Friendship Inventory

Experiencing more joy in your friendships starts with taking inventory of what's really going on...

Wait, what's a friendship inventory?

Research* finds that women are more likely than men to ruminate (think deeply about the same issue over and over), and that rumination can often immobilize us from taking action. Mental health researchers believe that this might be why women report more anxiety and depression than men.


Friendships are a major area of rumination, as women often find themselves frequently thinking about how to experience more satisfaction in these relationships.


But where do they start? How can they begin to get clear about who to prioritize about what needs to change in order to experience more joy in their friendship landscape?

This workshop is 
for you if…

You're curious about how to prioritize your existing friendships and social calendar, but don't really know where to start 

You're in a life transition (birthday, new city, new lifestyle, romantic breakup), and need to evaluate your social circle

You acknowledge that there are certain personal habits, beliefs, and patterns that you could improve to increase your friendship satisfaction, but... you don't know what they are

​You believe it's possible to be more satisfied in your platonic relationships, but have zero direction for how to begin

You've never intentionally and technically assessed your friendship landscape before because you used to believe that everything should unfold "naturally", but now you see how you might benefit from doing an inventory

Meet Danielle

"When I was a high school teacher, my students cried to me between classes about their friend issues. Then as a publicist, my high-achieving clients privately confessed their struggles to cultivate deep friendships in adulthood.

That’s when it hit me:

At every stage of womanhood, we’re trying to figure out how to navigate our platonic relationships with other women.

So I began to leverage my background as an educator to study what the latest research has to say about women’s cooperation, communication, and conflict. And now I share those insights to help you (and me!) create and maintain healthier friendships.

I have been hired by the NFL, NBA, TikTok, Etsy and Bumble to share the science of women's connection. Celebrities trust me with their most personal friendship issues and both schools and businesses have brought me onboard to consult about ways to friendship as a wellness imperative.

And I am so honored, every day, to be able to wake up and do such meaningful work."



This workshop is not for you if you are looking for a complete overhaul of your friendships. This workshop helps women gain clarity on where to begin focusing their attention and what changes need to be made to experience more joy.

For those looking for the "how's", this Fall, Friend Forward is offering its final cohort for the Friendship Elevated group coaching program to extensively explore and improve women's five domains of friendship:

  • mindset

  • connection

  • momentum

  • conflict

  • renewal

Friendship Elevated is an intense, more long-term experience (16-weeks), and doors open in August 2024. This inventory is a prerequisite to that experience.


This workshop experience is $49. Aside from Danielle's podcast (free) and book (~$30), this is the most affordable offering she has available, as the intensive Friendship Elevated experience will be an investment of $1,999 (and will be her last time offering coaching services!).
