About Debra Ann Cruz, CEAP, LPC, CPLC

Over the past 30 years I have been a natural life coach, counselor, educator, and mentor. My passion is helping people to gain clarity in what they want and to devise strategies that create positive change and significantly improves their lives. 

What makes me unique from other Life Coaches?

What makes me unique is my belief in:

  • Being a good listener to hear the story of your experiences, past and present, and the desires of what you want for your life.

  • Taking a big-picture approach to helping you to face and understand your fears and create the fulfillment and meaning you desire.

  • Teaching you the language of feelings and emotions so you can understand of your internal roadmap of life experiences.

  • Helping you to release emotional debts and heal past hurts with forgiveness.

More importantly, I will listen to you and not judge you. I will provide a space for you to say the awkward, the uncomfortable, the unspeakable things you may have thought, said, or done. I will respect your right to make decisions about your own life, but I will also engage you in a dialogue about what is working and not working for you, and I will encourage you to consider a different approach if I think that might be helpful.

As a Certified Professional Life Coach I will help you to:

  • Increase your self-esteem. 

  • Know yourself and define where you are and where you want to be.

  • Clarify your goals and vision of your life.

  • Create actionable strategic plans to make it happen.

  • Boost your performance.

  • Navigate major transitions.

  • Improve emotional health and wellbeing.

  • Navigate major transitions.

  • Tackle new challenges.

My goal is to help you to uncover your strengths to recover damaged self-esteem and equip you with tools to better manage the anxieties of everyday life challenges.
