Danielle's work as a Coach and Facilitator stems from over 20 years of commitment to cultivating healthy teams, work environments and work forces that are capable of overcoming anything. She believes that through the development of trust, relationships, direct communication and shared goals, leaders and teams can thrive. She approaches coaching with the end-goal of assisting her clients in overcoming barriers and helping them to navigate their life and careers from previously unseen perspectives. By opening new viewpoints and opportunities, they deepen their process of identifying their values and purpose and are able to make more resolute and focused decisions based on what matters most to them. They gain the self-awareness to identify their “internal critic” who often paralyzes them or causes them to miss out on opportunities. This new awareness and self-management allows them to continually operate and interact from a place of empathy and curiosity- yielding great rewards to their personal and professional journeys.
It has been said that she is “infectiously positive and someone people love to be around”. In her work, she exudes her values of connecting with and helping others, believing in people’s ability to change and grow, and inspiring action through fun and playfulness. She is someone you can count on and trust, knowing that she will tell you the whole truth in service of your goals.
