Important to Work with Deborah
recent years, Holistic Health has gained much popularity
with a substantial increase in practitioners who call
themselves Holistic Health healers and Nutritional
Therapists, many of whom have little or no professional
training or clinical experience.
Often this results in
inadequate, ineffective, even harmful counseling advice for
expertise, professional training, and 25 years clinical
experience are in Traditional Chinese Medicine with
an emphasis on Nutritional Therapy, Oriental
Diagnosis, and Herbal Medicine. In Traditional
Chinese Medicine, many factors determine the most beneficial
foods for each individual: constitutional strengths and
weaknesses, all health conditions, mental and emotional
states, age, activity level, lifestyle factors, and more.
Foods are recommended based on their correspondence with
individual patterns, modified by the season, the climate,
and all health conditions. Not everyone will benefit
equally from foods that contain the same measure of
nutrients. The appropriateness of foods cannot be
determined without knowledge of the context of the person
eating them. There is no one way of eating that works to
bring everyone good health. There is not and never can be a
universal standard for what constitutes good food.

is a therapy used to uncover the mental/emotional and
spiritual causes of your problems; how you may sabotage your
efforts; and conflicting intentions that oppose your
well-being. Through Attitudinal healing your will learn to
listen to the messages your body and life are communicating
to you in new ways to discover the hidden meaning and
positive gifts within your problems. This is a
process of uncovering attitudes, personal truths, and fears
that have created your current situation. It helps you
understand how negative mental/emotional states can work for
you, rather than against you. You will learn to create
harmony, balance and strength through the conflicts and
struggles in your life. When this happens, the
problems dissolve as you no longer have a need for it.

How We Work Together
The relationship between
counselor and client is a powerful alliance designed to help
you achieve specific, identified goals. The process may
address general conditions in your life or profession.
Deborah is interested in your complete medical history, how
you respond to life’s challenges, your fears and
aspirations, and what makes you unique. Her questions are
geared towards identifying what is causing your problems.
Recommendations are made based
on your unique condition, and will change as your condition
changes. I will provide effective recommendations to
achieve your goals and determine what’s stopping you. I will
educate, guide, motivate and support you to success at every
level, including physical, mental/emotional and lifestyle.
are asked to make a commitment to the counseling process.
Follow-up is required and amount of sessions depends on the
severity of problems. Most problems took many years to
develop and it is not practical or reasonable to think they
will all clear up after one session. I work with clients
over a 3-12 month time period, and
provide phone and email support between sessions during
business hours. A client’s investment of time and energy
will reap a lifetime of health, vitality, joyful living, and
peace of mind.
Counseling/coaching sessions can be done by phone, skype and email,
or in our Pittsburgh office. Nearly 50% of our clients
are long-distance with clients in 10 countries. You can choose the amount of
sessions that work best for you. When you schedule you
will be sent an Intake Questionnaire which must be returned
prior to the session. A detailed personalized
booklet of recommendations is given
at in-person sessions, and sent via email for phone
sessions. Email support between sessions with prompts,
additional guidance and clarification, motivation, and
inspiration is provided.
Counseling/coaching sessions are a process designed to keep
you moving forward. Discovering and eliminating causes
is an important part of the process.
