Life is Relationship.

In our most intimate relationships, beginning with our relationship with Self, we face our greatest challenges and our greatest potential for reflection, celebration, and growth. My work, whether one-on-one, in group workshops, or leading a ceremony is about honoring, celebrating, transforming, and enhancing all relationships:
with Self, Others, and the Divine.

What My Clients Are Saying

Working with DiAnna was a pleasure for two reasons– what she offered me, and what she didn’t offer me. DiAnna is consistently upbeat and encouraging. She will nudge you toward your true path– I didn’t say “push” on purpose– she is not pushy. But what I found most refreshing about working with her is that you can tell her anything and she will greet it with interest and excitement, not judgment. She enjoys what she does and wants you to enjoy what you do.

DiAnna brought the heart and soul to our marriage ceremony. She was funny, collaborative, and more than willing to ‘go off book’ where we wanted. Truth be told, we were off-book for the whole thing! She tailor-made a completely unique ceremony that fit us so well. I can’t tell you how many people at the wedding (and after!) have told us how perfect it was. Tom and I keep humor at the center of our relationship, and DiAnna most definitely rose to the task of sharing that with our family and loved ones. Having a person who was so invested in us, and who so obviously listened and cared about us, made our day that much more special. ~Nana and Tom Griffin
