Debbie holds a B.S. from the University of Rochester and a Masters in Social Work from Simmons College. She is a certified nutrition health coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, a certified Allergy Release Technique® practitioner, and has trained in energy medicine and reiki healing techniques.
Prior to opening her ART® practice, Debbie worked as a licensed social worker with older adults in various settings including hospitals, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. She then went on to manage a family business for 8 years. Both careers were fulfilling and brought her great joy and a sense of purpose, but she felt she was meant to be doing something else.
Debbie’s oldest son reacted to peanut butter at just 9 months old and was quickly diagnosed as having anaphylactic allergies to peanuts, tree nuts and sesame. Refusing to be limited by allergists whose sole advice was for her son to simply avoid all allergy-causing foods for the rest of his life (because “there are no other options”), she finally came upon a veritable solution: Allergy Release Technique®. Her son started the program when he was just two and a half years old and, one by one, overcame each and every food allergy to the point where he could finally eat everything freely. It was truly a life-changing experience.
Debbie has a passion for helping and healing others, so much so that she changed careers mid-life to become an Allergy Release Technique® practitioner and could offer others the same safe, allergy-free life she and her family now enjoy. Debbie lives in Needham with her husband, Josh, and two sons, Jackson and Carter.
