It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.

Hi, my name is Deanna.
As a highly sought after transpersonal/somatic psychotherapist, I found this professional path by means of personal exploration and a deep desire to contribute to humanity in a meaningful way. I am a compassionate social justice warrior who seeks to create an integration of the human and spiritual worlds, one person at a time. I specialize in illuminating the intersection of a person's natural talents and their soul's calling in order to live a life deeply aligned with purpose and contribution. This online course, The Embodied Path, was created with love to share my unique method to a broader audience and at an affordable price. This is a great course to supplement your ongoing therapeutic work!
How do I know this? Because I have been there…
Growing up, I was led to believe that my external accomplishments would create a life of joy and freedom. It was instilled in me that if I got a quality education, landed a lucrative job, and found a life partner my life would unfold seamlessly from there. So, off I went!
Now, imagine my confusion when insomnia and anxiety persisted.
For the longest time, I thought I could think and plan my way into creating the life I desired. Coaches told me that I "create my reality" so when life wasn't fulfilling I criticized myself. I thought, “if I only worked harder”, “if I could just control my emotions or thoughts better”. But, instead, I was creating a vacuous hole of anxiety and self-loathing that manifested as tension in personal and professional relationships. Ultimately, my stress manifested itself as a chronic illness and at this moment of complete surrender, it clicked. I turned inward and began to get curious about what lies below the surface, driving my results.
My approach to life changed and I want to support the same shift for you.
Let me guide your journey to growth and healing.
I realized that if I didn’t deal with the disconnect I created between my intellectual self and my emotional self, I would forever be in this stress-inducing loop, taking me further from the life I desired to create. When I was able to truly understand the importance of emotional regulation and use it as a tool to shift my way of thinking, I began to create entirely different results in my life. I focused on creating the capacity to integrate all of the information I was learning. I got on track with healing my life from the inside out...
My life's passion is supporting others in becoming the architects of their ever-evolving life.
