Uniquely Focused

With original programs for helping professionals & families

Dianne A. Fanti, M.S., C.P.C.

Meet Dianne

Welcome! If you've come here seeking to help others build their essential life skills and resilience (while strengthening your own), you're in the right place! We have proven tools for families, professionals, and others serving communities.

Hi, I'm Dianne and I've been studying and teaching therapeutic techniques from the healing and expressive arts for 30 years. Over many years, I created an educational approach that can dramatically improve people's feelings of well-being, relieving stress and challenging emotions, while strengthening resilience and building essential life skills.

What's unique about my work is that I work with both mental health/helping professionals and also directly with families. My educational program RESET for Wellness is approved by the Natl. Assoc. of Social Work and the MD State Dept. of Education and I have trained the staff at Baltimore Crisis Response, Inc. and school psychologists at Mergenthaler High School, Baltimore's largest high school, in my unique skill-building approach.

While many people now consider me a Skill-building Specialist, I grew up knowing how it feels, to feel like you lacked some vital life skills, and I don't want anyone to feel like that! It's not necessary. So in my programs you'll find fun, creative, and engaging ways to build your own and your community's essential life skills and sense of well-being. I'm delighted that you're here and welcome to the Skill-building Society that we're cultivating!

To your success and well-being,

I have appreciated learning these new techniques and find that they enhance what I'm able to offer my clients."

"Dianne Fanti brings a depth of experience and an advanced body of knowledge to her teaching skills and the curriculum that she has created. Her use of guided meditations, breathing and centering techniques help to calm participants agitated minds and brings them closer towards a central brain balance. She has also uniquely integrated essential life skills within the expressive arts, in a format that's fun, engaging, clever, and wise.

"This was the most fun my client’s had in a session! She & her Mom were really engaged. We made a chart she can use during the week to go along with the activities the game provided for her. The game gave a tangible method for addressing behavior ~ and all goals are measurable! I just love that and I’m excited to be using it in my practice!”

~ Grace Olivieri, LGSW

This is a creative way to help you cultivate win-win's with the young people in your life!

Success can be cultivated

"Shores of Success is a practical, fun, and interesting way to teach your child or any child you care about the rewards of being responsible and caring for others. Children are naturally helpful and generous but may need reminders and incentives to practice on a regular basis. Caregivers model good communication and problem-solving skills which is an additional bonus of this well-crafted, interactive game." ~ Dr. Paula Schmidt, Ph.D., Educational Psychologist 

"I really like this game and have been using it with my grandson Mickel. We figure out what reward he wants and keep a notebook, so he can see his progress. He loves feeling like he can earn the things he wants, rather than waiting on the adults to simply give him things. He really loves being helpful, and you can see it boosts his self-esteem when he helps others out. I love seeing him thinking of others and thinking about the consequences of his choices, actually thinking things through, knowing that he's building his critical thinking skills for the future. And I love that there are extra tools that help when anyone gets stuck, like the ones that help build understanding and strengthen communication. I'm looking forward to bringing this game with me to his school when I start teaching there next month, I want to see how we can include it there." ~ Amelie Hamilton

   "Dianne has been instrumental in helping me discover my strengths and resetting priorities to be able to achieve a new path in life. During our conversations, she supports my spiritual path without judgment or bias. I am grateful that she challenges me with open ended questions to find how my past perceptions are holding me back. Then she gently holds me accountable for my actions. After speaking with Dianne, my life goals are now more in focus without the clouds of judgment or bias. It takes time to have focused conversations to aid in healthy decisions without the interference of the old ideas and support systems.

     Dianne continues to provide books, videos, breathing techniques, and meditation examples to re-emphasize our conversations. She's been an incredible support and cheerleader for me to make the tough decisions while moving forward in life. We all have our good days and bad, we celebrate both together. On the bad days, I am reminded by Dianne of how far I have come and on the good days we celebrate with cheer. Not only has Dianne become a life coach for me, she is a great advocate. It has been an honor to know Dianne during this time in my life, with her support, I feel much stronger and the possibilities seem endless. I am truly blessed having Dianne in my life."

~ Ann C., Registered Nurse in Maryland

An Update ~ Like Ann, who's been actively working on and actually living out her major life goals, rather than wondering if they'll happen. She's now living on a large farm, which has been one of her dreams! And she's got a more advanced role with a much higher-paying position in her field. You too can learn to become unstoppable and be well on your way to achieving your life's goals and dreams! You can get on a faster track to achieving them. I have been helping people overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and achieve improbable goals and dreams for over 30 years.
