life & spiritual coaching
Live Your Story
Sometimes we need support & structure to help us achieve our goals, and, even more importantly, to help us define the kind of lives we want to live. Life purpose can be a scary concept, but it is also the driving force for meaning and fulfillment.
What the heck is life or spiritual coaching?
Is coaching like therapy?
What's the process?
How much does it cost?
“Deana is an absolutely brilliant coach. I don’t know what I would have done these past months without her support!"
Life & Spiritual Coach, Musician, Sound Engineer
"Deana Barone... helped me get past whatever was blocking me... to find the very ESSENCE of what I needed to say. That is a potent thing. I empowered myself... and that was precisely her intent: help me create tools for my own success."
Author, Storyteller, Former Director of the Los Angeles Storytelling Festival

WRITING & VERBAL
They tell you...
...you must be "born with it" -- charisma or writing ability or speaking skill -- to do it well.
That's a load of crap.
Every single speaking and writing skill can be worked and practiced and improved, especially when you figure out what makes you passionate about the subject at hand. You may never be an MLK level writer or orator (or maybe you will!), but you can still affect others with your passion, your point of view, and your vision. Verbal & written communication (along with actions, of course) are the basis by which we, as humans, can influence each other and our environment for the good.
Research shows that people are moved by STORY -- the most effective way to communicate.

Deana has worked with DirecTV innovators, small business owners, job seekers, and salary negotiators. She has also helped college applicants for more than a decade to submit applications that reflect their true passion and authentic voice.
"Deana has a wonderful way of bringing clarity to a situation, evoking one's own strength of expression. She helped me with simple strategies to achieve my goals and intended outcome."
"When I had an idea for two new businesses, Deana coached me to create actionable, manageable goals — and kept me on track, making me feel like I had the support I needed. She’s a great find... I always feel energized after talking to her!"
