Coach Michelle was influential in me making a transition in my life. She is very compassionate but very truthful in her approach. When you are in crisis, you dont know what the plan should be or the first step to putting one together. She is very good at helpingyou with a plan and holding you accountable to it. IN the first meeting I felt hope and by the 4th meeting I felt empowered. My family begin to notice the transformation and I was much more fully present within my relationshipb. Most of all it was a great moment in my life to get to know me!
I have trained with Johanna out of my home since February and cannot recommend her enough! She is a very sweet & friendly young woman but most of all full of energy, reliable & effective. Johanna gives me the push I need to get the most out of my training when I'm with her as well as on my own. We train twice/wk and no two sessions have ever been the same. She tailors them to my personal needs and ability and is very knowledgeable about diet and overall health. Johanna demonstrates she honestly cares. I can always count on her to truthfully & promptly answer any questions I may have. My initial goal was to lose 30lbs. I have lost 25 of them so far & once I achieve that goal, I will definitely be setting a new one. I am undeniably happy with my results thus far not only because I look better, but more importantly because I FEEL better! Thank you Johanna for going above and beyond in efforts to make this new lifestyle transition an achievable one! Not only have I gained knowledge & strength...but I have also gained a great friend along the way!
I could write a complete memoir around my experience with Fawn. Before I get into it, I want to be very straightforward: Fawn: -Incredibly smart with huge range of knowledge in counseling and resources -Infinitely compassionate -Super easy to talk to and considerate of me -My biggest cheerleader (I'm talking up there next to my mom) -Worth every penny Me: (and you, future client!) -Stuck / Confused / Unhappy -Willing to be utterly honest with Fawn and myself -Open to making big and small lifestyle changes -Committed to spend as much reasonable time on coaching exercises and reading -(4 months later) Crazy in love with myself and so proud to have embarked on this journey to create my HELL YES life I liken my experience with Fawn to be, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." (Buddha) I was in a really tough place in my life, feeling like I had no direction or even a compass to guide me. Fawn struck me with a phrase in her bio that said that she helps women who feel like they are stuck. I totally identified with that. I knew that something needed to change in my life. I originally reached out with the intent that it would be my career, but working with Fawn became so much more. With her guidance and support I have made incredible changes in my life, self-appreciation, discipline, relationships, spirituality, and happiness. We started unpacking the deepest of deep limiting beliefs that I had about myself. In no way would I describe this process as easy, but the payoff is oh so sweet. I have personal testimonies from the people around me (some of who don't know that I'm working with a coach) that recognize a change in my daily happiness. One of the MANY things I have loved about working with Fawn is her ability to zero in on what I need. She has incredible knowledge combined with a natural intuition of how to help her clients grow. Even if I didn't know what I would accomplish on a given call, it was her talent and expertise that helped me each step along the way. She introduced me to new methods of communication and taught me many exercises that I will continue to use whenever I am faced with challenging situations for the rest of my life. She also recommends great books :) Another area of note where I noticed a huge change in the course of my coaching with Fawn is my self-discipline. I was really struggling with accomplishing anything that felt like "work". (Outside of work.) I was a writer that hadn't written in years and through my personalized action items (or assignments) I began a very therapeutic return to my art. I also started creating a schedule and setting goals for myself. Over time, the result and accomplishment of doing the "work" totally outweighed the dread that hovers around procrastination. I was able to change a really bad habit that I specifically identified in the beginning of this journey. I have a remarkable amount of quantifiable self-improvement in my google docs that I am so proud of. I have to second another review I saw saying if "you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge..." DO IT. Your life is about to change.
I've been working with Hellena for over a year now, and she's fantastic! She's been great with helping me understand my own strengths and weaknesses and how to communicate with others, and has also been lending an ear and sound mind with problems I face with my high-stress work. I've found a great friend and mentor in Hellena, and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone else who's looking for someone to help them guide their own career growth as well.
Kelli has worked closely with me and my children during a very difficult transition in our lives. She has been supportive, compassionate and creative in working with us in providing counseling. Her methods are practical and effective. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
A few things brought me to the Pasadena. After an 18 month long hiatus from sprint triathlons, a change in career and relocating to Pasadena, my search for a new trainer started. I plugged into Thumbtack and interviewed some candidates, then I found Tommy. What a find!! He's experienced, educated, motivating and understands my ultimate goal in my sport. I came in with a slight injury and his rehabilitative exercises are effective and yet making me stronger and faster. His dedication to what he does exudes through his training. He identifies and encourages me to push. Any athlete could increase their athleticism and talent when working with Tommy. Everything you want to know about your functioning body, nutrition, supplements, etc., he knows it. His patience is endless. I've trialed other trainers, but the rapport was lacking in attentiveness and follow through. 100% present every time. A life investment worth every minute. I feel confident that my goals will be reached working with Tommy Houck.
I reached out to Claudia to help me with my career in business development and sales. After my first session with Caludia I already started feeling and seeing the positive results in my career and my personal life. I am excited to seeing my results as my therapy continues with her.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Elenie Opffer for the past month. This year I decided to make a transition professionally into a slightly different field of work. After updating my resume I realized I was rusty and out of practice with my interview skills. Elenie and her professional expertise have helped me articulate my strengths and skills and confidently transform them into responses to some of the toughest interview questions. Taking her professional advice on recorded mock interview exercises and giving me feedback on my cover letters has allowed me to stand out beyond my competition. Her professional insight and coaching has prepared me to be a more confident and refined professional. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Elenie. The amount of value you receive from her knowledge and detailed coaching will allow you to be the polished professional companies seek.
I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.
For career minded individuals Emma offers a compelling mix of openness, strong listening and understanding skills, with proven business acumen; in short she understands the world you are operating in. Furthermore, Emma has a lovely way of getting to the heart of this issue (root rather than the symptoms) and keeping you focused on reaching your potential with a strong action plan. I highly recommend working with Emma.
I've hired MJ in the past for consultation and career services. He is without a doubt the best man for the job. His years of experience in the camp world, in addition to his practical-problem-solving outlook makes him the perfect addition to your team whether you are starting a new venture or looking to rope in what you've already got in front of you. MJ helped me go from "not sure where to advertise" to "I need help managing all these bookings!" He traveled to me with concise ideas of how he could help. I look forward to having another reason to hire him!
I've been going to Kay for five years for coaching on various career-related needs. She always asks strategic questions and provides objective feedback in a positive manner. She also follows up to discuss how things have changed/improved and provides additional guidance when necessary. I've always felt comfortable seeking guidance from Kay and look forward to continuing to work with her.
Miriam has been coaching my family and I for the last year. It has opened up a whole new world for me, not only in my personal and family life, but in my business and career. Miriam has helped me set certain goals, and has been there for me every step of the way until they were achieved with tremendous success. With both my children being coached as well, it has lifted their self esteem, and today are thriving academically and socially. I highly recommend Miriam. Her trustworthy nature, sensitivity, and strong skills will give you the tools to have your life transformed to the levels you always dreamed of. I know my life changed for the best, thanks to her! For that, I am forever grateful!
My role as a board member with Pronet Career Resources, a support group for unemployed professionals, is to find speakers that can assist the members in developing the skills needed to obtain a new position in the workforce. Michael stepped right up and offered his services. The information and personal involvement was tremendous and the members who attended Mike's talks and trainings were simply blown away by his presentation. Everyone was impressed with his enthusiasm and professionalism. I have also had the pleasure of recommending Michael as a speaker for a networking group of business owners. His presentation hit the mark for the attendees on how to improve themselves and their businesses. Mike is a great coach and a great speaker. Any company or organization would do well to have Michael as a featured speaker to help reach their goals and objectives.
Goddess Ashtoreth has been my life coach for over 4 years and I am very grateful for her. I look back at the me when we first met and who I am today, the transformation is incredible! She is very patient, understanding and honest. She makes you take a good look at yourself, good and bad. She makes you accountable for you and your actions. With her, you touch on so many aspects of who you are and life. It’s about mind, body and spirit with her. It’s about recognizing, acknowledging and embracing the wounds that lie dormant deep within. She helps you get in touch with these wounds and then the healing process begins. She calls this process “The Onion Peel”. At first I did not quite understand what she meant, but as you start the process it makes complete sense. One layer at a time. You have to peel back one layer in order to get to the next layer. She is so patient about it. She understands that everyone has to go at his or her own pace. With her patience, it helps the individual evolve and transform. This is what she truly wants for each individual. It’s not about her; it is truly about wanting you to become the best version of you. You feel this from her. You feel the love from her. With working with her you evolve in some many areas in your life. Be career, relationship, finances, etc. It’s all connected. You have to be healthy in all areas in order to achieve your greatness. When you work with Ashtoreth it’s about complete self. She helps you see you and find you. Again, I am so grateful for her. Without her I am not sure where I would be with self and life.
Mel's insight and encouragement helped me battle through a seriously bleak period i went through this past winter/spring. I went to Mel at a time when I was facing obstacles that I thought I just couldn't overcome and i didn't know where else to turn. I was in the midst of a health crisis, was laid off from my job, dealing relationship issues that left me feeling worthless an depressed, and dealing with difficult family members. I literally thought all was lost. Mel listened to me with the warmth and compassion of a dear friend, but also challenged me to go to those dark places and gain awareness of my patterns and "stories" that kept me in this ugly self-defeating cycle. Through her eloquently put insight and encouragement, I left every session feeling empowered with a realistic plan of attack. Armed with the tools Mel taught me, I feel like I have matured beyond what i ever thought possible for myself and gained an invaluable sense of awareness that i consciously continue to build. Im very happy to report that i feel like I have made it through the worst time in my life so far. Its been a long rollercoaster of a journey, but Im physically and emotionally on the mend, and i am embarking on a very exciting career opportunity. I am sure that this new adventure would not be in my life were it not for the amazing growth I went through via life coaching. I intend to make working on building my awareness and opening consciousness a lifelong pursuit. Its hard to imagine such powerful wisdom coming from someone you'd just as easily hang out at happy hour with, but Mel is a rare gem who possesses wisdom well beyond her years. As I have gotten to know her more through the Raise Your State community, I have seen her candidly battle through her own difficult journeys. If you are lucky enough maybe one day she'll tell you her story. For me personally, It has been an amazing thing to witness this transformation in her, and even more incredible to see her come out the other side wanting to dive back into the depths to help other young people who are feeling just as lost. She is not only a life coach to me but and endless source of inspiration and light.
I had a hard time building my first resume alone. Cristine helped me not just to do it, but also to understand what I was really looking for my career.

Starting or having a real estate career doesn’t come with a user’s manual. Agents start with a license, big dreams, learn by experience, and succeed by perseverance and determination. The truth is, most brokers don’t have time to train properly and don’t make enough money off their agents to care. This consulting program is an open book policy from a broker who still operates a brokerage, sells real estate, and has a track record to training high producing agents.

I have in my 66 years an outstanding formal education with many certificates and degrees. What makes me standout is that I have spent 30 plus years in personal development going through decades of personal spiritual training and every imaginable kind of bodywork and therapy. I have a unique ability for empathic connection and to find and focus quickly on the issues at hand.
