Stamford Family Therapy offers a therapeutic environment which fosters self healing through helping the client identify and implement the tools available to enhance their lives.
“As humans we have an innate capacity to learn, and therefore I strive to help my clients gain the knowledge of the tools available to them to enhance and better their lives.”
Deena gained immeasurable experience while a therapist, and eventually as program director of the Level III schizophrenic program at Hall- Brooke Hospital in the '90s, and then during her tenure in the early 2000s at Silver Hill Hospital. These experiences enabled her to quickly diagnose patients and help them commence their quest toward obtaining the tools to heal and move forward.
