Our first time experiencing marriage counseling. With just our first session we've learned so much. Michelle explains everything so well from a man and woman's point of view. Really looking forward to our sessions with her.
Fawn has been coaching me for several months now and it has been a life changing experience. I have never had a coach before Fawn and decided to give it a try because I needed a boost in motivation and some help moving into another career. I was skeptical of the whole coaching thing at first but I am curious by nature and the first session is free so I thought, "why not"? Normally I'll spend a whole day pondering and planning a project and many times not really accomplish much, but in 90 min with Fawn and her "laser focus" approach we always come up with a clear plan of attack. I always walk away feeling supercharged and motivated to take the appropriate steps towards my goals. Sometimes we all need someone to help us organize our thoughts and hold us accountable for getting things done. At no time I feel as if she is telling me what to do. Rather she is great at knowing exactly the questions to ask so that I can reach the solution on my own. I can talk with her about everything from work to relationships as well as my personal challenges. Thanks Fawn! I look forward to continuing our journey together.
I needed to update my résumé and a cover letter to distinguish myself from the competition. I asked Fred to help me with this task and he responded promptly. He also helped me with my career goals to clarify my targets and to foresee any other additional possibilities. I enjoyed his work style and the results were outstanding. I less than 2 weeks I got hired.
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.
Therapy never quite made a difference for me in the past, and believe me I really wanted it to. Samanthas approach is so completely different and more personal then anything I experienced before that it has profoundly impacted my life in a way I always wished therapy would have. Unlike others, she helped me understand my life as a whole - and helped me develop a sense of self-compassion I never before realized would be so instrumental in my self-acceptance and self-growth. I learned to appreciate what it really means to be a growing human-being with Samantha and I learned to step back and see the whole picture of my life instead of just chopped up and seperate events. Some are good at making you think they understand you, but with Samantha one feels it. Best of all, she feels like a friend that really relates and not a detached doctor taking suspicious notes that is always at an arms length. I only wish I had met her sooner.
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.
Natalia Benson has an amazing gift to offer the world that is unique to her and her practice. I highly recommend seeing Natalia for life coaching and healing. I leave sessions after working with Natalia feeling so serene and clear about my life path. Natalia is a natural intuitive and is able to see and pick up on things that the normal person would not which is why I love talking to her. Natalia is an amazing listener, has an open-mind/heart, and I am confident to say that I would trust her to lead me in the right direction in any area that I need work on in my life, whether it be career, spirituality, finances, self-esteem, relationships, love, navigating emotions, self-care, literally everything! You will get way more than you ever expected with Life Coaching from Natalia!
Grace is a phenomenal coach! I came to her at a time when I was experiencing a lot of turbulence with my relationships and in my career. With her fantastic listening skills, compassion and keen insights, she helped me quickly understand the source of my personal and professional challenges. She then supported me to replace negative thoughts, ambiguous boundaries and self-defeating behaviors with positive thoughts and habits and helped me develop a clear vision of what I want (as well as a plan on how to get it). Grace has a great ability to get right to the source of a problem and provides excellent guidance, resources and tools that are of tremendous value. She got me unstuck and feeling strong, heard, and productive again. Grace goes above and beyond expectation and is a true God send!

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.
I keep crossing paths with Carlyle, and each time we meet again, I am more impressed with his dedication and the breadth of his knowledge. When I first met Carlyle, he was a chaplain for Hospice working with children and some of the more difficult cases, even for Hospice. We collaborated with some work investigating indigenous technologies that deal with grieving, community and relationship, and now share some responsibilities guiding a non-profit group doing water projects and education projects in West Africa. Carlyle has provided counseling and support for some people I know well, and I have been able to see up close the compassion and skill that he brings when working with people who are often in some very vulnerable places. He has recommended some powerful practices and rituals to people that have helped them to ground, and better hold and move the energies they are wrestling with. I have the highest regard for Carlyle, and recommend him with no reservations for help with grief and spiritual needs.
Greg is a truly awesome career coach! I highly recommend Greg if you are facing career challenges. He has constantly reminded me of where my strengths are and significantly helped my interview performance. He also follows up to keep in touch and make sure that I am doing great. Greg is very caring and able to provide valuable insights that will guide you to the right paths. Most importantly, he has inspired me to work harder in pursuing my dreams.
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!
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.
