Deena Kolbert

I thrive on giving value and service to clients so they have specific tools and skills to develop, inspire and sustain greatness in their leadership communication and relationships through re-connecting to their hearts…thus to families, organizations, and communities. I offer everyone the opportunity to be seen, heard, and listened to and provide every individual with the chance to embrace a renewed vision that can lead to a more fulfilling life. As an international coach, I have a proven track record of my clients reaching an increased sense of self-worth and value.


Clients’ testimonies say that they experience changes that allow them to achieve higher performance as leaders, increase healthy boundaries and learn to balance both their personal and/or professional life. Clients state that they receive more abundance, feel fulfilled with real connections and offer service to others while receiving a deeper contentment within. Clients are inspired to take committed, bold, accountable actions that overcome their fears and self-limiting beliefs.


I use a customized, integrated coaching approach drawn from several sources: I am a Certified Mentor Coach and hold a Professional Co-Active Coach (PCC) accreditation from the International Coach Federation (ICF). I am a Certified Coach in Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSCC) and a Life Coach who is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) from The Coaches Training Institute (CTI).  I am a trained Authorized Team Diagnostic Assessment Facilitator for Team Coaching International. I received a Certificate from New York University in Non-profit Management. Additionally, I have a Certificate from the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) in Train-the-Trainer. I hold an End-of-Life Doula Certificate, Sacred Dying Plan from The New York Open Center. I have a Private School Director’s License from The University of the State of New York, Education Department. I’ve worked on city, state, regional, national, federal and international levels. I also hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech Pathology, American Speech & Hearing Association (ASHA), have studied fine arts for many years at the School of Visual Arts, NY and hold a B.S. degree in Speech Pathology & Audiology and Elementary Education, State University of New York, College at Geneseo.


This is what I’ve learned: Within us all there is the possibility to change our mindset and transform our lives for true leadership and relationship—connection is made through touching people’s hearts and that is what I coach my clients to do. The world is in turmoil, and stresses surround us. My clients are seizing the opportunities, finding real meaning in the midst of chaos and fulfilling their goals and potential.
