    Deborah Jestin, Transition Coach

    PCC, ATPC, M. Ed

    Deb is a certified Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the Adler Professional School's Faculty of Professional Coaching and is registered with the International Coach Federation. She holds a Holistic Wellness Certificate.
    Deb holds a Masters of Education, Teacher College Diploma & BA in Psychology.

    As a professional coach drawing on three decades as an educator and community leader, my goal is to inspire you to address the challenges that are standing in the way of becoming the best that you can be.

    With coaching, you can get a clearer understanding of what you want out of life and a new perspective on the strategies that will help you get there. The energy created from this self discovery process also can be a powerful force helping you to move towards your life’s goals.

    My focus and background is particularly suited to people in transition in their career, in their family lives and in their retirement.
