Dana is such a sweet and funny person, which is why we’ve been friends for over 25 years. I’ve always trusted that whatever she is doing in life is honest, smart and real. She is also one of my favorite musicians and people.Chris Cornell

Most of my clients are working artists who continuously push themselves to achieve levels of creativity that outshine their past work. They are innovators, rebels, outcasts, anxious and afraid, depressed and dark, brilliant, focused, riding highs and lows, relaxing in between, and in almost constant need of validation for their existence in this world.
I worked with Dana when I was going through a really tough time in my life. Making career decisions, navigating the industry, keeping the family intact, and working through some troubling circumstances brought me to a point where millions of album sales and Grammy’s were a stain. I stayed committed to my path because of the deep conversations we had in confidence. She was never anything but honest with me, gentle and so loving.Confidential

When your highest creative process is hindered, Dana’s level of professionalism is a force that provides deeply intuitive emotional, mental and spiritual support to expand your natural brilliance and bring completion to any project or provide resolution to any problem.
Trusted by leading professional artists. Deep wisdom on demand that leads to results
Why isn’t spirituality practical? It is your natural process as an artist, and you should learn to trust your own stream of consciousness. Dana acts as a conduit to help you do just that during periods when clarity is essential.
Movement and alignment expertise for the artist. Because you need to move fluidly as you create and perform.
The creative process can take a toll on the body, especially as you age. Bring balance and dynamic movement when needed to your process through essential exercises that restore the body’s natural alignment.
What you put in your body has got to make sense for what you do, and nobody understands artists like we do. Be healthy. Have abundant energy.
