“After only two weeks working with you I couldn’t believe how much I had already learned, and how lucky I felt to be in your hands. I was sure this experience was going to be a great one and it has exceeded my expectations ten-fold. Words cannot even begin to say how thankful I am, and just how much I appreciate all the love, support, and guidance you showed me over the last six months. I am grateful for your positive, unrelenting energy – I am beyond lucky to have worked with you. Truly.”

“This year has been full of challenges and experiences I would never have predicted. The one thing that was always dependable was your support and encouragement. I know that had you not been my coach, I wouldn’t have been able to survive this crazy year. You taught me so much – how to let go of things out of my control, how to move forward, and how to put my happiness first. I looked forward to every coaching session. Thank you again for being you and helping me discover me!”

“Before working with Debbie, I felt abandoned, disoriented, and victimized by my circumstances. A skilled guide, she helped me to discover that I can make choices about my feelings. Daily, I rely on the practices and tools she gave me to choose to feel calm, focused, and self-assured. With Debbie in my corner I am able to move forward with confidence and a growing sense of joy.”
