I reached out to Provider name locked. soon after my 44th birthday when I realized that despite having a large circle of friends and acquaintances, the little black sports car I had always wanted, a beautiful loft condo and what I had always thought would be my dream job, I was not happy. I felt almost plagued by the feeling that something wasn’t right – that there were things that I still wanted and couldn’t seem to get, that my job no longer challenged or fulfilled me and that if I continued on in the same Provider name locked. as I had been, I might never realize or fulfill my purpose.
When Provider name locked. and I first met, she took a holistic approach in our meetings, asking questions and giving me homework to better understand who I am, what I valued and how I got to be where I was at that time. I found the entire process helpful because I
was able to identify patterns of behavior, communication and decision-making that were no longer working effectively for me.
I learned a lot of things while working with Provider name locked. , but there are a couple of things that had the greatest impact on me both personally and professionally. First, I learned to recognize my energy levels and those of others around me. By energy levels, I mean emotional states, motivating thoughts and worldviews. In recognizing them, I could make better decisions about how to communicate, relate to others and lead my life. This information has been particularly helpful at work, where I was able to better understand what was needed to more effectively interact with my colleagues and lead my team. Second, after taking Provider name locked. ’s Accountability workshop and doing the homework she assigned, I learned how to make more effective requests, to better honor commitments to myself and others and to generally be more accountable. By attending the workshop, I was able to turn wishes and visions of what I wanted into specific, measurable, attractive, reasonable and timely goals and to hold myself accountable to fulfilling them.
Since working with Provider name locked. , I have made two career moves, each taking me closer to work that helps me fulfill what I believe to be my life's purpose. I truly believe that had I not reached out to Provider name locked. when I did, I would not have as clear a vision of what I want to do next both professionally and personally. Nor would I have had some of the skills necessary to take me there.

Clear and clean –that’s what I was looking for in a coach. It’s funny that I realized this after initially meeting Provider name locked. . For me and my process with her, these are her most important credentials. Her clarity speaks to her own self-journey, her strong foundation in psychotherapeutic knowledge, and her clear-eyed and practiced savvy. She is clean -- that is, she presents an atmosphere that is not judgmental or critical of the client, rather one that is accepting, calm, and kind in her approach to understanding the context of who you are and where you are in your life.
I appreciate that Provider name locked. is grounded in orthodoxy, but that she is open and organic in her approach. She was creative in crafting ways to help me uncover issues to work on and offer paths to mobilize the best in me both professionally and personally. She is sensitive to the zigs and zags of this process and offers encouragement and humor along the way. She believes in partnering with you to transform and fulfill your power of self at the level that you are ready to undertake in the process. She has uncanny insights, encourages you to reach, and is honest in her assessments.
Beyond her smarts and empathy, I appreciated that Provider name locked. brought light to the coaching process. Not just from a spiritual sense, but also as in “lightness” –reminding me to have sense of play, of fun with the work.
