Who is Deb

The career I loved

I am an educator at heart. Teaching chemistry, physics and math to high school students for 27 years, I was able to touch the lives of students of all abilities and backgrounds. My passion has always been to serve those that I teach in a way that challenges them to find their inner confidence and strengths. 


As I explored my other passion of spirituality, I started my Reiki journey in 2001 and completed Reiki I, Reiki II, Usui Reiki Master Level, Karuna Reiki Master Level and Reiki and Animal trainings. I began teaching all Reiki Levels starting in 2006. 


The Horses

During my sabbatical year in 2004-2005, I pursued my deep love of horses by studying with Linda Kohanov (Tao of Equus) in equine facilitated learning (EFL).  I was certified as an Eponaquest Instructor and began offering The Way of The Horse workshops where participants spend time with horses and course material to learn more about themselves and their interaction in the world. In 2013, I continued my work with Linda Kohanov and EFL by delving deeply into the content and horse experiences pertaining to the Power of the Herd. I again travelled to Arizona for training to teach the concepts of Linda’s newest book The Five Roles of The Master Herder in 2016.

Life Coaching

Also in 2016, I completed my year long program of becoming a certified Law of Attraction Life Coach. 

So here I am 

My life path has taken me to the place that matters most, my heart. And from here, I offer group workshops and trainings in Reiki, EFL, and leadership. I also works with individuals and families with the horses to find that place within us that is authentic and nonjudgmental and through that awareness see and be in the world differently. In each session or workshop, I bring my practice of life coaching and Reiki and I bring my open and compassionate heart to listen to you and guide you in a way that opens your heart to yourself and the world. I would love for you to join me. 



Here is what people have to say about me:

“Deb is a talented teacher in any forum.  She is clear, directed and insightful, making what might otherwise seem esoteric, available and within our grasp.  She has helped me re-open the link between spirit and energy in the world of healing and I am deeply grateful. “

“Deb has created a beautiful atmosphere to create an ultimate learning experience with her and her herd of horses.  Not only is the property incredibly special, Deb is an exceptionally gifted teacher.”

“Deb’s calm, practical, loving wisdom provided a safe relationship in which to explore the mysteries and magic of Reiki energy as applied to animals and humans. Her beautiful ranch served as a serene and nurturing backdrop to the deep, intuitive healing work we did together. Everything moved in sacred time.  I felt so calm and restored, connected with myself and the universal flow of love and light!”
