Debra is a nationally recognized educator and author with a truly unique combination of credentials and life experiences that made her inexplicably qualified to establish and manage the Meehl Foundation Spiritual Retreat Center. Among other things Debra is a plant -medicine Shaman with a Doctorate of Divinity, an intensively trained DBT skills trainer, an Amen certified brain health coach and a board-certified hypnotist.
As president and founder of the Meehl Foundation, Debra has worked extensively with clients from around the world; helping them surmount dogma, ego, expectation, irrational belief, and cyclic suffering in order to create a life worth living. Her uncommonly inclusive approach embraces your personal beliefs and blends this with evidence-based methods to create a customized course of action that is exclusive to the individual. For over 10 years Debra has dedicated herself to helping countless men and women heal the negative patterns and trauma of their lives and in so doing step into a life of authenticity and purpose.
Debra is often described by others as being the ‘wise advisor’ or the ‘voice of reason’. She possesses the keen ability to see all sides of a situation while simultaneously maintaining the clarity of distance. A rare capacity for unconditional love plays into her every endeavor, as she seeks to understand and help others grasp the source of their existence. By spreading the knowledge gained through years of thirstful seeking, she helps promote a more open and inclusive culture-scape for all involved. By opening her home to clients, she provides a truly warm, caring, and inviting environment wherein people can heal and discover themselves – sometimes for the very first time.
When she is not preoccupied with clients, Debra can most often be found searching for a lost cup of coffee, reading even more books on holistic wellness and spirituality, researching the newest tips, tricks, techniques, and recipes for wellness, outside by the fire, coaxing the nearest person into a deep and meaningful conversation about the nature of the divine, or playing with her grandchildren.
