“THANK YOU! I really appreciate your vulnerability, honesty, humor, and willingness to talk about all aspects of your autism, parenting, and the challenges you (and we) face as parents of autistic kids. I learned a lot and look forward to you joining us again in the future!”

D.A., Autism Convergence Group, Google


“Danielle is knowledgeable, experienced, and relatable. I started working with Danielle shortly after learning that I was neurodivergent. It was overwhelming to process until I found Danielle. She has helped me understand my neurology, supported me in identifying effective strategies, and coached me through unlearning/learning skills. In addition to coaching, I have benefited immensely from her group coaching, podcasts, and webinars.

As I get to know her more, my respect and admiration deepens. It has been a privileged to work with her.”

Estevanny Jiménez Turns, Chief of Talent and Employee Engagement Chief of Talent and Employee Engagement, School District Of Lancaster


“I am honored to write this recommendation about Danielle. They are the best neurodivergent coach I know. Before meeting Danielle, I learned more from their podcasts than any book I’ve read or training I’ve completed.

As a coach, Danielle is empathetic, intelligent, and extremely knowledgeable. She creates a warm, inviting atmosphere for everyone. When we co-coached a neurodivergent women’s group, there was no question Danielle couldn’t answer. They are full of helpful, research-based strategies for having a good life. Their coaching clients have shared openly the success they are finding because of Danielle’s coaching.

I consider Danielle a mentor and I only wanted to learn from the best! If you work with Danielle in any fashion, you are in great hands.”

– Jacqueline Coursey, Founder, Sacred Space Coaching
