As your Individual Life Coach, Dana will customize a coaching program that is as unique as you are. Her plan will be based on your purpose for hiring her, as well as your personal life experiences, obstacles, and mind-set. She will provide effective exercises, lessons, and assignments specifically designed to help you clarify and meet, the goals you want to achieve.
All along the way, Dana will offer support and encouragement while holding you accountable for your own life. At times, this can be challenging and often frustrating. However, Dana is deeply intuitive and empathetic. These attributes, along with her communication skills, provide an excellent opportunity for you to delve deeply into your patterns of resistance while being supported and encouraged to move beyond them.
Dana has a holistic perspective and will draw from various theories and modalities when it comes to helping you learn, grow, and achieve your goals. Your work with Dana will be confidential. Sometimes your sessions might involve revealing and grappling with uncomfortable or hurtful life experiences. Dana likens this to the mud that nourishes the beautiful, blossoming Lotus flower. It is necessary.
Although Life-Coaching is therapeutic, it is not therapy. Yet, Dana's education, training and experience in the fields of Mental Health, Social Services, and Marriage & Family Counseling has given her a deep understanding of the body, brain, mind, and cultures of humanity.
"NO MUD, NO LOTUS"
Thich Nhat Hanh
Dana adheres to a strict confidentiality protocol. She will not reveal to anyone that you, your family, or your business/organization contacted her, or are her client; nor will she disclose any information obtained during the course of your coaching relationship without your express permission to do so--with some exceptions which Dana will discuss with you during your initial consultation. Your time and space with Dana (in-person, virtually online, phone, email, text) is considered sacred, and she has the utmost respect for your privacy.
“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.”
