About Diane

Welcome and Thank You for considering taking this journey together to achieve clarity and reclaim your energy and passion for life!

HOW DID I GET HERE?

It completely broke my heart when my husband passed away unexpectedly 15 years ago. I was shocked at the depth of loss and sorrow I felt. I also lost my sense of inspiration and motivation. I not only experienced my grief emotionally but physically as well.

The other thing that happened, although people were very kind to me, when I talked about my husband, they got very quiet and uncomfortable, and I felt isolated and really lonely. I realized they did not know what to say, but that realization did not comfort me.

I knew it was critical that I talk to someone who would understand what I was going through and would listen unconditionally. So, I put myself into counseling for a year and found that being able to talk freely, share my thoughts, experiences and fears, was instrumental in my healing process.

I was so impressed with the process that I decided to get training to work with people who were grieving and in transition. I took professional workshops, seminars and attending conferences, that deepened my understanding and skills to support my clients to handle difficult transitions, find clarity in their day-to-day life, reclaim their energy and passion for living.

As a Transition and Grief Coach, my mission is to support my clients restore energy and passion for life, follow their vision and in some cases a return to their spirituality.
