From Rebecca R:
1. I wanted to work with Deb because it is challenging to find people working in bodymind science who are attuned to the interlocking structures of oppression that interact with our bodyminds and our pain. Deb occupies that happy space where science meets social justice—I felt safe to explore my bodymind with her because I knew that her information and insights wouldn’t be based in fatphobia, ageism, or ableism.
2. Deb helped me uncover some of the core beliefs and thoughts that were driving not only my physical pain but also my anxiety. I have found so much relief from both using the tools Deb offers and models in our sessions. I feel so much more confident in my ability to deal with pain and anxiety when they come up, to understand both as neutral sensations in my bodymind that are just part of the “being a human” package. I’ve started running again—given that a couple of years ago I was convinced I’d never walk again, that’s a pretty big fucking deal!
3. This program was so worth the investment. Deb is not only well-informed, they are also a caring and attentive listener, and an insightful coach who knows how to ask the right questions to unlock our own capacities for healing and growth. They’re also a blast!
4. I am so much more hopeful than I was before this program, because I know that whatever happens, I can handle it. I’m looking forward to becoming a better friend to my bodymind.
