She not only speaks from the heart; she truly does “walk her talk.” For more than eight years, she has used Happy Family Training™ and The Happy Kid Toolkit™ in her professional life as well as at home with her husband and two children, Sawyer and Reese.

Danielle has deep experience in creating and nurturing a safe and loving environment, using The Happy Kid Toolkit™ to teach her clients how to become “Happy (Conscious) Kids." A Board Certified Life Coach, Spiritual Coach, and Yoga Instructor, she studied directly under the tutelage of Lynne Forrest, author, psychotherapist and founder of The Reality Formula™. Danielle also has been an active Board Member of The Craniofacial Foundation of America for more than nine years, using these tools to help Craniofacial patients and family members recognize life-limiting patterns of interacting.

Danielle hopes that every client will gain the knowledge and ability to access “Happy Kid Consciousness” and to become models of what it means to change our minds to transform our world.
