"Judy is an exceptional life coach. Too many in the coaching field couch and cover their work in hopes of not giving too much of their work away without compensation. Judy does not withhold her knowledge or expertise from those she serves. Her training, insight and experience is evident from the moment she begins engaging with you. Her listening skills are apparent. The questions she asks of you are structured to stimulate your thinking. Judy is a unique Life and Career coach. She belongs on your team as you transition and transform your own life and career objectives."

Tom has shown that he genuinely cares about how, when, and if I progress. He is invested in whether I actually achieve breakthroughs toward my personal success. Considering that my goals are so immense: to metamorphosize an ashamed, unhappy, ineffective, & lonely guy, with limited professional influence, into a proud, happy, effective, socially fulfilled, & profoundly influential version of myself, it would have been easy for him to give up on me. Even though I'm confident many life coaches in his position would have terminated our relationship months ago, dealing with such a high-maintenance client as myself - expressing to him hundreds of suggestions / criticisms / requests, expecting a personalized experience that caters to my individual needs, and offering frequent pessimism or guarded skepticism at best - he has been patient, flexible, & determined to support my progress. It has been several months since Tom started coaching me, and I have consciously delayed writing a review until I might have a sense not just that he cares and won't give up (after all, that's part of the job description), but that he will actually help me transform myself, in ways that countless others haven't. I have worked with therapist after therapist for years & years, undergone treatment with psychiatrists, hired dozens of countless project collaborators and personal assistants, and tried more times than I can remember to count on the support of family and friends in order to help me make the steady progress needed to break out of a deep debilitating personal rut that has lasted for decades. All of the above have been unsuccessful. I naturally wasn't expecting Tom to be any different. But I gave him a shot, deciding that I deserved a chance for renewed hope. I almost gave up on him and on myself, but he didn't give up on either. And finally, after months of 'blood, sweat, and tears,' I have come to believe there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to make steady transformative progress, and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. Prerequisites for success: I have to be patient, make a few reasonable leaps of faith, and make an investment in my future, emotionally and financially. I also have to be an active participant and be willing to gradually take the reins myself. I finally have to accept his limitations, while recognizing and counting on his strengths. His limitations: Tom is not a miracle worker, and in comparison to others I've worked with, he's not the most charismatic, inspiring, eloquent, forward, original, perceptive, intellectual, tech-savvy, exciting, or assertive. But his STRENGTHS far outweigh these limitations: He is persistent in his efforts. He is determined to be an ally on the road to victory, offering extra support when needed, never conceding defeat. He is compassionate, showing empathy for my experiences & struggles, frustrations and pain, & and my initial often-pessimistic attitude. He is patient, and will put in the time to understand, listen, and reevaluate / regroup when necessary. He is humble and modest, not expecting recognition, praise, notoriety, credit, or gratitude for going above and beyond. He is affordable, & ends up charging far less money than he could for his time, and far less than any of the other life coaches I considered, let alone being a mere fraction of the cost of a therapist or psychiatrist! He is respectful, as a friend would be, but sensitive & honors any boundaries I set. He never speaks down to me. He is honest, and when requested, very candid about what he thinks needs improvement, more, focus, or a shift in perception. He doesn’t rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though I’m a source of income, but always treats me like a person who deserves to achieve his dreams. He is passionate about helping people. He works very hard, often going above and beyond what others would do, putting his clients ahead of his personal life. He is fair, respects agreements, honors his word, readily forgives, and shows lenience. He is creative, willing to try to approach problems from new perspectives and angles. He is open-minded, willing to work with approaches and systems he’s unfamiliar with that I know are likely to be effective. He is trusting, and gives me the benefit of the doubt, while also helping me to become more accountable. He is reliable, and I have been able to count on him in ways I couldn’t count on therapists, employees, mentors, friends, & family. His system of "open access" helps me throughout the week, and this unique system of coaching has been the key to my success, helping me beat procrastination and not lose sight of my goals. He is flexible, & accommodates limitations, changes, and conflicts with my schedule, deficiencies in my attitude, and treats my perceived failures like learning opportunities to take a new, more promising approach. He is resilient, and puts up with much more than necessary for someone in his position, and never complained once to me about it. Finally, he is kind, complimentary, and friendly. He's like that 'conscience on your shoulder.' I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring a life coach, or to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams they know they deserve to and could achieve, but haven't. Thank you, Tom, for your efforts, and quality work :)

Cross training with Karl has taken my body to the next level. My strength and endurance levels increased tremendously. Not only did I lose weight, I feel my strongest ever. I couldn't even do regular push ups before! Karl's workouts are both fun and challenging so your body never gets bored. If you want to take your fitness to the next level and get your best body ever, I highly recommend Coaching by Karl.

Justin is a true pro. Very valuable coaching in preparation for a business presentation I was giving. He asked good questions to understand the context of the situation and tailored his coaching to that specific opportunity. Great insights on the importance of the physical/mental connection needed to help make a successful speech. Always on time. I highly recommend Justin to any interested in improving their public speaking skills.

Kevin Burns has a depth of knowledge, compassion and understanding that I haven’t seen and or experienced in a long time. He gave me lots of personal advice to help me get “unstuck” at a time I needed it most. With his advice I was able to turn things around. His words came from a deep place and has helped me “change course” in many areas of my life. He’s warm and very professional and has a good heart. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking assistance. He’s an amazing ‘Life Coach’ ...Keith Gitens

Dreanne was AMAZING to work with!! He went above and beyond to make the visuals come to life. Went out of his way to bring me the right props, even thought it was not a part of the deal. My friends had a great time on the shoot. They loved him so much that they want to see him every time they go to the city. I can not say enough great things about him. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was initially skeptical about "life" coaching. Why would I need it if everything seemed “ok"? On my journey with Eli I discovered that “ok” is acceptable, but abundance is a conscious choice and there for the taking - if I wanted it. And not only did I want it - I found it. Eli is incredibly smart and intuitive, creative and able to think out of the box yet very structured in his approach. I felt his experience in professional sports was unusual and refreshing- and greatly benefitted our interaction. I liked the elegance of his thinking process, his flexibility and his ability to listen and ask the right questions. Many times over, he challenged me to think outside of my comfort zone. Identifying and addressing certain issues and hence developing strategies together was an amazing process which made me feel empowered and in control.

There was an instant comfort I felt with Judy. I had never gone to therapy before and she put me at ease almost instantly. I started having sessions with her at a really difficult time in my professional career, and there were times when I thought I was doing everything I could, but she helped me realize there were more options and other avenues of achieving my goals that I hadn't even explored. Our sessions together really helped me through some very dark times in my life and when I couldn't afford therapy anymore after I lost my job and health insurance plan, she continued to send me text messages just to make sure I was doing ok. She is incredibly thoughtful and has given me valuable tools for handling anxiety and difficult work relationships.

Rick makes an invaluable asset in my life. I am in my 70s and he keeps me young and aware of the universe. I never stop learning. He teaches me mindfulness so that I keep aware of my health and the threats I can sometimes open the door to, through pre-occupations with family. He reminds me of my own value system so that I stay true to it and behave in a manner that is consistent with those beliefs. Therefore, I’m always growing. He has the ability to analyze situations in practical ways as well. But his most distinguishing characteristic is his empathy. I think this also comes from his diverse background that is such an asset in his work. One knows he’s lived it! So, he can offer many solutions. He’s very patient and extremely kind. Predominantly, he wants to help people and help them to succeed. You know he’s on your side. I do. And, I’m very grateful to have found him! Michele G

I truly enjoyed working with Brent. I feel like he really takes the time to listen deeply into what you are saying. I felt heard and understood, which is something I don't say often. We only worked together for a few months, but it was a great few months. He always maintains eye contact and shows great care and compassion. We shared an amazing moment during our work together where I felt like he truly understood where I was coming from and I began to cry. This is something that I don't mind sharing because it just shows how much Brent really takes the time to make you feel comfortable and heard. I highly recommend Brent as a coach.

My experience with Patricia involved personal life coaching sessions on a professional development level over a two year period. Patricia' mentoring helped me to significantly achieve professional and personal growth through her knowledge and expertise. Her one-on-one coaching provided strategies for me to implement to reach my goals professionally. Her trust and insight was invaluable to me to achieve a positive work-life balance and a job satisfaction!

"Christina had explained the benefit of organizing your LIFE once you finish organizing your space. Once we finished organizing my house, (which was life changing because it brought me so much joy!) we started our lifestyle coaching sessions. It’s the perfect transition for me to address thoughts and ideas that I always think about, but never act upon. By working with Christina I have realized that dreams can come true! We are working together to bring them to life! By putting my goals and dreams into categories and then prioritizing them, Christina helped me formulate steps to capture the experiences that might have escaped, because life is short! I am so lucky and happy to be working with you!!! I LOVE your youth, spirit and wisdom. You are truly something." ~Cathy, Wyckoff NJ

I initially met with Kimberly to receive dietary support during a very stressful time in my life. I was unsure at first what an Ayurvedic Consultant was and how she might help me, but within minutes of meeting with Kimberly I could feel her skill in understanding the many layers of what was happening in my life, combined with a profound lack of judgement, and I was instantly at ease. Over an 8-month period, Kimberly helped me to gradually and joyfully make some key dietary and lifestyle changes that greatly improved my health and well-being, changes which are still part of my life two years later! She has a knack for demystifying the ancient (yet still very applicable) science and art of Ayurveda, and taught me to make ghee (clarified butter) and kicheri (a nourishing dal), which have become weekly rituals that I very much enjoy. It is rare to meet someone with her combination of intuition, sensitivity, experience, and knowledge. I highly recommend working with Kimberly.

Carmen is a fantastic Astrologist. Her insight and methodology has been candid, succinct, and eye-opening. I have been a client of hers for nearly two years, and her ability to help me visualize and implement new goals in my life, while learning how to move on from the past, has been indispensable. Carmen's tarot card and spiritual life chart readings are always concise and knowledgeable, never superfluous and insincere. I burn Carmen's "Glory" soy candles as a monthly new moon ritual in order to assist in manifesting my beliefs in myself and my potential. With Carmen's spiritual guidance, I have grown stronger, both mentally and spiritually, and have come out of a depression that I was stuck in for quite some time. She is a true talent. With Carmen's assistance, you have an opportunity to better yourself by expanding your consciousness and understanding more about your own body and state of mind, as well as the relationships you have with those who surround you.

Paul's attention to detail never ceases to amaze me. His personality screams compassion and encouragement, and often our coaching sessions feel more like casual conversations. He draws insights from what I perceive to be off-handed comments, and has helped me to uncover the deeper thought processes that ultimately lead to intense personal development. Paul's knack for noticing what other people don't makes coaching sessions all the more worthwhile. I will continue to seek services Being More Human and encourage others to do the same. Thanks, Paul!
