We can all use some help at one point in time or another.


Seeking help for relationship struggles, sexual problems, anxiety, panic attacks, feeling depressed or ‘stuck’, career difficulties, is a great step forward towards feeling better.  Therapy offers an opportunity to take a fresh look at ourselves and discover what obstacles we can clear out of the way in order to make different choices, develop greater strength and resiliency in our lives.

About Deborah J. Fox, M.S.W.

I’ve been practicing for over 30 years, with expertise in helping people enjoy their relationships and lives again. I see people individually, in couples and in groups.

My style of couples counseling, rooted in Imago Therapy,  is a particularly effective form of couples counseling for anyone in a committed relationship regardless of gender. Marriage counseling helps couples develop safe and more loving relationships, in which pain and conflict are turned into an opportunity for growth and greater closeness.

I am a Certified Sex Therapist. I offer help with significant sexual difficulties, as well as to those who are looking to improve their sexual lives and rekindle the passion in their relationship.
