Integrative Health Coach, LMT, RH
Deborah grew up in Minneapolis in a family where healing, meditation
and philosophy were a part of the everyday experience. She has 25 years experience as an allied health professional, holds a degree in naturopathy from Southern Cross University in Australia, and completed her post-grad certificate at Duke Integrative Medicine in Health and Wellness Coaching. Deborah uses evidence-based approaches to champion you in rediscovering your own inner strengths and resources. She partners with you to draw on your own innate wisdom to nurture sustainable, life-long changes. The outcome is the skills, understanding and commitment to take charge of your own wellbeing, and to live daily with greater vitality, steadiness and purpose. In 2019, Deborah's teenage son passed away suddenly and this has deepened her work immeasurably in supporting others through grief and loss and life challenges of all kinds. Her approach is heart-centered and whole person, and the areas of focus are always her client's choice, and include all realms of life. Deborah has a strong background in music, body awareness, and creative expression; which she integrates into her offerings. She understands that her work is rooted in "walking her talk” and bringing healing into everyday life. Deborah and her partner live in Seattle with their children, dogs, cat & bees.

Deborah helped me so much through my journey with...well with everything! Especially during my times trying to get pregnant. Her work made a huge difference in my life, my habits and my ability to honor myself in little ways that make a big difference. I had twins not long after our time together and then a third little blessing arrived one year after. I thank her for her authenticity and have the utmost respect for and hold such a high value for her great work

Deborah embodies the loving presence that she teaches in her work. During my many sessions with Deborah, I have felt subtle and profound shifts in the energy in various organs, allowing the way I hold myself and my story to shift into more openness, trust, and integration in my being. I experience Deborah as a teacher who holds my well-being with fierce love, encouraging me to take hold of the truth of the way things are, and to trust that completely. Anyone who gets a chance to work with Deborah is fortunate!
The best way to capture what Deborah does is to say, as a healer, she held the space for me to figure out how to awaken and heal myself. It is hard to find words to say how grateful I feel for the enlightenment I gained through our discussions - about the way to be still and gentle with myself, and to open up and be vulnerable. One of the things I've appreciated the most is her perfect mix of "out there" and “real.” Working with Deborah really changed me at my core.
