About Marni Battista

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and Dating With Dignity.  

My name is Marni Battista and I'm a Los Angeles, CA-based Life and Relationship coach, and the founder of DatingWithDignity.com.  I teach women all over the world how to attract Mr. Right, and, most importantly, how to be and feel like Mrs. Right no matter if you're single, married, divorced, or otherwise.

I have a Masters in Education and am Certified as a Life Coach by the International Coaching Federation (IPEC). I have performed rigorous training to become a certified Master Practitioner at administering an Energy Assessment — "The D-Factor" – that helps clients pinpoint exactly why they are, or are not date-able, and what types of messages they are unconsciously broadcasting to men based on their thoughts, feelings, actions and attitudes. I'm also trained as a Facilitator and Mentor Trainer by the Hoffman Institute, a world-renowned leader in personal development.

If you're interested in speaking with me directly about how I can help you love yourself so you can find someone incredible to love, please contact me at Marni@DatingWithDignity.com, or by telephone at 310-880-2476.

Marni Battista Success Stories

Haley Can't Stop Dating Great Men!

Women newly dating

Wow, what a week! I'm a dating machine! On Monday, I went out on my second date with James. Tonight I went on a date that my friend set me up on. I have never dated this much in my life!more

I actually feel like I'm learning a lot about myself from dating. Even when I don't feel that connection, I'm still having fun because of my expectation to show up, learn something new about someone else, and have fun. I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you!

How Mary Found Her Confidence

Single women

I got a compliment today from my old trainer. He said, "you're so much calmer than before! What you got a man now or something?" Little does he know it has nothing to do with a man!more

Wow, it makes me so happy to hear that because I feel so much more confident about myself and it showed in the vibe and energy level I'm sending out. I'm coming to terms with me, having clarity to think critically.

I used to be that girl who waits by her phone to check if I had gotten a text from the guy I'm dating. Then I would ask all my friends what I should say or how to respond. One word: silly.

You're awesome and blow Alison Armstrong out of the water! I'm free--yay! 

Jason Learns to Commit!

Men seeking to start over in a relationship

I am stunned by the effectiveness of Marni Battista’s coaching. Friends and family have always known me as “Mr. Single For Life,” and I was buying into it, unconsciously labeling myself as “Undateable.” Marni used the D-Factor Assessment to help me recognize the destructive self-talk and garbage I’d been carrying around for so many years. Most importantly, she held me accountable to clear it out and consciously shift.more

Within two weeks of my one-hour Marni Battista coaching session -- I’m not exaggerating here -- I began a new romantic relationship that has been TOTALLY THRIVING. I have a healthier relationship with myself as well, which allows me to SHOW UP with everything I’m capable of in a loving relationship. I suppose I could have done this work on my own, but it would have cost more and taken more time.

Marni, thank you. I’ll make sure you get an invite to the wedding. :)

Alexis Turned Her Dating Life Around

Women seeking a relationship

Since I began the dating with dignity course I’ve taken more responsibility for my own actions as a single person. I’ve also realized negative views will breed more negative views, and how I can change that into the positive. This shift would not have happened without the class. I realized I needed to get clear on the dating process. I need to be more discerning and realize what is it that I want. Marni’s course is very enlightening and refreshing. It gives you clear tools to work with.more

Instead of being single and LA having the power over you, you take the power and have fun being single in LA. Since the course I’ve been developing an inner strength, getting clearer and more grounded, and working with the tools Marni provided me with.

Cedes Became a Man Magnet!

Women seeking a relationship

Thank you, thank you, thank you! After I took the course, dates started coming without me even lookingor applying to a dating site. I'm a magnet. I rated my beliefs by paying attention to the type of men I was attracting. They all have been good quality men. Most of them have met my top 5 musts - Integrity, Responsible, Financially stable, Confident, and complete gentlemen. Now I'm having a hard time deciding who to choose! Imore

t's simply amazing. Also, all of my dates have wanted to date me again and have called immediately. Quite honestly, I never thought I'd be the type of girl to face such a dilemma. I'm writing to give you a thousand Thank You's! Your shared knowledge has truly changed my dating life."

Deb Gained Confidence She Never Dreamed Possible

Women seeking a relationship

For the first time I'm making decisions and not being afraid of making them. I'm not letting my fears overtake me and I am truly learning and believing the message of love for myself. I've always cared about it but never really thought it was that important, but so far I am learning that that it truly is the key.  Self-love is the key to anything and everything.more

I'm glad I am attending this group. I have made some very important decisions from the first week that I started. The lessons truly move you and wake you up, and they make you want to make decisions based on what you're learning right away. It's truly, truly positive.

How Aryn Got Her Life Back

Women seeking to end a relationship

I didn't think coaching was for me. A therapist, that's what I thought would do the trick. I didn't know anyone who had a life coach; everyone has a therapist. After months of therapy, and a handful of prescriptions that I was told would help me deal with the pain, my mental and emotional state were still the same. My destructive thinking, depression, and sadness were still very much alive and thriving.more

Therapy was clearly not working. I thought, why not give this life coach a try – what do I have to lose? After my first session with Marni, I felt different, I felt empowered. Over time, she helped me stop making excuses, got me out of playing the victim, and helped me detach from my break-up in a healthy way – no prescriptions necessary.

The truth is, there is no "trick." It takes work. I remember Marni telling me that people hope one day they will wake up and magically be over their break-up, their relationship, whatever their "situation" may be. While that sounds wonderful, it's absolutely not the case.

You have to put in the work if you want to get through your situation in a healthy way and not make the same mistakes in the future. Marni will undoubtedly help you do that. She saved my life in every way it could have been saved. I stopped blaming other people, started taking control of my life, and began creating a life I love. I would not have been able to do this without my life coach. I love you Marni! Thank you, for teaching me how to get my life back!
