Life Coach Susan Dufault

Susan Dufault, ULLC


Through the course of the last 30 years, as a result of her own studies, her corporate career in Human Resources and profound mentoring from other gifted coaches, Susan DuFault, SPHR/SHRM-SCP, ULLC, has developed a model for coaching and mentoring that incorporates principles from the Twelve Step model and the teachings of A Course In Miracles. She has been a member of Phoenix Loving Groups Community for over five years and has been hosting groups as well as loving and supporting group members formally for four years. Susan first began her journey into healing in 1980. A survivor of a traumatic childhood, she found herself seeking peace, clarity and safety. Before long, she was naturally helping others in their healing journeys. Susan specializes in encouraging self-discovery and healing for those interested in breaking free from the past as well as those working through grief or transition. Believing our feelings provide insight to belief threads to be evaluated, then retained or discarded, based on their level of service to us, she provides a path for clients to unravel belief systems, replacing old lies with clarity. Following a very loving end to a 25 year marriage and a period of time for healing and reflection, Susan has been able to create a beautiful, loving marriage with her new partner. Through this experience, she developed a natural passion for encouraging couples in learning to love unconditionally and to create a Holy Relationship. She also excels at providing guidance and education to those suffering from mental illness.

Services available include one to one coaching, couples coaching, group presentations and custom designed courses. Additionally, Susan offers corporate coaching services, for individuals, executive teams, or frontline staff.

Davina Mar, ULLC

Our First Graduate 

As a certified Unconditional Loving Life Coach and the Leader of Kona Loving Groups, I am honored to offer individuals and families support in moving through past trauma and recent upsets in a safe place. I believe we are more than any struggles or hardships we have experienced in life and that all conditions can be healed.  For the past 30 years I have been a Spiritual Practitioner and have practiced and taught the Universal Principles of Unconditional Love, as well as Non-Violent Communication, and am familiar with the 12-step program.  Assisting people in achieving their heart's desire to experience greater health, happier relationships, enjoy wealth, and express creatively brings me great joy.  I am blessed to live on the island of Hawaii, learning and practicing Aloha, which is more than just hello and good-bye.       It means "to be happy with" and mutual regard & affection with no obligation in return.  Aloha is the essence of relationships where each person is important for collective existence.  Aloha is Unconditional Love!

If you're ready to heal old wounds and change fearful thoughts to ones of faith, I can help you navigate through sadness, anger, jealousy, etc. and take steps toward forgiveness and genuine happiness.  It's my honor and pleasure to practice and teach universal principles, sing, pray, and have opportunities to be a  loving presence.  I am available for private sessions, classes, workshops, and interventions.  Call today for a free half hour consultation or to schedule a 2-hour Initial Consult for $75.   www.davinamar.com  808-938-8452.

Coaches from Phoenix

Nora Katafiasz,  CHLC

Nora has been on a long journey looking to heal herself and her family. A proud mother of three adult children, she has been with her partner for over 28 years. Their journey found its vehicle to healing through Loving Groups. Learning about unconditional love and healing their childhood wounds has increased the peace and happiness in their home.

As a child in a family of 10, Nora learned early on that love was conditional and filled with abuse, both emotional and physical. Her longing to fill the hole left by such an upbringing, led her on a spiritual journey across the country from Ohio where she grew up, to Arizona. Here, she found what she needed - love, unconditional love.

Nora has undergone extensive coaching, and has hosted groups, book studies, and social gatherings in her home for nearly three years. She serves the Loving Groups community as the Administrator and as Secretary on the Board of Directors. Nora has developed a natural way of sharing the gift of unconditional love with others. Her wish for each person she encounters is to feel truly loved and accepted, so they can share their authentic selves with the world.

She is training to be a facilitator of Safe Conversations® and has led Couplehood® programs in her home for the past year. Nora is passionate about working with couples and individuals who are looking to heal their lives and relationships through connection with themselves and others.

With a Bachelor’s Degree in Business, and experience as a massage therapist, Nora’s love for learning has only grown stronger as she finds herself exploring many different approaches and modalities. With the understanding and practice of unconditional love principles, Nora has come to know herself and others more deeply, with keen ability to identify and navigate triggers more quickly. Other tools she utilizes include: the Grief Recovery® process, Byron Katie’s “The Work”, and principles of Real Love. Through Safe Conversations® and Saying What’s Real, Nora has learned how to decrease ruptures in communicating and create connection instead.

Services Nora offers include: Couples coaching, one-to-one coaching, Safe Conversations education, Couplehood programs and more. Contact her today for a free initial phone assessment at 480-390-6202.  Scottsdale, AZ

Jim Clarke, CHLC 

is a Group Host and Life Coach in the teaching, practice and application of the life-improving principles of Unconditional Love. Jim spent much of his adult life as a television meteorologist, seemingly living the American Dream, but the tension and anxiety of his personal life was growing out of control. In the span of 5 years, he manifested two failed marriages and the loss of almost all his worldly possessions.  For several years, he blamed his wives and the world, and was miserable. Finally, he realized that the one common denominator in all his relationships was himself, and began looking for answers.  He found those answers quite by accident when he attended an event with Sharon Winningham as a guest speaker. Sharon is the Community Leader of the Loving-Groups of Arizona. Sharon told her story of failed relationships and desperate situations, until she discovered the principles of unconditional love, that turned her life from a downward spiral to an upwards one. Jim was so intrigued by the practical application and healing power of unconditional love, that he began studying everything he could about it. In 2014, Jim moved from the Midwest to Phoenix, Arizona, to learn from and participate in the Loving-Groups, where he has trained to be a group host and a Life Coach in the practice of unconditional love. The principles of unconditional love are ancient, but rarely have the principles been available in such a simple, applicable and life-healing way. Jim is dedicated to bringing more of the life-saving practices of unconditional love and Loving-Groups to individuals and communities around the globe, and particularly to his home town of St. Louis, Missouri.

Suzanne Ecker, ULLC


You know, we all are on the journey of opening the Heart.  Yes, all of us.  Whether you know it or not.  All of us have been hurt in some ways, some more than others, and it has caused us to shut down our hearts, and thus, our ability to give and receive love.  From human beings, and from the Divine.  To the point where some of us don’t even believe in the Divine (or whatever you choose to call it), and that’s OK!  But in the end, we want Love.  We want to give love.  We want to feel loved.  It is human.  And it is Divine.   

As humans, we can learn to trust again, to be vulnerable, and to be seen and accepted for who we are, so we can begin to open to loving one another.  We can learn to have relationships that are not only functional, but loving!  Wow!  And, a by-product of this can be opening to Divine Love.  Divine Love can facilitate this, or can be a result of this.  Either way.  Who cares? Love wants to serve us.  Any way it can.  So that we can serve others with an open heart.  This is our path.   

I facilitate the flow of human love by helping people identify their unproductive behaviors that preclude them from feeling loved unconditionally, and from being able to offer unconditional love.  Behaviors that keep people stuck in unhealthy relationships.  Behaviors that cause us so much pain.  I help you see a way put of your pain.  I help you identify your pain.  And move through it.  And out of it.

I facilitate Divine Love by offering blessings and helping you recognize that Divine Light that is already inside of you.  You don’t have to go find it!  I can help you open your Heart!  Yes I can!  Who doesn’t want that?  What a relief, to finally trust enough to let Love flow through you! 

In 2011, I began studying Real Love principals set forth by Dr. Greg Baer, in what is now the Loving-Groups community, led by Sharon Winningham, in Phoenix.  It was here that I learned to unlearn many of my own unproductive behaviors that were keeping me stuck in pain and victimhood.  My involvement in the Loving-Groups community is as a group host and a personal coach. 

Because I have been on a spiritual path since 1990, I am able to assist you, not only on your “earth” journey, but on your soul's journey (and, yes, we all have a soul journey).  I have studied and done spiritual practices for many years, and currently study soul wisdom with Master Zhi Gang Sha.  I am a Tao Hands practitioner and can offer blessings as appropriate to help remove spiritual blockages.  I have opened my spiritual channels and have access to Divine wisdom. 

Clients often feel more peaceful and have more clarity after sessions with me.  I am eager to help you if you are ready.  I would be honored to be a part of your healing journey.

ULLC Unconditional Loving Life Coach

Sharon Winningham, ULLC


Why Us?

We have committed our lives to helping others.  

For many people, the key missing ingredient to their lives is the simple experience of unconditional love. Beyond our material possessions, families, relationships, and careers, each of us quietly seeks the feeling and embodiment of love.

As we move about in our daily routines, faced with ever-increasing issues of stress and challenge, fear and doubt, a soft inner voice is speaking to us. This is the voice of deeper truth and reason.

There is another way, another path. It is a path paved with the conscious use of love. It is going beyond personal love into the realm of unconditional love. It is the recognition that all life deserves love regardless of its appearance or actions. All life is sacred despite any illusion to the contrary.

It is with this recognition that we can affect amazing change in our lives, both personal and global. In fact, right this moment you are affecting life just by your current attitudes, perspectives, thoughts, and feelings. What if you decided to view life with love?

Let's make love a choice and let's make it popular by our word, deed and action. Begin with yourself by loving yourself and then share it with everyone and everything around you. Sound simple? It is.

Love requires no special talent, skill or knowledge. It is held within each of us every moment. We need only realize it is ever present and available to invoke its gift. When we choose love, we receive and share in the beauty of life itself. Sometimes we just need a little help from our friends to get there.
