Our bodies are a sacred vessel that speaks to us through the language of sensation. By listening to the heart and feeling the body, we heal and discover the soul. My journey began 23 years ago when I discovered that yoga was my perfect medicine for chronic depression. The practice of yoga, meditation and soul-writing inspired the discovery that my body literally stored my life experiences, both light and dark, but especially the dark. With diligent practice, and a deep commitment to soul-work with a silliness to listen closely and feel intensely helped me release and heal.
Becoming finely attuned to the practices of healing that work for me, and after receiving the necessary certifications, I began offering what I call ‘soul coaching’ to others using the modalities of Somatic Massage Therapy, Yoga, and Life Coaching. I currently offer women’s empowerment groups and workshops worldwide, that utilize the traditional process of council and now The Desire Map, which has been hugely helpful in my feeling journey. I also working with clients individually to help them find ritual and balance in their personal lives.

Q & A
Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?
Devoted Graceful Vivacious Abundant
Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?
I did the Desire Map over the course of a week, alone, listening to the audio CD. I loved how deep Danielle had me thinking as opposed to reading through the questions alone. I felt like I had her supporting me along the way
Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.
I had signed up for grad school- a dream I had been pursuing for years. I had finally made it- I had done the hard work, I got in to the school of my dreams. But as I sat in that room with the members of my new cohort, who I was supposed to spend the next 2 years with, I felt angry, empty, disconnected, insecure and judgmental. I went home and Desire Mapped...I heard Danielle's voice does this goal make you feel alive...does this goal make you feel... NO! NO! NO! ...every answer was no! I fought it. I fought hard to get to where I was and I wanted to fight hard to deny the truth - but the truth was too BIG! What I needed was to come home to me - to devotion to my joy and allow gracefulness, vivaciousness and abundance to flow. The most life affirming decision I have ever made.
Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?
This work is powerful and meaningful and really really easy when you commit to owning how you want to feel and setting out to feel that way in EVERYTHING you want to do. I want to introduce people to this work and then continue to support them in staying with it- because it has changed my lens through which I see the world.
