What's being said about my coaching and consulting work...

"Dana is a brilliant coach in all respects.  She impresses and inspires me!"

Brooke Castillo, The Life Coach School

Honestly I can't say enough good things about my Get Clear session with Dana--if you're feeling hesitant about taking the plunge, fear no more! Welcome to a tool that can help you navigate through the clutter of your mind and recenter yourself. I can without a doubt say it works and that the takeaway is invaluable. Dana is beyond lovely to work with and absolutely makes you feel at ease within just seconds. I was feeling stuck in regards to career motivations, and was overcome by the fear of jumping into the unknown. She was able to help me unravel the general cluttering in my mind and with one session we made leaps and bounds into figuring out my top priorities in life--what a relief! Not only did I become clearer on what pieces of my life are most important to me, and how much they are present or lacking, but I also came away with a succinct mission statement for what I'd like to do with my career. It felt like we had accomplished so much in just a small amount of time, and I can't wait to carry the knowledge I gained in this session into my daily life. I can't recommend the Get Clear session with Dana more--for those looking for some clarity in any aspect of your life this program is for you.

Working with Dana was exactly what I needed to help me as I navigated some challenging times, both personally and professionally.  Dana's objective and helpful perspective helped me to see more clearly the "next right step" to take.  She's supportive and understanding, but will also challenge your self talk and the stories you're telling yourself.  It was extremely helpful to have Dana on my support team and I'm grateful for her insight and encouragement.  As a result of working with Dana, I am moving forward on my path of self-employment where I am free to explore the different pathways available to me in this thing called life!

"It's tough to succinctly express just how valuable having Dana as my life coach over the past year has been. Her incomparable skill at creating a safe, supportive, and enjoyable space within which to divulge and process the innermost details of my life continues to amaze me to this day. I sought Dana's life coaching with the intention of processing more of my personal life together, but I soon found Dana helping me make holistic transformational shifts in all elements of my life, often professional in nature as well. I don't know that I've ever benefitted from a 1-on-1 relationship with a teacher, coach, or mentor in this way, and I am forever indebted to Dana and her brilliant, sensitive, wonderful coaching style for permanently improving the way I think, behave, and live for the better."

I came to Dana in a period of life transitions, growing pains, and struggling to achieve a work-life balance. She has a unique ability to quickly get inside your head and heart and help you make sense of the grey matter. Dana is a breath of fresh air, radiating warmth, wisdom, and authentic positivity. I have noticed a profound improvement in all aspects of my life since working with Dana, most notably, in my mind management. It was a lightbulb moment when she guided me to the realization that we have complete control of our thoughts and how liberating that can be.  I can hear her voice saying “life is a practice” and there’s no one else I’d want coaching me than Dana.

‚Äč"Working with Dana is an amazing experience.  I have learned things about myself that I never knew and that have been life-changing for me.  As a coach, Dana gently draws out a person's own wisdom to help maximize personal or work potential. Through Dana's patience, empathy, outstanding listening skills and open ended questions, she was able to help guide me in setting priorities and goals.  I am truly thankful for this experience."

"I found Dana Baruch to be highly skilled and very easy to work with and relate to, as a coach.  She understood all that I was throwing at her, even some complex dynamics that I was working through.  She was flexible and adjusted her approach to meet my needs.  I really valued her work!"

LS, Austin, TX

“Dana is a truly amazing person and coach.  She helped us understand our three year old daughter better right when we needed it the most.  Her advice allowed our family to communicate more effectively, which reduced frustration and brought us closer together.”

J & J Thompson, Austin, TX

"Dana is both insightful and compassionate.  I can always trust that she will hold a mirror up for me and that the image in that mirror will be an accurate representation of the situation - most likely containing elements I was not aware of.  She does this with such kindness that you can't help but be open to what she is offering."  

K. Humphrey, Waco, TX

"Through working with Dana, I have been better able to evaluate situations with new perspective and move forward.  Dana's careful listening skills and non judgemental manner are just a couple of her greatest assets.  I would highly recommend her!"

CLM, Chicago, IL

"Dana’s professional experiences of training teachers, supervising a faculty, founding and heading a school, supporting school administrators all around the country, as well as her positive outlook on life, led me to seek out her coaching expertise. I faced some burdensome professional challenges, that were overwhelming me. Dana was a great listener who helped me focus on my most pressing needs: supervision, delegation, and personal time management. She asked deep questions that sometimes challenged the way I thought things “had to be” done. Through our work together I learned about the role of a manager, supervisor, delegation, and ultimately better personal time management. I am much happier and more capable in my position, thanks to my work with Dana."

Kelly F.  Educational Leader, Austin, TX

"Thank you, Dana, for such a great Board Retreat.  I know I left inspired about the possibilities of what we can do together, as well as a better understanding of my role as a Board member.  Thank you for guiding us through a rigorous, efficient, fun and meaningful experience." 

Simone Talma Flowers, Board Member-Urban Roots of Austin, TX

"When I started working with Dana I was feeling stuck personally and professionally with no idea how to get unstuck. Her warmth, humor, and ability to identify the underlying issues helped to make my situation seem less overwhelming . Dana gave me the tools to begin to think differently which was very empowering and was the catalyst to making positive changes in my life. Her follow up after each session was also very helpful in keeping momentum going between meetings. I would highly recommend working with Dana to help bring about meaningful change in your life."
