"After just one consultation with Dana I felt equipped to help my friend who lost her daughter."
"All or our sessions are 'virtual,' but Dana's ability to offer a safe, comfortable space goes far beyond the limitations of technology. She is a natural at connecting with others, and she is able to listen intently, even when I'm sobbing."
" After my grandchild died, Dana helped me understand how to balance supporting my
son and daughter-in-law with my own grief."
"Dana taught me the skills I needed to
create a new frame of mind that is
more useful and positive in my life."
"I had no idea how often I thought and
said things, to myself, that got in the
way of my personal happiness and success,
until Dana used her precise intuition and
coaching skills to help me uncover them."
"I've made an amazing shift in my life
since I started working with Dana!"
"Dana helped me clarify my goals after my
last kid went off to college. Then she
helped me direct myself toward the resources
I needed to pursue my interest in writing."
“I was away from home, at college, and really
struggling. My parents offered to pay for Life Coaching
services and I found Dana. She’s really good! She helped me help myself. I really needed those skills. Except for college expenses, this is the BEST money my parents ever spent.”
"Dana helped me use my fear as my guide
in adjusting and rebuilding my life after I
broke up with my boyfriend of 3 years.
I'm actually looking forward to the future
and have never been happier than I am now."
"I felt powerless and put all my faith in the doctors.
I didn't ask questions or even know what questions to ask.
Then I hired Dana and SHE asked ME all the right questions,
helping me clarify my own. With her help, I was able
to take my body into my own hands and confidently
discuss my diagnosis and treatment with my provider."
"Dana helped me see that my illness does
not define me. It is not all of who I am.
It has been challenging and enjoyable to discover my ‘true essence’ underneath this medical stuff.
I am uncovering more and more in every session.''
"Dana helped me realize I could carve out a
purposeful life and also have a chronic illness."
Surviving Infant Loss
Growing Through Unwellness
"Connecting with other people, who experienced
loss, online from the comfort of my home, was very helpful, especially when the discussions were facilitated with Dana's compassionate, informed, and relatable vibe."
“I contacted Dana about developing a group for me and 7 other women who lost babies. We all met in an online support group but wanted someone to lead us as we progressed in healing from our loss. It has been amazing. She's so gifted and compassionate. And she knows the pain we are all experiencing. So we trust her."
"It has been so amazing to be part of Dana's group. It's weird that we all came together because of chronic illness and grief, but sometimes we experience so much laughter and joy."
