My name is Debra McGinley and I am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC). My mission is to be a small stone that creates a ripple in the water. As an integrative health coach, I play an active role in helping to support those suffering with – and those looking to prevent – chronic disease and associated risks by implementing lasting behavior changes in conjunction with evidence-based medical recommendations. I partner with individuals to identify obstacles impeding behavior change and help create strategies to improve health behaviors and outcomes. Through cultivating awareness, self-reflection, and personal development, individuals are empowered to overcome brick walls, all while honoring personal values and autonomy.
French polymath Blaise Pascal in his Pesées said, “People are generally persuaded by the reasons which they themselves have discovered than by those which have come in to the mind of others.” Thus, my role is not to tell you what to do, or how to do it, but to support you in finding what works best for you. Research demonstrates those who maintain autonomous and purpose-driven motivation are more likely to achieve their goals and avoid the vicious cycle of failure.

- Physical Activity

“I gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which I must stop and look fear in the face…
I say to myself, I’ve lived through this and can take the next thing that comes along… We must do the things that we think we cannot do.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt
“Debra has truly found her passion in helping others. She was completely invested in helping me reach my initial goals as well as helping me discover along the way, goals I didn’t even realize I had. Debra is incredibly supportive and compassionate and approached each meeting with an energy and awareness that made me feel comfortable and motivated to reach my goals.” – B. B.
“Debra provided a safe, open environment where profound awareness and personal growth resulted from our exploration. We established a great rapport and deep trust in each other, minimizing our boundaries and maximizing my progress. She supported me and encouraged me throughout my journey, allowing me to overcome fears and obstacles that stood in my way. My life’s dream was fulfilled in light of our collaboration!” – P. R.
