About Me image - About Me

I am a Journeyer

Where I am now is completely different from where I once was. After having struggled with depression, relationships, body image, self-love, and addictions, I have been able to overcome the self-doubt and shame by making better lifestyle choices. I know where you are now because I have been there myself.

By taking baby steps you can experience the happiness, joy, love, and passion that I feel today. I am a journeyer. I am still going, I’m not done. I don’t see you the way you see yourself.

I see a beautiful woman who needs to be nurtured. I see the truth of every woman.

I am a mother and an oma (grandmother).

I am in a happy, healthy, passionate relationship with the man I love. For the past 30 years I have researched and studied ways to improve health in mind, body, and spirit. Additionally, I received training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition*, as well as Erickson College International for Life Coaching, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods.

My goal is to help you see things in a light that you didn’t even know existed. My gift is I can help women see who they truly are, not who the world has told them they are. I believe in the value of baby steps, that we focus on the good not the bad. Adding the positive in and crowd out the negative. Life should be lived 80/20. It is important to me to focus on every aspect of a woman’s life.

Your physical body, skincare, mindsets, relationships, finances and nutrition. All of these things work together to help navigate you to your true, authentic self.

Debbie’s Definitions

Health Coach
A person whose purpose is to guide another in obtaining and experiencing better health in their mind, body, and spirit. The end goal is for all women to live a life that is joyful, healthy, and passionate on her terms. This is my life long passion. To do just this!
Keeping your heart open. Living without agenda or expectations. Pure. Loving yourself and others. What I feel for every woman!
An inner drive that pulls the woman in a direction which brings excitement and unveils her purpose. Health coaching is my passion and it is my purpose.
Your internal dialogue that is connected to your belief systems, physical anatomy and chemical reactions. Mine used to be cruel, now it is loving. I want that for you too.
The physical form that houses your mind and the spiritual part of you.
Inner true voice. The Great One. God. The universe. All truth and love. Our guide.
  1. Body – Physically well and vibrant.
  2. Mind – Loving your internal dialogue and belief systems.
  3. Spirit – Being connected to your Source and knowing your purpose. This is my hearts desire for every Sister.
Crowding Out
Focusing on adding what is healthy instead of focusing on what you shouldn’t be doing. When we add in, our bodies start to become healthier and we have less time for bad choices. The healthier we are the easier it is to make healthy choices.
Every female. Race, religion, etc. is irrelevant. We were not created to compete. We were created to celebrate each other. To bond together.
Physical Movement
Anything that activates the body’s healing system, through movement. Yoga, walking, gardening, playing, sex, etc. I use this word instead of exercise because I was talking with my sister about weight loss and when I said the word exercise she physically looked deflated. I noticed with my clients that the “E” word created a negative feeling. So, we don’t say exercise. We have physical movement.
An obstacle. A problem where the solution can’t be seen yet!
Goal weight
A weight where your medical numbers are in a healthy range. Blood pressure, sugar numbers, etc. Size is irrelevant.
Authentic Self
Who you are meant to be. You without the negative thoughts and mindsets we have come to believe about ourselves. Our most beautiful form.
Representation of the beauty of a woman.
Representative of the process of finding our authentic self.
A group of butterflies. Us in our most beautiful form.
Our Sisterhood.
Eat 80% of the time super healthy foods and 20% of the time eat anything you want. When eating 80% of the time healthful, the 20% the body can handle. If fighting illness then the percentage should be tweaked.
One man’s poison is another man’s medicine and one man’s medicine is another man’s poison. Everybody is different and the needs and wants of every individual is different. Someone else’s solution may not be your solution.
