1:1 Coaching

I help driven, time-strapped people give themselves permission to live a life of feel-good, inspired feelings, even when life continues to be busy and imperfect.

As improbable as it may sound, your life – your current, beautifully imperfect life! – can feel easier, more joyful, more abundant, and more peaceful. This is a state you can reach now, without tearing everything down and rebuilding. 

It is possible to treat your own needs, desires, and dreams with the same importance that you treat everyone else’s – and without guilt.


  • Learn to give yourself permission to put yourself first, so that you can soar toward your dreams and desires
  • Tune into how you’re feeling and make joy your standard way of being
  • Breathe easier, reducing stress and improving mood, focus and energy
  • Make decisions based on what is best for your higher purpose and take inspired action that attracts a steady flow of abundance
  • Step into unprecedented levels of self-trust, self-respect and self-care, experiencing the most transformational time of your life – change careers, find your life partner, buy a house, start that passion project you’ve been dreaming about 
  • Access your higher purpose knowing with gratitude you are where you’re meant to be
  • Discover peace and tranquility beyond your wildest dreams

Danielle is incredibly intuitive, spiritual, a wonderful listener and has truly found her calling as a life coach. Danielle assesses and offers a view of your situation quickly. She helped me get out of my misery, move on from my narcissistic husband and become a strong and independent woman once again.

She was available through my most difficult times often at a moment’s notice. She sees the best in you and helps you to build a plan for how to put those strengths and passions to work in your personal life and career. Equal parts coach, cheerleader, business advisor and a really good friend.

Danielle helps you to bring your vision to life. I’m very grateful to have worked with her during a challenging period and highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking to transform their life into something magical.

In March 2020, after leaving a career that made me ill and felt completely out of touch with myself, I decided to go on a once-in-a-lifetime journey to Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Egypt, Spain, Italy, Sweden, and Norway. Not only all the trips were canceled, my home, San Francisco, was in lockdown with the rest of the world. Being home bounded days after days, I found myself falling into despair and feeling more lost than ever.

One day I came across Danielle’s blog, and little did I know I was going on a grand adventure after all – a soul journey and a deeply reflective experience. Danielle supported me with her kind heart, provided guidance with wisdom, and gave me practical tools to work with so I feel a little bit better, then a little better, then great, and now fantastical. I am so appreciative to have received Danielle’s mentorship!

The mindset, success and manifestation techniques she taught led me to:
greater self-awareness
and direction in life

Today, nearly a year later, I feel consistently happy, live in abundance, and continue to create a life filled with only fun and well-being.

My Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D) informs my work as a life and spiritual coach and vice versa. Psychology helps you resolve your past by working through the “why” of your current struggles. Life coaching and spiritual alignment helps you sail toward the life you truly desire to be living — a life of boundless joy and satisfaction.  

I specialize in self-awareness, understanding and empowerment. I’ve found that once my clients master these skills, they see a ripple effect in their romantic relationships, confidence, mindset, and even their spiritual practices. 


My Philosophy: Psychology + Coaching = Lasting Change


brain iconWe all want to have lives that are full to the brim with meaning, purpose and joy! But so many of us have past wounds that prevent us from living the bountiful life we really want. It’s always easier to ignore pain and hope it will go away, but without tackling old hurts head on, we can remain chained to the past and unable to move forward.

This is where the healing magic of talk therapy comes in. Psychology helps us work through the ‘why’ of our current struggles to find the root of toxic behavior. Together, we bring everything out into the open, shed some warm, loving light on the heart of the matter, and end any hold those wounds have on you.

Once you’ve made peace with those experiences and emotions, you’ll have the power to envision and create a life that once seemed impossible! It’s this clarity and confidence that pave the way for a successful coaching partnership


Desk and chairAs a coach I help you find inspiration, hold you accountable, and help you unleash your potential in an entirely new way. Coaching helps you organize your thinking in a manner that moves you forward powerfully and strategically without wasting time or energy. It helps you look at the world with a new perspective and take action to create the results you seek.


I will help you unlock insights that move you closer to what you truly, deeply want – and once we pinpoint those desires, we’ll make them a reality by creating a plan to get you there! That plan will help us prioritize next steps so you’re more effective, efficient, and happier along the way.

I will be your biggest cheerleader, helping you see all the possibilities that exist even when things that once seemed out of reach. Change is unavoidable, but as your coach, I’ll help you deal with change more effectively so that any struggles or transformations you do experience will be strategic and manageable.

Before I started working with Danielle, I was totally unaware of who I was being in relationship to myself and those around me. I thought I was picking up the phone to carve a path for my career and instead what I received was an abundance of knowledge, love and respect for myself and a new found appreciation for self development.

I remember our first call I said, “Well, I am not a broken woman, I don’t NEED help!” Boy was I wrong. Without even knowing it, I was on a path of a total spiritual and mental make over.

She was so patient, so compassionate and also so willing to go where I wanted to go and also give me space to fail and pick myself back up again. If you are wondering if it is worth the investment, I would say, 100% YOU are worth anything that can be so life changing. I am still and always will be growing, but after working with Danielle this last year, I can safely say I have become a stronger, happier and more successful human in this world.

After a twenty-seven year marriage, I have been single for the past eleven years. I didn’t understand why I had been single for so long and wanted to marry one more time.

Danielle was a joy to work with. She helped me see what blocks from my past I needed to work through, and how I could manifest a legendary love in my life once again. Along the way, we worked on other issues which were also affecting my self esteem and my ability to love deeply. I became clear with all that I want and need.  Danielle was compassionate and resourceful with all of my challenges. She was easy to talk with and a true pleasure to work with.

As a result of our work together:
I am in the process of getting back together with a man I had dated in recent years.
I clearly see my own worthiness along with the best of him.  We are talking about getting married!
I didn’t realize that fresh, profund love would manifest so quickly and so easily.

I was feeling stuck in my romantic life and had been struggling to find ways to get unstuck. As a smart, successful woman with a full life and rewarding career, I was more than a little frustrated and angry to have arrived in my 30s having accomplished so many of my personal and professional goals, but seemingly unable to find a relationship that felt right on a deep and soulful level. 

Working with Danielle and continuing with additional coaching afterwards has been the single best thing I have done for myself in recent memory. I have found a way to make a home for myself in my own heart. Danielle’s coaching sessions have not only totally rebuilt my approach to dating, but they have carried over into my friendships, my relationships with my family, and the way I show up in the world on both a personal and professional level.

Instead of approaching myself and my relationships as ‘problems to be solved’, I am now able to show up secure in myself and my inherent worth, able to give the best of myself to relationships worth that investment while drawing healthy boundaries  that support and protect my best interests (boundaries that are neither 30-foot-concrete walls nor totally porous floodplains, but feel like flexible, warm hugs).

Danielle’s particular brand of magic has created a radical shift in my life – the tools, techniques, and insights she has shared with me have shed an important light on patterns and behaviors that were no longer serving me, and created space for me feel like my best possible self: aware, awake, and aligned with my values and dreams… and fully empowered to go after the life and the loving relationship that I want and deserve.

If you’re considering working with Danielle, just do it. Send the note, make the ask, give yourself the gift of Danielle’s magic – it will change everything.”
