A Trustworthy Life Coach and Psychotherapist

About Deborah Cohen

Providing psychotherapy and coaching is my passion and source of joy. I believe that it is my soul's calling. Since childhood, I have always been very intuitive, introspective, and curious about human nature and the roots of our suffering.

When I was just a little girl, I went through various problems myself. These include the divorce of my parents and other traumas in life, such as a major accident. I engaged in my own therapy as a teen and into my adult years.  I found that the best way to make sense of my varied experiences in life was through integrating my mind, body, and spirit. This integration process included spiritual exploration, body awareness exercises, meditation, and mindfulness-based work.  In turn, my goal is to help you explore and harmonize your mind, body and spirit so that you can live a richer, more fulfilling life.

A History of My Spiritual Path

16

I was on a spiritual path since the age of 18 and up until recently. My path has been a wondy road. I have explored many spiritual belief and practices, especially those with an Eastern orientation. I attended dozens of meditation retreats, and I learned that we each have an inner spiritual wisdom that deeply informs us about who we are. This knowingness can direct us when our ego-minds get out of the way.

I no longer consider myself on a spiritual path. My searchng is over. I have stopped seeking what I now know has always been here—the oneness that we are—with God or the Ground of Being.

My Experience as a Therapist and Life Coach

Through the years, I have learned that each of us has amazing bodily and spiritual wisdom that needs to be recognized and tuned into. After undergoing various trainings and attaining a number of psychotherapy and coaching certifications, I realized that a certain kind of body and spiritual awakening is necessary for deep healing.

I am certified in Somatic Experiencing (SE), which is a wonderful technique for releasing trauma and coming into greater well-being by tuning in to bodily wisdom. Also, I have a certification in I-Rest, a form of Yoga Nidra that involves learning from the body and its deep wisdom. I utilize both of these therapeutic methods as well as other types of yoga and somatic psychotherapies that alleviate suffering and help people heal.

In addition, I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Heart Centered Hypnotherapy. These modalities include both bodily and spiritual wisdom and connection for healing.
I have been a meditation teacher and spiritual group facilitator for more than 20 years. I also apply the same spiritual and therapeutic techniques for my own wellbeing. As a result, I have discovered many rewards for my own healing and well-being which I share with my beloved clients.

Helping Other Therapists

Studying and utilizing numerous therapeutic modalities for more than 25 years, I have also been of great help to a number of my local community of therapists. For the past dozen or so years, I have been known as a "therapist's therapist." Many licensed psychotherapists and psychotherapy associates have completed their own psychotherapy sessions and group classes with me. They profoundly recognize my longtime experience and expertise.
