Excited to Introduce Empath Studio!
Hello, it’s me, Diana Zilly, MA, MS, LCPC, CH. That’s a lot of letters after my last name! And it’s because of all those letters that I’m launching Empath Studio, a new trauma-informed, holistic life coaching platform that will help people to create sustainable personal growth. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time, and it has taken me some deep-dive personal and professional reflection to develop the type of approach I want to have in my life coaching programs.
Wanting a Breath of Fresh Air!
I’ve spent almost 20 years in the field of psychology and mental health. Before the pandemic, when I had an office, I used to do some hypnotherapy, mindfulness, and meditation techniques with my clients. We had fun and it was relaxing and interesting for me, and for my client. I loved doing that, and I miss it. I also miss teaching classes. Of course, I love teaching my clients in their therapy sessions. But, there’s so much more that I want to teach that I can’t cover in a therapy session. However, I used to teach entire semesters of psychology classes for a several years in the community college setting. It’s time for me to create my own teaching environment that’s more fun and doesn’t involve grading papers or giving tests!!!!
What’s Different About My Approach
I’m offering classes and groups that teach women how to create sustainable personal development so that they can overcome issues such as procrastination, emotional eating, impostor syndrome, and so much more. The things that make my programs different from other life coaching programs is that I am teaching from a special blend of insider knowledge from my experience in psychology and mental health plus my background in yoga, martial arts, meditation, hypnotherapy, EFT tapping, meditation, mindfulness, and mindset techniques. PLUS you are provided with a learning experience that is based in adult learning theories where I teach you how to create your own personal learning portfolio. Don’t freak out if that sounds heavy or intimidating to you. It’s actually going to be just right for you because that’s the goal of everything I teach: make it relevant and customizable to your own life.
How You’ll Benefit
A Safe Space for Women
My heart is in helping women to restore themselves to wholeness and realize their full sense of self in a world that can otherwise be very invalidating, unsafe, and traumatic on many levels. Although there are some classes open to all adults, there will be some classes and groups designed only for women in order to create a safe, specialized learning environment. I really do mean all women as this is an inclusive safe space. When I did my research study back in 2004-2005, I focused on studying the development of personal resilience in single mothers. It’s my calling to share what I learned in my research study and what I continued to learn over many years as a therapist. I feel compelled to share this work in my coaching programs.
I believe in serving my students. It’s important to me that my students are able to contact me with any questions, problems, feedback, etc. One of the most important criteria in my search for a dependable online learning platform was the built-in ability for students to contact me within the platform itself. As my student, you will not only benefit from my experience as an educator in the academic sense but also in the administrative sense.
- scheduled live office hours online
- Q&A forum
- customer service in the portal
- ability to contact me directly
- no red tape
Learning That’s Accessible
As an educator, I understand how to deliver learning materials in ways that are meaningful to my students. I am also very open to re-teaching a lesson if a student needs additional help. I love teaching people who are eager to learn. This is not a one-size-fits-all program but a starting point where I build out a program in response to my students’ needs as I give them a voice in their learning process.
- video lessons
- written instructions
- personal learning portfolio development (I will help you!)
- Q&A where you can ask questions and get answers
- additional material to support your learning
- my dedicated involvement to your learning process

This is just the beginning! I am putting my energy into building more programs with Empath Studio. I’m excited that you’re here.
