Praise From Clients

“With interpersonal skill, patience, and her characteristic compassionate bluntness, Dana helped me voice my values, see and respect my personal needs, and re-define success, happiness, work, and joy in ways that now feel true to me.”
                                                     – Cristina, NYC

“Coaching helped me to get out of a really “stuck” place in my job and life. I was feeling no sense of purpose in my work and felt like I really hated my job but didn’t know what to do about it or how to even start thinking about something else I may want to do. Dana was able to help me explore my options, think about the word “job” in a brand new way and navigate my own feelings about work, what was really making me feel “stuck” and how to get un-stuck. I enjoyed every consultation with Dana and felt supported the entire time, in or outside of our consultations. I really appreciated how you could remember every detail of all of our conversations over many months. It made a difference knowing that you were caring about the outcome of our calls and you are an amazing listener. The whole experience was a game changer!”

-Rachel Darby, NYC

“I had a fantastic experience working with Dana. I was at a point in my career where I was not feeling fulfilled by my current job and was looking to do something very different – but had no idea what. I felt very stuck and wasn’t sure where to start. Dana helped me define my personal and professional strengths and the aspects of my life that brought me the most fulfillment. From there, we explored different career paths that aligned with what I had identified as being important to my life and my happiness, and she coached me through the latest best practices for landing a new job. I now feel significantly more confident in myself and my career choices. Thank you Dana!”

– Carolyn Tallents, NYC

“Dana has the amazing ability to cut through the noise and hone in the what is really important. She has been instrumental in coaching me through a challenging time in both life and career. I feel very grateful to have found an insightful and supportive coach who also helped me make the leap into my reshaping my future that makes me buzz with excitement. Thank you Dana!”

-Meggan Flaherty, Boston

“I worked with Dana recently on prepping for a major job interview. I was so nervous and unsure of myself and Dana provided first and foremost a sound listening ear and walked me through singling out my greatest fears and addressed them one by one. Her honest yet supportive approach allows you to tackle your inner fears from a place of greater calm and empathy. She managed to deal with both the emotional level and the strategic level of prepping for my interview. After our sessions I felt immeasurably more assured of myself and had great new tools in my arsenal to tackle the the upcoming interview and the the overall challenge of future job prospecting.”

– Bhavna Lal, NYC

“I found myself in both a physical and spiritual crossroads in my life. Struggling with major life choices, some minor (but discouraging) physical injuries and an overall lack of joy; I was lost in my own world and searching for peace. At nearly the same time, I met Dana. Coincidence? I think not. Dana’s guidance comes from a place of both love and knowledge. She is filled with encouragement, acceptance, and compassion …”                                                                                                                                                                                                  – Kristen, NYC

 

“I seriously can’t thank you enough for getting me to where I am in my life right now.  I am so happy and loving my new life.  I seriously feel like a different person from a year ago.  I’m so much more focused and confident.”

– Melissa, NYC

“Dana has been life changing. Yes, those words shouldn’t be used lightly but couldn’t be more true in my experience with her. I was at a point in my career, personally and professionally, where I felt like I had plateaued. I wasn’t feeling inspired or purposeful and needed to figure out why not. In my initial meeting with her I knew she was the person who could help me along this journey. Our sessions were thoughtfully prepared by Dana who is the consummate professional.  She pushed me to come to the answers myself vs. answering them for me.  I was able, through meaningful exercises, to find a renewed sense of purpose and drive. She helped me look at life through a different lens, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. I can’t recommend Dana enough. You will thrive in ways you never knew was possible. Thank you Dana for everything. I am so lucky to have met you!”

– Sarah, NYC

“When I began working with Dana, I was working 16 hour days and well on my sprint up the corporate ladder. Despite having landed a supposed “dream job”, I felt entirely drained of life, and had resigned myself to operating robotically from parts of myself that weren’t unique, powerful, or purposeful. While it’s often easy to identify what isn’t working in our lives, it’s another story entirely when it comes to how to fix it. Dana became my invaluable journey guide as I made the commitment to rebuild a life I was excited to get up for every day. Together, we broke down aspects of work and life into digestible pieces, questioned what was and wasn’t benefiting me, and most importantly – began the arduous process of re-building core concepts I had never had the guts to define myself. With interpersonal skill, patience, and her characteristic compassionate bluntness, Dana helped me voice my values, see and respect my personal needs, and re-define success, happiness, work, and joy in ways that now feel true to me. She helped me see my own value separate from the brands and job titles I clung to and continues to guide me as I now pursue new types of jobs, activities, and lifestyle shifts I’d never before considered. Dana is intellectually and intuitively wise, ambitious and humble in her desire to help others, and equally fluent in the workings of business and the human psyche. I’d recommend her to anyone who works for a living, especially those considering or going through a transition.“

– Cristina, NYC

“I never thanked you properly for helping me out and giving me the confidence and clarity to look for the jobs I truly wanted, and for demanding what I truly deserved. I am now working at the International Affairs Office at Sao Paulo’s State Government, and I know that I owe you for a big part of it.”

“Working with Dana has been wonderful! She has been so encouraging in my process to change my career direction. I was stuck in a rut where my creative juices weren’t flowing and ideas weren’t coming out clearly. Dana helped bring clarity to the process of beginning my new business plan asking poignant questions, suggesting new approaches to thinking about the model, and saying it was ok to confront my fears but then to knock them down! Working with Dana I’ve felt more excited about the possibility of going after my dream and know I can do it.”
