"Dianne was able to assist me in taking a closer look at some areas in my life that were still problematic. Together, we created a systematic plan and some tools that I could use that helped me to gain a more positive approach and delightfully a most positive and peaceful outcome. I would highly recommend working with Dianne who is professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and is able to connect with you to determine how you can best meet your current needs to bring your health back into balance.” Joni
I PROVIDE LIFE, HEALTH AND WELLNESS COACHING FOR WOMEN
Thanks to many beautiful mentors in my life, I have navigated the journey through careers, motherhood, work-life balance, health and many forms of relationships. Some of the journeys were smooth sailing, others were through turbulent, treacherous waters. I am filled with gratitude for the support of these women. My experience being witnessed, challenged and supported by women inspires me to share the skills and wisdom I have gained to support women in their own unfolding.
I have 33 years of professional experience as a Board Certified Health Educator, Certified Physical Education Teacher, Coach and Event Manager. I chose to augment my professional training by acquiring certification as an Integrative Health Coach through the Integrative Health Coach Training Program in the Integrative Medicine Department at Duke University Health System. The reputation of the Duke Medical Center as one of the best in the world, and the rigorous program requirements led me to choose this training. The coaching framework is researched based. Students are required to complete extensive coursework, undergo supervision, pass written and oral exams and complete numerous coaching hours. The Duke IM Health Coach Training Program sits at the top in the industry. I believe so strongly in the integrity of this program that I have since returned as a volunteer to mentor new students.
Much of my most valuable education came from navigating life after divorce with my two children and competitive training as an athlete. I know what it is like to over work, over train, and give beyond my personal resources. These behaviors led me to chronic injury, illness, weight gain and severed relationships. To restore my health, I hired my own coaches, rolled up my sleeves, and did the work necessary to re-gain balance and learn compassionate, committed, self-care. I have alot of wisdom and skillful guidance to offer you as a coach. It would be a pleasure to walk with you on your journey to meet your goals.
