If You're Not Happy with Your Romantic
Situation...You Have the Power to Change It!
I truly believe that dating & relationships are all about you! And that's great news, because it means if you're not happy with your situation...YOU have the power to change it!

Start taking action toward the relationship of your dreams! It’s all about your choices, your actions, your thoughts and feelings. Energy is contagious, and like attracts like. What kind of energy are you radiating?

As your coach I will help you decide EXACTLY what you want and need in a relationship. That means helping you identify your past patterns (trust me you have them) and creating a set of personal rules to guide you through picking a better partner next time.

Most importantly I'll help you feel great about yourself and inspire positive energy.
Self-confidence is incredibly attractive!

And if you're currently in a relationship, I can help you make it the best it can possibly be! I'll even help you decide if it's the right one for you or not. So many people stay in the wrong relationship because they think it's the best they'll get. Or because they're afraid to admit they're not happy. If that's what's going on with you I'll listen closely and together we'll figure out what's best for you!

In addition to my training, I have twenty years of personal dating experience and I'm now blessed to enjoy a completely healthy, incredibly happy true partnership with a wonderful man who's the love of my life. I want to help you find the same romantic bliss!

Growing up just outside Philadelphia, the “City of Brotherly Love,” Donna became a hopeless romantic…utterly fascinated with dating and relationships. At age 18, a modeling agency moved her to New York City. She was thrilled to be in the heart of America’s biggest singles scene!

In the dressing rooms of her modeling and acting bookings, she listened with great interest to the other girls’ dating tales and disasters. Although she herself was a serial monogamist (always had a boyfriend), Donna never managed to pick the “right” men.

At age 30, the best thing that could ever have happened to her did: She had her heart badly broken. The experience was an epiphany. “If I was ever going to have a healthy relationship, I needed to learn exactly what one was,” she says of that time. Self-help books became her new passion.

In 2006, she enrolled in the Personal and Life Coaching Certificate Program at New York University’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies. Naturally, her Coaching specialty is Dating and Relationships.

Now hailed as one of New York City’s top dating and relationship experts, Donna loves providing her clients with a positive, empowering approach to their life, liaisons and career. She acknowledges that there is a shortage of truly happy couples in this world, and her strong intention is to bring romantic bliss to the masses.
