Specialties and Services

Painted Rocks

Dr. Lubetkin provides therapy that integrates the mind, body, and spirit of each individual.

A recent article published by the American Psychological Association, "Yoga as a Practice Tool," cites the growing body of research documenting the psychological benefits of yoga. Integrating other modalities into traditional talk therapy accomplishes more in the therapy, and has been found to "…help strengthen social attachments, reduce stress, and alleviate anxiety, depression, and insomnia."

She also offers private group and individual sessions for acute and specific trauma. Recently, Deborah travelled to Parkland, Florida after the February 14, 2018 school shooting. She provided a Therapeutic LifeForce Yoga class for Trauma to some of the teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and also a private group session in the home of one of the victims' families.

Deborah has also introduced the community of Ofakim, Israel to the therapeutic benefits of LifeForce Yoga. She has taught LifeForce Yoga classes in this community for the last 5 years, providing classes to soldiers in the Israeli Army, at-risk parent-child dyads, adolescent girls with trauma histories, resiliency center classes, children and teens of the community dealing with trauma from war & terrorism, and many more. This past year, Deborah led an Introductory Workshop for Medical and Mental Health professionals on the uses of LifeForce Yoga for Trauma. A full training is also being planned.
