Ariana’s Coaching Hours



“Ariana has a great perception of situations, even when it is not completely clear for me. She listens carefully to what I say and what we discuss in the Coaching sessions and she leads me to great conclusions and discoveries. She asks clever questions, offers tools and methods and inspires me to move forward. The sum of the conclusions and discoveries brings me clarity about what should be the next steps, actions, movements, and behaviors. And, Ariana has helped me discover who I am.  She has also helped me prepare for interviews. Ariana does a great job. The significance of her work is infinite to me.” – F.S., Sales Manager

“…My relationship with Ariana is based on trust and I know that I won’t be judged for my weakness. She encourages me to look for options around and choose the right moment to develop each one. Being coached by Ariana, who is a high-performance coach, taught me that I can do whatever I want. I am very glad to have met her at this time in my life.” – Karina M.S., CSR, Halifax, NS

“I had been a manager of people for a little more than 2 years when I came to a crisis point. I had lost my confidence that it was a role I could excel at or even if it was a role I was suited for. Methodically and with great compassion, Ariana guided me through my confidence of faith by providing me with assessments to work through and tools to apply which allowed me to reframe many of my doubts. With Ariana’s guidance, I was able to gain insight into my own strengths and values. Using the skills she coached me on, I gained confidence and I’d like to think competence, in my role. My inner talk track, communication style, and coaching philosophy have evolved and improved through the thoughtful and insightful coaching that I received working with Ariana.”  Victoria McLeod, Medical Device Training Leader

“Before looking into a career coach, I felt lost and in need of a career change but did not know how to go about it. A friend recommended me to Donna Schilder. Once I contacted her I was immediately connected with a coach Donna felt was a good match for me, that coach being Ariana. Ariana gave me the tools and the confidence to know where my future begins and helped me step out of my comfort zone. I was enlightened through her guided expertise as she coached me through my path. I am grateful for this experience and I know this group will always be here for me if I ever need career advice along my journey.” Carmen Nino, Data Control Specialist, Palomar Products


“Interview preparation with Ariana was very helpful.  It helped me see where I need to practice and what I need to focus on.” – G.S., Engineer

 “Ariana a “big picture” approach to job search.  She has helped me come up with new approaches to difficult issues I’ve run into.”—  J.N., Business Analyst


“I sought out coaching during a period in my professional life where I was not sure if I was in a position I was able or willing to excel at.  Arianna’s thoughtful questions, the inventories, and the reframing of my mindset helped me to turn the corner and confidently step up into my role.” — V.M, Training Manager
“When I began my coaching sessions, I had no idea what to expect.  I have been in supervisory and management roles for many years and had never had the opportunity to work with a coach. So, I began with an open mind and an open heart. I was having some very trying challenges in my current position with my team and I was utilizing all of the tools in my toolbox from prior lives.
My coach was supportive and she helped me to see situations from different perspectives.  She provided me with additional tools that helped me to work through the obstacles. I will never be finished with my life learning plan but I feel as if having my coach expanded my ability to approach bumps in the road from new directions.

Thank you Ariana for all of your guidance and support!  I can only hope that others will take the opportunity to open themselves up to the possibilities of what having a coach can mean to them!” — S.D., VP, Operations
