Kind words about my work
I began speaking with Danielle a few month ago when I felt a bit lost in my life in terms of dating relationships. All else was great; work, family, friends but I just felt like I had so much to give to someone special and couldn’t seem to get this part of my life to work. I knew i deserved more… so, how to get it?
Danielle has such a warm soul that you instantly feel at peace in your discussion and that you can trust her with your thoughts & feelings. She offered me a safe place to lower my shields and show vulnerability to get to the heart of the issues that were standing in the way of my happiness. She taught me to put me first, I am who I have for life and I am my first priority. In loving me first, I am capable of receiving the love I deserve in a healthy way.
We focused first on the understanding of me and who I am, what experiences have created my current me in order to understand why Im at this point of my life. Once we understood me, we had discussions that delved into current situations as well as how they tied into my past. Most importantly we always stuck to me, what I needed, why I felt the way I did and how to achieve my happiness.
Within a few weeks I noticed a change within myself, a new perspective if you will. It was exciting to notice it and see the change in my behavior. It was a “letting go” of what I couldn’t control and shifting the focus to me. It was an internal reassurance that it will work out and all I can control is me and what I deserve and demand for myself. Know me & Love me and it will come. :) Thank you Danielle for that.
Danielle sent me inspirational messages and re-cap notes after our sessions that I keep with me to keep me on track. She still feels like a close friend who cares about my future. Its a good feeling to know she is there and is invested in me. I strive to do her proud in my daily ventures, not just for her but because I know that doing her proud is doing Anna proud and will give me all that I Deserve and Dream of.

I met Danielle Dowling at a conference last year and the woman gave me life in the span of five minutes. This motivational speaker/ life coach/ amazing new friend radiates light and positivity. She is pure fabulosity. I think within five minutes I had a breakthrough with her… and that is real.

I love Danielle Dowling’s inspirational coaching. She’s like that wine drinking, straight talking best friend who will eat cupcakes with you but then drag you to go for a run with her to work off the calories. All the while telling you that you’re a pretty awesome person no matter how many cupcakes you eat. Does that makes sense? Either way: I agree with her: Expect Amazing!

I knew many coaches I could work with, but none felt quite right. What I wanted more than anything was to feel like I was talking to a girlfriend, a very wise girlfriend. I found Danielle online and after reading over her website and a couple blogs, I knew she was the one. Love at first read! I had business stuff, relationship stuff, and life stuff…Danielle was the perfect fit. She is super smart, fun, generous, compassionate, supportive, a fantastic listener, and WISE. She held the space beautifully for me to download, sort, celebrate, and decide…I’m stepping into my next chapter feeling aligned and refreshed. Thank you Danielle!

I religiously read your blog, it has been inspiring and truly helped me through all my process. But specially wanted to thank you for your last blog post, it couldn’t have been more opportune for what’s happening in my life now.

I don’t know how you do it but every email hits and brings clarity to the exact moment of life I am in. Pretty amazing & I love seeing a new email in my inbox because it means my day is going to be that much better. I share them with friends every time! Just wanted you to know how much you rock! Keep it up girl.

I’ve spent the last few years reading blogs, writing letters and working on myself by digging up all of the good, the bad and the ugly in the hopes of freeing my present/future from the traumas of the past. Blogs like yours remind me that I’m not alone in my frustrations or my disappointments when my progress gets detailed by some ugly monster in my closet.

Over the past couple of weeks my personal and professional life have been going through MASSIVE shifts. I know when I go through big change, change that rocks me to my core of self-worth and identity, it’s easy to focus on doubt, fear and a “need” to go back to the old, even if it’s no longer good for us. When I read Danielle Dowling‘s blog, it encourages me to focus on what I know is right and to look at all the beautiful people in my life who believe in me and love me, there’s no way I can fail. Thanks Danielle!

I’ve been married for 16 years and the past few years the relationship hasn’t been good. When you mentioned that you wanted to make your boyfriend feel loved and feel safe, something inside of me melted. I realized that I needed to give. I made up my mind right then and there that I was officially “dating” my husband again. The very next day my new thought process changed us dramatically. Since then, I feel like we’re better than ever. We’re giggling like newlyweds and have that passion back. I cannot thank you enough!

Danielle Dowling is kind, warm, accepting, and non-judgmental. She is always engaged and is very flexible to my needs. She utilizes a variety of skills to help teach me how to focus on my present as well as past and future concerns. She excels at helping me understand the true meaning of what I am saying rather than diagnosing my problems or imposing solutions. She creates a safe environment to encourage positive change.

Thanks for your insight Danielle! You are able to put into words feelings that I cannot express and feelings that I am ashamed to admit.

For the past year and a half I have felt lost in my career, after just two sessions with Danielle I realized what I really want to be doing and it all of a sudden became very clear what I needed to do. She helped me formulate the tools in order to move forward and take the next step and I now have a sense of calm knowing where I want to be.

Danielle is one of the most incredible women that I have ever met, she has not only helped me professionally but personally as well. She helped me through one of the hardest times in my personal life thus far and without her support I don’t know how I would have coped. Danielle is so down to earth and genuine that no matter what I am feeling I know I can turn to her without hesitation and I always walk away feeling more and peace and connected with myself and my purpose. Thank you Danielle!

Her natural understanding of people has always made her wise beyond her years. Danielle is an excellent listener, confidant, ally, spirit booster, and advocate.

Danielle posses an incredible capacity for empathy and zero’d in immediately on my anxiety and overwhelm regarding a career change and pursuing my passions. We weighted the pros and cons of staying “safe” and traveling the road of least resistance with the great fulfillment and pride I would feel by pursuing my heart’s desires. We deeply analyzed what it would mean to me to set out and accomplish my new goals. By the end of our 45 minute discussion I had decided which university I would be earring my doctorate degree at! I went home feeling at peace and confident in my decision. She was pivotal in supporting and inspiring me through my most significant life transition to date!

Kind words about my book The Chemistry of Love
I finally finished the book and quickly regretted how long it took to actually to sit my booty down and read it! It was fantastic! Very interesting and insightful. I actually wish I could meet up with you right now for wine + awesome conversation about my thoughts on the book and how interesting I thought it was! Your writing style is awesome and so are you. It kept me very engaged!
Tara Harmon: Creative Marketing Consultant, San Diego, CA
I just finished the Chemistry of Love and I love the stories about the couples and how they met. Your book is going to help a lot of women who feel abnormal for being sensitive, or crazy when they fall in love, fall out of it, and take the dive for life. They will get a chance to see exactly what goes into being serious with someone, and accepting who they are, but also acknowledging these things before they get married. It will allow them to have a much more in depth look into the way the brain functions, and how people function whether it be a man or a woman.
Katie Hummel: Musician, New York City, NY
I love how funny and witty The Chemistry of Love is. The section that addresses the bio-chemicals is so informative and interesting. I enjoyed how it addressed so much of how and why women feel the way they feel about love. I found it comforting that it is the norm and not the exception to feel like your “crazy or insecure. Thank you!

GREAT blog for girls, women, men, PEOPLE, of all ages. We all need a dose of the truth from Ms. Danielle Dowling sometimes!
Linda Wang, Esq. Founder Cambrian Law Group, P.C. LA, CA
This was an amazing read! I love the science behind the mind. I read it while I was in Jamaica at a wedding and all of the girls loooooved it!!! So interesting. Everything resonated with them. I was able to read them snippets in each chapter. I would say that they responded most to the beginning-the science behind love and lust, the loss chapter and the end about taking inventory about your current relationship and how important it is to communicate with your future spouse about what your expectations are. Whip-smart and sassy. Everyone must read it!
Elaine Masci: Realtor- New York City, NY
It’s such a fun read. The language is sassy, the information truly interesting and I think that it clearly defines the basis for the work you do. I really enjoyed the successful couple profiles – how sweet and inspiring! I feel like you are a true asset to your LA and NYC niche. I could totally picture you being one of those “expert love & relationship counselors” that Patti from Millionaire Matchmaker brings in to ‘wake up’ some of her more challenging clients!
Amanda H.: Mom- Boston, MA
Danielle is one of the most understanding and emotionally intelligent people I know. Her support and the insights captured in The Chemistry of Love helped me cope through a very difficult divorce. It gave me the 411 on the emotional and physiological factors that made it so difficult to let go of a relationship that had long run its course. I can’t thank her enough for helping me gain the courage to walk away, reminding me that there’s still hope for meeting Mr. Right, and the confidence to go after it.
