Guiding and Supporting You to Craft a Life with More Purpose & Passion

Are you feeling stuck?

Not sure what your purpose is?

Feeling lost as to what’s next for you in life?

Career & Life Transition Coaching

Find your true calling. Craft a life, and a career, that is the purest reflection of what you are here to do and be.

Business Acceleration Coaching

Take a quantum leap in launching or growing your business.

Say Hello,


If your life, career or business is just not going the way you want it to and you’ve just been trying to cope with it all, you may be managing it but you’re not really getting at the core of why you are where you are.

It’s similar to taking an aspirin to deal with a physical pain – if you don’t get at what is causing the pain; all you’re doing is masking it temporarily.

Creating real change that lasts requires a different approach – a whole mind, body & spirit approach.

My signature programs combine both spiritual and practical tools to assist you in creating long lasting change — QUICKLY!

You can keep trying to cope with your life as it is on your own, but I say, “Let me help you!”

Let’s explore what’s going on, together.

Let me support you in creating a new level of awareness and connection to yourself.

Let me help you create a shift in your life. It’s what I am here to do.

Find Your Purpose. Do What You Love. Create a Personal Blueprint for Your Life So You Know You're on the Right Path.

Here's what I know to be true...

I have been helping clients like you get unstuck and I’ve been doing it since the mid-90’s when few people even knew what a coach was. So I’ve had a lot of experience at learning what works and how to support my clients in creating change.

Most coaches can provide you with practical tools for getting clear on your priorities, setting goals, and creating an action plan to put them into place. But those practical tools will only take you so far.

Because here’s the deal, any time you decide to create change in your life, you’re moving out of your comfort zone. What does that do? It triggers an instinctive, biological reaction that we’re all born with – FEAR. All the practical tools in the world won’t help you in moving forward at that point unless you have strategies to deal with your inner gremlins, fears and beliefs that you’ve acquired over the years.

My mission is to inspire individuals, like you, to become more conscious and aware of your self-limiting beliefs and patterns and to provide you with easily-accessible tools to make shifts in your life so you can live life with more purpose, clarity and abundance!

“It feels like I’m turning a corner and won’t go back to the old unhappy way of life.”

[I’m] beginning to recognize my gifts and how important I am. It feels like I’m turning a corner and won’t go back to the old unhappy way of life…it is a very good way of finding your joy. The process helps you to figure things out and be more of who you really are.

“…has helped me find courage, knowledge and skills to move my business forward.”

Being a Yoga teacher combining the business coaching with a spiritual element was a big attraction for me.

I wondered how well the business coaching would work as I live in Ireland however Debra is committed and passionate about what she does and has helped me find courage, knowledge and skills to move my business forward… I would recommend Debra highly.

Is a Coach the Right Choice for You?

When I started out as a coach back in the 90’s, few people knew what a coach was. When I introduced myself they’d often ask “You mean like a sport coach?” Even now, I find that often people aren’t really clear about what role a coach plays.

The purpose of a coach is to help you create a life that fulfills you.

If you’re wondering about hiring a life coach, consider these benefits:

1. You can finally decide what you want to be when you grow up.

Whether you’re wanting to change careers, launch a business or going through some other major life transition, coaches are great at getting you to actually choose what you want for your life. You’ll get to design your ideal life to maximize your fulfillment.

2. You’ll raise your standards.

Many of your challenges likely result from having standards that are too low. You may be too quick to settle, taking jobs that are beneath your capabilities or getting into relationships that don’t serve you. Your boundaries may be weak and undefined.

A coach will help you overcome these challenges.

3. You’ll be held accountable.

If you decide on your own to start working out each morning and then you don’t follow through, you can tell yourself that you’ll start again tomorrow. On the other hand, a coach will keep you to the task. They’ll also teach you skills to support you in learning to stay on track on your own.

4. Your life will become more balanced.

We all tend to emphasize certain things and fail to give others enough emphasis. A coach will encourage you to give adequate attention to all the areas of your life.

5. You’ll stretch yourself beyond what you thought you were capable of.

Have you ever noticed that some people never change? They’re the same today as they were ten or more years ago. Life is about learning and applying that learning to get better results. If your life is always the same, you’re either not learning or not applying what you’ve learned.

Your coach will get you to do all of those things you need to be doing and want to be doing, but can’t quite get yourself to do.

6. You’ll work through your challenges with an expert to support you.

Dealing with challenges can be intimidating. Having an expert in your corner can make all the difference. Two heads really can be better than one. Sometimes all we need is a little encouragement and support. It can be a great way to get unstuck.

7. You’ll have someone that is just as excited by your successes as you are!

Have you ever done something that fills you with pride, only to find out that your family, friends, or significant other seems less than impressed?

Having someone cheer your successes creates momentum. Momentum allows you to accomplish even greater accomplishments.

A personal coach can be a great idea if you feel that you’re stuck and truly want to change.

Have you been trying to change your life but been unable to? If so, a coach is likely to make a huge difference in your life.

On the other hand, if your life is right where you want it, a coach might not be what you’re looking for.

Consider your desires and your ability to bring them about on your own. If you feel you could use some help, seeking the help of a coach might be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.
