"Behind every good writer is a wise and clear-minded editor. Deborah DeNicola is an exceptional developmental and copy editor. She possesses a rare combination of precision, sound judgment, exceptional patience, and flexibility that makes her a joy to work with. She has walked beside me during the arduous process of writing, believing in the potential of my work, telling me the truth firmly but gently, coaxing out of me the best work I was capable of. At moments of discouragement and textual logjam, she provided humor, hope, and a clear vision of the path through the difficulty. Any writer would be fortunate to have her as an ally."

Once the manuscript was finished, I felt much joy because I knew she not only had made my book sing like a bird but that I had a lifetime friend. Deborah DeNicola is my editor for life!"

Dream Image Testimonials


Deborah has a unique and enlightening method of guiding people through a dream. While the process incorporates Jungian concepts, it is not necessary to know anything about that realm. She walks a group through the process of interpreting a dream with ease utilizing each and every person in the group to explore the images, archetypes and meaning for the dream in question. Having taken two of her workshops and worked with her one-on-one, I strongly encourage anyone interested in learning more about what your dreams mean to get in touch with her and at least attend one of her workshops.

"Before working with Deborah, I did not know that my dreams were an incredible access point to my unconscious, to aspects of my multi-faceted human nature. Through the dreamwork with Deborah, I uncovered hidden aspects of myself that were in conflict and brought them into alignment and harmony. This resulted in a wonderful new sense of inner wholeness, peace and confidence."

"I am a skeptic, but a disturbing dream led me to seek Debra's help. She is a caring and intuitive dream analyst. She gently guided me through my memory and my body to unveil the symbolism and meaning of the dream. The awareness and insight was immensely helpful and peaceful. And, I have had amazing revelations with her every session since."

"Deborah delves into dreams with dramatic results. I had never known the shadow in the action until she introduced me to it. Now I note not only this meaning, but also interpretation of symbols; light and darkness and directions in our dreams. It means a lot to all of us in her open sessions, to learn from one another's experiences, and then to understand how these interact into all of our lives. To dream is to learn, and Deborah's methods of helping us to interpret our own, is to change the depths of our lives. I know that I am a better person as the result of my experience with Deborah, our dynamic dream developer."

"Thanks to Deborah's gentle, persistent and insightful questioning, my dreams continue to reveal a much deeper magic and power... the shark, whale and seal had messages I was finally able to hear. Understanding and integrating the energies of my dream characters is turbocharging my mental, emotional and spiritual awakening."

I’m absolutely blown away by the amount of information that is delivered to us in our dreams. From the time of day and the color green of the hotel room representing being fertile, to my Uncle, the other woman, and the little girl representing the different emotions within me. Wow! So much to learn. Although I tried to figure out my dream on my own, I had no idea that I didn’t know what I was doing. I can see how our conscious and unconscious work together. This was worth every penny. –

I've worked with Deborah's process on my dreams on a weekly basis for many weeks.
Her method of dreamwork has empowered me to utilize and break through barriers at a very deep level.

I never thought dreams could address the issues you're experiencing in every day life, but I've learned that is what they address most of the time!
