About the Author

Debbie is a psychotherapist with a private practice in New York City, where she has specialized in trauma, grief, and loss. Interweaving eastern philosophy, energy healing, and spiritual practices from cultures around the world, Debbie bridges together traditions of ancient and modern, east and west, the wisdom of the ages, and the many different ways people have ritualized grief and healing. She uses time-honored practices to inform the tools she shares with readers and clients.

Debbie holds a deep curiosity and interest in how people have been dealing with grief and loss since the beginning of time. She helps normalize common feelings and experiences for people who are grieving, and holds space for each of us to experience grief in our own way and time, because grief is not linear. There are many gifts that accompany loss, including spiritual awakenings, discovering the connection with forever love, developing deep compassion, and grateful appreciation for the blessings along the way - from grief to healing to transformation and joy. Debbie has walked this path throughout her life and wants to help you on your path from grief to joy.

Prior to becoming a therapist she had a successful career in the financial industry for over twenty years. Debbie has a Master's Degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness from New York University and completed a two year post-graduate Advanced Trauma Studies program at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy. In 2012 she received the NYU Steinhardt Award for Outstanding Clinical Service.

With the connection of a shared experience, Debbie guides the reader through grief to transformation and a new beginning.
