"Before I met Davina, I was thoroughly impressed with her credentials and breadth of diversified experience and looked forward to having her help me with my career transition. Once I started working with her, I’d consider an understatement to say that she completely exceeded all my expectations with these coaching sessions. I found her easy to talk to from the start, allowing me to freely share my thoughts and dilemmas. She has a unique ability to break down complex problems into simple steps in order for me to start tackling them; she also frequently offered such perspectives that completely bewildered me and turned out to be exactly what I needed to hear to move ahead. She continuously offered auxiliary resources through our discussions, and each one has turned out to be the exact prescription for my problem. Most importantly, I appreciate her ability to tell me as it is, while she’s artfully pierced through my insecurities to continually build my confidence. It’s been an absolute privilege having Davina’s insights and guidance along this journey of self-discovery."

"I started working with Davina for Coaching under quite a bit of personal resistance. I knew what she was offering was compelling and something I wanted to embark on with her (Direction with my life! Accountability! Self acceptance! Growth!). I was just not sure how to start the overwhelming process. Having been through various types of talking therapy over my life, I felt like starting another form of it would create that same endless process where I never quite got the satisfaction of closure or direction I was searching for.
After our first few sessions, I saw measured growth and improvement on my career endeavors and felt more accountable to the goals I set for myself. This was a big motivator for me as I was struggling to find focus and visualize success. However, where I experienced the most profound changes were in areas of my emotional growth and personal relationships. By utilizing a series of objective queries and observations, together we were able to accomplish major breakthroughs in areas where I’d been stuck in a cycle of repeating the same patterns again and again. By helping me to see these experiences as they were, I gained so much confidence and acceptance of myself. I was able to work through painful experiences like a divorce and a breakup without losing focus of myself or my personal goals, but rather, thrive in business, truly come to know what I was looking for in my life with personal relationships, friendships, love, and able to articulate where I want my life to be directed and to talk about my dreams, with the feeling like I am able to accomplish them!
To say this has changed my life would not be doing it service, so I will say that this has helped me to live again. And to embrace life fully."
