Meet the Team


Hello, my name is Debra Younger, and I am a Life Coach, Counselor and Therapist. My background includes being a Registered Nurse for 33 years, a U.S. Army Veteran, and an Ordained Minister/Pastoral Counselor. I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Missouri and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (L.M.H.C) in Iowa.

I have been a Pastoral Counselor for 10 years and a licensed therapist for 7 years. I specialize in trauma, abuse, and attachment issues.

Hello, my name is Shiloh and I am the “Star” of this team. I am a therapy dog, and I am here to support you in your journey of healing. If you want to play, I can play, if you need comfort, I’ll be there for you. I love to be petted, have my tummy scratched and just to be with people. I look forward to meeting you


In my many years, first as a RN and now as a therapist I have had the opportunity to work with and help many wonderful people. I have also had wonderful mentors in my life, who have unselfishly given part of themselves to me and fostered by growth as a person, minister and therapist. This is my opportunity to “pay it forward.”


I have been blessed with life experiences and education that allow me to help people who are struggling to face the challenges of life. This has allowed me to see how just some of the simplest things can make a positive impact on other people’s lives.

As a result, I have a deep desire to help others, in whatever way I can, to achieve their goal of living positive, healthy, satisfying and fulfilling lives.

The purpose of Dancing Healing Waters LLC’s website is to share information that will educate, teach, and empower others to overcome the challenges they face as a result of experiencing the negative events of life; which all of us encounter on our human journey.

It is my desire that everyone who connects with this site will go away better than when they came, feeling more empowered to succeed in their life journey.
