The Wholly Shift session is simple, powerful, and fast!


I just answered Dawn’s questions with the first thing that came to my mind. In the end, I was told not to think anymore about the session. This would allow the subconscious to release the limiting belief. It was that easy. 


Prior to Wholly Shift, I did years of many other therapies including cognitive behavior therapy. 


Wholly Shift went much deeper just in one session. I felt a lot of emotion which was great. It encouraged me to go forward. That night I didn’t have racing thoughts as usual. I had many realizations. 


For example, cognitive-behavioral therapy also asks questions, however, the Wholly Shift questions were different. They had more of an impact on me. I worked with my therapist using CBT for six months. In our sessions, we worked on figuring out my challenges. Then I was given tools to take home and consistently use to help change my thoughts over time. With Wholly Shift, I didn’t have to do anything else after my session. The questions triggered the subconscious to release the thoughts and beliefs that had been holding me back. 


I would highly recommend Wholly Shift and Dawn! I felt safe and not judged by her.

Karen - Health Care Professional 

I had a life-changing session with Dawn!

I have been consumed with anxiety since I was little. I was bullied. Felt out of place. I had no friends.

I love to travel and visit family. When I fly I'm extremely anxious for weeks prior to the trip and during the flight. I get so upset that I throw up. 

After the session with Dawn, I was excited to plan a trip to Hawaii to visit my aunt. I wasn't anxious for weeks prior to the flight like before. During the flight, I was prepared with tools that Dawn customized for me to help with any anxiety. I felt a little anxiety. I used the tools and they helped a lot! 

Dawn has REALLY help me! I feel better about myself. I'm focused on making good memories. Best of all the anxiety is so much less. 

Thank you so much, Dawn!

Crystal - Teacher




Wholly Shift session with decision making facilitation. Challenge - Stress from work, life, future goals, and self-inflicted pressure causing stress.

I spoke with Dawn about the stress I was feeling both financially and from my own doing. She really helps me by talking out my problems and taking a different approach mentally to my situation at the time. During the session, Dawn was able to help me get to the root of my issues. She helped by offering multiple solutions to look at things more in the “big picture”. By the end of the session, I had a new focus and plan to move forward. I was no longer overwhelmed and had a clear renewed focus!

I felt comfortable speaking to Dawn about these issues and would absolutely recommend her to anyone feeling they’re overwhelmed with Anxiety. Thanks, Dawn!

Steven - Financial Auditor

had a Wholly Shift session with Dawn. I was getting very depressed about how depleted and defeated I felt from doing my startup for 5 years. I felt a lot of self-doubts. I tried so hard to get investors interested in investing.

After the session, I felt more optimistic because my faith was restored to keep moving forward. It shifted my thinking from stuck to hope. 

The next day I heard from one investor that I reached out to over  9 months ago. With in the next couple of days, two more investors reached out to me.

Jan - CEO Eco-Friendly 





The Wholly Shift session to help release the fear of flying.


This was my first time discussing this phobia with a professional. It all started when I was on a flight that the entire time it felt like the plane was falling out of the sky. We all thought we were going to die. It was the most terrifying experience of my life. 


I felt if I ignored it it would just go away.  It didn't.  My other solution was just never to fly again ever!


Dawn asked questions to help my mind get unstuck. Then we discussed when the fear of flying first happened and how I feel when I’m in the air.  We talked about what triggers panic attacks. Right on the spot, Dawn asked questions to learn more about me so she could customize tools to help me both mentally and physically. I use these tools while flying to help ease my mind. They really help!


Since the trama, the slightest bit of turbulence would cause a panic attack and now I am much calmer and experience very little anxiety when flying. Also, for weeks prior to flying, I wouldn't be able to sleep because I was consumed with anxiety with the thought of flying. After the session, I haven't had any anxiety prior to the scheduled flights. 

Go see Dawn, she can help you!

Wholly Shift session.


It's been 3 months now since our session. It really worked! I've been biting my fingernails until they bled since I was a little girl. I've tried everything to stop. Nothing has worked. 

After the session sometimes I found myself chewing on one finger and then I stopped. It wasn't like that before where I would notice and couldn't stop. I can't believe it! I'm so happy! My husband Dan is very impressed!

I felt safe when working with Dawn. She is fun, kind, and compassionate. I didn't feel judged. I really didn't think it would work. Do yourself a favor and work with Dawn.

Simona - Master Yoga Instructor 

The Wholly Shift session works!

Prior to working with Dawn, I had been challenged with difficult conversations both personally and professionally. I found myself avoiding conflicts, not saying anything, or removing myself from the situation.

Since our session together, I have had several challenging conversations that I proactively addressed, with a sense of acceptance, comfort, and ownership.  I did not experience any angst or trepidation before or after the conversations. On a scale from 1-10, 10 being the highest, I feel like I've improved my experience around difficult conversations by 7 to 8 points.


Zack - VP of Internal Communications

The session with Dawn is unlike anything I've ever experienced.


I have been very sensitive to receiving and giving feedback since I was a child. I always felt like I was bad. I would feel embarrassed and want to hide. This caused a lot of stress for me at work. 

During the session, I experienced many positive shifts including a shift around feeling like I was bad. Dawn helped me create a new story. This was a big shift for me, too.  I experienced a lot of old negative baggage leaving me. It was amazing!


Dawn is a patient, non-judging, present, and skilled. I felt like I was in good hands. 

I can now receive and give feedback and feel good about myself. It's not a negative experience for me any longer. What a relief. 

On a scale from 1-10, 10 being the highest, I improved by 9 points. 

This will greatly improve my work-life around giving and receiving feedback. 

If you want to be more effective and happier at work, Dawn can help you!

Jade - Change Management

The Wholly Shift session for my limiting belief around money.

I felt like money was bad and that I should not have a lot of it. I also felt I should not charge a lot of money for my time and services.

In the beginning, I was unsure about changing my belief about how I felt about money. I was taught my entire life that money was bad and I should let other people have it. When I realized it was ok for me to have money and in fact necessary for me to take care of myself and my family, I felt much better. I realized that the money I earn is a reflection of how much I help other people so it is a good way to tell that I am living according to my own goals. I felt much more confident about asking for money. My income went up and my debt went down. This made me feel very good and freer about doing the things I want to do with my life. 


There was a moment when the old belief just seemed ridiculous which allowed me to look at money in a whole new way.

Dawn is very supportive and encouraging. She never made me feel like my beliefs were wrong or bad. 

I like that in one session I could feel totally different about something that had been bothering me my entire life. 

I realized that it was my perspective that was holding me back and causing fear. The session was about an hour and felt like it kept progressing the entire time. Dawn’s methods felt very clear and targeted toward a resolution to the limiting belief I was holding on to. 

I no longer feel that money is bad and that I am bad if I have a lot of it. By shifting my belief I am able to envision a life with lots of money and freedom to live the way I want. I have been able to increase my income and be smarter with the money I have. 

I highly recommend Dawn’s service to people who have been struggling with an area in their life for a while and want to find a solution that works.

Omar - Small Business Owner

Dawn worked with me during a Wholly Shift session. The session went far beyond most anything I had previously done. In the following week, I experienced some serious transformations! I had been suffering from some severe social anxiety which was stopping me from making meaningful connections and ruining my dating life. Not only did the dates start flooding in within a single week, but I also noticed I received much more positive feedback from my Hypnotherapy clients.  I experienced multiple improvements in other areas of my life which all seemed only marginally related to my original problem. Very satisfied with the results!

Arnaud - Hypnotherapist

I had the pleasure of sitting next to Dawn on a flight to California. We talked about many things. At one point I asked her what she did for work. She explained how she helps people by removing limiting beliefs and reprogramming their subconscious mind. 

I was truly intrigued. I asked her how she did it. She went on to explain what she did and how easy and effective it was.


I said, "WOW! I wish I worked with you when I was a manager for 45 years, it would have made my life a heck of a lot easier! Being a manager of people you are constantly having to deal with mental, emotional, and behavioral challenges. You should work with managers."

Bill - Manager - General Electric

Problem-solving session around work-related conflict.


I was angry that someone else deleted all the work I had done to prepare for the meeting. I thought we agreed that I was going to do the work and we would follow the plan. 

I realized I wasn’t in control of everything. Looking back I could have chosen to address how I felt during the call instead of holding it inside.

I sometimes feel frustrated with the process of analyzing my behavior. I knew it was going to help and at the same time can be impatient with the process.

I was much more relaxed and relieved. I was able to let the emotion go and not have the situation continue to run in my head and get me upset. 

Dawn does a great job of validating and not judging which makes the process easier and I feel supported. 

I like that I felt better afterward. I like that it was short and focused on solving the problem I was facing. 

I feel like other forms of self-help or therapists focus a lot on the past which takes a long time and doesn’t necessarily make me feel better. Dawn’s method feels more like a conversation with a good friend. I don’t feel like I am being analyzed or made worse.

The session helped me by relieving the ongoing anxiety and stress I was having about a single event in the past. It also gave me a new perspective on how to handle events like this in the future. 

She didn’t tell me what to do. Instead, she supported me in finding the solution that felt natural and I could embrace. It’s amazing how powerful a perspective is.

I will continue to seek help from Dawn. It's time and money well spent! I highly recommend working with Dawn!

David - U.S. Business Development Manager

Dawn is a natural facilitator. She does it with such ease and clarity. I've only experienced this level of professionalism with a seasoned psychologist. I was truly amazed!


In an informal setting at a conference, I had a conversation with Dawn. At that point, I was about to present while juggling many things and dealing with multiple changes to the original plan. Naturally, I was a bit stressed. I needed to make decisions about how to prioritize the current situation. Dawn was a wonderful listener. She helped me to untangle all the pieces of the situation. She then helped to break it down into smaller pieces.  She then strategically facilitated helping me think about how to address the immediate ones.


Throughout the conversation, she was calm and compassionate. What was different is you could tell that she is someone who has handled chaos with grace and positive outcomes. I felt calm and in control after our conversation.

Sangeeta - CEO - Healthcare Startup 

I did my session on my athletic performance.

I've been doing triathlons for 9 years. I always felt that I was not fast and strong enough to do well in the races. 

I felt good about our session. I experienced some awareness about my childhood. I noticed in the following week I felt better about myself overall. More positive. 

As I was training I wasn't thinking about not being fast or strong enough like before. My times were improving. I was so surprised! 

Thanks, Dawn!

Tom - Triathlete 





I attended one of Dawn's workshops on how to work with the subconscious mind to release limiting beliefs and rewire the subconscious for success. 

During the workshop, I experienced a huge change around my biggest dream that I've had for many years. This dream never seemed real to me. I started crying with tears of joy. I now felt that my dream was real and that I could make it happen! I was so excited and couldn't believe the change. I was very surprised!


I have been practicing mindfulness and meditation on a very high level for years. I have tried all kinds of techniques and therapies to realize my dreams over the years. Dawn's approach works!

Dawn is very organized. She and her material are easy to understand. Dawn is calm, patient, compassionate, supportive, and knowledgeable. Do yourself a favor and work with her.

Giselle - Consciousness Event Organizer

I was at a workshop that Dawn taught about limiting beliefs and the subconscious mind. 

I've been immersed in developing myself and follow Buddhist practices. 

I found the workshop to be very helpful for me!

What I was amazed by how Dawn had the ability to be deeply aware of each person and where they were during the process mentally and emotionally. She is a skilled listener. Dawn is very present and calm. Her interaction with each person was appropriate to where they were at. Her response to the accidental dropping of an object that startled everyone was extremely calming for all. These are rare qualities indeed. 


I highly recommend working with Dawn! 

​​Krish - Career Professional

I went to a workshop on the subconscious mind that Dawn facilitated. 

Dawn handed our worksheets and guided the group through doing the techniques to release limitations and reprogram the subconscious mind. 

I have done years of personal growth with some degree of success. One of my biggest challenges was around my professional career as an instrumentalist performing at concerts around the world. I never felt like a was good at it. This belief held me back from enjoying my career and keeping me from taking my skill to the next level. 

The next day I was performing at a concert. I am very happy to say I had a very successful and enjoyable concert! I will be working with Dawn in the future.

Marc - Professional Instrumentalist

I did a session with Dawn on weight loss struggles.


It's been very hard for many years to stop myself from overeating and eating junk food.


During the session, I experienced physical releases like laughing and yawning. I was feeling more and more relaxed. I felt safe with Dawn. I continued to feel calm after the session. Dawn asked me not to think about our session. This would help the subconscious mind release the mental and emotional causes of my weight problem.


As the days and weeks passed I continued to feel lighter and calmer. My habit of overeating and eating junk food faded away. I no longer was an emotional eater. I started losing weight and wanted to eat foods that were good for me. 

My life is better because of Dawn.

Sophia - Interior Designer

I worked with Dawn in a private one-on-one session as well as group training.

I had a lifelong fear of public speaking. This has been a real challenge because my job involves public speaking. I would be extremely nervous and anxious weeks before I was to speak. During the speech, I would be sweating heavily and so self-conscious. Everything time was a traumatic experience for me.  


I've tried everything. After on private session with Dawn, I now know where the fear came from and now I feel more relaxed about public speaking. It's not a traumatic experience for me anymore. Thank you, Dawn!

The group training created important shifts for myself and the other attendees. 

Dawn is very patient and supportive.
