Our Tallahassee Counselor

Meet Deborah

Deborah M Trosten MA LMHC


I have been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida for 20 years and I have been in the field of Mental Health Counseling for a total of 30 years. Additionally, I am a current and active member of the American Psychological Association (APA).

I obtained my M.A. Degree in Child Development/Clinical Developmental Psychology from Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts in 2000 and I obtained my B.S Degree in Psychology from Florida State University, in Tallahassee, Florida in 1994.

I have been published in, “Adolescence in America An Encyclopedia Volume 1” and in “Adolescence in America An Encyclopedia Volume 2” Copyright 2001.

My experience includes Individual Counseling, Family Counseling, and Marriage/Relationship Counseling in Wilderness Residential Programs, Residential Programs, Outpatient Programs, School-Based Programs, Home Counseling, Telephone Counseling, and Private Practice. I have counseled individuals from every age, background, and life circumstance.

My mission in developing and opening Comprehensive Counseling Services, LLC (CCS, LLC) is to be able to provide counseling in a way that will reach as many individuals in need. My fundamental view is, “Counseling ought to fit into people’s lives; not interfere.” “Counseling ought to be available to all regardless of any and all emotional and mental health needs.”

I offer flexible hours, including evening appointments, on Monday-Friday.
I believe that counseling is a collaborative effort between the Counselor and the Client(s). I am an extremely empathetic, compassionate, genuine, non-judgemental counselor who incorporates many treatment approaches and types of therapies that I will use for each of my client’s very specific individual needs. I am a very client-centered counselor who has years of experience in assessing, diagnosing, and treating my clients pertaining to a wide variety of emotional and mental health needs. I am very goal-oriented with my clients and strive to give my clients the “tools” that they need to become their best selves, to overcome past and current traumas, to re-structure and re-learn positive coping skills and mindsets about themselves, relationships, and even the environments that surround them.

My primary goal is for all of my clients to know that I am ALWAYS here for you and I will ALWAYS want to help you.
