Who We Are

What We Stand For

Of course you want to know more about “who” we are and what we stand for before you invest in yourself and our services.

So, we’re going to let you know a bit about us… without the fancy titles and labels.

Before Serenity Matter(ed), I (Deborah) spent many years in the business world as a CPA, banker, entrepreneur, and later as a psychotherapist. I hold a Master’s in Counseling Psychology with a Holistic Specialization. My interest in holistic principles grew out of a personal health challenge that doctors said was incurable.

In the process of recovering, I awakened to an inner power that transformed my life. This transformation also lead me to co-author the book How the Fierce Handle Fear.

I (Michael) chose to begin my career as a self-employed hairstylist and then as a carpenter and building contractor. Later, I applied my innate gifts and passion for personal growth towards ministerial counseling and landscape photography. My path reflects a great amount of self-study and inner wisdom stimulated by a near-death experience at the age of 16.

Since that experience, I have cultivated a deep spiritual connection and holistic understanding of well-being that I draw upon for myself and my clients.

Mutually, we have backgrounds in coaching, hypnosis, EFT, Serenity Vibration Healing® (SVH), ministerial counseling, psychotherapy, meditation, and PSYCH-K™.
