“I really enjoyed your technique and style of teaching. I learned all lives are worth saving and any positive change is a success. The information you gave us was very real and straightforward and not just out of a textbook.” (College student comments)

Dee-Dee helped me get to a remarkable new place in my life, a place of fulfillment and presence and genuine participation. I am writing up a storm since I worked with Dee-Dee. I am able to manage my drinking, and even my eating and exercise habits are changing as I am becoming more comfortable with the idea of self-care and self-worth. (Former ICC client comment)

I am deeply grateful to Dee-Dee for the insightful, strong, supportive presence she was during our work together. She has a remarkable ability to nurture and challenge at the same time, and to help her clients see and feel the strength they already possess. (Former ICC client comment)

I am excited to live my life fully and powerfully, and I can't recommend Dee-Dee's help enough to anyone who would like to do the same. (Former ICC client comments)
