each other.

If you're looking for a true professional, put your trust in Deborah and start sharing positive experiences with your partner.

Deborah is AMAZING!! I would not have a husband today if it wasn’t for her. My husband and I were on the edge of separation when we were engaged. Deborah’s approach was extremely helpful into opening up our relationship and allowing us to become closer.

Working with Deborah allowed me to see things in a better perspective. The homework she gave us helped us realize the things we love about each other, that there’s a lot of things we can do for date ideas and most importantly, how to make each other feel loved, appreciated and respected. I recommend Deborah to any couple seeking help whether it be communication or even those who are out of touch. Thank you so much for helping and making every response a genuine one and not one most therapists just say or do. More...

Working with Deborah has been a game changing. When we first started our sessions together, I was at a low place in my life. My self esteem and confidence were at an all time low. Through my sessions with Deborah, I was able to find my self worth again. I would even say that it has grown a lot more from what it used to be, even before hitting my low point. More...

I owe a lot of my success to the helpful words and coaching from my counselor. More...
