Praise


Kind words about my work:

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

+++++

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

+++++

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

+++++

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! -Sarah McGovern, Atlantic Highlands, NJ

+++++

WOW – isn’t it incredible how hard one can fall from the punches that life delivers? What a gift to have found Danielle.Danielle has been such the 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

+++++

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

+++++

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. - Jessica Yaw, Owner, Meadowlark Botanical Organic Bath and Body Products

+++++

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

+++++

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 +++++

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 +++++

Your contemporary and cool spin on coaching makes the experience like chatting to a really wise girlfriend. For me, all that was missing was the glass of wine! -Annik M. Sorhaindo, MSc, Senior Program Researcher

+++++ When I purchased the 10 pack with Danielle, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I had been to career counsellors in the past, visited psychologists and done countless online questionnaires and tests to figure out what my true calling was. I was 40 years old, directionless and desperate. I had given up all hope and Danielle was my last ditch effort (no pressure at all for poor Danielle!!).

After my very first session I knew I have finally found the person who was going to help me. Within 30 minutes I had more ‘a-ha’ moments then I’d had with all the other previous efforts combined.  For me, it was the fact that Danielle bought this perfect mix of psychology, empathy and a truly wonderful nurturing soul to every one of our sessions. I believe it is this unique blend of gifts that sets Danielle far apart from all other life coaches. She truly stands in a league of her own. -Belinda Radalj, Perth, Western Australia

+++++

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! -Cathleen McGrath, photographer

+++++

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. -Arielle Adelman, Wellness Coach, Relish Life L.A.

+++++ 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  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. -Anna Johnson, V.P. Design & Merchandising, Orient Express Furniture

+++++

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. -Marie Denee, MBA, Plus Size Fashion and Style Blogger, Fashion and Style Editor of Plus Model Magazine 

+++++

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

+++++

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 +++++ 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. -Pollyanna Suárez Idarraga

+++++

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. -Heather Cereghino, Director of Marketing, The Ace Agency

+++++

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. -Serena Smitham, San Antonio, TX

+++++

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! -Deborah Harlow,  La Quinta, CA

+++++

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! -Janeane P: Interior Designer, Costa Mesa, CA

+++++

You are an inspirational little firework! -Fiona Campbell Connelly:  Event Planning, LA, CA

+++++

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. -Jill Mitch: Event Planning, LA, CA

+++++

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. -Michelle Camilo: Teacher, NYC, NY

+++++

When life gets truly wild we need to get all warrior on it.  I LOVE this (and you who I just discovered!) -Katie Paul: Filmmaker, Photographer + Writer,  Sydney, Australia

+++++

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. -Melissa Pombar Teigue: Catering, Los Angeles, CA

+++++

Love your blog, tweets, emails, everything!  Good stuff!  Love your writing style! -Robin Donnelly: Nurse + Entrepreneur, Amherst, OH

+++++

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

+++++

I have been working with Danielle for years. Her life experiences, along with her studies, make her a wonderful person to talk to about anything and everything. Her natural understanding of people has always made her wise beyond her years. Danielle is an excellent listener, confidant, ally, spirit booster, and advocate. I feel certain that anyone who places her trust in Danielle will walk away feeling more fulfilled and excited about life. -Beth Fox.: V.P.
