Our Skills


Hope Rising Consulting


“I motivate and inspire women to walk into their purpose and transform their lives! I work with kind, wonderful, spiritual women that seek to make the necessary changes to bring light and life into the world around them!” – Daria

“As an Ashes to Gladness Consultant, I seek to Motivate. Inspire. Transform. lives! It is my desire, purpose, and goal to move you to live whole lives. My purpose stems from Isaiah 61:1-3, where the Lords asks that we “preach the good news to the poor, bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom, to comfort all who mourn, to bestow upon them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning.” – Daria

– My Clients Say –

I consider myself goal oriented and optimistic but sometimes you just need help sorting it all out. In 8wks we laid a solid foundation to build confidence and tackle a lot of things I'd been avoiding or never even considered. Plenty of times I felt like I was complaining but Coach Dee was sure to pinpoint the issue and offer a fix. She was also there between sessions to check on me when I was simply out of line! I came lost, overwhelmed and in fear yet I move forward with a clear mind and solid guide to accomplish my dreams. I still fight myself everyday but I have the tools to cope and get out my own way. I recommend Coach Dee if you’re looking for clarity in any area; career, personal fulfillment or complete life overhaul. She has given me a fool proof path in moving forward. - Nichole Boone, Wylde Expressions
