Weaving together a systemic and integrative approach, Dr. Deborah brings a collaborative spirit, emphasizing mindful presence, somatic awareness, existential inquiry, nature, and strength-based systems.

Are you being called to a rebirth of sorts? 

Maybe you’ve recently been brought to your knees by life.
You know it’s time to shed an old identity and let go of what no longer serves you. 

But you’re feeling scared, anxious, and alone, as you try to find your way through the dark and liminal spaces of who you are becoming. And worst of all, you keep thinking “I should know how to take care of myself by now, I should know how to do this…”

Life transitions show up differently for each person.

It could look like…

  • Burnout, Chronic Illness or Autoimmune Issues
    Perhaps there’s a pattern of extending yourself too much and too often which is showing up in your emotional and physical health. You often feel depleted and exhausted, wondering how to actually take care of yourself and your precious life energy.

  • Profound Loss and Grief
    Whether it’s the death of a loved one, the end of an important relationship or the grief that comes with personal and professional life changes, you know you need some help and support through this transition.

  • The Emergence of A New Identity
    Despite checking all the boxes, maybe you’ve been feeling lost, bored, trapped, uninspired and disconnected, from yourself and your life. You wonder “Who am I? What am I doing with my life?” and you’re wrestling to redefine these foundational questions and regain a clear and powerful sense of self.

Regardless of your circumstances, you have a deep desire to cultivate self-love, presence, play, resilience and vitality.

Plus, you are craving community and support.

You want to walk this journey of becoming with others who understand the level of bravery, courage and strength it takes to truly discover who you are and the life you are here to live.
Dr. Deborah creates welcoming spaces to explore
intense challenges and disorienting transitions. 

She does this while holding the possibility of profound personal transformation, resilient well-being, and embodied compassion. This allows clients to discover a path to greater alignment with who they are here to be and what brings them uniquely alive.

Meet Dr. Deborah

Naturopathic Physician, Mental Health Counselor, Health Coach, Author and Founder of Vital Medicine

I know what it feels like to have a deep yearning that is not being fulfilled, to experience deep loss, heartbreak, chronic illness, and cycles of burnout. I know what it feels like when things are turned upside down, like life is not unfolding how I thought it would. I’ve felt the disorientation of not knowing who I am and the confusion that comes with carving your own path in the world. 

As human beings, we aren’t taught how to navigate the in-between spaces of our lives.  And it’s often in the in-between where things like anxiety, confusion, depression, overwhelm, burnout and chronic fatigue can show up.

Yet, there is this part of us that is craving for a rebirth. This inner wisdom that whispers to us that we can get to the other side and emerge as vital, resilient, and more authentic versions of ourselves. 

This is what I do. I help shepherd women through the unknown terrain of becoming.

Through group mental health counseling, health coaching, and my signature program, Vital U, I help women consciously create their unique transformation and the healing they are looking for.

“What impresses me most about Deborah is her ability to “work with” you, not at you or for you. Her ability to create a safe space to explore and lay vulnerability bare has allowed me to move beyond my self-imposed barriers. If you want to get out of your own way, consider working with Deborah.”

Diane Lippman

Since 2008, I have worked as a licensed naturopathic physician, author, educator, health coach, and mental health counselor. My personal and professional experiences have taught me an embodied compassion and humility for all the ways life can bring us to our knees. Yet I’ve also learned to come home to myself and to guide myself and my clients to the other side of the next version of their life.

I love seeing women come alive. It is an honor to support women as they experience profound shifts by coming into a deeper relationship with themselves.

I’ve witnessed countless women learn to trust themselves, follow their hearts, and make courageous decisions that bring them true vitality and well-being, a greater sense of purpose, and the lived confidence that they can guide themselves toward what brings them alive.

“One of the most important skills that I’ve taken away from our work is that I can trust myself. My whole self — body, spirit, mind. I have more reserves of self-compassion and acceptance.”
