SINGLE - getting back out there after divorce or frustrated with dating, wanting to figure out what you're doing wrong and how to find "the one".
IN A RELATIONSHIP - wanting to fix it, unsure if it's the right one because it either isn't working or isn't moving forward, or involves betrayal/ more than two people.
HEARTBROKEN - struggling with the loss of a relationship, wanting your ex back, feeling hopeless that there will never be anyone better, stuck and can't let go to move on.

THREE WAYS I MOSTLY HELP
In a Relationship
"I really want to thank you for all your help and support, and answering my emails and meeting me at random times etc. I realize I was able to achieve more with you in only 13 hours than I was able to achieve with all the other coaches I had worked with in 40+ combined hours of coaching.
You have helped me so much in general, but also with this girl you have helped me explicitly, and here's why. After my first date with her I said all she wanted was friends, I was almost ready to just not talk with her again. You told me to go out with her again and try to kiss her. Had I not done that I wouldn't have slept with her.
I really want you to know how much I appreciate your help. I'm so glad I started working with you, and I look forward to continuing to work with you until I achieve everything I want to."
"I am a divorced mother of two teenagers with my own business and I have been working with Donna for less than one year. We have accomplished more together than I have in ten years of therapy, or alternative life coaching.
I had a very specific goal in mind - to find and maintain a healthy long term relationship with an attractive, honorable man, and I am more than grateful to say that I have been able to achieve that goal with Donna's guidance. She has a gift for coaching that is not easy to find, so I highly recommend her!"

"Today, I am dating healthy; Donna shows me all options, explains the best decisions and why they work, and continues to prove she is always right, no matter how difficult the choice may be. I am incredibly grateful for her, my life would not be flourishing if it weren't for her guidance."
"I am a 47 year old woman, going through two of the most difficult relationship situations of my life.
I reached out to Donna and after just a first phone call felt deeply understood, which meant everything at that moment. She clearly possesses both experience, and the gift of insight, which enables her to support her clients through painful breakups and messy relationships, and helps to shift their trajectory toward a clearer and more fulfilling path."

I came to Donna with no particular issue, but rather, just needed some more positive and focused thinking during a career change and a new relationship. She has showed me paths that I never thought existed, and she kept a positive outlook throughout, and this was contagious.
I had planned on working with Donna for a short period of time, but have now found her so invaluable that I just keep looking to her to help me see and think more positively, more focused.
Her wealth of knowledge is insurmountable, and I know with any situation I bring to her attention that is happing in my life, she has always helped me approach them with utmost confidence and clarity. From relationships, to career changes, to friendship conundrums, Donna can always help with her knowledge which comes from experience that is hard to find. She comes highly recommended.

"It was a pleasure meeting you Friday afternoon. I wanted to thank you for listening to my story and offering your wise words of wisdom. Your perspective on my situation has allowed me to realize that I should be focused on simply having fun with my boyfriend and making the most of our time. I have already started applying your advice this weekend and he has been responding very positively and lovingly.
I was very confused before our conversation but now my situation is much more clear thanks to you! I can't wait to put all your advice into practice.
I will reach out to you again should I need your advice in the future."
- Leslie, 27, in 8 month exclusive relationship
"During 2013, I met and fell deeply in love with the man of my dreams. Not only was he extremely handsome, but he was also caring, compassionate, and an amazing friend. I couldn't have been happier. However, after four months, the relationship suddenly drifted and I sensed an unforeseen break-up headed my way.
Wanting to save the relationship, and thinking it's eventual demise was entirely my fault, I engaged Donna for guidance and support. Donna was absolutely amazing- she took the time to coach me about the status of the relationship, why certain events were happening, my emotions, and how to regain my strength when the relationship finally ended.
I found Donna's insight, feedback, and advice to be spot-on. I have since healed and I am now ready to date again, something I never thought possible several months earlier. Donna's coaching was very valuable to me and I now consider her a close and great friend."

"I came to Donna for help with a relationship that was no longer working after 3 years. At that point I had met with a psychiatrist and counselor but just couldn't break through such a dark time. Donna had not only the expertise, but also the experience and insight to guide me through this incredibly difficult time.
With each breakthrough Donna guided me through, she assured me that even though I felt like there was no light at the end of the tunnel, she would be there to support the decisions I so needed her guidance with. Each and every stage of that breakup, and just as important, my eventual journey back to finding my way without whom I thought would be my life partner, Donna saw to it that I made the right decisions, and those outcomes would have not been positive for my path if it were not for her.
Although my experience with a psychiatrist and other counselor were helpful, neither of them were able to show me which options truly existed, and how to make the right decisions. Donna always had the right advice, and as we all know, during a breakup we sometimes can't seem to keep it together. Donna made sure I didn't fall apart, she was available when I needed her which is priceless during a breakup (unlike the other counselors), and kept me moving in a positive, healthy, and happy direction."
No one should feel alone or lost as I initially did during my breakup, but instead should feel stronger and empowered. Donna was the one who enabled me to feel that I could make it through, and I did, with all of her spot on insight and advice. Going through a breakup is not just about getting past losing someone, it's about finding yourself again, and Donna seamlessly glided me through this."
