Career Focus: Highlight of my Year
"I worked with Deborah as a coach during a difficult period of professional transition. I am an entrepreneur and I was skeptical anyone would truly understand the situation I was facing. Deborah immediately did and continuously went above and beyond as my executive coach during this transition and beyond. Her guidance helped me grow as an individual and as a professional' - Joel Primus President and Founder - Naked, Inc. and Producer at Raising Global Citizens Film.
Life: Stronger and More Confident
I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help the past year and a half. During our time, I have truly felt myself become a stronger and more confident woman who is gaining control of her mind and emotions. Although I have my moments, I now look at those moments as little challenges or tests to continue practicing rather than letting those moments set me back. I have noticed that I have shorter amounts of time in between my irrational and rational self. I am becoming more and more aware of my actions as they are occurring and feel myself taking initiative to see every moment as it is, rather than seeing it with a cloud of irrationality and emotion.
I've become mindful and present, two things I have wanted to be for a long time. While I am well aware that I'm still a work in progress, I now have the tools I need to continue my practice thanks to your guidance and constant support. I am now a lot closer to a rational, peaceful mindset.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart. - Alexandra R, Director Graphic Design, NYC

Career and Life: A more Mature Perspective
I came to Deborah When I was feeling down and had lost my way in my desire to transition my career. She is a compassionate and proactive listener who understood my journey, enabling me to embrace the idea that even strong women have hardships, and she got me back on track. She has taught me to be positive, kind and resilient, in the face of overcoming a challenge.
In my family relationships, she helped clarify misconceptions I had. The clarification led me to a more mature perspective and helped me let go of anger and strengthen my personal boundaries.
When I started seeing Deborah, I was a control freak. With her help I realized the truth: I was exhausted and exhausting. I was waiting for everything to fall into place before I would take real decisive action. She helped me realized that the one thing that I honestly had control over was myself. Step by Step she taught me to let go of what everyone else was doing or not doing and go after what I wanted without apology. She helped me have the courage to act, and not just talk.
I am grateful that I took a chance on myself to invest in her expertise because I have grown so much. She has the gift of helping people see the patterns that are keeping them stuck and holding them back. She is a healer.

Career: Clears up the Fog. A True Expert.
Deborah clears up the fog. She has advised me in two distinct phases of my life over several years-- personally and professionally. In both, she was a true expert in listening, organizing my ideas, and facilitating my discovery of a more purposeful path and effective methods. I could not have achieved nearly the same results by talking to friends or family on the same subjects. Deborah understands this like a science. I have recommended her to others, and they have likewise been impressed and grateful.

Career & Life: I Finally Found My Voice
I came to Deborah in turmoil, struggling with a huge decision to close my business and give up something I poured my heart and soul into for eight years. I had so many mixed feeling of inadequacy, guilt and frustration but session by session Deborah worked with me on executing the right “next steps” for me. So I could accomplish what I needed to do. Along the way she uncovered lingering issues I had with my mother’s death and father’s abandonment. I feel like a whole new person, ready to speak her mind and take on anything! Deborah I cannot thank you enough! You helped me transform my life, find the courage to speak my mind and embrace new exciting opportunities.

The Impact on my Life and My Career has been Phenomenal!
I was going on and on about how discouraged and frustrated I was, and about how much trouble I was having with a new script idea when a friend confided that he had recently started working with a Career Coach. My reaction was typical. When I heard the words, "Life Coach", I smiled and nodded, but inside I was rolling my eyes - big time. The whole thing just sounded, frankly, silly to me. But not anymore. The impact on my life and career has been phenomenal! In the past, I've always set goals, but no one was there to hold me accountable and support me in staying on track when I broke promises to myself. Joseph Doria, Manager of Operations, Perpetual Education Fund, SLC
A Priceless Moment for Deborah
One day after a workshop, a man came up to me and said "Deborah, I wanted to thank you personally. Thank you for giving me my wife back...
When my wife first spoke to me about working with you I was skeptical. I don't know what else to say. She is so much happier and a joy to be around again. Loves her career again. Thank you. What you've given our family is priceless."
I never got his name. Of all the nice things anyone has ever said to or about me, this one has truly touched my heart and keeps me focused. This work is really about replacing fear with connection to our humanity and our potential. - Deborah
Career & Life: My Personal Life is now Happy and Content
My life and all its various aspects felt as though they were in shambles. My personal life was a mess – a divorce, unhappiness, discontent and conflict. My professional life was a mess – disenchantment with the company, with my management, with my role. Every aspect of my life seemed out of alignment, out of balance, and I felt as though I was drowning underneath all the demands and expectations of everyone around me. This lack of balance, this lack of clarity in ability to evaluate situations within my life with clarity – both personal and professional - revealed itself directly in my performance as a life partner, as a father, and certainly as a highly compensated employee of a major corporation. I was at the brink of voluntarily quitting the company I had served for so long, as my career became the scapegoat focal point of blame for much of what I felt ailed my life.
