Our Programs


Our programs are designed to assist you to reduce stress, gain self awareness, get required nutrition, and empower decisions that support your overall wellbeing.  Our programs are tailored to your specific individual needs and circumstances. 

At Wellness Starts Within, we believe your progress and healing depend on identifying the unique choices and experiences  that have brought you to where you are today. Through that awareness, you develop a sense of understanding and empowerment to let go of things that no longer serve you. This allows room to create space for new ideas, fresh experiences, and changing perspectives so you can enjoy the present moment as you journey toward where you'd like to be. 

Whether you're feeling frustrated at work, unfulfilled in your relationship, or want to improve your physical health, we'll guide you toward a deeper understanding of your mental, emotional, and physical challenges and provide the tools, guidance, and accountability you need to move through them.



Our proprietary wellness programs offer you the private coaching you want from the comfort of your own home.  Our methods and practices are founded in various schools of thought, but there is no standardized program that we attempt to fit you into. Our work together is about supporting you, wherever you may be on your journey.  So, get comfortable, grab a notebook or journal, pour yourself a cup of something delicious and log on.  This is your time.

How it all works

Getting To Know Each Other


We would like to get to know you a little bit before we begin working together. We'd like to give you an opportunity to get to know us, too! So, before we begin, we'd like to offer a 30 minute phone call or video chat session so that we might ask each other questions and start this journey in the best way possible. 

If we feel there is any reason why we may not be a good fit, we'll do our best to offer you suggestions for another company or professional who may be more suited to help you. 

This discovery call is not a requirement. We have often found it to be a beneficial start to the coaching relationship, however, and extend the offer should you like to chat prior to the start of your program.

Establishing Goals and Setting Expectations

In the first days of our work together, you will  spend time establishing clarity on your goals and, together we will outline expectations.  This will determine your focus and action steps throughout the coming 12 weeks. 

Your goals may shift as you progress and that's perfectly normal! In fact, we encourage you to remain flexible and open to experiencing inner changes and paradigm shifts during our work together. 

You will receive guidance, direction, and accountability so you stay focused and develop  sustainable actions that will remain long after the program is over.  Ultimately, change is up to you. We are here to be a support in your journey.  

Coaching Program Logistics


  • We offer 12 week programs for individuals and couples. 
  • Sessions are conducted via Skype or phone and may be recorded. Skype is a free service that can be used almost anywhere in the world with an internet connection. 
  • Sessions are one hour long, once per week.
  • Sessions are scheduled on the same day and time for each of those 12 weeks. Availability in scheduling varies. We will do our best to accommodate your needs. 
  • Couples are encouraged to attend scheduled sessions together for the best results. There will be 12 sessions per couple, regardless of whether both partners are able to attend all sessions.   
  • We work with no more than 10 people at a time. Limiting our number of private clients at any given time ensures we are able to provide the personalized attention and quality service you deserve. 
  • If we do not have an immediate opening when you call to schedule, you will be added to a waiting list and contacted as soon as our availability opens.

Private Coaching

Private coaching will begin on a date we agree to and will include weekly sessions by video chat or phone for 12 weeks. Your weekly sessions will be scheduled in advance, at the beginning of your program.  

You are encouraged to keep a journal and write things down during and between your sessions. 

It is important to remember that there are no "should's" during this time of exploration and discovery.  There is no judgment and everything we discuss is held in complete confidence.  There is never pressure and never a right or wrong way to go about our conversations. Allowing them to unfold naturally, with guidance from Donna, will build trust, and help you to authentically move through whatever challenges you face.  


Fees and Payment Options

 We understand that every situation is different and everyone's needs are different. We don't ever want cost to be a reason why you do or do not choose to work with us.  

Although we are unable to accept insurance at this time, we do offer payment plans that enable you to spread out the program fee over the course of the 12 weeks. We accept all major credit cards and do not charge a fee for this payment service.

Individual - private sessions   $1200

Couple - private sessions          $2200

*Workshops and retreats are priced  based on  venue, length of the event, and other factors.
