Every one of us was born to live on this amazing planet. We’re meant to be part of the perfectly designed systems and cycles of nature. We have— all around us— every provision we need for our daily care, our medicine and for graceful aging.

My Passion is to Serve

My life’s passion is to serve those who want to come back into alignment with these truths. My journey began very close to home, over 20 years ago. After receiving a diagnosis, I chose to learn how to heal myself. I learned how to allow my body to heal by supporting and assisting its natural design.

I read every piece of research I could find and tried all the advice out for myself. When I healed myself and my family with this system, I realized it was my calling to share the knowledge with others. I went to school to become a Naturopathic Doctor.

With all this growth, I’ve come to see that my passion for living a full, energetic life is not just mine–it’s one many of us share. Energetic Wellness is dedicated to supporting individuals and communities coming back into themselves. We are fully alive when we’re living in alignment with the powerful, life-giving design of nature and our own bodies.

Coming Back to Ourselves

As my family, then friends, then clients were able to take my knowledge and make changes in their lives, my practice grew. Now I lead regular seasonal Transformation retreats, have a full schedule of one-on-one Naturopathic consultations and am training new health coaches to work with the knowledge I’ve created over more than two decades of time.

It’s my dream that with my simple 7 Laws of Wellness, all of us will remember our true, natural design created to support us through life. It’s time to take our power back in how we’re each meant to live.

Deb is a Nebraska native. Plymouth, Nebraska is Deb's home where she is a wife and mother of 3 children. She received her B.S. in Dental Hygiene degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2001 and Dr. of Naturopathy from Energetic Wellness School of Naturopathy in 2020.

After practicing dental hygiene for 15 years, and while raising a family, she encountered some health issues of her own, but more pressing was the medical condition her young daughter had encountered. The situation led her to explore more deeply the underlying cause of the issue at hand. Knowing there must be natural options available to deal with this condition rather than accepting reliance on pharmaceuticals, she continued to search for answers. This search led her to extend her studies and to add a certification as a Transformation Lifestyle Coach as well as Bionetics Practitioner and German New Medicine Consultant to her credentials. Deb is the owner of Optimal Wellness where as a Naturopathic Doctor she assists clients in identifying the underlying cause of their symptoms and assisting them in supporting their body through it's natural healing phase. It is Deb's passion to help people understand their body's natural design and learn how to regain their natural state of balanced energy and vitality.
