Honestly I had no idea I was working with him! I had seemed his service in requesting help with my health and with my career. I was instantly drawn to him and felt like I could open up with him! I can’t say it was an easy route bc by far it wasn’t! This experience has been by far one of the hardest obstacles I’ve ever had to encounter! I’ve been back in school and pretty much training myself through the whole process or at least it felt like I was alone struggling to make this happen but I’m now realizing that I have a whole Network of people on my side! You guys have given me what they call tough Love! I feel like a renewed & young again (speaking of mentally!) LoL I am just getting started! Have a whole life ahead of me! I’ll never be done learning! Always be helping, contributing, giving, achieveing and being all I can be! If for some reason I fail at a job I’ll still have my children and my children are the most important thing in this world to me! I’ve lost my twin sister years back and my life has been downward since then! John , thank you for that tough Loving! They are the reason I’ve changed! I thank God everyday for helping me to overcome my issues I once had! I look forward to coaching right along side of John! We all need to start helping one another even the small things can make a huge difference ! Anyone like to join in on change?! All is welcome! I’d like to thank all of those that were involved! God Bless each and everyone of you! To everyone’s success! Few others I’d like to mention , Palm beach Research Group, Marketers Traders Institute, Social Security, NBC, CBS, Funnel X Project, Go Daddy,Click Bank, Sen,.....there’s many many more! Forgive me in advance to those I haven’t mentioned. Once again God Bless I love you all! Together we can...CHANGE
Sean is an intuitive, insightful and compassionate healer. I went to him for help with my career. After a couple sessions it turned out it wasn't my career that was in need attention but other areas of my life. I had some internal mental blocks that we addressed. By doing some deep meditations, he helped me work through them. After each session I felt shifts happening in my life. They were subtle but very impactful. I can honestly say after working with Sean I feel more peaceful and content with where I am in my life. I strongly recommend using his services. It will be time and money well spent.
As a business owner and CEO most of my professional career, it is difficult to find someone who can cut through all the BS and get down to the core...my core...what drives me...what has held me back? What is the one thing that has been missing? Lea Goldenring helped me find those answers. She is very engaging and creates a very safe healthy environment in which to do some very productive work. I got more out of a few sessions with her than any of the many self help / self improvement books I have read. If you really want to take up your game, Lea is the "real deal" and is a pleasure to work with...Highly recommended!
I've been working with Conrad Sherby of Life Sherpa Fitness for more than 2 years and find my weekly sessions with him a true highlight of every week. The gym where he practices is clean and uncrowded and reserved only for trainers with clients. It's a positive place where the trainers and clients are all respectful, happy, and working on their various goals. Conrad is a rare gem of a trainer, although the term "trainer" doesn't begin to cover what he offers! He is truly gifted and fully oriented to helping his clients achieve whatever health/fitness goals they want; heck, if you're not sure of your goals, he'll help you by asking the right questions, getting to know you and your habits, and figuring out plans with you. As you continue your teamwork, Conrad frequently adjusts the trajectory of your workouts and recommendations for you as your body or life events change (eg, you get stronger, you're injured, you're overly stressed from a poor work-life balance, your life has too little happiness at the moment, and so on!). Conrad also has a myriad of excellent referrals for you to increase your wellness, for example, to a massage therapist or gifted yoga instructor. Conrad gave me a reference to my new-favorite cookbook, too. As a true educator, he also will send you interesting and helpful videos, articles, or links to apps you may benefit from. We've even gone on weekend hikes with a small group together--just for fun and camaraderie while exploring something new. Conrad could easily have chosen to become a doctor, neuroscientist, teacher at any level, psychologist/counselor, among others, but it speaks to his passion that he chose what drives him the most: a career as a health/happiness/wellness/mindfulness coach using his large base of knowledge, his passion for science-based information, his innate ability to "get" people, and his orientation toward helping others attain a healthy life that works within their life patterns. He has tremendous patience and never judges others; plus, in between sessions, he will even text you to see how that new "habit" is going (eg, "how's the stretching going during the work day?" "Did you have a chance to step away from the computer and take a walk this week?"). I cannot recommend him highly enough--you deserve a try with Conrad to increase your levels of happiness and overall wellness.
I have had the pleasure of coaching with Summer Simonton regarding my career successes. She "gets" people and life's challenges right away and has been able to quickly guide me down the right path each time. I continue to rely on her coaching and always will. Carole Browne
Nicole played a big role in my career development. My issues have been trying to focus on what I want to do and how to do it, and working with Nicole on those issues put me on the right path for success. What I love about Nicole is that she forces you to see the big picture, ask yourself the hard (but necessary) questions, and then identify the steps to reach your goals. I look forward to using Nicole again when I need to navigate life and career changes, which I anticipate will reduce my fear of making those changes, knowing I have her in my back pocket.
Carrie helped me through some blocks I had with a career change. She is very positive and a great support. I will use her again if I ever need a push in the right direction!
I reached out to Timur at a time in my running career when I needed some guidance in reassessing my relationship with the sport. I had been training for the Olympic Trials and had experienced a particularly disappointing season, which had left me searching for a new approach. Timur was just what I was looking for. He was able to bring his background in therapy, his own experience as an elite athlete, and his martial arts techniques into our sessions. He created a safe space for self-discovery and growth. We delved into advanced body awareness, technical aspects of running, meditation, flow-state running, race planning, and even play. I walked away from our weekly sessions with tools for life, in addition to running. At the end of our time together, I had found the shift in my relationship to running that I had been seeking, thanks to Timur. I would recommend him to any runner, no matter what your experience level. He facilitates a relationship with running that is deep, meaningful, and sustainable. A rare find!
Terry is a brilliant facilitator. She brings energy and life to any group she leads. I participated in a team building she lead and 30 people were engaged, excited and involved. As a coach, she gave me gentle pushes towards my goals and helped me identify what I really needed to accomplish. I felt comfortable with her and motivated to use her tools to better my career and my life.
Gaynor truly was more than I could have ever asked for. She really helped me focus, provided honest feedback and motivation to help me figure out what I want to do next in my career. I strongly recommend her to anyone in the Bay area looking for a career coach to receive feedback on your resume, career guidance or help you get to that next level.
I found Deesign Life Coaching at a time in my life when I felt change was needed. Both in my personal life and career. And wow was I amazed! Through the mentoring and positive support I received not only the willingness to open my mind, but was given the steps to focus on to help me achieve whatever I set my mind to. I feel like a new person who's been empowered and awakened. I cannot say enough great things about the teaching and guidance provided by DeeSign and highly reccomend that anyone who feels they want change or just want to better some part of their life to give it a try. Thanks again!
Jennifer was fantastic! I was facing some tough situations dealing with moving my career forward. I felt stuck, unable to make a decision about moving forward or staying where I am. After my sessions with Jennifer, it became crystal clear what I needed to do. I'm so grateful to Jennifer for giving me clarity and motivation. Plus, her personality makes her feel like a friend as well as a coach.
Worked with Susan Evans, RN in an intensive partial hospitalization program where she was the psychiatric nurse for the entire program. Her skill, expertise, compassion, experience and humor were great assets and greatly appreciated by staff and clients alike! A terrific health care professional, with unlimited energy and a wide variety of talents.
Jacquie is great. Having her available during my job search made the process so much less stressful. She helped edit my resume, condense and streamline my cover letter, connected me to people she knew in the industry, wrote referral letters and gathered useful feedback regarding my applications. She has a ton of insight and wisdom on how to beef up your resume, how to interpret interview feedback and how to stay grounded & motivated throughout your search. Working with her felt like having a cheerleader, editor, mentor and agent rolled into one awesome package, and I would absolutely recommend that anyone looking to switch jobs, enter the workforce or change careers utilize her services.
When I left my last job I was really struggling to find a new path. Anyone who has been involved in an early-stage startup knows just how much stress and burnout can derail your ideas about what you want for your life and career. Having support, encouragement, and advice from another female professional was what I craved at that time in my life. Victoria was exactly what I was looking for. She provided me with the patient listening, advice, and sometimes commiserating, that I needed to move on and begin my next job hunt. I happily found an amazing new job at the beginning of last year where I've been able to set personal time boundaries and earn the respect of my superiors. I adore this woman. And I know you will too.
Harmony is a godsend! I was struggling with a major life change, and she guided me through the transition with grace and kindness. She put together a program that helped me identify my "Core Values" in life - aka the non-negotiables I need to be happy. I had never taken the time to concretely pinpoint those, and now they are a beacon for every decision I make. With my "Core Values" as a foundation, Harmony asked all the right questions to lead me to take a major life decision I can feel confident settling on. More than anything, Harmony was a rock in a stormy sea. When I felt self-doubt creep in, I messaged her and she always provided advice to instantly calm me. Harmony is like having an on-demand therapist, career coach, and friend packaged in one!
My career has transformed completely since working with Emily. I came to Emily feeling stuck in my career and unsure of how to tap into my skills. The coaching process has helped me to learn about myself and what I need to do to succeed. Also, Emily held me accountable to myself and to her which caused me to actually get stuff done and make progress towards achieving my goals. Now, I have my own business, have won a huge international award, and feel confident in my direction. Thank you Emily!!
Sherry was a great tutor. 2 hours for 20$ was not bad and she went through pronunciation, numbers, weekdays and even travel tips! I think anyone thinking of taking Chinese should first have a class with Sherry to get a feel for the language and how interesting it can be.

Basically I use a lot of self-disclosure in my discussions. I put myself in the person's shoes, since I am an AVID SKINNER disciple and subscriber to his philosophies! I also utilize the Maslow's Hierarchies of needs to demonstrate the fulfillment of life to higher degree. That being said, I then put the above techniques to use for the problems and crisis that this individual is encountering at this stage of his or her life. Making a more personal approach to define and hopefully resolve their challenged crisis.
