"Deborah you are a brilliant counselor and I have the pick of the best people in the world. Your flexibility in the moment and ability to get into the subconscious mind and help someone see themselves is a thing of beauty. Epic!! Thank you so much. In my line of work, I rarely meet anyone who can hold my hand when I'm in the re-birthing process. So...thank you for holding my vulnerability. You are amazing. Love Always." - Mother and Internationally Recognized Metaphysical and Spiritual Leader, Author, Speaker, Santa Fe, New Mexico

"Deborah... i feel so much stronger and have a real understanding of my situation thanks to your wisdom, positivity, strength, encouragement and most important, explaining and confronting me with the truth which was often hard to accept as i was often blind to it. You inspire me. Thanks for sharing your situation so honestly, it helps me understand mine. Thank you for the great work you are doing." Joseph, New York, NY
"Thank you Deborah for truly caring about me and teaching me how to bond with my baby! I was lost before I met you, unable to think clearly, feeling confused and wanting to die. Our sessions helped me understand why I was sick and creating so much drama. You taught me what I needed to do to get better. I will never forget what you have done for me and my son.

"I don't know what I would have done without Deborah. I was hiding in my room a lot, I was in such a dark place and her nurturing helped me to understand why. I had stopped crying and expressing my emotions because it made my husband and mother uncomfortable. With Deborah I felt safe to let them out. Together we found other supportive people in my life that I could turn to when my own family wasn't able to be there for me. I know now it's ok to express myself, that my needs are normal and that I'm a good Mother, I just needed a good teacher to light the way. - Dera, Los Angeles, CA
Deborah Clemente is an expert in postpartum issues. She knows everything about hormones and nutrition and a woman's body! THe Postpartum Plan she created with me was so thorough that I finally got the medical attention I needed. I loved her integrated healing sessions, the foot reflexology and energy work and coaching really helped me to release the pain and fear so I could feel at peace again." - Mother of 2, Los Angles, CA
In July doctors discovered a lump in my breast and surgery was needed. My mother was unable to travel to New York City to accompany me so she hired Deborah. Deborah was a blessing! During the surgery she was velcro by my side. She met with my doctors and asked specific questions and took notes so she could convey information to my mom and friends in numerous phone updates. After the surgery, Deborah was waiting by my side in the recovery room - a welcoming comfort. She accompanied me home and stayed with me and I healed in a matter of days because I had her nursing me back to health. - Karen, Publicist, New York, NY
