Coach Denise has facilitated groups of adults and children at schools, spiritual centers, UCLA programs, Whole Foods Martket, and parent groups to learn and practice mindfulness, a form of meditation.  Evidence shows that a mindfulness practice improves executive functions, which allow you to:  focus, problem solve, create, retain information, reflect, evaluate, initiate, plan and organize, manage, and multi-task.  It is also proven to reduce stress and improve wellness.

Change The Story...with Coach Denise Carlin, M.S.

"Denise is a very competent, creative, and personable coach and presenter.  Her ability to write curriculum and effectively coach both adults and children was very valuable to our programs (at UCLA)."  

       --  Mary Jane Rotheram-Borus, PhD, UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, 

            Director of the Global Center for Children and Families

​"Thank you so much for the great mindfulness sessions today (at Whole Foods Market).  I think that it went over really well and some of the staff asked me when we could have you back for more!"  

       --  Megan Ranegar, Marketing Supervisor, Whole Foods Market​​

Communication Workshops - for assertiveness, clarity, collaboration

Research shows that 60-80% of all difficulties in organizations stem from strained relationships between employees, not from deficits in individual employee's skill or motivation.   And training is the biggest driver for high-quality outcomes from conflict, in corporate, school, and family relations!

Rather than allow conflicts to continue to surface as personal attacks; arguments; absences from work, school, or activities; warring egos; stress; and diminished morale or esteem, provide your group with strategies that lead to resolutions and connection!   Coach Denise will share tools and methods that can help you to turn those costly, difficult moments into assets and next steps.  Whether she is coaching employees at Central Parking Systems, adults at St. Monica Catholic Community, families and pre-med students at UCLA programs, or children in Girl Scouts of America, Coach Denise connects with her audience and creates an enjoyable, memorable experience.
