What Makes This Program Different?


Assessments don't get to the heart of why you do what you do. This program uses your childhood as the doorway to understand what makes you feel alive and truly MOTIVATES you in your career.


You'll get crystal clear on whether you want to change your job, career, employer, industry, or start a business. You'll learn strategies to build your network, tap the hidden job market, and design a roadmap of your next steps.


I pride myself on integrating psychology and career development in my approach — a unique combination of reflection, strategy, and cheerleading to help you make meaningful changes.


This coaching program will not promise you your dream job because it might not be realistic in the job market. This program will promise to help you find something much better that honors your needs and circumstances.

Client Success Stories

Find your inner compass

My experience with Danielle was life changing. Having completed her program, there is no doubt that my strengths, talents and what I find fulfilling, is imperative to happiness in life and work. She has great active listening skills and intuition and really helps guide her clients to discovering their best selves. Danielle has a format, a methodology to finding "your inner compass" and it works.

—Lauren R.

Discover what makes you tick

Danielle helped me to discover what makes me tick, reconnect with my passions, and discover how my skills and passions could be applied at the next stop on my career path. I left my sessions with a sense of clarity and comfort in my job search, as well as techniques, knowledge and resources I could apply.

—Joshua W.
Attorney Advisor

Understand What Motivates You

This program was great because it really makes you take a look at yourself closely and understand what motivates you. I’d been struggling a lot in jobs that just didn’t fulfill me but thanks to working with Danielle, I now know what kind of work keeps me motivated and what kind of work I enjoy. This was money well spent! If you’re struggling to find that next step in your career I highly recommend the Inner Compass Process!

—Daniel Martinez
Senior Product Manager

Gain Valuable Networking Skills

Danielle's approach to helping me figure out my best path as I transitioned careers was right-on. Danielle is a great and wise listener. Additionally, my networking skills went through the roof as a result of my time working with Danielle.

After working with Danielle, I took a risk on a seven-month program in data science and ended up with three competitive job offers. I couldn't have done it without her.

—Jess T.

Identify Your Career Direction 

An affirming, smart, inspiring, and skilled guide is how I would describe Danielle as a career coach. Her step-by-step process and exercises helped me identify a career direction that is a great fit with my skills and interests in a just a few sessions. Danielle is perceptive and thoughtful. She helped me uncover my main motivations, values, passions, and skills. Then she provided me with brilliant tools and strategies to research careers with the greatest potential for high satisfaction. Before attending Danielle’s coaching service, I was unsure about the next steps to take in my career. By the end of the process, I felt confident and excited. I highly recommend Danielle to anyone looking for career direction help.

—Brent Henderson
Technical Product Manager

Reconnect with your Inner Self and Identify Your True Calling

For a while now, I've been looking for a fulfilling career, rather than just a job. I have also been sidetracked by seeing what my friends and colleagues have moved on to do and that narrowed my vision on what I thought I should be doing. Working with Danielle, however, helped me understand my narrative - what the circumstances were that drove me to find satisfaction in my previous careers. With a better understanding of myself and what intrinsically drives me, I've been able to identify a career that I believe I will find fulfilling.

—Stephan Ahn
Lead Advisor


I received the tools I needed to fly

Working with Danielle was a game-changer. I love the thorough stepwise plan - which ultimately led me to my dream job. I came to Inner Compass Coach self-employed and wanting to find a new career and I received the tools I needed to fly.

—Lauren Condell
Director of Product Marketing

A better understanding of myself and what drives me

"I LOVED the process of working Danielle. I went into the process looking for some clarity on where I wanted to take my career. I knew I wanted to do something different, but didn't know WHAT. I really enjoyed that Danielle had a really specific approach to our exercises, and a concrete process to get to a conclusion. I love where ended up, and I'm SO excited to move forward and chase my (much clearer) now career path!"

Senior Manager, PMP

Jim was always positive and encouraging in his approach with me.
