About The "2.0" Programs

client testimonials


    Athletes, actors, super successful people, and probably some of your happiest friends use life coaches to untangle their emotions, figure out what they want and get it. And you can, too!

   People trust Deidra. She's smart, intuitive, and patient. She can be just as soft-spoken and supportive as she is fiery and firm.  And she makes every client feel like she's all theirs.

   Sessions are intense and they can be scheduled when it's best for you -- on your way to work, Saturday mornings when you're rested and clear, or Sunday nights when you need to get charged up. Your sessions will dig deep, uncover obstacles; you sound feedback; create a gameplan, and grow your confidence along the way. 


   Clients enjoy working with Deidra for her ability to be intuitive, wise and easy to talk to and always encouraging. 

   With Deidra you will:

    - be heard, & respected

    - learn new skills to use over again

    - gain a new way of viewing your life

    - develop confidence in your abilities

    - get clear about what you want

    - create achievable goals and plans

Deidra Parrish Williams
leading a 3-part
ME2.0 workshop

It's important for your lifecoach to understand

self-doubt, and it's even better when she has overcome it. Despite being a lifelong writer with dozens of bylines in places like Inc, Fast Company, Essence, Newsday, and Marie Claire, it wasn't until Deidra conquered her doubt, made an action plan and developed an accountability team that she accomplished a long-time goal of publishing the novel she'd been writing for over 10 years. That's one of many things that make her a compassionate coach.

(The Current's Whisper is a twisty, provocative story that's earned consistentely strong reader reviews. It's available here and on all bok platfoms.)

The buzz on life coaching

Learn the KEY to Happy

Learn the KEY to Happy

You'll never regret making an investment in your own success. Lose the weight. Start that business. Or find your happily ever after.  Move from "okay" to feeling focused and fulfilled with support from your own personal life coach. Once considered a luxury just for high-paid executives, life coaching is  a proven approach now used by everyday people from all walks of life.

People use life coaches when they feel stuck, confused, stagnant, unmotivated or alone. Think of it like having an incredible friend who listens, encourages, and supports you in figuring out your next move in life. A friend who is skilled at helping you zero in on your passions, developing attainable goals and concrete plans for attaining them. A friend who helps you clear any obstacles standing in the way. And most important, someone who keeps you encouraged and accountable at every step.   

Deidra provides 4 coaching options:

  1. A traditional one-on-one relationship for a little or long as you need.

  2. A concentrated short-term contract in the YOU2.0 program

  3. A full-day couples workshop, LOVE2.0

  4. Group workshops for teens or women, ME2.0
