Hi. I’m Deborah Brewer.

“I’m passionate about helping you overcome hurdles and lead a happier and more balanced life.”

Here are some things you should know:

I grew up in Sydney, Australia, savoring life on Bondi Beach until I met a tall American and fell in love. In 1998 I moved to Los Angeles where I saw the devastation of homeless youth on Hollywood Boulevard for the first time. I felt compelled to help and started doing street outreach, service provision, and emergency intervention…it was not enough. I needed to have more of an impact, so after moving to New York City in 2001, I enrolled in the Master of Social Work program at Columbia University and completed grad school as a young mom to two kids.

It was during this time that my son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, aged 7. My husband and I had no experience with the disease, and after he was released from the hospital, I remember feeling overwhelmed by the responsibility of having a child with T1D. Today, we are living in Silicon Valley where I have combined more than 10 years working with children and families with a Masters Degree in Social work from Columbia University and many years of postgraduate clinical training to help other families thrive.
