How will my healing sessions benefit you?

Your thoughts, feelings and habits all contribute to your physical and emotional well being. While the conventional model of healthcare focuses on diagnosis and treatment, cultivating long-term health and wellness emphasizes education, awareness and self-care practices.

Relationships engage. Working with a Narrative Health coach provides you with a dynamic foundation for healing. Narrative Health Coaching is an exceptional approach to wellness that goes beyond alleviating symptoms and leads to lasting change. By helping you develop increased awareness and master new skills, this method transforms old patterns of illness into new ways of being.

In our first session, we will discuss your specific emotional and physical challenges in-depth. From here, an individualized coaching program is designed. Through a series of sessions, I will guide you in achieving your goals for healing. For greater emotional support, I formulate personalized flower essence remedies for you to use at home.

A coaching program, including the use of flower essence remedies, is 8-12 sessions, meeting every 2-3 weeks. Each program is designed for your individual needs and no two programs are alike. Once a program is complete, clients are able to thrive and skillfully manage challenges as they arise. Or you could choose to work with me for emotional balancing with Flower Energetics™ only, on an as needed basis. I specialize in guiding clients forward in recovering from trauma through all stages of life.

I meet with clients in person in Santa Cruz CA and world-wide by video or phone. To discuss how to best address your specific needs, Schedule Your Free Consultation, or to learn more, visit my Blog.

My Narrative Health Coaching Practice is Based on Four Core Principles

Stories Matter:
Understand your own story and learn to tell a new one – one that includes increased awareness and insight.

Relationships Engage:
A coaching relationship offers you an environment for deep listening and deep understanding.

Learning Transforms:
Learning from challenges, you increase capacity, master new skills and achieve outstanding results.

Growth Heals:
Growth allows you to reframe challenges and discover new opportunities, fostering greater health.



Flower Energetics™


Flower Energetics™ is an innovative approach to health and wellness, that engages the body, mind and spirit. By incorporating flower essence remedies, positive affirmations and nature based practices, you connect with the beneficial qualities from a selection of healing flowers.

The use of flower essence remedies as a holistic therapy was developed by British physician Dr. Edward Bach in 1930. His system of using plant essences to relieve the disharmony of disease emerged a a simple method to restore out of balance emotions using liquid extracts from the flowers of wild plants and trees.

Flower essence remedies work by transferring subtle energetic medicine from flowers to humans. Homeopathy, acupuncture, reiki, aromatherapy, qui gong, tapping and meditation are other examples of effective therapies that involve a subtle energy field. The remedies are taken internally or used topically and are different from herbal extracts or essential oils.

My Flower Energetics™ sessions include individualized flower essence remedies and positive affirmations to profoundly support your growth and healing.

Narrative Health Coaching


Everybody has a story that they tell themselves, over and over again. What stories do you currently tell, and how do you tell them? Do they serve your healing and growth, or do they keep you stuck? The choices you make and the stories you tell emerge from how you see your life, and have a powerful impact on what you'll be able to do next.

Narrative Health Coaching offers a developmental, balanced and inclusive approach for increasing wellness and fostering sustainable change. This method helps you shift your understanding of your emotional and physical challenges by providing you with new insights and deeper self-awareness. Vastly different from an “illness narrative” which focuses on illness rather than healing, Narrative Health Coaching invites you to come to terms with your current situation, and offers greater freedom of choice from which to understand, manage and resiliently cope with challenges.

Cultivating long-term health and wellness emphasizes education and awareness. By helping you to develop increased awareness and master new skills, this powerful method of coaching transforms old patterns of illness into new ways of being so that you can achieve outstanding results.

What Clients Say

  • The work I have done with Dina has been astoundingly transformational. Dina has a rare and extraordinary depth of knowledge of flower essences—both academically and intuitively. Through my years of working with various homeopathic and herbal practitioners, I have yet to witness someone create such dramatic and clearly foundational changes for me.

    ~ Theresa, Santa Cruz, CA - Culinary Educator, Chef
  • Dina makes each healing session enjoyable, informative and powerful. After our first session together, she easily converted my scattered unfocused life into a smart and clever, straight to the point goal. I currently see myself heading in the right direction both physically and mentally.

    ~ Amanda, New York, NY - Actress/Model
  • Dina and I started with a very comfortable video interview after which she identified some of my core issues and prescribed flower essences for each one. She made other recommendations that have also had a profound effect on my emotional well being. I am forever grateful for her intuitive and nurturing guidance in incorporating flower essences into my daily life practices.

    ~ Winnie, Mendocino, CA - Flower Grower/Designer

  • I am enjoying my consultations with Dina. The flower essences that she picks resonate with me and have smoothed out my day to day moods. Her office is clean and bright and comfortable. She has helped me find clarity in a number of different issues in my life. I look forward to working with her into the future.

    ~ Liz, Santa Cruz, CA - BookKeeper
  • I have been working with Dina for about a month. She is a wonderful person and her energy via the phone and video conference is inviting and easy to be around. This makes it so comfortable and provides an open and safe environment for me to speak freely. Her healing methodologies are new for me, as I had never heard of flower essence therapy, but I am definitely more self-aware and notice things around me, such as flowers, people, smells and my reactions. I think her innovative style is fresh, and I like and respect new approaches to inviting peace and harmony into my life. I believe that there is an impact being made. With her empathetic listening skills, she has been able to suggest a healing topic that is relevant to my current and past experiences. I encourage others to get a free consult with her on her website. I highly recommend it!

    ~ Brittney, Santa Monica, CA - Licensed Massage Therapist
  • I worked with Dina for 5 months and it was a great experience. Flower essences are a great source of support in finding a life balance and Dina is so intuitive and inspiring. I reached my goals within a very short time and look forward to working with Dina in the future.

    ~ Annette D., Bozeman, MT - Civil Engineering Designer
  • In short, working with Dina changed my outlook on my life. While opened to the process, I didn't quite know what to expect. I was dealing with MS and trying a find a way to push through my daily symptoms. With Dina's guidance, I learned that it's ok not to be ok at times and being vulnerable isn't the same as being weak. Now, instead of "dealing" and "pushing through", I'm living, enjoying, and getting the most out of my life.

    ~ Agnes, Racine, WI - MS Warrior, Volunteer Coordinator MS Walk
  • Dina has brought me into a whole new world and perspective when it comes to healing. We have had about 10 sessions and the first time we met, I was completely taken aback by how wildly different it was from any other therapy I've had. I finally felt like I was being understood clearly, and in addition she brought about a wealth of wisdom and guidance. Working with flower essences is a beautiful process and Dina has makes it really approachable. She is kind and thoughtful and incredibly knowledgeable.

    ~ Audrey, San Francisco, CA - Botany Student, Florist
  • My healing sessions with Dina have been nothing short of awesome. I've worked with many different types of healers over the years, and have found Dina's calm, light, compassionate presence to be quite unique. I feel immediately at ease with her, able to share and reveal my authentic thoughts and feelings, and she holds them with a clarity and safety that is hard to describe. It's a gift. Through her Narrative Health Coaching as well as her recommendations for Flower Essences, I have seen my own personal growth expand immensely. I truly feel that she is in my corner cheering me on, and is also a sanctuary to which I can receive guidance and support during easeful and some of the most difficult times of my life.

  • At first I was very nervous and not sure what to expect. Dina sent me the link for us to chat using Zoom and as soon as I saw her I was somehow put at ease. I am not sure if it was her smile or her body language, or her spirit that came through but I was in a place that I could open up and it felt good. Each encounter was enlightening and I feel I can refer back to her notes and continue my self work. I miss our frequent scheduled meet ups but we keep in touch and it somehow makes me feel grounded. I know she is always there for a visit.

    ~ Maria - Virginia Beach, VA - Photographer
  • Dina is wonderful. Her presence gives clients the space to speak openly and honestly about their life; assured that there is no judgement. She is very mindful to keep clients integrated in each part of the session and always checks in with clients about each flower she puts in their bouquet- which I admired a lot. I worked with Dina for 8 sessions and she helped me navigate through the twists and turns of being a twenty-something year old. With her guidance I was able to build ways to maintain balance in my life and connect to my own intuitive voice. Thank you for the amazing healing work that you do!
