Diane is simply the best at what she does. She has an incredible ability to empower people. It was amazing how quickly Diane was able to get who I was at a very deep level and impart just the right mix of practical tools, intelligent insight and personal accountability to help me create a better life for myself. I hold Diane in high regard both personally and professionally and give her my highest recommendation.

IF, Real Estate, Life & Business Coaching

I decided to work with Diane as I was feeling a little stuck and lacking inspiration as to how to make a forward move. It was a good decision. Diane has a no-nonsense approach which I liked and conveys patience and insight while very much focusing on creating momentum. I would highly recommend her if you want to challenge your current thoughts and habits and make changes for the better.

PH, Real Estate, Business Coaching

I did not want a coach.  I used to associate coaching with bullying.  But someone I admire gave me Diane’s information and I eventually called as I was stuck in inaction and headed for what I felt was disaster: tax deadlines.  I called looking for a quick fix and intended to have one session but after our initial talk together, I could see clearly that I would be in a different place in my life after working through a plan of action with her.  I did not hesitate to sign up for a block of sessions even though my funds were limited.  I could tell she was going to help me get somewhere different than where I currently was.  Which was what I KNEW I wanted.   And boy did she do that!

I am ever grateful for Diane’s ability to listen with grace, focus, and great attention, to my whole being.  She shines a light in the dusty corners I have  ignored.  She challenges me to sweep into those corners and break the old ways habits that used to limit and define me.  She is firm but nurturing as I work through breaking patterns and shifting perspectives that hold me back.  She is helping me carve a path forward far beyond my own expectations of my looming tax deadlines.  She is helping me overcome lifelong issues that recur and trip me up by giving me the tools and the guidance to be able to summon my inner coach. So I can reach my fullest potential.

She has the ability to identify, understand and explore areas in one’s life that need attention, self nurturing and action so we can be our best selves.  She illuminates, brilliantly, the hidden potential and pathways to abundance in us all.  This is sacred work Diane is doing here.  I am truly grateful to be working with her.

EP, Fashion Design, Business and Life Coaching

I’ve been working with Diane for about four months now. Amazingly, during these few months I’ve learned and utilized strategies that have greatly improved and enhanced my life. She has given me USABLE tools to help me deal with some extraordinary challenges that have been dealt to me.

I am a single parent of an adult daughter with mental challenges. She has had repeated psychiatric hospitalizations, sometimes as many as five in one year, and the situation has been barely manageable. She was diagnosed and has been a full time job since age three.
My older daughter has not had an easy time of it either. It’s very difficult being the ” normal ” sibling, She had been working with Diane ( my older daughter)and I noticed something was wonderfully different about her. I thought she was on miracle meds or perhaps was seeing a new therapist! It was then that I found out about her panacea, namely, Diane MacDonald. My newly smiling daughter informed me that Diane offered complimentary phone call and suggested that I give her a call. I felt curious but doubtful. Unless there was a possibility of my younger daughter having a full recovery there was no way I could ever feel good, right? That’s what I thought.

So………….
Have my hard days vanished? Has a magic wand erased all of my hardships? Clearly, I still have a chock full of situations that I must deal with. However, while many of the difficult variables remain, I have changed. I am managing things using a different system, thanks to Diane. Our coaching sessions are done via telephone. I could describe the most tortuous( to me) situation to Di and when she says,”Here’s the thing” or “Here’s the piece”, I know that some wisdom is on it’s way into my brain and my heart.

Here is another amazing “piece”. The changes that I’ve made in my behavior, have had a wonderful extra benefit. My younger daughter is learning about boundaries since my implementation of them, hence, making her behavior better! It feels like a miracle and it’s so real.
Thank you Diane. I wish you success in every journey YOU undertake and know that every magical sparkle you give out will come back right to you.

PL, Teacher, Life Coaching

Diane came into my life when things were looking dark. Her expertise, experience and pleasant disposition got me on the right track both personally and professionally. She helped me to see the path that I was meant to travel. Diane is equipped with tools that are applicable and effective.

KA, Director Not for Profit, Career Transition & Life Coaching

While I was working with Diane my life began to change for the positive. When I met Diane I was at a very low point in life. As we worked together, she managed to change my engraved negative beliefs to positive beliefs. With the help of Diane’s wisdom, piercing insight compassion and motivation, I became more confident and more optimistic; I believed I could want the best things that life had to offer and that I deserved them. My life changed as we worked together, I started to make more money at my start up and I became happier. I’m writing this testimony 3 months after we ended our sessions, her help increased in degree over time. Right now I am doing better than ever. My business is supporting me, I am loving what I do, I’m motivated and I’m happy. I realize I owe it to Diane, whose help was more than a momentary pick-me-up. She gave me the tools I needed to make a permanent change in my life.

JS, Acupuncture, Business Coaching

I feel extremely grateful that my daughter suggested I try a coaching session with Diane. I decided to give it a try and BAM ……After our initial conversation I felt a complete shift. Diane gave me suggestions that are usable and realistic. Like the other testimonials I read , I also noticed that she put more care into me than mere coaching. I cherish the hour phone sessions and I try to absorb as much as possible. As a parent of a special needs adult child I have many things to deal with. Sometimes it feels completely unmanageable. Diane’s approach gives concrete ideas that are put on pencil and paper. I refer back to my notes all the time. Daniella G thanks for introducing me to Diane. I love you. And Diane you are such a treasure and I am so lucky that I have been given the opportunity to learn so much. Thank you… thank you… thank you… thank you.

PL, Mother & Teacher, Life Coaching

I began working with Diane after I had been stalled and paralyzed in a vicious cycle of uncertainty and dissatisfaction in my business for months.  I was trying various techniques to create change none of which was getting me where I wanted to go.  When I met Diane at a workshop I sensed something different about her practical techniques and her insight as a coach.  Through our work together I was able to specifically identify several ways in which my actions and my thoughts were holding me back and in fact creating the situations I found myself in.  Then she was able to gently guide me in understanding how I would need to change if I truly wanted to reach my goals.  Our work together taught me specifically what I needed to do and say in order to meet my goals.  These lessons were invaluable and I refer to them weekly as I move forward with my business.  Thank you Diane for your invaluable wisdom and concrete suggestions.

MD, Artists, Graphic Designer, Business Coaching

Working with Diane is like coming out of a dream and moving into action mode. She helped me to unveil my dreams and aspirations and got me on the road to making them a reality. I never felt like I was in therapy, I was just guided along a path I was too busy and tired to see. I would and have recommended Diane to many colleagues who are at the same crossroads in their life as I am.

MJH, Furniture Design and Craftsperson, Business Coaching

Diane is a fantastic coach. I will go into a session with her feeling scattered and not knowing what I want or need to focus on, and by the end of the session, I will feel directed and full of clarity, as well as excited about life and ready to take action! Diane asks powerful questions that really challenge you to dig deep, and she’ll be straight up with you about what she’s hearing. She’s surprised me a few times by remembering things I’ve said during previous sessions, and then drawn connections. I’ve had amazing insights with Diane every session that result in me feeling like I’ve had a giant weight taken off my chest. I know I found Diane as a coach for a reason, and I look forward to more sessions with her, and the transformations that will continue!

MD, Interior Design, Life and Business Coaching

Diane’s straightforward manner didn’t let me run and hide under the blanket of my old habits. I started out in a small place of “not possible” and have emerged into”It’s all possible for me.” I was surprised to see more results in two months of her coaching than I did in years of therapy. She is magically effective by using heartfelt wisdom combined with practical action steps.
