Read what Diane’s clients are saying about her:
“I am person who is not comfortable dancing. I signed up to participate in Dancing Mindfulness while keeping an open mind as what to expect. I am so happy that I took the leap.
Diane was the perfect person to guide the group into experiencing mindful awareness through music. Her expertise and enthusiasm lead us through an afternoon of dancing, mediating and self-awareness. The session was a fun, no pressure, at your own pace, healing, rhythmic, and joyful experience. I left the session feeling empowered and peaceful.
It was an enlightening and healing afternoon and I look forward to the next time that I, ” Dance as if No One Is Watching”.
“I’ve always enjoyed dancing and before this class I had the mind set, that I in needed to be with a pretty partner.
I went to the first (Dancing Mindfulness) class after a long bout of depression from a divorce that just didn’t seem like it would end. The anxiety and racing thoughts of whom I thought was my partner and the realization that I had no partner took me to an apiffany of transition. I decided to dance alone, yet in the presence of other people. So I danced and let go.
I actually am interested in dancing more, the group has become my surrogate partner. I look forward to the next class and like Bob Marley once said. “Don’t worry about a thing.”. I freely can dance and not worry about the other person.”
“I found this teleclass to be a good foundation for the practice of Animal Reiki. As always Diane provided clear instructions in a great and fun learning environment, incorporating pertinent stories of her own experiences while encouraging open discussion and sharing from the class members. She is an excellent Reiki teacher and her understanding and love of animals are evident. Since taking the class I have been able to apply the techniques that I learned to Help one of my dogs to reduce this stress and anxiety, and to help several other animals with behavior or health issues. Thank you Diane for Sharing your knowledge and passion of animal Reiki!”
“Diane enthusiastically meets her students where they are and presents realistic ways to meet individual goals”.
“I have been alone and trying to work things out. This class gave me a chance to move out of isolation and learn that it’s okay to love myself and just be. Thank you for your inspiration.
“As I danced mindful at the recent Dancing Mindfulness Event I was reminded that dance is my way of connecting with Spirit and celebrating all the love that is in and around me.”
I truly enjoyed dancing at the Dancing Mindfulness Event that was held and look forward to doing so again in the near future.

Simply put, she is a really skilled, capable, competent and compassionate person who is an inspiration to all. Arthur Kohler, General Counsel at National Legal Systems
I was fortunate to discover Diane’s business, A Step Forward, through her use of social media as a promotional tool. Her knowledge of Reiki, energy healing, hypnosis and self-improvement, along with the ease in which she connects with her clients and students captured my attention. I had considered Reiki Master training for many years, but had yet to meet the right teacher. When I met Diane, I knew I would benefit greatly from her expertise and teaching style. I highly recommend Diane and am now a very grateful Reiki Master.

Diane is highly educated and I have used her as well as referred business to her for Reiki instruction. I have taken classes at A Step Forward and have gotten very good results. I have never had any of my own clients come back with any negative feedback either. I will continue to refer business to Diane. She is a pleasure to work with and a wealth of knowledge.
