It's Time to "Make Shift Happen".

Somewhere in your life, you feel stuck. You’ve tried everything but nothing has seemed to work (or at least long-term).

When this happens, we tend to default to our set habits and fixed beliefs, even when we know those habits make us feel lousy.


Furthermore, most coaches are certified in fitness, nutrition, and wellness and know a ton of information about those areas, but they lack the understanding, knowledge, and intuition to help a person actually make behavior changes that last a lifetime!

There is a Solution.

That’s where I come in – and I’m ready to provide something different that truly gets to the root of the problem and that really works!


Being a Certified Transformational Coach in Behavior Change from the Health Coach Institute, I will provide a PROVEN METHOD customized SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU that is easy & fun to follow, that will help you to begin making the behavior changes that you want to make in the area of life you are struggling with – whether it’s your nutrition, fitness, spiritual wellness, or life in general – they’re all connected and we will hit each area at some point along your journey so that you learn how to keep them all in balance, not just temporarily – but for life!

Donny-ASU-Baseball

We were 15 games into the baseball season

of my senior year at Arizona State University and the direction of my life was about to change in a dramatic way. Throughout my entire baseball career, I had multiple operations on my left knee and always found a way to come back and play through the pain. However, this fifth surgery I was about to have, which was a cadaver transplant of my meniscus, would forever end my dream of being a professional ball player.

 

I share this story with you because it is the inspiration behind “The Shift,” and why I’m on a mission to help others find their purpose. You see, I thought my purpose and identity on this earth was to be a baseball player. But when one day that was taken away from me, I had no other plan or purpose. I was stuck in the emotional and physical pain of losing the only thing I ever really knew. This led me a down a path of addiction and “purposeless” living for many years.

Today, I’m over 5 years sober

and have found a freedom I never knew was possible. Through a ton of self-development, therapy, yoga, meditation and committing to a life of service, I’ve been able to completely “shift” my life. My past has become my best asset, and my wound has become my purpose! From a willingness to do the work, I uncovered what was stopping me from living the highest version of myself and got crystal clear on a step by step plan to create a total transformation and the ultimate “shift” in my life.

This is where my passion and inspiration comes from. This type of work saved my life, which is why I’m so excited to share it with all of you!

Implementing “Mindfulness” into every aspect of my program is what I believe makes “The Shift” stand out amongst all the other programs out there. How we do anything is how we do everything! And so we are constantly looking out how our internal world is reflected by the world around us. This means that we must first become who we want to be and the results will follow. I also believe that other people are key to our success and happiness in life. This means that if we learn to give others what they want, through strong relationships, they will give us what we want. In fact, they will go out of their way to make us successful and happy. You get what you give! This is the law of the universe!

 

My coaching program is holistic and long-term focused. I’ll work with you to create a more “mindful life,” build your emotional intelligence and then teach you how to sustain and even enhance the positive changes in yourself and your environment. In a sense, you become your own coach. This combination ensures your change and growth long after the coaching is over. Because the truth is that everything you’ll ever need is already inside of you. I’m here to help you discover that!

There are many reasons that an individual or team might choose to work with a coach, including but not limited to the following:

  • There is something at stake (a challenge, stretch goal or opportunity), and it is urgent, compelling or exciting or all of the above;
  • You are stuck or wanting change in your life;
  • Dealing with major changes at work and or personal;
  • There is a gap in knowledge, skills, confidence, or resources;
  • There is a desire to accelerate results;
  • There is a lack of vision/clarity, and there are choices to be made;
  • The individual is extremely successful, and success has started to become problematic;
  • Work and life are out of balance, and this is creating unwanted consequences; or
  • One has not identified his or her core strengths and how best to leverage them.

A Personal Development Life Coach can guide you from where you are now in your life to where you want to be. Coaching is a new wave of self improvement and partnering with a coach can help you see things differently, achieve things you never thought possible and make long lasting changes in your life.

A Personal Development Coach can take you from where you are in your life to where you want to be, whether it be in relationships, achieving goals both physical and mental, getting ‘unstuck’ or gaining insight with a very proactive approach.

We all have a belief system in place that may or may not be serving us. We have learned things growing up, in school and affirm things in our minds constantly without even realizing it. I break down those beliefs and what is going on in your mind to show you what is causing the blockages and show you exactly how to turn them around!

You want a life coach to get rid of any blocks that may be holding you back from living your best life, having your best relationships, and being as successful as you can be. If you are feeling stuck or in an uncomfortable situation, or just not where you want to be, your personal development coach will help you see the light and give you guided action steps. A personal development coach is also someone you can confide in, a positive outlet for your stresses and burdens, an unbiased opinion and someone to hold you accountable to reaching your goals.

I am personally committed to guiding you in achieving your own personal success.

You talk about anything and everything with your coach. What is bothering you? What is uncomfortable? What has you stuck? What would you change about your life if you could? What do you want to achieve? How are others affecting what you do? What do you REALLY want to do and what do you REALLY want out of your life? I promise you there will NEVER be any judgement from me on what you’re going through!

When you give me this information, I am able to see behind the words and what is really being said. I can make you aware of things you may not be able to see yourself and give you guided steps to changing those things. Getting honest with yourself and with me is key! We will build that trust. That is my promise!

ALL sessions are completely private and confidential!

Traditional therapy will usually have you exploring your past (childhood and upbringing) and unresolved issues from your past that may be contributing to your current situation. This can take a lot of time. Psychologists and Psychiatrists also deal with medical issues and may or may not prescribe medicine.

A coach will take you from your current situation to where you would like to be by exploring the beliefs systems you have in place that may be holding you back. Personal Development Coaching is for highly functioning everyday individuals and issues. You will have someone to confide in with a fresh perspective and unbiased opinion with a clear plan to get you where you want to be while holding you accountable for your action steps.

Education is typically about giving information or introducing knowledge and skills about specific topics. Some parts of my program consist of teaching – passing on the knowledge of human behavior, success and happiness. Many clients are very good at memorizing that knowledge and some of them already have that knowledge, yet they find it hard to use this knowledge to make a change.

Have you ever said, “I know what I need to do, but don’t know how?” How many times have you read an awesome book and said, “I will make a change NOW”, and after three days, you have lost that motivation? You are not alone. Many people experience the same thing.

Everyone can benefit from learning about the way our brain works and the theories and research available to help us achieve happiness. The knowledge is applicable to everyone, but not everyone can implement it. This is why is SO IMPORTANT to have a coach!

Personal Development Coaching is more than teaching. It gives you the knowledge of what you need to do, the tools that help you do it and the support and guidance you need along the way until you gain control over your mind, body, and soul. I will stay with you as long as you want and help you implement those new skills.

Personal Development Coaching deals with the things that are important to you, not to anybody else. This makes this type of coaching incredibly effective, because you can see positive results right away and this encourages you to continue, so you get better and better results. At the same time, your confidence grows, until you feel you can handle just about anything no matter what life throws at you!

There is no formal licensing for Personal Development Coaching. Most coaches study coaching, belief systems, habit change, how minds work and may or may not be certified by a private coaching school. My certification is through Health Coach Institute, accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF), the only globally recognized, independent credentialing program for coach practitioners, via their CCE program (Continuing Coach Education). The ICF is a non-profit, professional organization. Its mission is to build, support and preserve the integrity of the coaching profession.

Yes! My program “The Shift” guarantees that if you go all in on the “HOW” acronym (Honesty, Open-Mindedness, Willingness), follow your goals and action steps, open yourself fully to your coaching and dedicate enough time and effort, you will ABSOLUTELY get great results from your coaching. We use many effective ways to coach you towards that. Every session, you will learn a different technique and we will give you extra work to incorporate the new learning into your life.

Sessions take place via Phone or Video Conference (Zoom/Skype). Each session will be designed around a specific theme in relation to where you are at on your journey, you will talk about what is on your mind, what’s going well and what challenges you are facing. At the end of each session, you will have actionable exercises or things to practice prior to the next session to keep you accountable and on the right path.

Once a week for 90 days (12 total sessions). Each session ranges from 45 minutes to one hour. But please always make sure to allow for the full hour when scheduling.
