Life isn’t about jumping from one crisis to another. Families aren’t meant to live in chaos. There is a better way. There is a way out.
There is HOPE!
Hi! I’m Diana
I’m a wife, a mom to 3 awesome (but also very challenging) kids, and I’m a certified professional parent and family coach. Two of my children came to me through adoption and struggle with all sorts of issues including FASD. RAD, ADHD, mood disorder, learning disabilities, and more. Sometimes they’re my greatest challenge. Always they’re my greatest gifts. Though we’re far from perfect and we still have our less than stellar days, we are lightyears from where we used to be!
That doesn’t mean getting there was easy. It wasn’t! In fact, there was a time when the stress of it all very literally nearly killed me. That’s why I now do what I do. I’m not okay with parents being thrown into the deep end of the ocean and expected to figure things out on their own while swimming against the sharks. I’m not okay with families imploding because they don’t have the right tool, skills, or help they need to do their jobs. I’m not okay with families being shattered because they tried to do something good.
I have a passion for helping hurting and exhausted families leave the trenches of chaos, reclaim peace, and restore hope. I’ve been down this road. I know how intense, scary, and utterly exhausting things can be. I also know how critical it is to have someone in my court who has my back and understands how truly extreme the issues we deal with can be. I found my way back to the light. I still know the way out. I’d love to help you you find it too!

“I’ve been overwhelmed and exhausted. I’ve been at the end of my rope. I’ve lost hope and all will to do anything, but then ended up trudging forward again. I’ve been there but I’m past that place now. So if I can offer anything, let it be hope that it can get better. The best thing I did for myself was work with Diana who understood it all. She helped me “find my flag” and rise above the rubble. I think part of why my kids changed is that I changed. Does that mean I don’t have bad days? No, but it’s easier to find a path through it all.”
“Diana’s coaching approach is welcoming and comfortable. She is very open to questions when clarifying various details of understanding. I highly recommend her for others to learn from. Diana has lived first hand dealing with trauma; she gets it. Her past 10 years of seeking and searching for answers saved me hours of hopelessness since my coping skills have often included logic or other reasoning approaches. It is no wonder many parents slide down the slippery slope of blaming themselves. I am hopeful others will take advantage of the lifeline Serenity Links Coaching offers.”
“Before coaching, I spent all my time trying to find the “magic bullet” for my kids. Life was crazy I was burnt out. I had lost myself in the process of helping my children find their way out of the hurt. Coaching has changed how I react, respond and interact with my children. I see now that if I don’t care for myself first, I will have nothing to give or an example to set for my children.
Don’t be surprised how far life will take you once you are on this journey. Six months ago, we were living in a home we loved but a community that had nothing to offer our family. Since working with Diana we have located a better psychiatric facility, moved to a home closer to those services, found a church home that provides us a huge amount of love and support. I never would have pictured this life 6 months ago.”
