Reviews From Coaching Clients

Mindfulness improves well-being. Increasing your capacity for mindfulness supports many attitudes that contribute to a more satisfying life.


It is mindblowing how much mindfulness has transformed my life. I am much more conscious of my decisions, I stress less, and my outlook on life is much more positive. Thank you Dana for your guidance.


The mindfulness course that I took with Dr. Garfin and it was a great way for me to be introduced into the power of mindfulness in dealing with stress. 


Dr. Garfin's class provided insight into a new way of thinking. I have heard about mindfulness before but Dr. Garfin guided me on using mindfulness to shift my mindset into a healthier one.
