I spoke to many life coaches during my search for a coach, before I talked to Marc, and even during my first phone conversation with him, I knew he was the one I was going to choose. This is because of his startling directness. He was unique and the insights he shared with me on his interpretation of my behavior were profound and I left our first conversation with a different perspective. He put a lot of effort into contacting me via different avenues (phone, email, and other websites). Then when I was dragging my feet on filling out the paperwork he sent me and didn't complete it by the time I had said I would, he surprised me by telling me that he was disappointed and used it as the first lesson in accountability and respectng others' time. He said that if I'm looking for a "comfortable" coach, he isn't the one for me. However, after I learned Marc's style, I do feel very comfortable with sharing things with him and getting his advice. He isn't like other coaches in that you feel your sessions are very tailored specifically to what you want them to be about. He doesn't let you ramble on about the problem or 'how that makes you feel' but keeps the conversations focused to make the most out of every session. He has flexibility about whether sessions are done in person or on the phone but he does encourage meeting in person every couple weeks. His price is very affordable for the personalized and effective work he does. I recommend Marc to anyone who is ready to see themselves for who they really are and make changes to a better life with more clarity. See Marc before you go to spend time and money on a psychotherapist or counselor too!

About two months away from our wedding day in 2015, my wife (fiancée at that time) and I were grateful to be introduced to Alain and Danielle by a church friend as our wedding counselor. They are a wonderful couple most importantly; because, their teaching are very transparent and practical. It is obvious that Alain and Danielle are Men and woman of God. During the weekly counseling sessions, every time we walked out of the office, Nephthalie and I have learned so much; our perception of relationship specifically in marriage was revealed. Now, it has been seven months since Nephthalie and I got married. We applied those principle on a daily basis. The sessions were very significant. From the teaching received, we have the magic key needed to solve any problem for a successful marriage. We highly recommend them if you are looking for a marital or relationship counselor.

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
