Lawyer and Executive Coaching 2018-05-21T17:17:19+00:00

I coach lawyers, executives, and career professionals.

What would your organization look like if everyone were operating at peak performance?

Working with a coach, whether you’re an attorney, actor or athlete, greatly enhances performance. Coaching is a partnership designed to elicit powerful solutions to increase existing strengths and address any performance-related concerns at any level.

Together, we tackle areas of your professional and personal life that feel stagnant or simply needs improvement.

Don’t wait. Take the first step to achieving your goals and dreams. Set up a free initial consultation. Contact me at 215-696-3079, CoachDena@gmail.com, or send me a message.

I am a professional coach with a national practice, helping clients in all walks of life achieve career satisfaction, polish marketing skills, increase confidence, improve work/life balance and rediscover their sense of purpose and joy. During my 20th year of practicing law, I made the decision to become a coach. After reinventing myself several times and transitioning from deeply unhappy lawyer to one with a great sense of purpose and direction, I wanted to help others do the same in their careers and lives. I am certifed by the International Coach Federation and a former board member of the Philadelphia chapter. I have successfully coached a best-selling author, lawyers, accountants, and chief executives in many industries. I graduated from Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia and the College of Executive Coaching in California.

I am a regular contributor on The Legal Intelligencer and The Huffington Post. Read my latest articles:
