My clients put in the work to creating lasting change in their lives, and I’m grateful to play a part in that process.
Working with Dana provided me with the encouragement I needed to help me improve my career and be more fulfilled at work. Dana helped me organize my thoughts, assess my current situation and create goals that I could actually achieve. The weekly homework assignments motivated me to make continuous progress toward my goal of finding satisfaction in my job and create a plan for my future career success. Dana is a great listener and her support allowed me to reflect on my current situation and see how I could improve myself.

I wanted a coach because I knew I needed some help getting to where I want to be. I felt overwhelmed at work constantly, and I was also having trouble taking time outside of work to focus on the things that would make me happier.
Through Dana’s coaching, I was able to reframe things. Her approach felt tailored to me, and she took the time to really listen and understand my thoughts and feelings. She was approachable and personable, even when the things we talked about were difficult. She asked good questions to help shift me into where I wanted to be.
Coaching with Dana was a great experience, and it’s helped me be kinder to myself about a lot of things. Since working with Dana, I’ve been much happier at work. I’ve been able to more effectively prioritize my work load, and I feel more relaxed. I’m able to do my job better. I’ve also improved my work-life balance, and I’ve been able to make time for side projects outside of work that I had wanted to do for a while.

Coach Dana brings so much skill, humor and intuition to each session. I appreciated Dana’s confidence and ability to hear what I was not saying. Dana’s coaching was motivating and left me feeling much more confident in myself, energized and excited about my life.

I loved my coaching sessions with Dana! Over the course of our sessions, she helped me discover the real motivations behind some of my behaviors. She helped me see that by identifying my motivations and being aware of them when I am making everyday choices, I am more likely to see when my choices are not in line with my overall personal goals. Dana showed me how to break down my big goals into smaller goals so that goal achievement actually seems do-able rather than daunting! She managed to prompt me and provide guidance while maintaining complete respect for my personal process. She is easy to talk with and genuinely cared about my growth. I absolutely recommend her if you are looking for a coach.
