Life Coaching

It was a pleasure working with Glenda . Even though our sessions were not face to face and through video I could still feel her warm welcoming energy. Glenda takes her time and listens very well. She also ask you thought provoking questions. So be prepared and open to the process. She has helped me with lowering my anxiety, self appreciation and focus. It felt so good to have the support of Glenda. I also much appreciated her summary of our sessions. It helps you to remember and see the areas your doing well and the areas you can work on. Glenda was always prepared and I had an Excellent experience. Thank you

Meeting Glenda was a divine connection. She is warm and very pleasant to speak with. I truly look forward to our conversations every week. She was there in my moments of anxiousness and despair. There were many times I felt I did not have the answer, but her patience and questions helped me reflect, emerging answers that were within me all the time. One of my favorite words from her sessions was excavating. When I first met with her, I kept saying I felt stuck with no direction. In excavating, she helped me to dive into my life experiences discovering where most of my traumas began. This was a huge aid in my healing process. She was also very instrumental in me discovering my strengths and lesser strengths creating balance that serves and empowers me. Glenda was very influential in offering me tools that support me when I am having internal battles with myself. Again, I have to say I looked forward to my sessions. It did not matter what mindset I came into the session with. I always left feeling empowered, laughing, and smiling. Thank you Glenda for sharing your time with me. I have made so many positive changes in my life. I excitedly look forward to starting our new session.

I cannot describe the words how much I appreciate Miss Glenda's session. She made me dig deep within myself to understand my own worth. that was laying deep inside me. Ms. Glenda makes sure that you do the work. she does not give you the answer so easily. but once you start doing the work, you really discovered your best quality about yourself. Once, Ms. Glenda, guides and helps you through the process, you honestly get gratification from these sessions. This was the best session I had in years. I am so honored to be a part of this journey and cannot wait for more sessions in the future.

Glenda is very soft spoken, makes you feel heard and really tries to get to know you. Her technique helps you figure out what you need to do. She doesn’t tell you what to do, she asks you questions and as you think of the answers, you get those “aha” moments and realize what your next step is. She’s very patient and explains things thoroughly. You start seeing yourself in a different and better light. She’s a joy to work with. More like a professional friend that wants the best for you

I thoroughly enjoyed my session and look forward to my future sessions. Glenda made me feel comfortable and safe enough to disclose my feelings and emotions. She gave me so much clarity and guidance, that i would not have had otherwise. Before speaking to Glenda, i was so stressed and worried it had even taken a toll on my health. After our session our for clarity and growth, it was almost as is a weight had been lifted from my chest. I look forward to speaking to my dear friend Glenda again.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    To honor social distancing protocols, coaching sessions are exclusively offered remotely. Sessions are typically one-hour long. I offer either 3-month or 6-month packages to meet your needs and budget as well as a variety of payment options and methods. For full disclosure of prices, packages, and payment options, I encourage you to visit my website and select the “Life Coaching” menu option for details. I am also available for a 15-minute complimentary consultation, for which you can also sign-up on my website.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Here’s how we’ll start: We can schedule a complimentary 30-minute session or you can begin by completing an Intake form, both of which you can do on my website or by contacting me directly. Once you've submitted the Intake form, we'll have a focused conversation to identify your needs/goals, discuss fees and payments, establish a schedule, and address any of your concerns. The next step is to actually begin what we hope will become a productive coaching partnership. Since effective coaching is based on a solid relationship, our first meeting will be a longer session to help us get to know each other. Then we’ll take adequate time to clarify the goals you’d like to work on, review the Welcome Packet especially the Coaching Agreement, and spend the remainder of our session engaging in coaching towards realizing your goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a professional certified coach, having earned my certification from the International Coach Academy (ICA), an accredited training program affiliated with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the goal standard in professional coaching. In addition, as an empowerment coach, my mission is to power my client' greatness to more fully reveal the gift of who they are. The principle of empowerment has been foundational in my own life and indeed, in my esteemed career as a NYC public school educator and math consultant of 25 years. These professional roles afforded me critical opportunities to “sharpen the saw”—refine my skill sets in facilitation and communication, especially “crucial conversations,” to unearth both student and teachers’ needs, challenges, belief systems, mindsets, and attitudes that impacted the work of teaching and learning. I bring to bear all these experiences and skill sets, along with my coaching training, in my engagement with clients.
