Deb is an exceptional career coach (and exceptional human being). When I was out of work and professionally disoriented, Deb came to the rescue. By engaging me in thoughtful discussion of my core values, skills and experience, she guided me to reformulate my personal narrative and helped me articulate my professional goals. In supporting me in the development and implementation of customized job-search strategies, I found the confidence and determination to find the job I truly wanted. She was the mirror I needed to discover who I wanted to become. I could not recommend her more highly.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Jim McCoy. I started working with him a year and a half ago (when I was in major crisis mode). He's intelligent, funny, and incredibly compassionate. I've had more growth with him than I did after a few years with my Boston-based psychiatrist. His method works for me because he does more than simply mirror my feelings -- He actually gives me his opinion when I ask for it. He's helped me gain confidence and direction. He always makes himself available to talk and never makes me feel like it's a chore. I HIGHLY recommend him as a life coach. He'll change your world!

Marlen is an outstanding massage therapist whom I have known for several years. From playing tennis, I had extreme tightness in my hips and IT band and Marlen worked hard to release the tightness in those muscles so I could continue playing. Marlen kept me on the courts! She asks your areas of concern and concentrates on those ~ so many therapists decide what you need without listening to your concerns. I would highly recommend Marlen to anyone who wants improved health and fitness.

I started learning from Greg 30 years ago. I can look back now and see the tremendous positive impact his lesson have had on my career and my success. I have at least 20 friends and referrals who would say the same. I still use what I learned every day.

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!

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 have been working with Mike for several years. Originally my intention was to help with specific goals. it has developed into a much richer relationship. We cover the gamut of personal and professional subjects We speak on the phone which makes it very convenient. Mike is a great active listener. I always feel that he understands where my had is at. I always feel more positive after our talk. There are times where he pushes you to get to a deeper level of understanding. He is successful at this despite the one dimensionality of the phone.

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!

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.

Amy is both approachable and relatable, while maintaining her professionalism. She listens well and allows you to guide your progress, while holding you accountable. She calls you out when necessary, but always does so in a respectful and kind manner. You feel like you're speaking to a friend rather than a coach. She's not afraid to laugh with you, while helping you get in tune with what's most important to you and who you are at the core. You feel like you're constantly growing, making realizations you wouldn't have made on your own, and making progress. Amy seems to truly care about you as a person.

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!

Beth is an extremely intuitive coach. She simply feels into my energy and knows what’s going on for me before I even know myself. I’ve seen her use this technique effectively with other people. Week after week, Beth helped me see things about myself and my work that were changing, evolving and improving. These were all things I hadn’t seen for myself, but they became apparent to me once she pointed them out. Beth is kind, caring and compassionate and at the same time, extremely empowering. She’ll get you jump started when you need that and will remind you to be kind to yourself and take a break when necessary. I highly recommend Beth as a coach. Corinne C, Revere, MA

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.

About

Be your own hero. Hero (noun) is a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. "You're my hero -- me to everyone, all the time!" I'm so fortunate to spend my time surrounded by amazing humans. I'm in awe of their strength, their courage, and their awesomeness. Even when I'm not with them, I turn on the TV, scroll through Twitter or walk down the street and suddenly, I'm in awe of complete strangers (and animals with social media accounts). Seriously, humans (and Internet quadrupeds) are so cool! We live in a world chock full of heroes -- living beings that inspire us, and that we believe are worthy of our respect and total admiration, but, here's the thing. This constant focus on the heroism of others distracts us from our inner hero -- our strength, our courage, and our awesomeness. I mean, look at that cool thing that guy did! How dare we think we can do that? How dare we admit to ourselves that we are worthy of a hero status? Look at all this proof we've collected to explain why we're not cool/smart/rich/creative enough to do the things we want to do and be the people we want to be. Why should we even bother? We're not as cool as Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and we never will be! Wah! Lies. The truth is this: We're all heroes to someone, and we really need to start being heroes to ourselves. Let's all put on our big-girl/-boy pants, tie our capes, and soar.

About

I motivate others to be the best they can be. I give life tools and skills to cope with loss and suffering, bullying and stressful situations to help the cope in a positive way. The three main goals I want someone to learn about themselves is what I learned from life, such as the following: * Treat others how you want to be treated * Love yourself * Accept your erroneous zones and learn from them and move forward in life The main idea of Mathenia's Positive Corner is sometimes life will bring you to a halt, and you have to be the one to say "enough is enough" to truly make a positive change in your life.
