We each left the meeting empowered to make life choices to take control of our health.”

“Debra is non-judgemental and supportive. She helped me be more understanding with myself and give myself a break, which helped me see life in a more positive light, and my experiences as part of the journey. Debra cultivates a space of empathy and understanding while still holding me accountable and allowing me to grow into the version of myself that I’m seeking.”
Emily C.

“As my Executive Coach, Debra has an innate ability to see through any circumstance and emotional barrier to get at the heart of issues that hold people back, both personally and professionally. Within a few sessions — really, even the first — she helped me to clearly identify the dynamics and relationships in my life that were keeping me from realizing my full potential. These often aren’t easy realizations to come to terms with, but Debra goes beyond just identifying issues; she gracefully and compassionately guides her clients through facing and navigating life’s complexities and hardships. She’s brought so much clarity to my life and career when I could have just continued to exist in chaos.

I have finally reached a point in my life where I feel free to thrive, confident enough to draw boundaries, and in tune enough with myself to learn what my boundaries are. And recently, I received a promotion to a senior-level position that will significantly advance my career. If you want an Executive Coach to improve both your professional and personal life, see Debra. You’ll be so much better and more fulfilled for it. ”
