About Doro

I've been a certified professional life coach for over 20 years, bringing mindfulness into my clients’ challenges in every aspect of life. I've been practicing meditation since 1967, and continue to explore multiple Eastern and contemporary paths, teachers, and oracles; including the new sciences of quantum entanglement and string theories.

My personal teachers have included Ram Dass, Muktananda, Stephen Levine and others. I'm formally trained in a number of meditation/mindfulness practices, and have attended dozens of long silent retreats at the Bhavana Buddhist Monastery and the Lama Foundation. I've been a student of author and head abbot monk, Bhante Gunaratana, since 1979.

Originally from New York, I settled in Virginia in 1990 after living in France for 10 years.

Prior to becoming a coach, I was a therapist with many years of experience in pediatric, family and geriatric rehabilitation and psychiatric support.

I began coaching globally over the phone in 2000 as a Certified Graduate of Coach University and a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation.

Throughout my counseling and coaching career I have had the pleasure of supporting thousands of people in a multitude of life circumstances and challenging transitionsm,through mindfulness.

General Background.
I was born in New York in 1954 and graduated from the State University of New Paltz, New York in 1981.

In 1998 I began studies at Coach University; graduating in 2001. I was certified through the International Coach Federation as a Professional Certified Coach.

In 2004 I completed the Advanced Teacher Training program at the Bhavana Buddhist Monastery in High View, WV for advanced meditators.

A New York native, I also lived in France for 10 years while married and raising three children. I now have four grandchildren (so far) and live in the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with my garden, my animals and my amazing nearby community of friends and family

"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind and trouble will follow you as the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.

Speak and act with a pure mind and happiness will follow you as your shadow; unshakable."
