David was an excellent coach! I can't recommend him enough. I met him through my work at the time and while he was brought on by the company, he never let that determine the quality of work he put into me personally. I never felt like he was working for "the man," but rather, he was truly interested in helping me as an individual. I grew exponentially under his guidance and still recall all I learned from him after moving on to a different career. I'm also impressed that David still keeps in touch and offers assistance, which is beyond the scope of his work. A simple, "I hope you're doing well!" is really appreciated from someone who could simply pass me off as a previous client. Instead, David is all about relationships and creating lifelong connections and that really goes a long way.
I found Brooke while going through a challenging time in my life that resulted in symptoms of anxiety. I had never worked with a therapist before, so I was unsure what to expect going in. Brooke provided a comfortable atmosphere that gave me the space needed to grow and see my life in a new light. Her guidance and support has had a profound impact on my family's happiness. We are truly grateful for her help!
Working with Jenn has shown me what having an insightful and empathetic but objective sounding board and guide can do: it has given me more compassion for myself and others, a clearer understanding of who I am and what I'm doing, and the tools to make my life a better place to be. Her guidance is smart, practical, and actionable. And I'm so glad I found her :)
Katherine is an excellent life and business coach/mentor not just because she's good at what she does but because she genuinely cares and wants to see people succeed. Her encouragement and realness is what I admire most and I look forward to seeing her talent expand in her own career and in others esp mine.
Jessica does a fantastic job of helping those in need of assistance when it comes to career counseling. Whether guidance with job searches, or looking over a resume or giving advice on interviewing skills, she approaches each task with knowledge and professionalism that allows whoever she is working with to feel confident in their newly acquired skills. Thinking back over my experience with her I can honestly say that there is nothing I would improve, not to say she is perfect, but at least during our interaction she was exemplary.
She made me very at ease immediately. Very nice to talk to...good sense of humor. She doesn't hold back on bad news which is a good thing. Didn't tell me what I wanted to hear but had good things to say about the future. Looking to see if what she told me comes true......but a very nice and kind lady. If she's accurate I will definitely use her again.
Mrs. Goodfellow is passionate about helping others find a career that fits not only their skill sets, but also their passion. She is organized, proficient, and professional. She has a wealth of resources when it comes to assisting with job searches from resume and cover letter revising and/or writing, role playing interviewing techniques, to helping make industry contacts for the job of your dreams. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking at a career change or upgrade. I have also personally recommended her College Consulting services to friends with high school students. Mrs. Goodfellow has a vast wealth of knowledge when it comes to the college admission process (including scholarships, finding the right college for you and/or your child's needs, essay writing at it's finest, etc). I know, she will be my first call when my children hit that age!
Felicia and I met about 1 year ago. I was trying to make a decision on pursuing my dreams or stay within my current career. She allowed me to share the pros and cons if being an entrepreneur vs working for company. I did a visualization of how it would feel to actually wake up each morning and design my life. I wrote in my journal my ideal day from sun up to sun down, as well how it felt. I then did a vision board within my journal showing my ideal lifestyle. She truly opened my eyes up to the possibilities of what the Universe can bring into your life. I now have my own Health & Wellness business that is thriving, and I am so happy to wake up each morning feeling excited and renewedm Thank YOU, Felicia!

Jennifer is an excellent listener. She provided extremely useful guidance to help me come up with a strategy for handling my issues.
Switching career industries is never an easy task and getting your foot in the door is among the hardest things to accomplish. So reaching out to Constance was a no brainer when I began my search. After consulting with her regarding my ideal position, experience and education, she aptly began restructuring my resume and editing my cover letters. She delved into areas I considered menial and explained their value and why I should highlight these areas on my resume. Once my resume was complete, she then expanded my job search, careers I initially did not consider, were now exciting and attainable opportunities. After applying to positions selected from my curated job list, I was invited to interview with great prospective organizations. Although I did not switch industries (due to an amazing promotion with my current company) I have and will continue to recommend C4 services to anyone in need of career advice.
Valerie has helped me become more empowered and focused in my career development goals. She doesn’t provide me with answers and solutions, but rather she assisted me with crafting my own action steps to help unlock the solutions that lay dormant inside of me. She serves as a guide on my journey of self-actualization.

Heather has been my nutrition and wellness coach for almost two months now. Under her excellent and caring guidance, I have changed my eating habits from processed junk to whole, nutritious, delicious food that satisfies and energizes me. She has helped me work around my picky preferences and emotional issues with by continuing to try new suggestions until I felt comfortable with everything. Her process encompass more than just food; she's totally revitalized my views on exercise, taking time for myself, and keeping positive. If you are working through a complex maze of emotional, health, and nutritional issues, I highly recommend her guidance.

Example Of Recent Endorsement: As a mom, a wife and business owner, I am pulled in many different directions on a daily basis. I was helping my Clients, marketing my law firm, arranging my work schedule to be able to volunteer at my daughter's school and trying to be a good wife. I never put myself first in any day. If I did, I felt guilty that someone else was needing me and I was saying no to that person to say yes to myself. Andy helped me put my life into perspective. He really challenged me to come to terms with it being ok to still have a successful law firm, still be a great mom and wife, but still put me first and not feel wrong about doing that. Andy did not have an easy client admittedly. But he had the patience, compassion and understood why I felt that way. In the process, my Firm has become even more successful, yet I have been able to take more time for myself. I wholeheartedly recommend Andy and would encourage others to reach out to him as well
