Client Love

My experience with Jill was a revelation!  She heard what I thought my problems were, but also deciphered the underlying issues I didn’t know were there. Her process focused on my needs, as a very specific and individual person. The program was tailor made for me. She also anticipated pitfalls, and helped me embrace even the difficulties I encountered in overcoming my own roadblocks.

Jill gave me the gift of permission to validate my own boundaries, define my own values, and live according to them. It’s an ongoing project, but when I  look behind me, I could not be more proud of how far I’ve come, and I could not have done it without Jill’s steady, reassuring hand on the wheel.

Before coaching with Jill I had been struggling with co-dependent tendencies in relationships for years. She helped me to develop a new way approaching dating and relationships to be more balanced and confident.  Since our coaching, I have been able maintain healthier relationships without compromising my needs. I would highly recommend Jill. She is a powerful coach and gets to root of problems, so that they can be released. This has helped me professionally as well, as I am less invested in changing others and more focused on myself. Thanks, Jill!

Update:  Hey Jill, I am so thankful for your coaching. I feel have a found the love of my life because of your help. I hope you choose to focus on helping others looking for love in the same way!

One thing that stood out about Jill, was how easy it was to talk to her. She was open, attentive, and not the least bit judgmental. I learned how to manage my social life in a far healthier way. I’m an introvert, so socializing with others is draining. Jill helped me figure out how to “recharge my batteries” and, most importantly, how not to feel bad about doing so. I feel significantly more confident in talking to strangers, holding conversations, and initiating interactions – all things that I struggled with previously.

Jill’s approach is very compassionate. I appreciated her awareness of my growth process, and ability to gently motivate me when the growth process got tough. Jill helped me to understand my value in the workplace and set necessary boundaries with my boss and co-workers. I honestly believed I did not deserve to work in an environment where I should be valued, nor did I believe I could move onto another job/career where I would be valued.

I would recommend Jill in a heartbeat. She truly cares about the challenge you are working to overcome and has your best interest at heart. Knowing you’re not alone is priceless.

Update:  I’m in the healthiest personal relationship of my life. The coaching process allowed me to begin speaking up for myself and know that I deserved to be treated with respect. I no longer spend my energy as the Tightrope Walker and am showing up as myself – The Mighty Redwood – in all my relationships. Thank you!

Before the coaching process I was hopeful but skeptical, especially using the metaphors of the Pearl Diver and the Master Gardener. My friends who had life coaches had led me to believe it was a quick and easy fix. Maybe it was for them, but as I was making fundamental changes in my life, it took me longer to see results.

In retrospect, seeing my ‘new way of being’ as a Master Gardener has helped me weed (removing negative thoughts and people) and nurture the relationships I want to keep. By bringing in new plants (activities, people, relationships), I have added to my garden and am allowing it to bloom and mature. Jill gave me a different perspective on understanding other people and their responses to me, one that was less negative and critical. This process helped me branch out in new directions and I now have many friendly people to do things with.

Jill was my life coach through a series of 8 sessions.  I expected to focus on professional leadership coaching, but she had bigger ideas.  Jill is very discerning, listening to every detail and connecting the dots to find a common thread.  The key is that she doesn’t pull the thread, she guided me through unraveling the tangled web that is life and human interaction.  The candid conversations with Jill were invaluable.

Thanks to Jill’s coaching, I now have a more holistic view on the interdependence of self-awareness, self-care, boundaries, trust, and integrity.  Establishing boundaries has become more natural and instinctive; enabling me to establish a healthier work/life balance. I highly recommend Jill as a coach; life, professional, leadership, all of the above.  She will find the common thread and you will pull it, revealing a balanced and focused you.
