Clinical Psychologist, Executive Coach, and Organizational Consultant
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is Dana Gionta, a clinical psychologist, executive coach and organizational consultant. She is the author of her book titled From Stressed to Centered: A Practical Guide to a Healthier and Happier You. She also just launched a new brand podcast called Living a Vibrant and Fulfilling Life.

“Many times clients are not even aware what boundaries are, and these emotions [of resentment] are really good cues that boundaries need to be set. I educate about what boundaries are, how they work, how does one set them, and give examples. We do role playing with the client once they have a sense of how they can communicate these boundaries with the person. Many times they don’t really know what to say to set the boundaries, so we’ll talk about different ways one can assertively communicate.”
