Are You Ready to Feel Confident, Assured, and Empowered?
Meet Diana Sturm, Confidence Coach, EFT Practitioner, and Licensed Professional Counselor
You admire people with confidence who can say “yes” with enthusiasm just as easily as they can say “no” with firm boundaries. You want to learn the tools so you can be like them.
You are in the right place.
Hello, I’m Diana Sturm, and my mission is to assist those who are eager to improve themselves and become the best versions of who they can be. Together, we’ll explore the power of confidence that can positively impact various aspects of your life, helping you overcome feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt.
Imagine the liberation of breaking free from self-doubt and imposter syndrome, gaining the confidence to express yourself without hesitation. Confidence can truly make a difference in personal relationships, career choices, and goal-setting for your life journey.
During my life, I’ve grappled with doubts and the desire to blend into the background in many situations. My journey began during elementary school, where I experienced intermittent bullying from classmates. There was a group at my school that struck fear into everyone, as they had physically hurt several kids. At the age of 12, I was bullied by someone I considered a friend, and this painful encounter left me feeling crushed and disheartened. As a result, I became withdrawn and shy, detesting any form of public speaking, particularly the dreaded class presentations.
As I entered college, I managed fine in small groups or one-on-one settings with friends, but larger gatherings made me exceedingly uncomfortable. Public speaking remained an unattainable feat. The lack of confidence significantly impacted my job interviews, hindering my progress in creating a successful career in management.
Over time, I discovered the realm of personal development and positive affirmations, which brought some relief. Nevertheless, I still couldn’t fully release the grip of my fears. Eventually, I secured a retail management position, which required me to train a small team of eight. Slowly but steadily, I started to find comfort in speaking before them, and this led to more opportunities for public speaking.
However, the true turning point came when I stumbled upon the emotional freedom technique. This powerful tool became the key to unlocking my fear of public speaking and dismantling numerous other limiting beliefs that had held me back for so long.
As I embraced this transformative technique, my life began to change profoundly. I found myself shedding the shackles of doubt and stepping into a newfound confidence. The fear that had once confined me no longer held sway, empowering me to embrace public speaking and explore new possibilities – including helping others with their fears and limiting beliefs.
My expertise lies in guiding and supporting adults, providing a comforting hand to help you on your path to empowerment and success. It’s essential to note that this is not therapy, and my focus isn’t on delving into your past or providing diagnoses. Instead, I aim to create a safe and nurturing environment where you can grow and flourish, free from insurance-related constraints.
Together, we’ll uncover and enhance your existing strengths, and I’ll gladly help you discover hidden natural skills and traits. By fortifying these invaluable qualities, we can boost your confidence and propel you confidently towards your dreams.
If you’re ready to embrace your potential and embark on a journey of self-discovery, I’m here to support you at every step. This is your time to shine, and I’m honored to accompany you on this transformative expedition. Take a leap of faith, and together, let’s set sail on this beautiful voyage towards a better you.
I am dedicated to helping people improve their lives.

- M.S. Earth Sciences: Specialty in Sedimentology
- Ph.D. Geology: Specialty in Hydrogeology & Geophysics. I’ve worked for an environmental organization, was part of a group that formed a national park in a developing country, and I also taught at the university level for 12 years.

I love all of these different topics. I now have a private practice counseling business (Welcome Life Counseling) for people in Alabama and Florida and I provide coaching services. These varied interests are typical of polymaths/scanners/multipotentialites. I encourage everyone to follow their interests and live their life fully. Your interests might be hobbies or they may be career paths. Coaching can help explore your potential.
