Life Coaching Testimonials

I feel that I have grown immeasurably during these past years of coaching

I feel that I have grown immeasurably during these past years of coaching  —  I have stretched and I have moved into directions, developing new confidence and self assurance — because of your listening ear and insights.

I have deeply appreciated knowing you, appreciating and anticipating each Wednesday morning session.  Without these times, I would have stumbled many times.  I say ‘thank you,’  even though these two little words sound so very small and insignificant.  They  hardly express the depth of my thankfulness and gratitude for the leadership you have gifted me.

I had no expectations of what a coach would be…

I had no expectations of what a coach would be or bring into my life but the results have been phenomenal. Donna helped me sort out my ideas and get clear on my motivations. What she has done in two months is what would have taken me years on my own.

Donna is extremely personable but maintains a professional attitude. She is very resourceful and mixes intuition with observations to clear a path for you to see. Simply great subtle work. I couldn’t imagine a better person for anyone seeking help in sorting out where they stand and where they would like to be.

I highly recommend her.

You’ve been so helpful and given me so many tools…

You’ve been so helpful and given me so many tools that have helped me create boundaries with my family, learn to say “no”, become more solution oriented, build my self esteem, and not takes things so personally.
You’re kind demeanor makes it easy to work with you, you’re not pushy, you don’t tell me what to do, we work together as partners to figure out what to do.

The difference between coaching and therapy is that you helped me figure out what needed to be done immediately. You helped me focus on specific steps, the who and what, to move me forward to change my life. The therapy and coaching helped to synthesize the learning so I could take action. Now I’m feeling hope that I’m getting my life on track.

Life Coaching helped me get clear about what I want out of life.  Now I’m able to make a plan, stay on track, and not feel so guilty if I get off track.  I used to beat myself up for everything I didn’t do.  I’ve let go of my guilt and now I’m able to keep moving, one step at a time, and persevere.  I’m finally living the life I’ve always wanted to live.

— S.S., Vice President of Global Supply Chain

Your coaching had a great impact on my personal…

Your coaching had a great impact on my personal and professional growth because it was very personal. You listened to what was on my mind, rational or not, and helped me clarify my thoughts. When I don’t have a sounding board, I don’t get feedback. Coaching helped me get clarity.

Our work together also helped me get to the core of what was holding me back so that now saying and doing the right things comes naturally. You’ve helped me be stronger and more able to tell people what I think. I am now more assertive, forthright, and am able to say the “hard things” to people. You also gave me great suggestions and helped me keep focused on my goals. Thank you, Donna.

— J.R., Trainer

After working with you for just three sessions…

After working with you for just three sessions I was able to recognize when the negativity seized me, and was able to shift from my negative spiral thinking to positive thinking. I’ve been working on trying to do that for years. I finally did it, with your help!!

— M.N

I just wanted to THANK YOU…

I just wanted to THANK YOU for all the help you gave me in our coaching together. Before we started working together I had a lot of problems when it came to being assertive, standing up for myself and being a leader. But after working with you for a few months, I solved all of these issues and much more. Not only am I much more confident and assertive than I was before, but I’m a happier person as well! Thanks for much for all your help!
