TESTIMONIALS

“Andrea led our group to an oasis within a stormy time. Her profound care and curiosity set the tone for our intimate community where honest, open feelings were spoken, supported and safe. The space within our circle was sacred. Vulnerability was met with love and courage. Andrea encouraged us to listen, like she does, with our hearts. We united in a place of healing transcending the frustrating responsibilities, and burdens that our daily details laid upon us. Together we found the deeper reasons beneath wounds. Our collective connections paved a higher path to the bigger picture. Individually and together our group brought light, companionship, empathy and enduring friendships to some of our personal darkest times. The meanings we found together infused strength and confidence into many challenges. Not only did we learn we were not alone, we discovered the power of trust.”

“As our group leader, Andrea created a safe and comfortable environment for us to discuss topics that were pertinent to our group. Andrea guided our conversations in a loving and thoughtful way that allowed each of us to share and explore our innermost thoughts, feelings, and ideas. Her gentle probing questions helped to reveal answers and insights that we discovered within ourselves and each other.”

“Do you know when you meet someone and immediately feel an affinity toward them?  That is how I felt when I first met Andrea. She is very easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of her business. She has helped me in more ways than I think she even realizes. I absolutely recommend you call Andrea if you are looking for a life coach – she could help you with so many aspects of your life.”

Donna J.

“However small your enterprise, it can be very lonely at the top. With Andrea on your team, you have a 24/7 ally. Her insight, intelligence and experience provide instant relief from “executive loneliness” that is so common among bosses. Her advice is concrete and calls out clear goals and steps to achieve them. Her real life experience and sense of humor are added gifts. And she never fails you with the follow-up!”

“Andrea was my first ever life coach – I will forever be grateful for her! We’ve worked together off and on for several years and I’ve grown so much by working with her. Andrea is compassionate and highly intuitive. She knows when I need cheerleading and when I need a gentle push. She listens deeply and offers up different perspectives when I’m stuck in my own story. She’s helped me reconnect with myself, find confidence in my voice, and go after what I want in life. In fact, she helped me realize that I wanted to become a coach myself! I highly recommend working with Andrea – she’s amazing!”

“I have attended several workshops with Andrea as a facilitator and she is a very thoughtful person with a natural ability to foster an inclusive environment where people can feel comfortable sharing thoughts, ideas, and experiences. Her probing input in discussions helps to inspire rich conversations in diverse groups. She has a clear passion for connecting with people and helping them uncover their potential.”

Genéve S.

“Andrea has a genuine interest in people and a curiosity for what makes them tick, what brings them joy, what holds them back. Her openness and ability to listen deeply provide what feels like an empty bowl or pool of still water that invites one’s own opening. She is kind, clear, and generous. Andrea knows when a group needs to be encouraged and when it needs to find its equilibrium; she honors both energy and stillness. And, she does all this without judgment or bias, meeting groups, and individuals where they are and helping them get to where they want to be.”

Susan W.

“Working with Andrea has helped me grow tremendously. She asks the right questions, provides the right tools, and aims to coach you in the way that’s most effective for you individually. I’ve learned so much already about shame and self-compassion as concepts and also, how to integrate being kinder to myself into my own life. Andrea is also compassionate, funny, positive, and affirming – I feel more confident and inspired after our sessions. I highly recommend her as a life coach for anyone who wants to experience emotional growth!”
