Testimonials

“Susanne is a great coach!  She is open to what I want to try and good at brainstorming, with helpful ideas and strategies to achieve my goals.  She helped me hone in on skills that could help me in the process.  In my case, it was writing.  She encouraged me to write through my blocks and write out my visions.  This helped me gain self knowledge and self awareness.  Thank you, Susanne!”
– Elizabeth Pickens, Musician & Writer

“Susanne is an amazing coach! In just a few sessions we went from discussing my professional background and career goals to reworking my resume and cover letter, applying to job openings, and coaching me for a job interview. Susanne can quickly grasp what it is you’re looking to get out from the career coaching sessions and effectively meet your expectations. Thanks for your guidance and advice, Susanne!”
– KS, Project Manager

“My goal was to get my life re-balanced and find ways to incorporate self-care into my regime. Throughout our sessions I realized some other issues needed to be addressed prior to setting new goals. From there, I began to incorporate self-care into my weekly life and set new goals in other areas of my life. Working through [this issue] with Susanne provided me with a new approach to my current life. I immediately felt more satisfied with my life and the new roles I hold.

Susanne is a great listener and “investigator” She was able to pick up on key issues that needed to be addressed. Often these were issues that I wasn’t aware that needed attention. She seemed to know exactly what questions to ask to help me move forward. Another quality that I really appreciated in Susanne was her ability to empathize and share personal experiences that were very relevant to my situation. Knowing I was not alone in the way I was feeling was comforting.”

The “setting your intention” exercise has been key in helping me focus and move forward at a quicker pace. With setting my intention I now visualize what the next step in my personal development should sound like, look like, and feel like. From this experience I learned the importance of having a healthy and inspiring support system/ group of friends. I will continue to cultivate meaningful relationships in order to achieve my life goals. Also, I will remember to set my intention before every task and see if the end product fits my goals and values. Susanne is a fun, interactive; task oriented, and focused coach. I never wanted to let her down.

– Claudia R., PhD (History), University of California

“Through Susanne’s help as my coach I was able to focus on my goals (tactical) and accomplish them.  Susanne is the first coach I’ve ever had, so it was an interesting process for me….”   “I found it interesting how we can all get caught up in perspectives that affect our ability to process things and move forward, but an outside perspective (from a coach) can bring clarity. I also found that it is very helpful to be accountable to someone (other than myself) to “report” progress to for goals sent the week before.

I appreciated Susanne’s active listening skills, and always felt she was very focused on “me” during each session. And I appreciated her professionalism in terms of not canceling sessions, or having to reschedule them regularly. So I was really happy that Susanne approached this as a real coaching relationship, and conducted herself as such.”  During our sessions, she always had a lot of questions, re-iterated statements I made to ensure her understanding of what I said, and was always organized for each session…”

I think Susanne was a great coach and I really enjoyed the sessions we had together. I’ll miss our weekly sessions!”
