Kind words about my work

I am very grateful to have Danielle’s support and counsel in my business and in my personal life. Danielle has helped me in getting things done on the goal-line and also in being more free to go out and date. I have now set up my business consulting practice thanks to the accountability, advice, and encouragement from Danielle. I also have been super busy dating this whole summer almost on a weekly basis! Overall, I have experienced an increasing amount of joy and satisfaction in many areas of my life.

Before I hired Danielle, I was actually quite frustrated with myself in my romantic life because dating just seemed so overwhelming. I found myself not willing to go out and meet guys. Of course, I didn’t get a date! However, after I started coaching with Danielle, I listened to Danielle’s encouragement and became more open. I went online dating, speed dating, and even dating at Wholefoods!  I met guys everywhere and it was a great experience for me to get out. I realize that there are actually a lot of good guys out there. While I have yet to meet the One, I am hopeful and do not feel stress like I used to about dating. It is a BIG progress for me that my heart is finally open once again.

On the practical business front, I also didn’t have much movement before our coaching, mostly out of my personal fears. My energy was scattered because I was running a business in Chicago, another business here in LA, and I knew I wanted to change direction, but I just couldn’t make myself do it. Now, my head is much more clear about what I want. It did take some work, but Danielle patiently and lovingly guided me through each step. Now, I finally feel like I have a handle on my business and how I generate income. My business life is now coming into alignment with my personal values.

Thank you, Danielle, for the all of your support, guidance, and inspiration. You are such a role model and example to me that I can have ALL that I want in my life. I look forward to our continuing coaching together.

-Xixi Cheng, Business Consultant & Spiritual Psychologist

I was stuck, no motivation, no direction, overwhelmed by everything and at the same time feeling like I wasn’t doing enough. Nothing was obviously wrong, but I was never satisfied with where I was. Frozen by the guilt for feeling like there should be more and disappointment of not doing something about it.

After meeting with Danielle, this fog is on its way to clearing, the clutter has become manageable and I find joy in the steps along the way. She has helped me become aware of myself and taught me to lean into fear and worry so that it doesn’t stop me from doing so much more.

I’m more productive at work and a better partner to my significant other. In fact, after 8 years of dating, I am recently engaged. I can’t help but think that my improved outlook may have had some influence on this new development. I am forever grateful for the guidance she has given me to help shift my perspective and attract positivity. She is a constant source of inspiration and I look forward to continuing the journey!

For the past 17 years, my core aspirations have been personal growth and finding joy independent of external circumstances. I’ve tried yoga, retreats, therapy, group sessions and multiple religious avenues in the hopes of achieving this. Instead, I’ve spent a great deal of money and ended up more confused. Knowledge of WHY I act in a particular way is important, however, introspection can only bring me so far. I’m about as self-aware as I ever would want to be in this life; self-knowledge is not the issue. Rather, my struggles come from not taking the proper actions to get different results.

This is where Danielle changed things and consequently changed my life. She continues to find new ways to remind me that a belief is just a thought I keep on thinking. She has cultivated real life and actionable items for me to take in order to begin a real period of transformation. Through her targeted guidance I have been able to see results quickly.  Not only have the “outsides” started looking different, but more importantly,

I finally understand the concept of self-worth and self-love, the most priceless gifts in my life. This is a direct result of my implicit trust in her guidance. Moreover, Danielle’s empathy, wisdom and true compassion make her the best type of coach I could ever envision.

-Jacqueline Kravette, Los Angeles, CA

I was going through a lot and really wanted to explore working with a life coach. I did a Google search and found Danielle. I reviewed her website and some of her posts. Her material and message really resonated with me. From what I saw, she seemed super knowledgeable, very approachable and both funny and fun.I’ve been working with Danielle for a little over four months now and it’s been amazing!  I love her approach to coaching and to life.
She is very knowledgeable, straightforward and fun to work with. I feel like I can be myself. I’ve been able to re-focus on the important stuff in my life.After our sessions, I feel a renewed sense of purpose and a clearer vision of where I want my life to go. I’ve been able to incorporate her advice into so many aspects of my life with great success.
She’s also very punctual and often sends inspiring feedback from our conversations the day after a session. I go back often and re-read her emails in between sessions.I know I am capable of greatness and worthy of happiness.
Danielle’s just helping me get “there” a lot faster.
I recommend her to all my friends and am truly grateful I found her.

-Mary Hawkins, Los Angeles, CA

Two words that I use to describe Danielle … LIFE CHANGER! Thanks to Danielle I feel lighter + boundless. She’s helped me to rediscover my true self, to redirect my energy + focus on the things I needed to get done. She has shared effective tools with me to help settle my soul + set me on the right path to accomplish my dreams. I will be forever grateful for meeting Danielle and consider her a dear friend!

Timing. Is. Everything. Danielle serendipitously came into my life at the right moment, the right *exact* time… a time where I *knew* I needed radical and sweeping changes, but felt paralyzed…. I could not find the focus or the clarity to get me to my next level, the next shining step in my life that I knew I needed to take. I was spinning my wheels and not getting anywhere, and I knew I needed someone or something to help get me there. Danielle helped me with such focus, clarity, compassion. She comes from such a loving place and empowered me to take my life back into my own hands. To see who I am, what I am fully capable of, and best of all- empower ME to get to where I need to be, all with an approach of loving and kind guidance. Danielle helped to awaken the power that was within me, that I knew I had, but that had been suppressed, repressed and forgotten. She listens, she talks and she guides with empathy, grace and love that translates into tangible results.

After a year of therapy, I still felt the same feelings of emptiness and unhappiness. Determined to overcome these feelings I hired Danielle. We worked together over a couple of months and she was an absolute blessing. Not only did we define the issues that were causing these feelings, but she also provided some tools to help me move into the light. Through working with her I realized how special my life is. Danielle provides a safe environment to speak freely and her method makes one truly reflect on themselves through love and positivity. I couldn’t be in a happier place in my personal and professional life; Thank you Danielle!
— Christina Diaz, Young Professional

Danielle is wise beyond her years.  She siphoned through my personal, professional and life challenges, helped to redirect my thoughts and emotions, and offered solutions to looong-standing issues I had battled with.  Her soft spoken, compassionate heart and non-judgmental approach made me feel like I was talking to a sister or girlfriend.  Danielle is able to articulate what sometimes is difficult to put into words.  Such a kind, patient and supportive soul.  Danielle has been a beautiful gift to me, and I think of her as a friend. Forever grateful.
— Chandra Jean, Beauty Coach + Founder, The U Project

I came to work with Danielle during a period of change in my life. Unlike other counselors I’ve worked with in the past, Danielle quickly honed in on a couple of key patterns that I have struggled with, and am continuing to learn how to deal with. Working with her was about finding practical, no-nonsense solutions to these roadblocking patterns, and it was always done with humor and grace. I instantly connected with her, even over the phone, and her straightforward approach helped me move through a difficult period with far more ease than I could have predicted. I cannot recommend Danielle enough!
— Courtney Scott, London England

After a very unexpected divorce, I found myself with a head full of a hundred voices telling me what to do with my life, but pointing me in all different directions.  I knew that there was more to life; I wasn’t meant to just go out and get any ol’ job, and merely exist for the rest of my life.

Working with Danielle helped me to sift through all those voices, to find the ones that were most important to getting to my truth.  And once I figured out what that truth was, we started setting goals and focusing on them.  Focus, sweet sweet focus.  And I never would have had it if I hadn’t worked with Danielle.  I cannot tell you how much more confident I am knowing that I didn’t pick the easiest and quickest options, but Danielle helped me do the soul-searching that helped me figure out just how important it was to me to go back to school and get my degree, the right degree. But our work didn’t just stop there.  Many years ago I started a spiritual journey – the kind where you find yourself asking so many questions but not finding any of the answers.  Again, Danielle helped me down a path where I’m finding my answers and finding my truth.  And she makes it so easy – even though I make everything so hard.

I have found myself on the other side of a MAJOR transition, thanks to Danielle.  And I’m so much happier and so much more secure knowing I’m on this path of adventures and not crazily spinning out of control as I was before our work.
— Donna Chance, Dallas, TX

Danielle Dowling is a visionary life-changer.  She will make you question everything you are, turn your universe upside down and build you back up into a new, authentic, fearless YOU. She is the non-judgmental best friend who pushes you to question everything you ever thought you were.

Sometimes you go through life doing things because you “should”.  Society says you “should”, family says you “should”, friends say you “should”.  She forces you to look inward and ask yourself the authentic, earth shattering question, “what do YOU want?”What are you currently doing that doesn’t align with your pure truth.  She challenges you to look at your habits and annihilate any inauthenticity surrounding your actions.  She leads you down a path of exploring who you really are, why you are here and kick the unnecessary habits of fear, worry, and anxiety.

She makes you believe that anything is possible. Because it is.  I am a truly empowered woman because of our work together.
— Danielle Chayot, NYC, NY

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 I’m 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 came to Danielle after a period of great change in my personal and work life, and after a few good knocks to my confidence. I was craving focus and direction and desperate to create a life that left me excited to start every new day. In a couple of months Danielle has help me find the way back to my authentic self, strive against my weaknesses and reconnect with my strengths. I am pursuing my passion projects, creating balance and reaching for everything life can bring. I can honestly say I wouldn’t be who I am today without Danielle and cannot express enough gratitude for how she has changed my life. My days are now filled with exploring, dreaming and whole-hearted living – and I have a feeling this is just the beginning!
— Clare Thomas, London England

As someone that is seeking to be my best self, I am so glad that I contacted Danielle.  She has been so helpful in listening, guiding me, encouraging me and giving me tools to help myself.  When you get to know Danielle you know that she is doing what she is meant to do, she is just THAT GOOD.  She’s also a riot and I feel like I’ve made a friend.
— K. Vinot, Atlanta, Georgia

I’ve worked with many coaches and teachers and a therapist, but never felt the depth of connection as I did with Danielle. We’ve only recently begun working together but from my first session with her, she hit the nail on the head and pinpointed exactly what I was struggling with in my life, both professionally and personally. She cuts through the chatter and gets to the point, deciphering the deeper meaning out of what I’m trying to express, and giving me the tools to find clarity and understanding. When I’m working with Danielle, I feel like she really “gets” me and sees the best in me – then helps me to see it in myself. I’m so grateful to have met her and look forward to continuing working with her!
Christina Topham, Writer & Chef

Danielle is someone I feel I was meant to have in my life. I was feeling stuck, overwhelmed and pretty depressed when I happened upon an article she wrote. I went straight to her blog and devoured most of her blog in one day. I knew she was the who would help me get out of the negative cycle. Since working together, I’ve been able to put different aspects of my life into a better perspective and take serious action moving my business forward. She was able to force me to look at the real issues I was dealing with while still seeming like a best friend you’ve had for ages. She is an amazing coach and I am so thankful to have her in my life!
— Danielle Zeigler, Health + Business Coach, Danielle Zeigler Coaching

WOW – isn’t it incredible how hard one can fall from the punches that life delivers? What a gift to have found Danielle! It has been the needed hope and belief that I was looking for to build the change I knew I needed.  She listened and said yep that is messy and complicated but you get to choose how you deal with it and what happens next.  She has been like that amazing girlfriend who guides you and reminds you of how incredible you are and that you are capable of being the change agent for yourself. The stuff we know but doubt and fear when roads get rocky.  While I asked Danielle to help me solve and prioritize for what felt like a massive uncontrollable vortex of life chaos – she has really lead me to adopt a new life philosophy which will always be bigger than any obstacle and will provide grounding and application to all my next chapters.
— Kristi Lind, Managing Director- Omnicom, Endurance Athlete. Laguna Beach, CA
My experience with Danielle is immeasurable in value. I started seeing her because I was at a transition point and knew I wasn’t living my best life but couldn’t pinpoint the problem.  Within the first session she helped set me on a path towards peace by untangling my thoughts and circumstances with compassion, wisdom, and guidance.  Danielle was able to find the language and techniques that extracted the most out of me so that I was eventually able to get out of the fog and live the life I intend rather than be a victim.   Danielle’s coaching is something I always look forward to because I know that regardless of what is going on in my life, she will help me find the best path for me which in turn is energizing, positive, and empowering.

Every time I feel my head is just going to pop right off my head, I contact Danielle.  Danielle always makes me feel like I’m talking with my girlfriend.  She is professional, but at the same time very real and caring.  Often with a scattered brain, I babble about three different issues – interchangeably.  Danielle somehow, in a very short period of time, hones in and gets to the meat. Danielle is not only friendly and understanding, she knows how to say it like it is without judgment and offers alternatives and tools to help clean out the mess. Danielle is an organizer of emotions – unclutters the mind.  She validates where you are, but helps you see forward and move in that direction. She has given me tools to deal with the very large life-changing situations I have recently found myself in.  Thank you, Danielle!

Danielle did a soul sparkling job on me!

I hired Danielle to support me with some blocks I was experiencing in my life. She did a fabulous job at identifying underlining issues that I needed to come to term with. Working with her is pow wow amazing! We digged, scooped out some stuff that need to come out and now I am at a place of creation in life. Danielle has a gift at reading pretty quick in between the lines and calling one out on sabotaging behaviors with grace or even with just a question! It is scary-good how she does it. I experienced quite a few “I better recognize signs.” I feel lighter in a sense. I went through a soul and emotional cleansing working with her. Since working with Danielle-I have taken consistent bold actions in my life which are impacting my business, my life and my happiness.
— Luz, Founder, Happily Working

Working with Danielle has been a wonderful experience for me.  I find that she holds a strong and warm space for us to really get some work done.  I love the way she presents the world, how positive she is, and yet very practical, really encouraging me to be brave in specific ways.  She has really given me room to re-examine some old fears I’ve had that have kept me stuck for a long time and I am so grateful for our work.  Particularly, I have found myself to be more brave in my art, which means the world to me.  Thank you, Danielle, I am so grateful to you.
— Wendy Piatt, Singer & Songwriter

If you’re looking for someone to not just listen, but to get to the root of your roadblocks and teach you the life-long skills you need to create real, positive transformation in your life, Danielle is your answer. She is smart, spirited, empathetic, and an incredibly insightful coach and mentor. I came to Danielle looking for help with anxiety, but I’ve come to find that the wisdom she teaches is universal and applicable in ALL areas of life. Since working with Danielle, I’ve learned how to effectively manage fear, become more productive, begin (and stick to!) healthier exercise and eating habits, grow my business – and most importantly, how to be grateful and HAPPY! I can honestly say that working with Danielle has been hands-down the best investment I have made in myself.
— Meg Sylvia, Founder of Artful Publications
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!
— Hollie Flynn, Wellness Spark

Let me say I’m not a touchy feely type as Danielle can attest but she has eloquently coaxed what had started out as a tiny meow into a gentle roar.  I gain confidence every hour of everyday.  Mostly, she has given me the tools to be the best version of me, because as you may or may not know yet, you really can’t be anyone else... It’s a shitty game that you will never win.  Rock on and Mwah :)
— Tammy Bisco, Sales, New York City

Danielle! What hasn’t she helped me through? From breakups to business to breaking through fear to pursue my dreams, Danielle has been there every step of the way.

It isn’t just her impressive credentials, her fun and energetic approach to coaching or her ability to oh-so-kindly tell it like it is, that makes her the wonderful coach she is. Its that under it all, she truly cares about the people she works with and wants to empower us all to lead better lives. Having someone in my corner to push me, encourage me and inspire me has truly been a gift.

If you are struggling or stuck in any aspect of your life…Danielle’s your girl!

-Erica Mundy, Quebec, Natural Nutrition Student 

To me, Danielle has been an inspiration, a guide, a ray of light, a soul mate, a friend… Apart from her extraordinary inner beauty, honesty and love which shines through every sentence, punctuation mark, word, smile and laughter, she has the ability to see you – the real you, the unseen you, the forgotten you, the you full of wonder, of light and potential. She can pick up from a random set of information the essential points that can help you remember who you are, the key words that are your real truth and shine on them her light and wisdom so you can see them without doubt or fear or confusion.

Working with Danielle has been an extraordinary and transformative experience. Her genuine joy for life and her passion for service of others is intoxicating. Being in her presence, even thousands of miles away, recharges you, gives you hope and trust that you are not alone in your journey, but you are seen, supported and guided with love by someone who has your back. What more can one want from a coach?
— Daniela Popa, London England

On her website, Danielle says she will help you “get unstuck” and “unlock insights into yourself.” And she’s right! When I met her, I was bogged down with feelings of unworthiness and inadequacy. During our first meeting, Danielle told me those things were untrue and she kept telling me until I could see it myself. She knew when to listen patiently and when to give me a swift kick to help me see through my own BS. Danielle gave me the tools and encouragement I needed to change my thought patterns and learn to love myself. I’m grateful for Danielle’s expertise and for her friendship.
—Kerri Morin, Los Angeles, CA

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
— Jamie Rose, Momenta Creative

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!
— Chelsea Napuri, Mom + Cake Bite Goddess, Los Angeles, CA

The beauty of working with Danielle, for me, is that she offers support and guidance in whatever areas I need to focus on in the moment. She helps me to determine life priorities and refocuses me to step by step reaching of goals. She has been an important confidant, guide, and cheerleader in both my personal and professional lives!
