Debbie Kohler became a pastoral counselor and spiritual director following the season of her own mid-life changes in the early 1990s. Working with the questions ‘Who am I?’, ‘Why am I here?’ and ‘What is my purpose?’ helped her open the door to healing and started a shift from her childhood faith to a deeper, more personal connection with the Sacred.

A proud mother and enthusiastic grandmother, Debbie expresses her passionate love for God by creating sacred spaces of peace and solitude in her backyard and by communing with creation through bird-watching and leisurely hikes in the woods.
