Kindness gives to another, Compassion knows no ‘other.’ (T. Freeman)
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” (Teilhard de Chardin)
As a Grief Specialist, I provide caring support and qualified guidance for the woman whose identity, purpose, faith, and expectations of life are called into question by the pain of loss.
Grieving allows the heart to accept loss and move into a new reality with hope and joy.
I approach healing and personal growth from a spiritually holistic perspective, thus I am open to any faith tradition. My faith is in you. You possess everything you need to find your way out of your darkness. If you choose to work with me, we will build upon the beliefs that give you strength, and bring to light your hidden gifts for coping with life. I will partner with you as your guide on the journey to discovery of self. We will work as a team to heal the pain of your loss, finding that sacred place in your heart where your grief can dwell in peace.
awakening and rising
from the depths of their deepest fears,
like a Phoenix rising from the ashes…
reborn with a wisdom and strength
that creates a light
which shines brightly enough
to help, encourage, and inspire others
out of their own darkness.

A great deal of my clinical nursing career was spent working side-by-side with dying patients and their families on a daily basis. This challenge, combined with a variety of profound personal losses, drew me into a deep, ongoing exploration of griefwork.
Grief turns a woman’s world upside-down by calling into question her identity, belief system, and expectations of life. Inspired by the many women who have placed their grieving hearts in my hands, I discovered a gift for creating soul-healing spaces within which women feel safe to process their pain.
www.womenembracebeing.com is for the woman seeking professional guidance through the painful, confusing demands of the grief process. I offer an integrated approach to healing, addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual impact of coping with loss, adapting to change, and creating a “new normal.”
Online and on-site small group workshops* designed for women to step together into the joy of discovering, exploring, and nurturing their inborn feminine wisdom.

“In addition to being a Registered Nurse, Diana is a woman of infinite compassion, common sense, love and humor – traits so desperately needed in today’s life. Women are Diana’s area of expertise (although she excels in parenting, too) and her insight is an invaluable tool.Diana has seen me through some very rough periods of my life with sensitivity and just a dollop of “tough love.” She helped me navigate the grieving process when my husband died 17 years ago. She brings creativity, “out of the box” thinking, and a “wholeness” to her craft that enables her client to see things in a clear way. Often this new perspective is just the ticket to finding the path to a better place.Diana’s knowledge of essential oils and other holistic remedies takes her ability to help the healing process to a new level. She taught me several techniques, which, in addition to required medical treatment, helped me overcome two serious medical conditions in the last 12 months alone.
Though we live over 1,000 miles apart, I always feel like Diana is right there for me, in any situation. Though we are cousins, I consider her more my sister and very best friend.“
