Dianne A. Fanti, M.S., C.P.C.

Meet Dianne

Welcome! If you've come here seeking to help others build their essential life skills and resilience (while strengthening your own), you're in the right place! We have proven tools for families, professionals, and others serving communities.

Hi, I'm Dianne and I've been studying and teaching therapeutic techniques from the healing and expressive arts for 30 years. Over many years, I created The RESET Method, an educational approach that can dramatically improve people's feelings of well-being, relieving stress and challenging emotions, while strengthening resilience and building essential life skills.

While many people now consider me a Skill-building Specialist, I grew up knowing how it feels, to feel like you lacked some vital life skills, and I don't want anyone to feel like that! It's not necessary. So in my programs you'll find fun, creative, and engaging ways to build your own and your community's essential life skills and sense of well-being. I'm delighted that you're here and welcome to our Skill-building Society that we're co-creating!

To our success and well-being,

I have appreciated learning these new techniques and find that they enhance what I'm able to offer my clients."

"An Advanced Body of Knowledge"

"Dianne Fanti brings a depth of experience and an advanced body of knowledge to her teaching skills and the curriculum that she has created. Her use of guided meditations, breathing and centering techniques help to calm participants agitated minds and brings them closer towards a central brain balance. She has also uniquely integrated essential life skills within the expressive arts, in a format that's fun, engaging, clever, and wise.

   "Dianne has been instrumental in helping me discover my strengths and resetting priorities to be able to achieve a new path in life. During our conversations, she supports my spiritual path without judgment or bias. I am grateful that she challenges me with open ended questions to find how my past perceptions are holding me back. Then she gently holds me accountable for my actions. After speaking with Dianne, my life goals are now more in focus without the clouds of judgment or bias. It takes time to have focused conversations to aid in healthy decisions without the interference of the old ideas and support systems.

     Dianne continues to provide books, videos, breathing techniques, and meditation examples to re-emphasize our conversations. She's been an incredible support and cheerleader for me to make the tough decisions while moving forward in life. We all have our good days and bad, we celebrate both together. On the bad days, I am reminded by Dianne of how far I have come and on the good days we celebrate with cheer. Not only has Dianne become a life coach for me, she is a great advocate. It has been an honor to know Dianne during this time in my life, with her support, I feel much stronger and the possibilities seem endless. I am truly blessed having Dianne in my life."

~ Ann Rey, R.N.

An Update ~ As a coach, consultant, and mentor, the best gift we receive are referrals and updates about how those we've served continue to use the tools and learn to become unstoppable. Just the other day, I heard from Ann and she said, "See that, I'm using the tools and I don't let anything stop me anymore, I just keep moving forward!" It's an honor to accompany people on their life journey through life's twists and turns, to both familiar and unexpected, new places. Very often, we can all do so much more than we think can, when we have the right supports and tools. Our potential is waiting for us, and most of us are far more unlimited than we think we are!
