She listens deeply and helps me understand what I am trying to say in a bigger context. She provided so much clarity helped me to navigate challenging work situations. – Tanya M.

Gail helped me navigate through my so-called unsolvable problems. With absolute certainty, my coaching sessions help me figure out what I wanted to do next and land the perfect position. She makes the job search light, more interesting and less painful. The discussions she initiates during sessions are very insightful and not only help with specific career goals, but also ripple into other aspects of life. She worked gently yet tenaciously to empower the best in me. – Latitia P.

Gail met me where I live and play, with a customized and flexible approach, valuable assessments and practical strategies.

Within six weeks, I was taking powerful steps toward a new and highly compelling vision of my career. - Elliot S.

I was fuzzy and fearful about getting there, about how, if ever, I would reach my goal of leading from the C-Suite. My confidence had all but disappeared. What’s changed for me with coaching? Within a few sessions, the fierce questions asked of me set off an amazing light bulb, forced me to surpass what I would do on my own. I am thankful for you getting me to this place of clarity and excitement for the open road ahead. – Tanya P.

After over two decades working with the same firm, it was time to pursue another career. My goal in hiring an executive coach was to identify a plan, and put steps into action to assume a new position. I developed an instant connection with Gail and really liked her methodology that helped me identify the next career I wanted and take necessary steps to put it into action. She empowered me to take on challenges that I would have shied away from in the past and guided me to appreciate all that I have accomplished, and approach my new career with confidence and excitement. – John W.

Gail was highly recommended by a friend. After meeting her, I felt quite positive that she could help guide me through a career transition. She is a very creative and positive person who is supportive and also challenges one to move forward. She is quite experienced in this type of consulting and can draw on this experience to customize a program for different individuals in different circumstances. I highly recommend her. – Joel G.

Gail helped me develop a clear vision of what I was looking for during an especially difficult time. Working with her renewed my confidence to pursue a major position that ultimately I was offered and accepted. Her insight, experience, and knowledge was and is invaluable in sorting through the clutter that takes over our lives to see what is possible. Gail makes you feel that she is in the moment with you as you are experiencing it – making her a partner as well as a guide. I highly recommend Gail as not just a career coach, but as a life coach. She put new meaning into how iDecide! – June F.

Coaching with Gail gave me the opportunity to be courageous enough to discover that I have the ability to create a career opportunity that aligns with my core values.

I am in a really, really good place….and you, Gail, are a big, big part of that. – Jeff W.

Gail is an inspiring coach who is filled with such generosity and love.

Gail has been my coach for 6 months, and it has felt so good to be held by her focused, warm, powerful care. She puts me at ease with her easy laughter and enthusiasm for my success and opens doors within me to notice, experience and acknowledge my life.

I came to the coaching experience with very little idea of what to expect, but in just a few sessions, Gail and I were exploring ideas, habits and self-searching practices that opened my eyes and my life to changes I didn’t even realize I craved… She helped me to define and examine key priorities in my life, and subsequently challenged me to make concrete changes that reflected those priorities. During the short time I worked with Gail, I gained invaluable tools and guiding principles that will serve me the rest of my life. – Sarah M.

Coaching with Gail opened the door to success I did not believe was possible. I have literally gone from fear to free! I am more effective and less stressed at work. I started dating, exercising again and moved to a new home. Gail reconnected me with my priorities and let me see it was time to let go of outdated beliefs that kept me from getting what I wanted. – Mary F.
I definitely got what I came for: I learned how to be more “present” with my husband and children and that has made all the difference. – Sandy W.
