See what others are saying about Better Choices Wellness and our founder/president:
“Debbie is able to help you get to the bottom of your road blocks. Usually those blocks are self induced. She helps you discover them and even find your own solutions with guidance. This guidance makes it easier and more doable on a personal level. The road blocks just become slight bumps along the path. She helps you plan your life choices and achieve realistic goals.”
“My place of employment offered programs to assist with lifestyle change for good health. Debbie was assigned to be my health coach. Thanks to her I was able to change my lifestyle to help me become a healthier and happier person. She listened to my challenges and needs and was so very supportive. She helped me develop a program that I can maintain for long-term health. Because of her support, I have lost weight and now exercise regularly.”
“For 58 years I have only known one way to live my life, but now I know it is I who can change the cycle of dieting and regaining weight. However It’s not about what I have lost, 14 lbs in 10 weeks, it’s what I have gained!
For 37 years of married life I have taken care of everyone except myself. Though sessions with Debbie I have learned it is not selfish to take care of yourself, but a necessity in order to go on caring for others. Being able to voice my thoughts in my sessions has given me the confidence to be able to set boundaries with those I love so I may have the time to take care of myself. I now have the courage to ask those I love to help, or walk with me on the road to good health. I now know if you want others to respect you, you must set the example by respecting yourself. Thank you Debbie, You are not just my coach, but you will always be my Angel on my shoulder.”
“Deb was incredible! I was at a low point in my health and mood; really needed help to change. Deb was able to focus on what was most important to me, ask revealing and insightful questions that helped me form a plan that worked for me. I never felt anything but support and meaningful guidance during our sessions; and between talks, used her directions/suggestions as motivators, which were highly effective. The turning point for me was when I realized I just got up and got on the treadmill every morning without the self-talk…. ‘I’m too tired, my legs hurt, gotta’ get to work.’ I just realized walking daily had become a habit I was able to sustain. Thank you, Deb……you are REALLY good at what you do!”
“Deb was a shining light at the bottom of what started as long road I had not any success in getting onto previously. She came into my life at the right time and with her encouragement I was able to figure out what the best individual path for me would be to accomplish my own personal goals. I had joined gyms, weight loss clinics, hired personal trainers and on and on an endless array of programs to focus on just losing weight but what worked the best was a focus on my health and my daily habits. Deb helped me break the ‘pie in the sky’ into small daily goals and as I knew I would be reporting back I had to take action to have something to contribute to the conversation. My daily outlook and life has shifted from giving up or succumbing to the couch to looking forward and feeling like I accomplished something in the right direction. Deb can be credited for helping me take charge of my health instead of leaving it in the hands of health practitioners and I have successfully stopped taking three different medications I thought I would never live without.”
“You have such a great sense of character and way of connecting with others. I found your style to just fit everything that I needed and even maybe didn’t know I needed from words of encouragement and positive reinforcement with the work I was doing. I know you had said along several times, it was my work, but I know I personally would not have accomplished all that I did without this personal coaching time and words of encouragement. I never really thought about ‘coaching’ before and I am so glad to have had this wonderful and positive experience in my life. As I said before it was perfect timing for me both personally and professionally. I did not realize how stressed and overwhelmed I was and really how off balance certain areas of my life were at the time. I gained so many insights into where my areas of weakness were and learned to focus on small positives to work towards a new balance in my life. I will forever be so grateful for having the most AMAZING and AWESOME COACH I could have ever dreamed of having! You are truly wonderful and have such an amazing talent for coaching. You have so many strengths as a coach, I could not think of anything you could change, be yourself as you are, you are wonderful!”
