Dr. jKonrad Hole was FANTASTIC! He was easy to get in touch with to finalize our plans, arrived early to check in with us, and did a great job of playing along with our random one-liners throughout the ceremony. With all of the stress and anxiety leading up to the wedding, Dr. Hole's calming demeanor was definitely appreciated.

Sean is an amazing healer, life coach, therapist, and body talk expert. He was able to bring peace to some old emotional wounds that I hadn’t thought about or even realized were still there. I went to him because I felt “stuck” and was searching for advice on my life purpose. After just two months of sessions, I already felt much healing and therefore more joy than ever in my daily life and am also able to express myself better and see more clearly changes to make to encourage my happiness and growth so that I may pursue my dreams being more in the flow and in the spirit of love.

I have had the privilege and honor of working with Sharon and I wish to share my experience so those out there, seeking to find that special person find solace and comfort in reading this. Sharon is an extremely attuned individual, who clearly has been a master of her craft for many years. She will listen to you, while collecting a sketch of who you are, what you have done and where you wish to go as a professional. She, as a paintbrush does with colors, will formulate in the most concise, relevant and articulate way, who you are and all that you have done and wish to, assembled beautifully and formatted with all that you have asked for in writing. She is expert with many platforms, is determined, authentic and committed to a client she works with, and I could not have asked for someone better in all areas! Her main goal/focus is to get you where you need to be - regardless of how close or far one is to the goal. It is difficult enough to self-market, even for those who are good with this, but she will always find a way to make the narrative interesting and memorable in the way she places her wording and chooses her statements about the person she works with. In addition, she her sensibilities and ability to really listen to the person makes for a more valuable journey, since she has a natural way of being an introspective listener while allowing the person to self-reflect. This allows for one to be honest with one's professional quest. I chose Sharon among many that are listed for professional writers/job seekers etc. Sharon works at all levels of the corporate hierarchy so her knowledge base, expertise and approach are all integrated behind successful yield and results! She has this personal touch in the way she works with you, and you at all times feel she gets to know you, versus it being just another client. She takes great pride in her work, will research everything there is to know and is diligent within her time frames and deadlines she sets for herself. I could not have been happier working with Sharon. She is a rare gem and I would highly recommend her to anyone who seeks professional advice/guidance and coaching. She is in addition, an extremely gifted writer. Thank you so much Sharon for your time, wisdom and incredible skills!

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!

Theresa has been blessed with a very special gift and she uses it wisely to help those who are searching to find their "true self". Treat yourself to a session with this wonderful healer and you will have a spiritual experience you will never forget. I have known Theresa and her spirit guide Naomi for many years and the love and wisdom that has been imparted to me in my many sessions with Theresa is something I will always cherish.

Leah is beyond talented! I am so grateful that I was guided to her as I was really trying to grasp and shift my experience with my Twin Flame. Leah is extremely down to earth and is truly dedicated to her work. I’ve honestly never met someone more passionate, knowledgeable and gifted. My experiences have been jaw-dropping (in a good way) and has changed my entire outlook on things. She is extremely professional and the values she provides is absolutely priceless. The amount of value I’ve received in simply in a few sessions is by far mesmerizing. By far one of the best services I’ve used and purchased. I would highly recommend Leah to anyone who is looking for high quality coaching regarding soul connections.

My former employer worked with a 3rd party company called RiseSmart. While I was in between jobs, RiseSmart assigned Stephanie Swanbeck to be my Career Coach. It was my first time working with a company like RiseSmart, so I had no idea what to expect. Words to describe Stephanie: friendly, professional, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, good listener, problem solver. She was very good at listening to me to understand my situation, what skills and experience I had, and how my skills and experience could be scripted to help me land my ideal role. We covered a multitude of topics, including resume writing, common interview questions, and negotiation tactics. Every time I had a question, she was able to come up with a well thought-out response to help me think about things from a different perspective. I really enjoyed working with Stephanie, and I would recommend her to all future clients. If I could, I would give her a 6 out of 5 stars!

For the kinds of ongoing conditions, along with periodic sports injuries that I suffer, Nina's treatments are a valuable part of my health and wellness. She was awesome when I was first referred to her eight years ago when I had a broken femur, in quelling excruciating pain, and stimulating ongoing healing of the accompanying soft tissue and nerve chain damage.

I've been working with Ginny for over a year and I couldn't be more pleased with her support and our results. She really helped me during a difficult time in my career – I felt stymied and couldn’t get to the next level. Much of it was mental and some of it was external. She helped me work through the confusing maze of issues and thanks to her I was able to bring clarity and vision to both my personal and professional lives. Through months of coaching and clarifying, I was able to gain confidence, override obstacles and become more true to myself. And I also got that promotion I was aiming for. I’m so grateful to Ginny for her coaching/support over this past year and I highly recommend her. Maria P.
