Deb Torres, LCSW

Meet The Team


In 2017, when ICOL was formed, Deb's vision was to bring people into the world and leave the world with grace, integrity, and honesty. She learned that there is tremendous power when others come together to assist each other in life.

The Institute for the Cycles of Life provides counseling services, facilitating final wishes, birthing services (certified Doula), and geriatric case management. 

Deb is passionate about education, healthcare, and people. She is thankful for the opportunities to speak in the community about healthcare. When people come together and learn from each other from their personal experiences, is one of her greatest joys.

Deb has been married to a wonderful man, for the last 30 years.  They have two beautiful and amazing daughters, 22 and 21 years old.  She enjoys being outside, camping, walking, traveling and her favorite food is Thai curry.

Deb currently resides in the Chicago land area.
