Freedom to Focus

The future of humanity depends on each of us showing up courageously as our true selves, expressing our gifts, and living in alignment with what matters most to us.


I know we can find joy, meaning, and freedom within the constraints of our lives. I believe that doing the inner healing work is the ultimate form of activism. And I believe that how we relate to one another can be revolutionary. We’re all more powerful than we think we are.

I help people bust through all of the limiting shoulds, and pressure to perform and conform, to find and get on their own life path and then to take tiny courageous action in their lives toward being more authentic, showing up more, doing what they want to be doing and having the impact they know they’re meant to have.

This is you taking your power back.

This is what I call inside out activism.


I’ve found that there are 5 things that stop us from doing what we want to do in our lives:


Its Unconscious

We never fully allow ourselves to ask the question “what do I want?” or “am I living fully?” or to look at the simmering resentment about your life. Maybe we don’t even know who we are so we don’t know what we want if we do ask ourselves that question. Sometimes it’s scary to look too closely, so we imprison ourselves with our shoulds and cants.

We’re Unclear

When we do see that we want something else, we often struggle because we don’t really know exactly what it is that we want, can’t define it, feel unworthy, impose why we shouldn’t or can’t again. We’re not sure about our priorities, what’s important to us, the contribution we want to make, the impact we were born to have – in many areas of our lives… and how to live a life that we won’t regret in the future. This is where Expansion Power Hours come in. Through thought partnership, we get clear together.

We Don’t Know Where to Start

Once we get clear, then we feel frustrated because we don’t know how to get from here to there, it seems insurmountable and we don’t know where to start. This is why I offer my Align & Activate program where you walk away with a clear action plan.

We’re Afraid or Lack Skills

Once we’ve gotten clear and have a plan, we often realize that we’re lacking the ‘courage to climb” because we’re either stuck in FEAR or are lacking skills. Spend a month with me developing the Courage to Climb and we’ll shore up your fears, limitations, skill gaps and other obstacles that keep you from taking action. Often it’s because it seems too big and daunting. We break things down to the tiniest courageous steps.

Lack of Support

Sometimes it’s a lack of support and feeling like we’re the only ones trying to go against the grain, to do what we want to do rather than what we should be doing and living our lives fully. This is why I have a Facebook group for you so you can be surrounded by other people finding a new way forward.

From Following Their Path

to loving yours


When you’re ready to craft a life or a business where you don’t have to sacrifice one thing for another. Where you’re clear about your priorities and the contribution you want to make in the world and you live aligned with that – from the big impact you want to make, down to the way you show up in everyday interactions. And when you want to take action and really be who you’re meant to be while doing what you’re here to do….

Trusted Consultant To Businesses & Startups Including

“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.

Jen Lanciault, Certified Yoga Instructor

“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.

Lynn Werner

“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!

Heather Heselton

“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.
