Your full potential has not yet been realized.

Instead of letting life happen to you, it’s time for you to start happening to life.

Your identity

Who you are and whose you are matters. It’s time to shed your labels and limits to become unmasked, unstuck, and unstoppable.

Feeling Leads to Healing

It’s Time to Break the Silence!

Recent awareness of sexual harassment has provided its victims with visibility and a voice. But for many victims, our stories of pain are different.

They may never make the headlines. Your violators may not be famous personalities. We may never call the police or wind up in an emergency room.

Yet we carry our pain with us— bullying, abuse, divorce, infidelity, abortion- wearing it as a scarlet letter. We hide the offenses of others behind our own mask of shame.

Break free from traps and lies.

Embrace healing and hope.

Transform into a life of truth.

“I never hesitate to consider Daphne for a presentation that will engage and motivate attendees.  She is open, approachable and peppers all presentations with the right amount of laughter and self-introspection that puts all at ease.

The feedback I received from her “Untangling the Communication Conundrum” lunch and learn was fantastic. Attendees felt that she provided some excellent points about working with people and provided tools that they could implement right away.  A win-win for all of us!”
