I’m Debra Simms, and I’m a survivor.

I’m a Certified Life Coach and Public Speaker.

As a Life Coach I work one-on-one or in small groups, principally with people who form the support network for people who have survived catastrophic or life changing-events.  My purpose is to assist my clients in discovering and employing techniques that allow them to define their place in a support network and set boundaries that work for them.

As a Public Speaker, I principally address issues of Self-Support and Self-Empowerment to groups as diverse as parents, health-care professionals, victim support groups, and the children of the elderly.

When we take on the responsibility of supporting a survivor of a life-changing event we change our own lives, too.


Oh, and everyone has survived life-changing events!
