Mindful self-compassion
Career Wellness Coach/Facilitator to Academics

Once a work-addicted, anxious, and overwhelmed professor, Danielle De La Mare became sick and confronting the harsh reality that she had built a life that felt absolutely terrible. Illness taught her a lot. She eventually learned to carve out ample space for family and began building a new career that nourished her.

Today, as a career wellness coach, Danielle helps academics make sound and meaningful career decisions grounded in wellness and self-compassion. Such decisions produce careers of greater creativity, confidence, clarity, and connection to self and others.

Danielle is also the creator of the podcast, Self-Compassionate Professor, where she features guests who have paved creative and self-compassionate career paths after struggle.
