praise

My clients amaze me.

photo-216Not because they say nice things about me, but because I’m in awe of their depth, courage, wisdom, perseverance, and commitment to living deeply and making more meaningful lives for themselves. I’m tremendously thankful to be able to connect with them on such a real and soulful level.

Those who wrote the following words to me in emails, cards, and letters have graciously offered to share their stories with you.

Embracing risk, creativity, and vulnerability…

You have been such a guide, a support, and really a mentor of sorts for me. I am listening to my own voice more than ever, taking more risks and keeping vulnerability and creativity at the forefront of all my actions. I have you to thank for seeing what that path can offer. -K.H.

Movement in many areas of life…

This journey with you is fabulous and spurring movement for me in my personal world, work-land and marriage–a truly rich experience. I wish I could bottle you up and share you with my friends! -C.L.

A journey of self-discovery…

Little did I know this would change my life. It’s been a journey of self-exploration and self-discovery for me. You have a true gift for guiding people in this process. You’ve helped me develop the tools and skills that I need to align my life with my gifts, values, and dreams. -S.W.

New ways of communicating…

I really appreciate your ear (and heart) during the ups and downs. And I know my ways of communicating and looking at things from a different perspective have improved tenfold. -M.H.

Soothing and insightful…

I’ll always remember my time with you as soothing, insightful, and very precious. I’ve been awed by how you do your work. Thank you for being there; you made a big difference to me. -N.H.

Helping you see for yourself…

I wanted to let you know how much I get out of our sessions. You certainly have an excellent way of helping others “see for themselves.” I feel like we have known each other for a LONG while, even if it is a few months. -N.W.

Claiming your deepest, truest, self…

I am so grateful to have you gently guide me to my deeper, truer self. And for the first time, I’m finally at peace about the holidays. All the while, I’m thinking “mindfulness.” That word and what it means is going to get me through. -P.F.

In transition and at a crossroads…

My clutter got organized, my condo got remodeled, and I’m studying buddhism, so you helped me a lot. I was at a crossroads when I first worked with you, and you helped me find the balance I needed to move forward. You have a seemingly endless trove of exercises to lift clients out of their ruts and help them see daylight again. -C.F.

An intuitive process…

You’re really intuitive. You catch the important little vibes and hone in on them. Working with you has helped me reach my goals by reminding me of who I am and what I’m capable of doing. I’ve faced some challenges but been successful, which brings confidence and a desire for more changes in my life. -D.M.

Aha moments after each session…

I feel very thankful that I found you. Your style is very helpful for me and I feel I accomplish an aha with each session. I also appreciate the homework assignments as it helps me to write things down and see trends in my thinking and record my patterns of internal dialogue/external dialogue and personal growth. -J.R.

Getting unstuck and getting a new job…

I wanted to thank you for all your help. It paid off in a very real way, as I have a new job! It’s my fourth week there so it’s all terrible new and exciting. I’m glad I was able to make the move. I’ll always be very grateful for your help in my quest to become unstuck. -A.R.

Progress after just one session…

The session we had was very helpful. I have been doing two things differently as a result…I have begun dating again and have been working in much more of a mode that fits my natural style. (I realized I do best in very productive spurts, and then taking time away from it instead of feeling tied to my desk for set hours.) Also, your questions about where I’m at in my life cycle, and winding down vs. gearing up for something new and big, were right on.  -T.S.

A revelation about deep values…

I felt like my thoughts were all over the place. But working with you revealed a lot about who I am and gave me the confidence to be who I am. My biggest revelation was that values are the core of my happiness and life. That gave me clarity and strength. -L.B.

A rebirth of creativity…

Our work together got me back to painting again, working with clay, taking guitar lessons after strumming the same three cords for 20 years. I now know that the more I use my creative energies to do things that make my heart sing, the more I move towards doing what I love and being supported financially, spiritually, emotionally. -G.P.

Confidence that comes from seeing yourself in a different light…

You understand me in a way no one else could, and you had a great part in helping things happen for me. You helped me see myself in a different light, which gave me the confidence in myself to believe that I had this in me. -M.G.

Reclaiming neglected passions…

You helped me realize that I needed to recognize other aspects of my life. I had totally neglected my passions for so long that I had forgotten exactly what does make me happy. The result is that I’ve done things I never expected to do, like traveling to Europe, buying a house, and completing a graduate credential. -J.J.
