Hi, I’m Lori

I’m here to help you say “Yes” to yourself.

This is the single most important aspect of my life and work.

Why is this important to me?

For the first 35 years of my life I said “no” to myself. It started early.

I grew up in a single-parent household on welfare and food stamps, and inherited the archetypes of the victim and silent child right from the get-go. A pattern of abuse started early and continued through my early adult hood. The message that I heard over and over, is that I didn’t matter – what I felt didn’t matter, what I wanted didn’t matter, and what I needed did not matter. Life seemed to continually say “NO” to me, so “No” became my unconscious mantra.

In my late 20’s life got much better until I went through an abrupt and traumatic divorce. I hit a new bottom. I finally had enough at putting other people – especially authority figures and men – before me.

It took a long time but I finally got it: who I was and what I valued and what I wanted and what I needed did matter. I mattered – like more than anything or anybody else. That was quite a paradigm shift.

Speaker, Life Coach, Author - Lori DiGuardi

I sensed there was an honorable, truthful, and fulfilling way to live. I wanted that for me, and for my children. I was desperate for it.

Traditional and nontraditional therapies helped me see the negative patterns in my life but it was only when I learned how to honor my truth and intrinsic wisdom, that my life transformed.

Most importantly – after a lifetime of denying my anger, I allowed myself to feel it. I learned that anger is a powerful healing force – a force that can transform a woman’s life – in a liberating, truthful, and honorable way.

I finally learned how to say “Yes!” to myself.

I know too many women who are still being oppressed by others, and by themselves. And I know how to help them. This is my “why”.

Today I live my dream life.
