Client feedback and reflections:

Psychotherapy Clients:

Words cannot describe my gratitude for the impact your guidance and our work together has had and continues to have on my daily life and frame of mind. Thank you for teaching me about presence, essential goodness and that I have choices in my relationship to life’s events, woes, and joys. Also thanks for the wisdom of looking for delights. Thank you.”

I want to thank you for moving through so much with me…Helping me to find so much inner strength, compassion and love. I feel ready for the next chapter.”

“It struck me today how much happier and at ease I am in my mind. So much of that new found peace is rooted in my time spent with you. Thank you for your empathy, open-hearted listening, and wisdom.”

“Deb is one of the most intuitive people that I know. With her caring way, I’ve been able to reconnect with who I am on all levels: emotional, mental, physical and spiritual, and to understand myself to an even greater degree, which has brought me deep personal joy. She is a true gift for anyone who chooses to work with her.”

“Deb is skilled at holding space for healing work to unfold. Through my work with Deb, I learned the depths of the wisdom of my body in a new and profound way. It was particularly helpful that she incorporated mindfulness techniques and gentle movement during our (psychotherapy) sessions. Through a relationship of trust and respect, she supported me to make decisions and guided me through fear, into darkness, and back to light with wisdom and immense kindness.”

Therapeutic Yoga and Mindfulness Client:

“I worked with Deb weekly, for 2 years, learning yoga and specifically trauma-informed yoga during a most painful period of my life. I had always dabbled in the ‘mind/body connection,’ yet was trained as a traditional therapist years ago…..yet….it wasn’t enough. Learning yoga with a trauma-informed ‘coach’…..taught me to truly appreciate the stillness and ‘knowing’ of my body to bring me back to the present moment and to ease my anxiety, fears, losses and body image issues. I so appreciated Deb’s insight, her wisdom, her ability to hear me, her empathy…over the two years. I had such body image issues and would not set foot in a yoga class before I met her and am now free to live in my body. Deb taught me so much more than yoga. And I am so, so grateful.”

Yoga class participant:

Thank you so much for leading me (and lots of others) in such  gentle, introspective and supportive yoga classes. The Monday classes you’ve led have helped me deepen my own practice of weaving together the threads of my Buddhist mindfulness and lovingkindness practices with a steady and soothing asana practice. Your way of sharing these practices have inspired me on my own journey of exploring what sort of yoga teacher I might be as well. Thank you so much.
