Because she was so open through a pivotal time in her life, I’ve learned to trust her counsel and sage advice since she’s ”Been there, done that.” Her capacity for listening, understanding and support is immeasurable.  I always feel empowered and energized after spending time with Joan.

Through my work with Joan, I was able to completely transform some realms of my life that were bringing me down and preventing me from being the person I wanted to be. Now, I have a clear vision of the path to take to be in the place in life that I have always dreamed of being.

I was in a funk with a few key relationships in my life & felt adrift at work.  We worked on a nagging negative inner dialogue that held me back, drilled down on my core values & mission & created a “tool belt” of resources to navigate challenges. This clarity catapulted my life into action!

I contacted Joan to kick some generational bad habits while preserving tradition to become a leader for my family. I found that changing my thinking empowered me, personally & professionally, to discover my best self. I will be forever grateful that her program helped me learn the tools to become a better leader.
