PROFILE DEBBIE MIKELS
Debbie brings great passion and energy to her unfolding life path. Her unique background demonstrates an unrelenting patience, understanding and compassion for all living things.
Her early years in the big city found her seeking outdoor pursuits and horses at every turn. She earned a degree in nursing, and worked for years as a neonatal nurse in several cities. Her pursuits of nature, running, hiking and riding horses grew. A spiritual curiosity developed. Her interest in spiritual culture expanded. She travelled the Andes of Peru with a renowned Shamanic teacher, explored the Native American spirituality with her husband and participated in a Crow Sundance Ceremony. She has studied with the Shamanic Institute and done Journeying as well as Dream Interpretation facilitated by instructors. She studied Donna Eden’s energy model, then went on to study from Bear Mckay and after three years became certified as an Energy practitioner.
The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® was developed by Melisa Pearce, a core founder since 1989, of the horse-human healing movement. The experiential nature of the method involves the horse as an active partner with the coach in the client’s exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine’s interaction, combined with positive coaching, somatic awareness guidance and Gestalt methodology, assists the client in examining their life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future.

THE REST OF THE STORY
Upon settling in Montana, Debbie and her husband created two businesses. The first was Well Approach Fitness, where she assisted in management as well as training clients. The second– and her passion– is Dream Dance Outfitters. Here, Debbie has years of experience as a trusted horseback trail guide in the Beartooth Mountains, Custer National Forest. Her credibility has caused three private ranches to call upon her for guiding guests on their own property. Debbie’s children are now grown and her husband Steve supports all her efforts as she seeks to deepen her connection to the Universal source.
Debbie and the herd come together not only as guide and horses, but to teach and show others the simple and compelling beauty and truths in nature. It is her love of people and their stories that encourage Debbie to use her training to help others. The Mckay method has given her the knowledge and tools to embrace each individual and welcome them as they allow energy to rebalance and restore them to an optimal level of health while enhancing their wellbeing.
The fitness center, Well Approach, is where Debbie meets clients to offer physical and energetic well-being.
As of 2017, she adds a new dimension to her repertoire, Equine Gestalt Coaching. After two years of study, she can now integrate the herd family into her healing dimensions.
Debbie is available for consultations in person or by phone at 406-425-0534.
