Create a Life You Love

You know something feels off in your life, but you’re just not sure what it is.

You’ve got a yearning, a deep longing to live a meaningful, purpose-driven life, but to be honest, you don’t really know what that could look like.

Maybe you are in a job that you’re good at. Very good, even. Successful. And yet, something’s missing. You don’t know what it is. Not exactly.

You feel like the real you is missing.

Or maybe you know, deep inside, you’re meant to do something else. Maybe something creative, artistic. Maybe you want to write, or speak full time, but you can’t begin to see how you could do that. Not with everything you have to do now.

Maybe, on the stillest nights, you can feel yourself called to do something in your life, something bigger than you’re doing now. By morning time, that feeling’s washed away in the early sunlight. You’re left only with the slightest twinge throughout the day that something’s not quite what it should be.

Perhaps you’ve already tried reading books, scan articles, or take self-improvement classes on finding your passion and purpose. You always start out enthused by the newness of it all, but before long, it drains away, and you’re back doing the same thing you’ve always done: Go to work, do well, have people like and depend upon you. Go home and do the same.

The thing is, we’re never taught how to look inside and find what’s right for us.

Many people just default to what everyone else, or their culture, says is a good life. And then after they spend years following the rules, achieving what they’re supposed to and living in a way that everyone deems as perfect, they’re left wondering why it doesn’t feel good.

Coming Home


When we're living our right lives, it feels like home. There's no other way I've found to describe it. We are doing what we feel called to do, using our gifts and talents, and contributing in a full and meaningful way. We get to be fully, wholly ourselves. And it feels warm, fulfilling, contented, comfortable. Like home.

And that’s what this program is designed to help you find.

Who is this program for?

This is the ideal combination of practical and coaching support for women looking to find their path toward listening to their soul’s calling and creating a life that feels like it was meant just for them.

This program is also for you if:

  • You are unhappy with your chosen work or career, and are confused about what to do about it

  • You ‘re not really sure what makes you unique or special, you haven’t claimed your gifts & genius and you lack confidence in general around your purpose

  • You sense there’s something more to life for you but you don’t know what it is, or you do, and you’re afraid to claim it

  • You have a creative dream you’re longing to explore but aren’t sure how to go about it

  • You have a yearning to share your voice with the world, but you keep deferring your dream to do so

  • You’ve been feeling alone and you're longing for a supportive connection as you explore your inner life

  • You’d love to start living like someone who follows her heart and soul, and you really need some help and guidance

This program is probably not for you if:

  • You aren’t interested in digging deep, looking at the messages in your life as well as your patterns

  • You just want someone to tell you what to do

  • You are looking for an accountability coach (what I call a Whistle and Clipboard coach) and for someone to keep you on track with your project no matter what comes up

I reached out to Diane at a time when my career was stable and predictable. I shared with her that a lot of changes were expected to happen within the next few years of my life, and that I wanted to explore some ideas to help me navigate those changes.

Diane helped me rediscover those times in my life that I enjoyed and also feelings from the past that I did not want to repeat. By narrowing down to the events that brought me the most joy, sense of purpose and confidence, we were able to identify what I value the most. Diane encouraged me to find a way to put those pieces together in such a way, that when the moment for change came along, I felt confident about my new direction.

Today I am a new entrepreneur, feeling my way through a new career and new opportunities that reflect my values and lifestyle. I’m not going to say change is easy, it’s not. Essentially, change is completely disturbing, it has to be. However, I get to celebrate every day that I get to be the best “me” I’ve ever been.

Find what you are being called to do

In this program, I help you come out of your logical, socialized mind and create a powerful vision for your ideal life. Acting as your intuitive guide, I then help you in a very practical way to map out your next steps, uncover obstacles that are standing in your way, and learn tools that can help guide you along your journey.

This program can help you:

  • Explore your unique genius, talents, gifts, and passions

  • Tap into your body as a source of deep wisdom and knowing

  • Learn to listen to your inner wisdom

  • Discover who you are and what you’ve been longing for

  • Learn to express your truth and move toward living it

  • Map out tangible, doable steps to start creating a life that feels like home

  • Find strategies that work for you to move through obstacles that hold you back from expressing your essential self and using your voice.

Diane helped me to find calm and clarity as I navigated my way through a major career change to follow my passion for design.

She provided balanced, reasoned and highly practical support that, almost a year after our sessions, I continue to use as a compass when it comes to my work and also my life decisions.
Since our sessions, I have a clearer vision of where I want to be and, more importantly, the steps I need to take to get there.

We all have dreams of what we should be doing and where we should be. Diane’s focused and pragmatic coaching has helped to bring mine into the realms of reality.

Your Guide


My search for home was both literal (I lived in 15 different places across three continents over the past several decades) and metaphorical.

For the longest time, I lived life dedicated to learning all the rules, hoping to finally fit in. I tried really, really hard to do everything right, and I couldn’t figure out why so many things felt wrong. Until one day I realized that feeling at home is something I needed to find within.

Now, I know that when I’m being most unique individual self - claiming my essence, fulfilling my purpose, using all of my gifts and talents and my voice - rather than fitting in, this is when I feel most at home.

And that’s what I want to help you with in this program - come home to yourself and claim the life you’re soul is longing for you to live.


As part of my own journey, I left my long-term corporate marketing job to become a coach. Several years ago, I completed an in-depth coach training program, and then went on to become a Martha Beck Certified Wayfinder Life Coach.

Since then, I’ve spent hundreds of hours coaching individuals, creatives, and other coaches, helping them remove obstacles and align their marketing, businesses, writing and lives to their soul-selves. 


Prior to becoming a coach, I spent 15 years as a Director in a company in the talent mobility industry, working with some of the world’s largest companies.  I spent the last several years of my corporate career as a Director, Global Marketing and Communications, where I created campaigns, events, and programs designed to increase customer engagement. I was also responsible for creating a harmonized content strategy, signature program content, and for overseeing copy development.

A Unique Combination

I bring all those strategic big picture and planning skills as well as my intuitive coaching skills to my work now, helping women connect to their essential selves, learn to listen to their own inner wisdom, and remove what’s stopping them from living the life they were meant to live. My approach is both intuitive and magical and always grounded in the practical, giving you concrete, tangible actions to help you move forward.
