My education included University of Minnesota, Glenwood Beauty Academy ,CMC, International Dermal Institute and iPEC. I moved to Colorado at 20 years old, love  outdoor recreation and art. I have a passion for helping people figure out how to attain the life they desire, healthy, mindful living,eco-friendly and am an artist as well.   I married and divorced and spent years working on myself with Al Anon, Narconon , CODA and  formed a  study group for personal growth.  I am happily remarried to a very giving man.   I owned a successful Paradise Salon and expanded to Paradise Day Spa for 25 years.  Coach and ELI-Master Practitioner  studied with iPEC coaching school and continue with advanced education in coaching.   iPEC graduates help clients get the desired result much faster than other coaching programs. I love to spend winters in warm places and do Coaching Retreats.  I love the outdoors and the healing effects of nature and offer coaching walks and hikes as well as in person or remotely.


Deb keyed directly into my dilemma and helped me crystallize what to do.  She was most attentive and focused as we walked and talked!    Thanks Deb!   Ann

Deborah is an amazing coach. She is incredibly intuitive and is able to bring out things that I didn’t think of. In one call she was able to get me to a whole different perspective about a conversation with a family member that changed my entire way of handling it and improved the relationship in a big way!

I had the pleasure of being coached by Deborah Korbel while I was going through a big career and life transition, moving from being very busy making a living to retirement. Since I’m not a “retiring” kind of person, but rather one who invariably fills life with way-too-many things to do, I struggled with the choices of how busy to be, how much to drop, and feeling guilty about not making money. I needed help discovering what activities were central to becoming the person I had always wanted to be, but couldn’t afford to be.

My weekly sessions with Deborah helped me hone in on the essentials, set goals and feel accountable to working towards those goals. Deborah has a wealth of interesting tools to bring to the coaching process, and she’s a great listener, as well as a darned good cheerleader.

With Deborah’s help, I have ventured into a new career as an artist, and I’m also finding my voice as a columnist.

Thanks, Deb!

As individuals, we view the world through filters (based on our experiences, values, assumptions, etc.). Those filters will either limit what we see (like tunnel vision) or expand what we see (like a prism) and, thus, impact how we perceive and what we think about our circumstances. This, in turn, impacts how we show up in different situations.

The Energy Leadership Index assessment reveals what specific filters you’ve developed and how those filters are influencing the results you’re achieving.

Hope you’re intrigued, if not by the assessment itself, but the concept that you’ve unconsciously developed filters throughout your whole life, which may be holding you back from seeing the full potential of yourself and what your life and career have to offer.

Hmmm…what could life look like if only____?
