Recently I hired Ken to develop a resume that will allow me to position myself for greater opportunities. Not only was Ken able to showcase my skills, but he also served as a career coach. I believe his help and guidance will help me land the right opportunity in my field of expertise. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone looking for guidance.
Ian did an excellent job! I am mid-life in career and needed someone to update my resume. Ian combined all of my work experience, updated my layout and advised me on what content was important. I was proud of my resume after Ian completed it. Resumes are so important and I couldn't have trusted it with anyone better. Ian offers other services, as well. I will be utilizing every resource that Ian can offer. He's intelligent, strategic and, above all, an honest & interesting guy. Thank you, Ian.
I want to give Jim McCoy TEN stars for the work we've done together -- and I do mean together. I have worked hard for what Jim calls "confidence through clarity." What does that mean? I asked Jim to work with me on weight issues. Over the course of several months, he helped me clarify my thinking about my weight and put it into the context of my life. I began to focus on what would make me happy in my life, and the weight became a secondary (yet still paramount) issue that began to come clear and take care of itself as I put together a game plan for my overall happiness, I didn't understand what a life coach DID until I began to work with Jim. Through our weekly telephone talks (we don't live in the same city), he helped me create a long-term, sustainable lifestyle plan that includes eating and moving -- and many other things necessary to my overall happiness. I am optimizing my strengths, tweaking my plan as I learn more about what I need and want, finding best strategies to support my lifestyle changes, and becoming more and more self-aware of how I sabotaged myself in the past, and how I can optimize my life today. I look better, I feel better, and I'm taking better care of myself. My clothes fit! Thank you, Jim. Thank you for believing in me and helping me learn to believe in myself.
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 hired Lisa for life coaching. I needed help to lose 50 pounds, had no motivation. She was great! Really positive, very knowledgeable and stayed with me the entire time until I reached my goal. I refer her to friends for coaching.

In order to bring the greatest benefits to my clients, I incorporate a holistic and comprehensive approach to developing a process that meets your individuals needs. We are all multi-faceted people, working to find balance within the many roles that we fulfill in our lives. While I understand that we often find ourselves feeling as if our lives are stretched so thin that we cannot find that balance necessary to find an easeful life, I’m here to reassure you that not only is it possible to obtain, but you also have all the necessary tools inside of you to be able to do just that! I would be honored to be of service to you as you navigate your personal journey through the many challenges of life. I will work collaboratively with you to identify what makes you “sing!” Then offer the support necessary to align your actions to that passion to create a meaningful and purposeful life for yourself. I provide a professional, safe, non-judgmental, and nurturing environment to encourage your growth. I’ve helped hundreds of people by offering a unique, personalized approach for health, vitality and happiness. I operate from a sense of compassion and empathy and am willing to share strategies for helping you to live in peace and gratitude. Sessions feature a comprehensive and holistic approach combining mind-body-spirit. They may feature a life wellness evaluation, wellness/life coaching, counseling, spiritual coaching, affirmation therapy, guided imagery meditations, mindfulness teachings, yoga, and positive psychology techniques. I will work together with you to create a individualized plan that will enable you to be the best possible version of you! I was recently featured in the October 2017 Boston Magazine health section!

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.
Marc is very passionate about his work. He truly cares about helping people. He always goes over and above what is expected from him on each of our sessions. I really appreciate the fact that he does not end the call until we are done even if it is over the time limit. This shows dedication and a true love of his work. This and the fact that he is so willing to help makes him truly the best coach I have worked with and the most authentic. After one session with Marc you can tell he is the real deal. This is his lifes calling and it really shows in how much he cares and how real he is during our conversations. If you want someone who is honest and speaks his mind, Marc is for you. I highly recommend him as a life coach to anyone. I have only had 6 sessions with Marc and I have seen a difference in my perspective on life. I am still not where I want to be but that is because this kind of change takes time. I still have more work to do with Marc. I plan to continue working with him and look forward to each session. Thank you Marc for your patience and perseverance with me.
Athena has a rare gift to see a person for their true self. Her compassion, her commitment to others and her vulnerability to continue her own growth make her a genuine and gifted coach to others. She is a true blessing!
As a transitioning vegan, I had a hard time finding a coach that would respect my lifestyle choice of going vegan. Anima Naturals took their time to find out what's important to me and what my goals are. Anima Naturals did not just give me any kind of meal plan, but one that was unique to my age, height, weight and current health state. Being a mother of three, working full-time and being in school, having an idea of what to cook that is quick, easy, and healthy was another challenge for me. Ordering out was always my family and I go too. This new meal plan takes the guesswork out of "what's for dinner." Anima Naturals, thank you for help my family and I on our journey to becoming the best versions of ourselves.
Janet cared for my daughter when she was an infant until she was two and I cannot say enough about having her in my life at that time. She was one of my main resources as a first time mom. Not to mention I felt like my daughter could not have been in better hands. While working with Janet other mothers and I had a chance to form relationships as we got together as groups when we could, I always enjoyed this . Most of the time we sat and had discussions about our lives,kids,husbands,roles as mothers and wives etc. It was comforting to know I was not alone in the many challenges as I faced and I truly believe helped during an important time in my life.
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.
Testimonial: Individual Therapy A bit less than a year ago, following a series of unfortunate events in my life, I had reached a really low point. Emotionally, mentally and physically drained, I knew that I needed to find the strength to continue living, and out of sheer desperation, I finally reached out to Rita, It was the best decision I ever made. Over the past 10 months, she has helped me experience growth that for me was unimaginable. In a loving and compassionate manner, she has helped me to identify both the destructive behavior patterns that led to my subsequent bouts of depression as well as the traumatic events and family history that contributed to the creation of these destructive patterns. Most importantly, she has taught me how to change these destructive patterns and replace them with positive, healthy, self-affirming ones. In less than a year, Rita has positively influenced almost every aspect of my life. I am learning to identify and arrest addictive behaviors, replace negative thought patterns with positive self-talk and eliminate unhealthy behaviors and toxic people from my life. I am practicing self-love and becoming my best self. As a result, my marriage and family relationships have improved and my career continues to blossom. I have lost over 45 pounds and I am finally learning what it means to be truly happy, healthy and whole -- mind, body and spirit. I am learning to clearly identify my goals and attain them. I totally attribute my growth to working with Rita. There is an old saying: The sick mind doesnt know that its sick. Whether it is in your personal or professional life, Rita's incredible talent lies in her ability to assist you with identifying (and sometimes just acknowledging) the source of your pain or whatever it is that may be holding you back. More importantly, she accompanies you on the path of self-healing, and provides the tools necessary to complete the journey. That is Ritas gift to her clients. It is a gift that is priceless. --Anonymous in Massachusetts
I came to work with Susan when I was looking for the courage to end a relationship. She helped me with great skill and compassion, providing feedback that gave me the confidence I needed to make the break, and also learn and heal from the experience. I have continued to work with her on less urgent but equally important topics in my life, as her breadth of experience and range of both coaching and therapeutic tools offer me key insights every session.
I connected with Michelle (at Create Honesty) via thumbtack for my Interview coaching for pharmaceutical jobs. I have to say that Michelle did a phenomenal job in preparing me for my face to face interview. I took 3 sessions with her and each session was so focused with the objectives for improving and making me confident for the interview. She spent extra time understanding my strengths & weaknesses and prepared a goal plan for me and steps to achieve it, which helped me a lot. She also guided me on how to answer some tricky/challenging questions during interviews. She is a very flexible person and can do sessions either telephonic, Skype or meeting face to face as per your preference. I will definitely work with her in future if needed and will recommend her for interview coaching. Thanks a lot Michelle.......
Kim is amazing. She helped me take a moment to step back and be able to monitor my food intake and understand what food triggers impacted me. Kim is always available for a call, text or email. With a busy lifestyle, Kim made me remember that I am a priority and need to take care of myself. She asks questions that makes you think and analyze what we consider day to day habits and what you can change. Kim worked with me for shared decisions and what worked for me specifically. I highly recommend anyone having challenges to work with Kim. She is a great support person that will help you make changes that you need.
Anissa's professional leadership and guidance has assisted me tremendously in navigating my career transition. Her ability to really listen and extract information from me without my even knowing its happening was masterful. Anissa was great at helping me to identify my strengths and how best to market them, as well as understand areas that I need to improve and tools to hone those skills. When you reach a certain level in your career you think don't really need a career coach, but Anissa helped changed my perspective. Regardless of the milestones I've reached, I now know how invaluable talking to a professional like Anissa is to my career. I am very much energized and ready to reach the next leadership rung on my ladder! Thank you Anissa!
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.
