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

DiAnna can help you see a connection between intimacy and spirituality that is both uplifting and surprising. Her wisdom, humor and practical advice regarding the sexual dynamics between couples inspired me to make positive change in my relationship with myself, which in turn has positively affected my relationship with my spouse. It’s rare to find such a strong champion for a healthy, happy sexual relationship, especially a person who can articulate these ideas so well and make them accessible. Just a few minutes talking with her can change your whole perception of intimacy for the better. – JN, Candler, NC

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
