Deissy is the best!

I have been seeing therapists for about 20 years now, with little success. Until I met with Deissy Rosenbaum. ...Read more

It is obvious to me that Deissy deeply cares about my well-being; she combines complex techniques that I have never seen before, resulting in remarkable success. I have been able to remember things from my youth that were long suppressed, and feel much more whole inside. She is very humble, but her talents are quite impressive. I would describe her as patient, soft-spoken, and sensitive to my feelings. I could particularly see her working well with children, and in reality, getting in touch with my inner child was part of what really helped me. She is very easy to talk to, and I’m really happy I found her.
