I have had counselling support in the past, but not like the healing and empowering kind that I received from Debbie.  Debbie’s “golden nuggets” of wisdom and wise and caring advice to me was invaluable in my healing process. I am on a healing path with a huge debt of gratitude to Debbie for helping me. Debbie to me: HELPFUL, HEALING, UNCONDITIONALLY CARING, EMPOWERING, WISE, WARM SAFE, KIND, KNOWLEDGABLE, EXPERT, and a GIVER to name a few of her amazing gifts.
A very grateful client
