Dwayne Pogue, Retired Husband

Ramona, CA

(Couples Coaching)


"After 35 years of blissful marriage, the wife and I were in dire need of a 'tune-up". Particularly as we enter the final chapters of our lives. Basically, we're together all the time now! Our communication became difficult and ineffective. We had lost appreciation for each other. For the first time in our marriage, we didn't know what to do. We reached out for help.

Upon speaking with her, Deborah was a real breath of fresh air. She resolved our immediate problem with the 'pre interview' and then made accommodations to see us within 24 hours. We're back on track now I'm so thankful. Our marriage got some new spark plugs, oil filter, air filter and a new battery to boot! Life is good"

“Deborah, thank you so much for your help and teachings. I had known for decades I had an anger problem but I didn't know how to fix it or control it.  When I called you it was the best thing I had ever done for myself!  I would sometimes have uncontrolled outbursts that for me was very embarrassing.  I knew I needed some help and I tried therapy that really didn't work for me.  My first session with you was truly a wake-up call, I learned so much and I knew then I could achieve "control" because you taught me how to think about things differently.  For the first time in life I can truly say I feel in control of my actions and I’m a changed man thanks to you!”

Daniel Osborn

La Mesa, CA

(Couples Coaching)

"I’ve been to many therapists and counselors my entire life. It’s extremely hard to meet one that you can truly connect with on an empathetic and compassionate level in order to truly be vulnerable and release deep rooted issues. Deborah made us feel safe and brought out issues I was unaware of. She truly has a gift as a healer of the soul and is the best therapist I have ever seen. I recommend anyone that is trying to heal and grow to see her. It is a very small investment in the grander scheme of the universe."


Stay at Home Mom | Ramona, CA


"Deborah, Life Coaching with you has helped me to see a clearer picture of what I deserve and where I would like to be in my life at this time and in the future.  You have taught me some important tools I can use to help deal with difficult situations. Setting up a game plan with attainable goals was a very important element of our work together.  You also taught me that it is okay to have certain feelings and thoughts about things burdening me and that I could just recognize them at times and not dwell on them.  You have a way of constantly “reading between the lines” picking up on things I said or did not recognize then challenging me with that information.  I’ve learned things about myself through you because you have such great compassion, are a wonderful listener and have excellent communication skills." 

City Employee | San Diego, CA


"One of the most helpful things I learned while coaching with you is my power of choice.  I used to think that my moods had control over me, but now I see the word C-H-O-I-C-E in my mind before I act or make a decision.  I now make choices that are good for me and I am much more in control of life!"  

Kelly Rudolph

(What another coach had to say)

"Deborah is an excellent coach and always guides me to different perspectives and greater awareness, which is what a great coach does! She has a heartfelt way of communicating, which is non-threatening and guides you to where you need to go to make the necessary adjustments in your life. I respect and admire Deborah and call on her for my own coaching without hesitation. I am honored to recommend her."

"Deborah assisted me with her life coaching expertise. She was able to identify issues and solutions in a short period of time. I found her to be professional, knowledgeable, and focused. I would gladly recommend her for life coaching."

Joy Bennett

"Deborah is amazing! She is truly an expert in her field. I worked with her on some issues relating to my business and was able to walk away from our first session with a game plan, confidence and understanding of the situation that was brilliant! She is personable, down to earth and sharp. I highly recommend her."
