Hi I'm Dan,

For the past 12 years I have been working in education helping to sculpt the minds of today's youth and future leaders of America. I began my journey after graduating with my B.A. in Special Education from William Paterson University.

After teaching for a few years, I decided to get my Masters Degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University. I have a very positive philosophy towards life and I make it a daily effort to become a better person mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually than I was the day before. Over the past five years, I have made it a life goal to share my positive attitude and to help others release their full potential by motivational speaking and coaching.

I am extremely excited to work with my clients and I hope to change the world one life at a time. I believe that everyone is equipped with the ability to become the best version of themselves, my job is to help you find the tools and teach you how to use them effectively.

Samantha Ariza, Coach Mentor

Samantha Ariza

Hello everyone!! My name is Samantha Ariza.

I am a teacher turned counselor who has always been dedicated to helping people. It all started in high school when I volunteered for my churches youth program.

From there, I went to William Paterson University and earned my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I worked in public as well as private schools for the next 7 years. During that time, I realized that I wanted to help students in a different ways because I would spend a lot of my prep time talking to students instead of grading papers.

I decided to go to school to get my Masters degree in counseling. I look forward to helping others while being a part of Coach Mentors and putting my passion for others to good use.

Cameron Calaverne

Hi I’m Cameron,
I began my work in human services as an emergency medical technician. I enjoyed being responsible for helping those in need, and this line of work led me to transition into the mental health field. Over the years I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with diverse client populations facing a vast array of roadblocks in life.

Working in an inpatient psychiatric hospital providing direct client care as a mental health technician inspired me to obtain my degree in psychology. I then gained experience providing crisis counseling and insight to clients ranging from ages 5 to 95. It was an exciting experience as you never knew who you were going to see next, nor did you know what kind of problem you were going to help them overcome. My most recent experience has been working with at risk youth, and their family, in a prevention setting by providing person-centered counseling at their home or in the community.

My experience has led me to be a big believer in “the biggest obstacle in life is ourselves”. I believe, for the vast majority of us, that only you can limit your achievements as we all have the free will to make choices which shape our future. I also believe that education will only take you so far as it is real-life experience which builds wisdom and character. The abilities to overcome an obstacle in life are inside all of us, sometimes it just takes some insight from others to help you find it.

Chari-Lynn Koppel

Chari-Lynn Koppel

My name is Chari-Lynn Koppel and empowering people is my passion. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than helping people to make paradigm shifts to attain the lives they want. I have successfully coached several hundreds of people from all walks of life – from middle school to PhDs, from the impoverished to the wealthy as well as people from many different cultures, disabilities, ethnicities, religious and non-religious beliefs and countries around the world.

For the past nearly two years now I have worked as a Life Coach in a variety of settings.  I have helped people struggling with relationship problems, stress, anxiety, spousal and family disputes, school issues, work issues, career choices, depression, bipolar, goal setting and life planning and more.

I believe it doesn’t matter who you are, where you have been or what you have done. Living in the past will prevent you from moving forward. If you only look in the rearview mirror, you’ll never see where you are going.  You can’t change the past but you can always do something today to make life better for yourself and/or someone else.

So when things look hopeless, when there seems like there is no solution in site, when you are just about to give up, the message is clear: Don't. Every problem that you have ever encountered has happened before to another person. The facts, the characters and the places may differ but the patterns and the core problems that have been experienced are the same. Rest assured knowing that with some creativity and a whole lot of tenacity someone figured out a way to successfully overcome the same challenge or difficulty you are facing. You can, too.

Let’s figure this out together.
