Deborah Sandella

Deborah Sandella has been helping others find themselves for over 35 years as a psychotherapist, educator and originator of the ground-breaking RIM Method. It wasn't until she journeyed half way around the world on a personal sabbatical to Australia that she realized she had become more aware of her client's feelings than her own. Her life-changing Walkabout spawned a personal transformation and inspired her to write the award-winning book and guided-meditation CD, Releasing the Inner Magician, Ways to Find Peace and Happiness. Bestselling author Joan Borysenko PhD calls Dr. Deb a "master healer" and visionary medical author Larry Dossey writes, "Dr. Sandella offers a practical, down-to-earth method of realizing the immense potential that lives within everyone." Dr. Deb frequently shares the stage with Jack Canfield, originator of Chicken Soup for the Soul Series, and their co-authored audio program Awakening Power is considered a powerful life-changing tool for having greater success and fulfillment. Deborah began her career in the early 70's by innovating two creative programs to treat psychiatric clients in their local community rather than sending them off to the state hospital. She was recognized for developing extremely successful programs that effectively cut length of stays from 2-3 weeks down to 3-4 days and allowed families to become intimately involved in the treatment of their loved ones. Dr. Sandella has been acknowledged with numerous professional awards; She was honored by her peers as "Outstanding Clinical Specialist," and received the "Research Excellence" Award for her doctoral dissertation funded by the Colorado Hospital Association. She received an EVVY "Best Personal Growth Book" Award, and her prosperity curriculums have been employed successfully by thousands of people. Deborah has a Doctorate in Human Communication and a Masters in Psychiatric Nursing. She has been an assistant professor at the University of Colorado, a manager at a Community Mental Health Center, and a private practitioner. Her greatest gift is the ability to combine her adept professional skills with her own keen intuitive abilities. Using her lessons as a mother, wife, and seeker, she teaches how to use one's intuition to live a balanced and happy life amidst the chaos of everyday life. In 1993, Deborah began giving personal growth workshops and seminars in New Mexico and Colorado. Since that time, her retreats have expanded to Australia, Costa Rica, Chile and Peru. She is a master weaver of gentle, yet profoundly transformative learning experiences, and highly values the Chinese proverb, "Tell me and I may listen, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I will do it." Deborah is a pioneer in developing techniques that break the mind-body barrier. Her RIM Institute offers products, workshops and individual sessions that significantly accelerate self-evolution and physical healing. Research found her book and CD significantly reduces stress-related illness. Currently, she trains others to become RIM Facilitators, so this powerful inner technology is easily available around the world.
