Scott is very down to earth and earnest in his approach to help couples have a happier and healthier relationship. Our first meeting we discussed or goals for therapy and Scott gave my husband and I a run down on his background and experience. Since then we have been working on basic issues such as communication, budgeting and finances, things we value and find important. Overall, I feel this has strengthened our relationship and made it so we appreciate one another more. I'm really glad we found Scott. He's been a great help.

As a personal trainer for 15 years, my career has allowed me the fortitude to meet and work with 100's of trainers. When I met Scott, I knew that he possessed the ability to become a quality trainer, because his integrity was top notch. Not only is Scott eager to help others by sharing his passion and knowledge for fitness, but he is genuinely a great guy who can wear multiple "hats" - he is a motivator, he is caring, and he is professional. Scott will help educate you and keep you accountable.

Working with Freedom has really opened up my body and relaxed my mind. She helps me focus on building strength and flexibility in areas that have constantly caused me pain due to being cramped up in a car all day for my career as a sales rep. It's a great workout and has reduced my stress tremendously!

David is an incredible coach. He helped me improve not only my professional career but also my personal life. After one of my startups went wrong I needed to make some changes but I didn't know which direction to turn! I felt unmotivated, unsure of myself, directionless, aimless, I was not able to find my passion… Now I feel completely different. Thanks to David I feel GREAT. In our first meeting he listened very carefully to what I was looking for and what my situation was (A true listener!). After that, David explained me how he was going to help me. David helped me find out what my life purpose, values and skills are. We - together - designed a solid path accordingly to set and achieve personal and professional goals. The best part is that he did not give me the answers, David helped me find my answers from within. If you are willing to put the effort, David can help you change your life and and your career.

I met with Michelle about an issue in my life with my career. She was extremely helpful in pinpointing the areas I needed to focus and helped to correct those. The result has been wonderful. I will go to her again when I need help. She is warm, insightful and knowledgeable.

I had 6 months of coaching with Judith. Gradually I was able to see myself more clearly and where I wanted to be in this world. My goal at the time was to find a new career. Not only after 6 months was I able to pin point a career that would fit/work for me, but I also developed a better sense of knowing myself. Judith's skills and modalities as a coach potently initiate awakening and change. Addressing life experiences, sometimes challenging, stirred my core creating excitement and fun discovering myself. I would highly recommend Judith. She is firm yet compassionate as she guides you through self discovery. I recommend investing at least 3 months but encourage 6 months of coaching. After three months of coaching I was awakened to new possibilities for myself and my life. In 6 months these awakenings developed into knowing, creating confidence and tools for change. Thanks Judith

Mike provided focused and honest feedback when I needed career direction. This would be a jump out of my comfort zone and he helped me navigate my way through the process from refining the tone and overall feel of my resume through assisting me with creating a website, building my business plan, and preparing for the panel interview. His years of experience as a business owner and leader are apparent in his communication style and organized thought process. He had some out of he box ideas that made it a fun, not so daunting process.

Sophia T. is an outstanding conversationalist. She listens and has great insight and asks great questions to help you think outside the box. Through my conversation I have had with Sophia I have gained a greater perspective on my relationships, career and intimacy. She has helped enhanced my life experience in more ways than one. For that I am truly grateful. I would recommend Sophia T. to anyone who is going through a transition, who wants to improve their relationships, and who wants to get more intimate with themselves and partner. I am so happy I met Sophia!

Taking the time to write this honest review for a person that went above and beyond to turn my life around! Thank you so much Sabra. When I moved to a new city for work I was at a low point in my life. I had just lost my home and was forced to make a career change I didn't want. It was harsh, and I didn't feel like I was getting anything done at work because I kept worrying about my finances and relationship. All my goals I had previously set seemed impossible now. Only someone who has suffered such a spectacular collapse could understand this feeling I'm describing. I got to know of Sabra's services from a buddy who knew someone who had been seeing her, and insisted that I try her out. I had previously been seeing a couple of other therapists using more conventional (and expensive!) methods but wasn't getting much out of it. I'm a skeptic by nature so I guess I was hesitant to try something new. He arranged a free phone call with Sabra for me and her attention to detail and wise responses really impressed me! In my opinion her techniques seem sound and scientific, unlike a lot of stuff other NLP practitioners are selling. More importantly they're delivered with care and genuine concern. I remember that the first thing we spoke about was what I really wanted from my life. It sounds simple but believe me, you'll be dumbfounded by how much more clarity this brings to your life! Sabra was patient with my skepticism and took the time to explain things to me carefully. It's hard to put in words, but I'd say the following sessions progressively developed a motivation and purpose in me that I hadn't felt in a long time. Sabra spent a lot of extra hours with me to make sure I was improving, and I was. Sabra, I'd like to offer my sincere gratitude for your guidance, friendship, and sincere desire to help people like me. :)

I'm so glad I reached out to Guide on the Side for help with my two teens! I'll admit up front that I'm a rather "picky" mom--I have high expectations and I'm careful about who I allow my kids to spend time with. Ms. Karmiller did not disappoint!  All of our interactions were professional and so, so supportive. Ms. Karmiller is a compassionate, patient teacher, Her developmental and educational expertise is evident. After spending a little time with each child, she seemed to have an intuitive feel for how to best tackle each child's unique needs.  She clearly has a knack for developing supportive and instructional relationships with children. Both of my children felt cared for and respected. Their time with her was "fun" and did not seem like work, even though they got a lot done. One teen was struggling with a high school AP class, and over a period of several months, Ms. Karmiller provided direct tutoring as well as instruction on specific study strategies tailored to my child's learning style. That child raised her class grade by two letter grades! It is such a joy to see her feeling more independent and confident now. I think she's even got the courage to try other AP classes in the future.  My other child needed assistance during the transition between high school and college. Ms. Karmiller provided life skills training (guidance on financial budgeting and developing routines) and job search assistance (resume building, job applications, and networking/interview coaching). These are things I'd normally try to help my child with myself, but as is typical of this age, the child wanted to be independent and do these things by himself. It was a great comfort to me as a parent to know that he had another trusted, knowledgeable adult to turn to with questions. He got to feel independent, and I got the security of knowing my child was adapting well during the transition. In addition to meeting with him as scheduled, Ms. Karmiller went above and beyond, checking in with him regularly to inquire about his progress. She also updated me so I stayed "in the loop." I highly recommend Guide on the Side to other parents who want to help their children with school or emerging adult skills.

I had the pleasure of being coached by Jonathan Whittle-Utter. In a time of crisis in my life, I found his assistance to be trans-formative. By focusing on the process, Jonathan guided me to tap into my natural resources and abilities, supporting me in making significant personal and professional shifts. In fact, I changed my career entirely, becoming a high school counselor after having been in business management for 25 years. I now feel like I am walking my life's mission every day. Jonathan helped me onto that path.

With her having the experience to back up her advice, I know her advice is tried & true. She has been a career saver/maker! Thank you Ann for all you have helped me with. I wouldn't be where I am without your advice!

I came to Megan seeking general career/life advice, having no real idea what I wanted to do, and knowing only that my current career/life was not fulfilling. Through helpful exercises and authentic, practical, and (most of all) honest feedback, Megan guided me through one of the most challenging stretches of my life, and even helped me understand that it can be a gift to experience such a crisis. She helped me find the confidence to finally apply for a position in a very competitive agency, a position I had been wanting to apply to for years, and just the other day, I found out I had a final interview for a position in that agency! Megan is compassionate, a great listener, authentic, and she can push you when it doesn't always feel comfortable. But it's more than worth it to know that, regardless of the outcome of my current search, I am on a firmer, clearer path to living the life I want. I cannot recommend her services highly enough.
