Overcoming Adversity with Transformational Life Coaching

by Wendy Fachon

Certified DreamBuilder Coach Susan De Lorenzo helps people that are ready to move past adversity to secure a vision for the life they would love to live. The process for transformation begins with a dream—assessing where one is presently and determining where one wishes to be. De Lorenzo begins by asking people to envision what they would like their life to be three years from now. This first step helps people raise their energetic vibration.

The second step is identifying an individual’s energy blockages. Positive and negative thought patterns direct our life course and limit the ability to pursue dreams. By shifting thoughts toward success and away from doubt, fear and excuses, we become free to take inspired, accountable action that leads toward realizing personal goals. De Lorenzo explains, “By identifying and releasing what no longer serves, we can live in tribute to the greatness that was always there, just waiting to be expressed. My greatest joy is supporting and seeing this transformation take place in my clients.”

De Lorenzo’s own experiences with adversity led her to answer a deep calling to reach others with the message that a healthy, fulfilling life is attainable. She is a 16-year survivor of breast cancer, and moved beyond divorce and job loss to find her best self. She is passionate about sharing her experience of full recovery, gratitude and living life to the fullest, despite all the twists and turns. De Lorenzo guides clients to focus on four key areas: relationships, health, vocation and time/money freedom.

Life Design Coaching begins with a complimentary session. Finding out is the preliminary step. If the client and the coach feel they are a good fit, they determine how best to proceed, through one-on-one or group transformational life coaching. De Lorenzo also offers guidance through her blog and as an inspirational speaker. She has presented to local municipal and professional groups, hosting “vision driven” workshops to discover and create life purpose goals. “I love connecting with my audience and inspiring them to think differently in order to take positive action in their lives.”

Susan De Lorenzo was coached by world-class inspirational speaker and empowerment coach, Mary Morrissey, and earned her certification from the Life Mastery Institute, in California. To learn more about Life Design Coachin, call 508 736-8844 or visit
