Working with Barbara really helped me clarify my values, strengths, and interests and most importantly, provided me concrete ideas for moving into action. Barbara gave me tools and techniques for creating a vision for the next chapter, and then specific steps to begin turning that vision into reality. Barbara is highly skilled in listening and affirming, but also in gently challenging people to move into action. I also found the various worksheets to be extremely helpful in learning specific ways to move forward. Plus it was great fun! Barbara challenged me to set concrete goals, take risks, move outside my comfort zone, find support and be accountable. It was exactly what I needed to realize my goals and reach for my dreams.

I appreciate Barbara’s deceptively simple approach, based on listening and asking just the right questions. Her assignments seem unremarkable at first but prove to be mind-blowing. Barbara, you made such a big difference in my life at a critical time. I appreciate your help planning my 55th Birthday party, as well as my life since!
