At Living Alive my vision is for clients to live joyfully with themselves and others. I offer a range of individualized services to help people achieve this. You may find healing through Laughter Yoga or Healing Touch, a relaxing therapy that rebalances your energy field and promotes self-healing. We can also work together to identify complementary therapies that will augment your traditional cancer therapy or to uncover barriers that are preventing you from achieving your health goals.        —Deb

What is Laughter Yoga?

Laughter Yoga is an interactive group activity composed of creative laughter and breathing exercises. It brings out the childlike playfulness in everyone and leaves you feeling energized, invigorated and content.  A Laughter Yoga session can have a profound effect on your overall health and well-being.

What is a Cancer Guide?

As a Cancer Guide, I’ll support you and your loved ones as you move through and beyond your experience with cancer and its treatment. I’ll help instill hope in your journey.

The diagnosis of cancer is frightening and can cause changes to your daily routine, quality of life and overall well-being. I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment so you can confront your deepest fears and uncertainties. I’ll help you and your loved ones answer the important question “What Else Can I Do?”

I can help you find a place of inner peace so you can confidently make the decisions that are necessary when you are diagnosed with cancer.
