Debra’s specialty is blending astrology and psychology to help clients understand their life lessons, unique purpose, strengths and challenges. Her work is based on Jungian psychology and the four elements of Water, Air, Earth and Fire. She teaches that an awareness of unique behavioral tendencies under stress allows us to have understanding and compassion for ourselves and each other.
During times of crisis some of us want to be alone, some need to talk, while others get busy; it is essential in the name of emotional wisdom to know how to deal with ourselves and our loved ones with sensitivity and grace. This is the theme to Debra’s work: the continual pursuit of wisdom and integrity and the honoring of the individual.
Debra holds an M.A. from Antioch University in Clinical Psychology. She trained for her mental health credentials at Harvard University where she specialized in Dance Therapy. Throughout her career, Debra has pursued a passionate study of Esoteric Healing, Astrology and Metaphysics.
