Debra Klich , MS Ed, LPC-IT, LMT, RMT

A creative professional with nearly 20 years of experience as a scientist, educator, and holistic healthcare practitioner, Debra brings a unique perspective to her clients. She created Orange Energy to offer strategies and services that help individuals reach a state of peaceful balance in their bodies, minds, and businesses.

When in a state of balance, individuals are most able to be their best, hear their intuition, creatively express themselves, identify solutions to challenges most easily and allow their body’s self-healing functions to be most effective.

Path to Holistic Health

Aware that a particularly stressful period in life was taking a toll on her health and well-being, Debra began searching for stress-relieving strategies. Frustrated with what traditional western medicine could offer, she began to practice forms of meditation and found Reiki to be an almost immediate source of relaxation and wellness.

Being trained as a scientist, she began looking to find answers to “why” these practices work. This led to a deeper study of energetic and psychological practices that now incorporate meditation, massage, Law of Attraction (LOA), chakra balancing, aromatherapy and color therapy into her daily life and work with clients.

Education and Career Background

Debra holds a B.S. in Biology and a M.S. Ed in Curriculum and Instruction, both from Purdue University. She began her career in the sciences as a veterinary technician and a research scientist in ecology and biomedical engineering. Her 15-year career as an educator has included teaching preschoolers through adults in a variety of formal and informal settings. Some of her favorite work has been the many hands-on, immersive museum exhibits and programs she researched and created as manager of the Imagination Station in Lafayette, Indiana, and as a member of the visitor experience team at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

She currently serves as the national administrator for an outreach educational program at a local children’s hospital. She is a certified Reiki Master Teacher and licensed Massage Therapist. In 2009, Debra launched Orange Energy, LLC, where she combines her expertise in education and healing arts to offer mind-body services as well as interactive classes and consultation on a variety of techniques for emotional, physical and organizational wellness.

Under the tutelage of  Dr. Caroline Loose in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Debra achieved the highest level of training, Master Teacher, in the Usui Shiki Ryoho tradition. Debra’s Reiki lineage has just four Reiki Masters between her and Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of this tradition.

Debra completed her massage therapy training at Wisconsin School of Massage Therapy. She is nationally certified and licensed in Wisconsin (# 10800-146) as a Massage Therapist and Bodyworker Therapist.

In 2011, Debra was fortunate to complete Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction in Mind-Body Medicine; a training for educators and healthcare professionals taught by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., and Saki Santorelli, Ed.D., two of the most influential leaders in bringing mindfulness-based meditative practices to the mainstream.


Spirituality and Perspective

With a spirituality deeply rooted in Roman Catholicism, Debra’s openness and natural curiosity foster a respect for a world of cultural and spiritual beliefs.

Her desire is to help others find their own sense of health and well-being in a welcoming, relaxed environment.

Says Debra, “My career has always led me to roles where I’m the liaison or translator, whether between the curator and museum visitors, the scientist and the educator, or the spiritual community and the lay community. I absolutely love learning and helping others learn new information.”

Her role as a Reiki Master Teacher and a massage therapist is a natural fit for Debra, who says, “During my training as a scientist, I always gravitated toward anatomy and physiology topics. In the past several years I have been drawn to learning all I can about mind-body healing techniques, meditation and ‘alternative’ medical practices. I also have always had an intuitive sense of touch and the benefits of touch, and as a twin, was born with a heightened consciousness about the presence and the state-of-being of another person.”

Her workshops and classes are highly interactive and immerse the participant in the relevancy of the content.

Debra is enthusiastic by nature and has a straightforward approach to working with clients and helping them achieve their wellness goals.
