"Denise has a teaching style that is part facilitator, part story teller, and part artist. Her gift is to allow the space for opening up with encouragement and compassion. Her stories artfully weave the lessons and learning together. The lessons readily adapt to real life. My journey toward wholeness and joy is laid out before me. It is now my choice. Denise has shown me that I have all I need."
- Gay DiGiovanni
What you bring to these self-empowerment programs is beyond belief! My quality of life grows/improves every time I am around you!

I have taken a number of personal development courses which were coached by Denise over more than a decade. I rarely pass up an opportunity for personal or group coaching from Denise because she is insightful and she gently focuses me on the areas of growth which are open to me. With Denise's encouragement I have made significant changes in my life incorporating a healthier lifestyle and a life which incorporates others more inclusively. Denise is dynamic, organized, and very funny. I will always be on the look out for opportunities to hang out with Denise and to accept her guidance.

I speak and act with greater assurance, even knowing that sometimes I may do or say something that is less than perfect.
My coaching experiences with Denise have helped me achieve a joyous sense of wholeness and trust in myself. The jewel of becoming whole is that I feel like celebrating my kaleidoscope nature and appreciate my weaker aspects along with my stronger ones, my serious side as well as my whimsy, my shortcomings as well as my talents. I experience more sides of myself - both the dark and the light-and welcome them all with greater understanding for their many gifts.
I have a greater appreciation of how my choices lead me toward or away from my long-term goals or visions. I have anchored some of my choices in daily practices, freeing me to live more in the now.
I look forward to participating in other coaching experiences with Denise.
