 My Story


Most Significant Achievement:  The development of a series of powerful
self-help techniques, grounded in neuroscience and mindfulness, in response to
her confrontation with an episode of life-threatening cancer. And, of course, the
book, Bright Mind, Happy Heart, Best Life, which shares those tools with readers.

These techniques have consistently demonstrated, for over two decades, how
it is possible to use simple sensory 
techniques to reverse-engineer emotional trauma, unhappy memories and rigid beliefs from cellular memory. Referred to
by many as "an attainable miracle for your life," these gentle yet powerful tools
facilitate instant results and lasting change.


  • Deanna brings to her clients and students a safe haven of healing in a non-judgmental, nurturing environment. She encourages the active practice of truth, compassion, love, and personal accountability as the pathway to a life of harmony, joy and vitality.

  • Endlessly fascinated by how the mind works, Deanna's therapeutic process seamlessly blends with comprehensive training from inspirational Masters of meditation and of the Metaphysical healing arts. Certifications include Usui Reiki, Shamanism, Theta Healing (Instructor), Reconnective Healing.


  • Her commitment to life-long-learning continues with the recent addition of a Diploma in
    Family Studies which focused upon the sociology, psychology and history of the North
    American family dynamic.

  • Born to Christianity, Deanna later discovered a world of mystical beliefs and spirituality to which she was more aligned. 

  • A meaningful period of her own transition to a ‘new reality’ was the seven months spent
    on sabbatical & meditation in Nepal, 2005-2006. Deanna shares a few fun and enlightening experiences of that journey in her book -
    Bright Mind, Happy Heart, Best Life.

"Not so long ago, I would not have believed it possible to be living my life of choice.
Not just living it, but thriving, happy, waking every day with a sense of unbridled
enthusiasm for life and for the contributions I make to others lives. 


It has been, and continues to be a wild ride! New experiences and adventures at

every turn. I've excitedly made the transition from workaholic frenzy to meditative
calm and a deeper connection to higher
consciousnessfrom designer business suits,
hose and heels to 
leggings and denim, from fruity Merlot to fruit smoothies (more often
than not), from buttery French pastries (and
a few too many extra pounds) to gluten-free
vegan brownies, and from relentless researcher and bookworm to 5-Star rated author.
'm healthier, more creative and happier than I've ever been."
