Let me start off by saying that working with Dara has been an empowering experience. She has given me the strength to push through and overcome a difficult time in my life. She is a genuine, nonjudgmental, and caring person. She supplies you with the tools, skills and feedback needed to stay on a positive path. I highly recommend Dara. She will be instrumental in your life for making positive changes.
Dara and I had the opportunity to connect through the International Coach Federation’s Long Island Chapter. Our sessions began at a pivotal time in my life as I was going through numerous changes (new job, elder care, kids off to college, etc.). It was comforting to know that I had Dara to connect with on a weekly or biweekly basis depending on the week. I appreciated the time she gave me to reflect so that I could take the appropriate steps to move forward. I always felt heard and she held me accountable for the things I said I would do in a compassionate and non-threatening way. Dara is a true partner and someone who is invested in her clients. If you are looking for someone to help facilitate and support self-awareness and change in your life, I would definitely reach out to Dara!
From the first email exchange with Dara, I knew she was the perfect match for me. Her warm care, her thorough questions to get to know me, and her attentiveness to me as a person even BEFORE we committed to coaching, was evident that she had my best interest at heart. The coaching she has done with me so far has supported my first impressions of her. Her skills as a coach, along with her authenticity, transparency, and strength has created a safe place for me to transform! I know the changes I’m making in my life is a direct reflection of the genuine connection I have with her. As a sexual trauma survivor, safety is vital and key to any relationship in my life, and I trust Dara with this part of my healing journey. That speaks volumes!
