“Deb has a wonderful way of putting you at ease just by being herself. We began to talk freely and I started to feel ease and clarity creep in.  By the end of our time together I found that my fears were no longer in charge. The relief and freedom I felt was amazing!”


“Powerful healing work that is simple, direct and loving.”


“This work has really helped my relationship with my daughter.”


“Thanks for teaching me that my empathic feelings weren’t working for me. I am learning tools that help me let go of how others are feeling so I can get in touch with my own. Life has gotten easier! I am able to be in crowds of people now, and my relationship with my husband is getting so much better.”


“Deb has truly been a bright light for me. She has helped me to step into my true self.”


“Deb makes it simple to profoundly change judgment and ego by understanding perspective and learning acceptance. Truly life changing!”


“Deb helped me get past blockages and choose to allow myself to live the highest possible life- to choose self-love.”


“My work with Deb completely shifted my mindset. It has given me a new group of skills to handle different, difficult situations. I would highly recommend Deb and her classes and one on one sessions.”


“Amazing work! Personally, I have broken down so many blocks and old pain that I was carrying around since childhood. Since working with Deb, I’ve experienced inner peace, confidence in myself and in my words. I always explain Deb as a spiritual wizard.”
