I dont need a career, or life coach I know my direction. When a 2.5 year, full-time contract came to an end a coworker suggested that I might find it helpful to see a friend of hers whom had a coaching and consultancy business (yielding an eye roll from me). As a bit of a favor, I contacted Deb. I have always been laser-focused with my career. I am often the go-to caregiver, and document-person in my family. I pride myself in being able to keep it all together while exceeding goals and expectations. I was blindsided when my first meeting with Deb was a complete catharsis. She helped me slow down, refine my pitch, and build on my strengths as they applied to some of the new skill sets I had acquired, and would be offering as I set out to build my business again. During the couple of months we worked together, Deb was very detailed with our agreed upon goals from meeting-to-meeting. She often followed up between meetings to help me stay on track, and provided subtle but effective encouragement (remember I didnt need a coach). An unexpected bonus was that Deb also happens to be very connected and opened a few key doors for me by making introductions. If you are skeptical about engaging with a coach, Deb will amaze you. Youll wish you had met her ten years earlier. I have a feeling she is a unique coach. I know that I will be engaging with Deb again. -- Cindy Davis
I have fibromyalgia along with a host of on and off sports related injuries and have been under Marlen Caduff's care since 2009. Prior to learning of Marlen, I experimented with other local masseuses. Note, I didn't say massage therapists. Following my initial session with Marlen, I recognized the difference. She combines caring, empathy, deep knowledge of the body and one other thing to render healing and true therapy. Marlen's knowledge of the body transcends physiology. To understand however, it starts there. She has college degrees from Switzerland in nursing and body movement (no American equivalent degree). In addition to massage practices learned in Thailand, her Swiss and American certifications, Marlen specialized in Birth Preparation training in Switzerland. Combine this underlying foundation of knowledge with Marlen's ability to quickly learn and understand the energy circulation and pain threshold spots in her client's body and you'll begin to see why Marlen is exceptional. This exceptional talent and knowledge will push a person to the front of their profession. But I'm convinced what separates Marlen from leading therapists is a gift of both perception and intuition. Her ability to perceive through touch, what your body needs is pure unadulterated art. Because of the fibro, my body is ultra-sensitive. But there are times when it needs deeper massage work. I'm not consciously aware of this and if I was I wouldn't think deeper work would be appropriate. But Marlen knows. I've never felt pain when she's gone there. I'm trying my best to articulate this but in all reality this experience defies description. Marlen has another gift. As a spa owner, she has continuously surrounded herself with intelligent and caring professionals. Finally, aside from Marlen's talent, knowledge, gifts and entrepreneurial acumen, she is a kind-hearted, warm and friendly person. Her spirit is even better!
Great place to train, best trainer in the business.
My name is Pam and I'm a 59 year old woman who is here today because of Christ' hand on my life and the people He has brought into my life. There is no doubt in my mind that the Good Lord brought Cheryl Salto, my Life/Faith Coach, into my life. Our first meeting was over five years ago, and at that time I was very depressed and emotionally beaten down. My life's circumstances and situation left me feeling very much alone and hopeless. Cheryl's skills, insight, compassion, wisdom and most of all her heart saw me through the darkest, loneliest time of my life. Months of learning how to set boundaries, reprogramming my backwards and negative thoughts, building a new chapter in my life, learning God's Word pertaining to me and realizing I needed to take care of myself, was spent with this amazing woman. She was patient, filled with acceptance, listened and validated what I had to say and always made me feel comfortable and loved. Her dedication to reaching others who are hurting, and helping them goes beyond anything I've ever seen. Her empathy is God sent and anyone who is blessed to be a recipient of her gifts is truly blessed beyond measure. I have had two children who have fought depression, anxiety, drug addiction and suicidal issues along with an alcoholic husband of the past 30 years. I have seen over 30 professional psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors and counselors for myself and my family. From my experience, I can honestly tell you, it's like 'finding a needle in a haystack' a professional who genuinely cares and who can help. I exhausted all medical fields from every direction and they did more damage to our family than good. Now, I know there are good doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists and counselors in the field, I am just rendering my opinion of what my experience has been. I was forced by a friend to see Cheryl and very reluctantly went to our first appointment. It was God from the start because I know without a doubt He sent me to Cheryl. She received me with so much acceptance and love that I knew I was on the road to recovery and healing. With God's hand and Cheryl's gifts I learned to love myself again, forgive others, most importantly forgive myself, set boundaries and start living again with joy in my heart. I'm still on the journey but now I have tools that will help see me through whatever life brings. Since I stopped seeing Cheryl my beloved dog passed away, my dad whom I cared for over 6 months passed away, and my husband died unexpectantly in the year 2016. Cheryl stood by me and walked with me through ALL of it. Those who have lost loved ones, know how friends and family become scarce when it comes to death. Not so with Cheryl Salto! She pressed in, met me where I felt the pain, extended tenderness and care so I could survive the pain. When my life and heart were shattered she helped me keep my heart open in the midst of the nightmare and taught me not to lose sight of loving and living again. She was so supportive, always making me feel comfortable and 'normal', no matter what my state of mind was. She stood by me while I acknowledged my own broken heart with a sense of respect and reverence that honored my 'reality'. She was one of the rare ones that allowed me to be seen and heard, always meeting me in my pain, never denying what I was feeling but supporting me, validating my emotions and giving me breathing room to what I found wholly unbearable. Cheryl helped me to be brave. To wake up each day when I really didn't want to. To feel my pain, experience it and acknowledge it. She let me pour my heart out when it was shattered into a million different pieces and I knew it could never be made right again. Cheryl is an amazing life coach because she allowed me to be me, right where I was, in the middle of the pain. She never tried to force any 'stages' or time lines on me. She didn't dismiss me or walk away. I've learned from Cheryl, and my experience, that grief is as individual as love: every life, every path, every experience, is unique. Cheryl helped me get through many dark times in my life. She has amazing gifts of empathy and love for the hurting. She is truly a 'golden nugget' in the sea of pebbles! In many ways she saved my life and put hope back in my heart. My journey is far from over but I will be forever and eternally grateful to this wonderful woman. How do you say 'thank you' to someone who helped you breathe again and give you your life back? I guess you could say I found 'the needle in the haystack'!!! Thank you Lord for bringing this woman, Cherly Salto, into my life. To You God, be the glory and honor! Amen
Rob's energy and passion for what he does are clear right away. He always has a positive outlook and will help you find the silver lining in every situation. When I first spoke with him, I was having some trouble being underappreciated at work. Rob offered sound advice and was always there for me when I needed him. Highly recommend Rob as a life and business coach, motivational speaker and all of the above!
Jim knows this profession. He coaches his daughter's lacrosse, HS football and plays sports including softball & golf. He's worked to ready me for ski season and now softball & golf. He keeps me focused & is easy to engage.
I highly recommend Victoria, not only as a personal trainer but also as a health coach. She was able to help me build strength, increase my flexibily, and introduce me to yoga and the amazing benefits it creates for my body. Every workout we did together was different and exciting. She incorporates boxing, sprinting, and plyometrics. I am a physical therapist and looking for motivation- I got that and MORE from Victoria. Not to mention, her personality is amazing! She is very supportive and positive but she will also push you as hard as you want to be pushed! Love her!
I had interviewed two other fitness coaches before Gena and what I loved about Gena from the start was her willingness to listen and customize a plan based on my personal needs, circumstances and abilities. She coaches, encourages, checks in and keeps the experience positive providing the little extra push needed to stay focused on fitness goals that can easily be compromised with a busy to-do list.
I worked closely with Nicholas for life coaching for over a year now and I couldn't be happier. He is a phenomenal speaker and wonderful mentor who has an innate ability to track your negative thoughts and emotions and turn your mental state around to a more positive one. Because of him, I am now pursuing full recovery with my eating disorder, have now fully embraced my hearing disability, and am now helping other women learn to love themselves and recognize their worth. I also recently hired Nicholas as my personal service dog trainer (talk about a multi-faceted individual!), and he has quickly established a wonderful, respectable, and loving relationship with my dog. Nicholas exhibits patience, professionalism, and quality in his work. Don't miss out on working with this amazing individual!
We've been seeing Dick for couples counseling for a little under two years. He helped my husband and I threw a very difficult time in our marriage and gave us some great tools to countinue to have a successful marriage.
Marc has been wonderful for my teen son! Glad he enjoys going to meet and seems to be a more positive impact than dwelling on negativity in a therapist office.
I have been an acupuncture patient of Marisa's for many years, so I knew she was studying to become a Life Coach. I had been to a Life Coach years before and didn't really get anything out of it, just lots of money wasted. Marisa gave me a free "practice" session (as she put it) and - wow! It was only about 10 minutes into the session when she pinpointed the areas I needed to focus on and then came up with ideas on how to handle them - all in a half hour! She knows her stuff and can accomplish in a short time what it would take others weeks to do! Give her a try, its worth it!
I was ready to honestly look at/into myself. I knew I had something(s) blocking my full potential. I was determined to untangle all the experiences and complications and learned emotional reactions that were limiting and in some ways paralyzing me. I wanted to be the best me possible. If you are ready to live in truth, Judy Silvan is the perfect guide for that expedition into yourself. -Joseph, 11/15/2015.
Tori does such a great job of listening and presenting information in a way that is calming and comforting. She has really helped me get to a place with myself where I understand my values and how the importance of those values impact my responses to various situations. Working with her was invaluable and the fact that I can reach out and she is always willing to help is reassuring.
I worked with Jonathan Wolf for a little over a year and found the experience to be incredibly helpful. Jonathan was very available outside of set meeting times as well as immensely supportive. I would highly recommend Youtime Coaching to anyone seeking these kinds of services
Charles helped me to write a resume that I used to find summer internship in investment banking and consulting. I landed multiple first-round interviews and he even coached me through the the interview process. Thanks Charles!
My coaching sessions started with Matt when I was thinking about going back to school for a degree in cello performance. I took a look at the tuition prices at all the nearby conservatories and realized I could save many thousands of dollars by putting together my own educational program. I asked Matt to help me with this process, and he has been awesome. He has provided friendly but firm encouragement through the whole process of clarifying my goals, setting my priorities, and taking specific steps towards accomplishing what I want to accomplish. I have never felt so disciplined and motivated about my cello playing, and it feels great. I cant recommend Matt enough.
As a person who has read a lot of self-help books and been unsuccessful in making change, I am the perfect person to share that Francesca's life-coaching is extremely powerful and effective. Her one-on-one coaching has helped me bring about desired transformations in my life, and I highly recommend her!
