PUSH San Diego
Over the course of her career, Deb has helped thousands of families in their childbirth journey. She has a renowned expertise in helping families overcome fertility obstacles, maintain a healthy full-term pregnancy, and prepare for an optimal birth experience. She also provides support during labor and birth with acupuncture, acupressure, and massage therapy, and is highly skilled in postpartum recovery care and optimizing C-section recovery time.
Deb brings a remarkable degree of empathy to her practice at PUSH San Diego. Her first daughter, Mia Belle, was stillborn at term from an umbilical cord accident in March of 2001. Her second daughter, Lauryn, was born a year later. Both girls instill Deb’s work with an unparalleled degree of inspiration and passion that enable her to compassionately support other women through the childbirth process, including support for miscarriage and recurring pregnancy losses.
Even outside of her work at PUSH San Diego, Deb continues to follow her passion for integrative medicine. In 2006, she founded the Integrative Medical Discussion Group to bring together Eastern and Western medical students. She also served as the director of Alumni Services and Community Education at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego and as the Community Partnership Committee co-director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. She’s currently an event coordinator and continuing education provider for licensed acupuncturists, and was recognized as an Alumni Leader in the field of Chinese Medicine and Integrative Medicine in 2019 from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
