Powerful Conversations Exploring Truth

Personal Growth



Life’s longing for your voice, your opinions, your unique perspective, and your gifts – without you showing up as you, we’re all missing out.

You Matter.

I want you to get it deep in your soul that:

  • You aren’t as alone as you feel
  • You being you and you healing yourself is radical activism
  • Raising a child is the most sacred work you can do and LITERALLY is creating the future of humanity
  • Publicly living the life you’re meant to live rather than the life that you feel like you’re “supposed to be living” is an act of bravery and the path to true satisfaction and joy
  • Transformation happens when we take the tiny courageous steps on an intentional path rather than living our lives on our ego’s autopilot

Exploring the inner territory of you

Shining a light on the parenting path

Navigating how we relate to life and others

A life not wasted

I believe that doing our inner healing work is the ultimate form of activism.

Sometimes living the life we’re meant to live is the exact opposite of what we’re told to do – it’s going against the grain – and it’s unique to us.

I want everyone to realize that they’re loved for who they are and not what they do.

Underneath the facade of having it all together, I found the real me: where I discovered my gifts, my voice, and my truth.

I finally stopped trying to be everything to everyone and decided to simply be me.

Inside-Out Activists

This is a place for those of us who know that the path to heal this planet and the people is from the inside out – starting with us, extending out to our family and then to the world. Together, we’ll push our edges and build the fortitude to be leaders in this wild and uncertain world (and not be consumed by it). The most radical statement we can make right now is to turn inward and to shine the light on this path for others. We’ve been taught a story of separateness and co-dependence and together we’re re-writing the story to be one of interdependence and oneness. And by doing so, we’ll heal our hearts, families, relationships and the planet. We are free thinkers and lighthouses – curious, seeking truth, busting fear-based belief systems, and trailblazing together – finding a new way forward.

“Deb’s is by far the best all-around advice I’ve ever received.”

I’ve had a lot of counseling, personal coaching, and nutritional consulting in my life and Deb’s is by far the best all-round advice I’ve ever received. Deb touches on all these aspects plus she adds the spiritual component so I find it helpful on so many levels. I eagerly await my next session.

“She has helped me to transform my life. I am more happy and at peace.”

I’ve only been seeing Deb for a few months now, but she has really helped to transform my life. I was in a slump personally and professionally, and I am now more motivated in my business and more happy and at peace in my personal life. Deb has helped me focus on what’s important and to accept what is. Every time I leave her office, I feel lighter and content. She has such a warm and caring way in her approach, and I would highly recommend her.

“Deb can really help you discover and create what you want most in your life.”

I felt very ‘at ease’ to work with Deb – she is so genuine and authentic and anyone would feel so welcome around her. During our work together, I moved forward in my business start up. With Deb’s guidance I hired a website designer and tapped into many resources that Deb referred me to to help me set a firm foundation to start my business. I truly enjoyed Deb’s abundance of wisdom, resources and, most of all, her compassion. We used a tool called Basecamp that was really helpful – I could look back at what we discussed in our session if I forgot and it kept me on track towards my goals. I would absolutely recommend Deb to my mom friends who are needing some support, women entrepreneurs starting a business or anyone who just wanted a new career and was not sure where to start. Deb can really help you discover and create what you want most in your life!

“I definitely feel that my stress level has declined considerably from where it was a year ago…I am kinder to myself and making more time for myself.”

Deb’s style is very gentle, supportive and warm. She is terrific at breaking the challenges down into bite-size pieces and offering suggestions to overcome challenges. Many times making change feels so overwhelming that many of us just back away from making the change. Instead, she has an ability to help the person with baby steps that make challenges seems manageable. I feel I have grown in my ability to manage a number of factors in my life. I definitely feel that my stress level has declined considerably from where it was a year ago and I believe the work I have done with Deb has greatly contributed toward that. I have noticed that I am “kinder” to myself and making more time for myself. I would definitely say that I feel more peaceful generally.
