I’m Dani – Coach, Life Strategist, Mother & Human.
I created Your Oxygen Mask as a coaching practice geared towards supporting individuals to get clear about what’s going on in their lives currently and to find their own clear visions for their desired future. I also work with partners in parenting, to create a balance and positive communication to best support their children while engaging in self care. Even more specifically, I support families with gender nonconforming, transgender and LGBTQ+ identified children.
Many have questions about how coaching is different from therapy. Coaching is different because therapists work with individuals and couples to analyze and gain insight and understanding into their past to help them deal with their current behaviors. Therapy is a valuable process to gain a better understanding of how we get to the places we are most stuck. Coaching is focused on the present, moving into a more fully developed and conscious future. As a life coach is a type of wellness professional who helps people make progress in their lives in order to attain greater fulfillment and balance. In my coaching practice, I help individuals and partners discover their core values, find their leader within and identify and clarify their goals. While working together this can reveal the barriers holding one back, and uncover strategies for overcoming each obstacle.
