I was introduced to Dana by a very close friend when I was looking for some targeted guidance. I had had, like many people, a very difficult time during the early parts of the covid pandemic which included losing a job and ending a long-term relationship. Though I had done therapy in the past as a young adult, I had spent the previous ten years very focused on my career. I felt pretty lost after losing my job and ending another long-term relationship that wasn’t working out. I knew that I wasn’t looking for a weekly therapy outlet or classic psychotherapy. My friend recommended Dana as working with a completely different framework and method. Dana held and holds space for me in a way that gave me the room to explore my own patterns and issues. She gave me a new perspective from which to approach my own life and my own experience. In particular, when it came to being able to acknowledge and look clearly at my emotional life and vulnerabilities which up until working with Dana I had learned to ignore or reject. She guided me towards a better knowing of myself with tools I will now always have. Dana was incredibly generous and flexible with her schedule and time, this was really helpful for me because for most of the period we worked together I was living nomadically and also working full-time. There is not enough space here to say how grateful I am to Dana and to my friend who introduced me to Dana; they both helped to transform my life and my ability to be present and witness my experience. I highly recommend Dana to anyone looking for spaciousness, kindness, and a safe place to delve into your emotional, bodily, and spiritual experience.
I loved working with Dana for so many reasons. Before I signed up for coaching with her I had the feeling that I wanted to change my life but I didn’t really know how or in what direction. I was drawn to Dana’s confident and kind approach to helping me build a new relationship with myself. With her gentle-yet-direct support, I began articulating my dreams and desires and, more importantly, believing in them and in myself. The work we did together was (mostly) really fun. Whenever it wasn’t or when I came up against resistance I knew I could also express these feelings to Dana and found that it was so healing to practice being radically honest about myself without any fear of judgment. I trusted her guidance because I saw how she balances her deep and nuanced experience of life with purposeful action and attention to what she loves. She gave me so much space to discover and explore new beliefs and held that space with care. My life has really changed as a result of our work together: in tangible ways (I went back to school, I fell in love, I’m changing careers to something I am passionate about), but also in less obvious ways: I experience a deeper trust in the mystery of the universe, I believe in myself more, and my capacity to sit inside uncomfortable feelings has expanded greatly. I am so grateful for Dana’s attention, support, and loving kindness on this journey and I wholeheartedly recommend her and her incredible offerings.
Working with Dana 1:1 was one of the most important investments I’ve ever made in myself. I came to her at a time where I felt conflicted about my personal and professional goals, and about what was really most important to me. Through our 6 months of work together, she created a supportive structure that allowed me to answer my own questions. As a result, I walked away with both clarity and confidence. I felt more connected with my body, my sense of spirituality, my relationships, and my goals. Since we completed our work together, so many pieces of my life that felt stuck before have moved into a new alignment that more deeply resonates. And I now feel like I can confidently take risks that I know are in pursuit of my higher purpose. I cannot recommend her enough.
When I sought out Dana as a coach – the pandemic had just begun in the states and I was without work, questioning all my decisions leading up to what brought me to this point. In every session Dana was an exceptional guide and would offer insight into the beliefs within the statements I was making, she helped me unearth my learned behaviors and to create new playlists and pathways for myself to take when confronted with my waves of insecurity and limiting beliefs.
I would walk away from every session with homework and insight into my life’s work, who I am, and how to support myself through rituals, routines, affirmations, and gentle appreciation for all aspects of this life.
I am forever grateful for the work that Dana and I did together and it was one of the most nurturing decisions I’ve made for myself, my future self, and especially during this time that the world is reflecting its own actions and slowing down.
When I first started to work with Dana, I was in a familiar, yet draining state of overwhelm. I knew that the way that I had been living my life and approaching my work – the hustle, the endless to-do list, the constant busyness- was not healthy for me. I wanted out but wasn’t sure how to break out of old patterns and move into my next phase. I kept saying to Dana “something’s gotta give”. And give it did! I am on a completely different path now, carving out a new life that will nurture my vitality instead of draining it. Dana helped me to identify and transform limiting beliefs, get in touch with my inner guidance, and most of all…begin to believe in myself. Dana is masterful. She will help you connect to yourself and your potential and purpose in new and life-altering ways. I’m so blessed to know and work with her.
Dana helped me re-discover my light and with her I went on a radial journey of learning to love myself once again. Dana lovingly helped me re-write my story of who I am. She helped me see the stories that had unconsciously been running the show of my life for 20 years. I can now say that I deeply believe in my own worth, my power, and my capacity to create change, both for myself and for the world. Dana led me to the most beautiful discovery I could have ever hoped for: self love. Working with Dana has brought me the liberation I’d sought for so long, but didn’t know how to access. She is a miracle worker. Dana is the real deal, doing transformative healing work that our world needs.
Dana is a truly special coach that helped me create energy in areas of my life that felt stagnant. She taught me the power of intention and guided me towards a true understanding of empowerment. Her guidance, encouragement and thoughtfulness helped me see things in ways I hadn’t previously. Her work is remarkable. Just like her.
I never believed in coaching until I met Dana. She was the person I could hear, and through this gift, was able to hear myself – my fears, hopes, desires, and dreams. At a time when I was making weighty decisions in my personal and professional life, Dana’s guidance enabled me to tap into the deep beliefs hidden beneath the surface of my everyday life and find clarity and vision for my future.
