Dr. Deb Sandella

Deborah Sandella PhD, RN is author of the #1 International Bestseller “Goodbye, Hurt & Pain, 7 Simple Steps to Health, Love and Success.” She is an award-winning psychotherapist, university professor, and the originator of the groundbreaking Regenerating Images in Memory (RIM® ) Method, which is a heavily-backed neuroscience tool proven to reduce stress and improve quality of life.

Innovation isn’t new to Dr. Deb (as her students call her). She’s been producing results beyond expectation since her career began in the early 70’s; when she designed and implemented two creative community mental health programs to hospitalize psychiatric clients locally rather than shipping them to the state hospital. Leading her multidisciplinary team of psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker and psychiatric nurse specialist, they transformed medical hospital beds into acute psychiatric ones. Families, work colleagues and nursing staff were involved in the treatment and the program was extremely successful. Average length of inpatient stays dropped dramatically from 3-4 weeks to 3-4 days and clients’ reintegrated into home and work seamlessly.

Dr. Deb originated the Regenerating Images in Memory (RIM® ) Method following 20 years as a traditional mental health professional. Looking with new eyes, she set aside expectations of what she thought possible and impossible, and began to follow clients’ natural inner experience. She’s amazed at the speed and degree of transformation that happens when we trust the psyche to uncover root cause. She’s learned that each of us has a natural emotional operating system that inherently knows how to boost positive feelings and dissolve negative ones. We just need to know how to activate it similar to an emotional self-cleaning oven that makes life easier, yet you still need to turn it on. Bestselling physician Larry Dossey describes it as, “… a practical, down-to-earth method of realizing the immense potential that lives within everyone.”

Dr. Deb has been featured in the media–including USA TODAY, CBS, CNN, FOX, SELF and SHAPE. Research finds her work significantly decreases symptoms of stress-related illness and increases quality-of-life. She frequently shares the stage with Jack Canfield and is co-author of their “Awakening Power” meditation program. Her numerous professional awards include, “Outstanding Clinical Specialist,” “Research Excellence,” and an “EVVY Best Personal Growth Book Award.”
