"Diane is one of those people who gives everything her all. She is incisive, focused and extremely genuine. She has a great sense of self. I met Diane when she was going through a transition and trying to figure out the next part of her career. She had lofty goals - all of which she has reached. She created a plan and a vision for herself and followed that to develop business relationships and a consulting role that suits her to a t. What I admire most about Diane is her willingness to look deep and stay true to herself. She has turned her passion into an opportunity to share her secrets and helps others take the same steps she took to create their own path. Whether you are looking for business or personal growth, I highly recommend working with Diane."

Senior Career Transition Coach - Adjunct, BPI Group
"Diane uses a unique inter-personal process which is very powerful. I had previously worked with other goal systems in various corporate and personal contexts, but, through her guidance, I found major progress in developing a mission statement at an important transition stage. Diane made it a very practical and rewarding experience."
"I am counting my blessings today because I was privileged to work with Diane on creating a mission statement for my purpose. The process and results were surprising and better than I expected. Her inquiries into my passions, my authentic longings, and so much more brought me into more inspiration, excitement and direction. I felt completely comfortable and safe to be my most vulnerable and expansive self. Her gentle, wise, warm nature, focus, and quiet power really helped me synthesize my mission with a flow and peace about it. I felt lead in a natural way, my favorite way of all.
I now have a clear direction in one sentence, a new mantra for my business and life. It all flows together. Now I can actively put it on my website, business cards, blog, and keep it as focus when I am planning personal and business events. I am so grateful. I feel like she helped write a book in one sentence about my life purpose in just one or two hours. I’m looking forward to the next step of creating my vision statement."
Katie Klatt Bowen, M.Ed.

"Diane has been my business coach for less than 6 months and I'm completely satisfied with what she has done for my practice, Red Coral Acupuncture, and my non-profit organization, Himalaya Project. Results, results, results! For both of my companies, Diane has helped me establish my goals and take practical steps in realizing them. I've grown my practice considerably since we began working together, which has led to a increase in clientele, therefore, her services are of high value to me. What I'm most pleased with is that she's shown me how to take control of my path in my non-profit business and personal business, which has increased the quality of my life considerably. For that I'm grateful and would highly recommend Diane to my colleagues interested in bringing their goals to fruition."

"My thanks for a deeply engaging, thoughtful and provocative Vision Statement workshop. I came – not exactly skeptical – but wondering if such a presentation could be useful to me. I came away with a decided, "Yes!" Powerful, stimulating, and one I would highly recommend."
"Thank you very much for your excellent workshop on identifying our Mission Statement. While I thought I had my mission statment pretty well mapped out, your workshop helped me better state what it is. You've been an inspiration to me!"
