"I have found myself going to Della during events of change, when I have to make challenging decisions, or when I need words of direction in understanding my career path.   At all times, Della offers me support and encouragement so that I can move forward in the best way - for me.   She often asks me questions that help me be introspective to discover the answer. " -Suzy K., London

"Della is one of the most in demand people I know, but she is always accessible and never fails to be an engaged listener.  She has a true gift for knowing when and how to ask pertinent and incisive questions that have helped me discover my own truth with regard to my personal and professional development.  A fountain of inspiration, Della has also empowered me to take on new challenges and adapt to change, drawing upon her wealth of experience. Della is energetic, sincere, and upbeat personality is deeply affecting and highly contagious, and engaging with her has transformed the way I connect with the people around me." -Yi H., California



"My life changed so rapidly in the last year that I didn't really know which way was up.  I had been reactive all of my life, living in the past and the future, but never in the present. Then, I met Della. Wanting to rid myself of anger, judgments, grudges, unhappiness, fear & anger, I spoke with Della at great length about extreme life issues- disease, leaving the work force, divorce, and internal anger I had carried my entire life. Della's guidance was calming allowed me to consider other ways of living.  With her counsel and observation, I have become an entirely different person: happy, content, full of joy and life, full of love for the world." -Ken B.,  New York, Paris, Chiang Mai
