"Diane is that rare teacher who changes lives! She shares her superb knowledge of the human condition through her incredible teaching. Working with her over the last 15 years has changed the physical and mental path of my musical career."--Phil H. 


"Deep sensitivity...a natural for accompanying others along their own personal journeys."--Mary R.


"Diane is skilled and intuitive in her deep knowledge of this method and its applications. She has helped me immeasurably in tailoring techniques for coping with severe arthritis and other infirmities that come with aging." --Elizabeth S.


I bring my passion for lifelong learning, 20+ years of experience as an educator, facilitator and advocate, and my empathy, compassion and humor to improving the quality of life for people from all walks of life.

My strong analytical ability to assess challenges for others guides me in developing creative strategies to assist them towards a path of greater awareness, vibrant aging, optimal physical functioning and cognitive health. 


My background as a classically trained musician and position as a former Assistant Principal Cellist of the San Francisco Symphony have provided me with special insight into the challenges faced by performing artists. I also hold 3 professional certificates in the field of Gerontology: Advocacy, Advanced Behavioral and Cognitive Care, and End of Life Care and Support. My most recent career development has been training in the Principles of Healing Collective Trauma with internationally renowned teacher, Thomas Hübl.
