“Jen was my coach during one of the most difficult transitional periods of my life. After experiencing the loss of my job and relationship, I needed someone to guide me and keep me accountable to move in a positive direction. During our sessions, Jen listened to everything I said (and wasn’t saying!) and asked thoughtful questions that brought me to interesting places I didn’t expect. Coaching was great for giving me space to vent everything that was festering inside of me and helping me create a plan to move forward. Jen is warm, caring, and tough when she needs to be, which is exactly what I needed!”
“My experience in being accompanied by Jennifer was really helpful. I felt her being so compassionate, benevolent, clear, lucid and implicated in my process. I felt very well supported and wisely guided. She helped me to see clearly through the situation I was in by identifying the forces in action. She deeply listened to me and reflected to me my way of thinking or perceiving certain situations. She helped me set the values I wanted to see shining in my life in order to make a big choice. She gave me amazing and very concrete day to day tools to help me manage states of anxiety. I would recommend her guidance anytime. ”
“Coaching with Jen was truly a life changing opportunity. Through a year of working with her, I learned more about myself than I ever did and now I am extremely in tune with who I am. Jen was able to help build and sharpen the skill sets I already had to become successful in the future. She also helped me understand what my true goals in life were. I am infinitely grateful for all Jen has done for me. She is loyal, vivacious, and has a calming aura. I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to work with her as only positive things will come from it”

Chaque semaine, elle effectuait un suivi régulier et s’assurait de m’aider à gérer mes angoisses au fur et à mesure qu’elles apparaissaient et selon leur évolution. Ces nombreuses méthodes de gestion du stress et de planification ont été des outils qui ont contriubés à ma réussite. Je la remercie grandement pour son aide et je suis convaincu qu’elle pourra également vous aider dans votre cheminement!”
