Testimonials

I really appreciated how carefully you listened to everything I said. Without drawing assumptions, you were able to hear behind the surface level of my words and get to the heart of what I really wanted to and meant to say. I also appreciate your timely questions when I began to be caught up in “what if” and “I’m afraid that this will happen”. You were able to gently help me reorient myself when I was getting caught up in emotional pulls. Emotions are always true, but they don’t always represent truth, if you know what I mean. It’s possible to honor an emotion while also honoring the truthfulness of whatever inspired the emotional response.

 Arlene has a warm style of coaching – through all our sessions, i felt firmly that not only does she accept and champion me, she challenges me to look at different perspectives in a way that is integrity with who i am as a person. She held me firmly as naturally creative and resourceful, and invited me deeper into the questions i held around the issues i brought relating to building my coaching business. There was fun and lightness in the coaching relationship, and I felt absolutely thrilled to be able to explore possibilities and take inspired action. I learnt that as a growing business owner of a coaching business, I could do ANYTHING if it was what i truly wanted. There is freedom and fulfillment in the journey of creating something that was my own, and I get to be bold about it as I try different and better ways of creating and inventing my business … traditional business models goes out the window, and in comes meaningful indicators and processes that speak to who i am and what i value I was able to experiment with different ways of business execution, content creation, and client enrollment – it was fantastic being able to learn from what i did to create a more sustainable coaching business that reflects ME! I truly recommend working with Arlene – if and only if you are looking for not just inspired outcomes, but also an enjoyable journey of self-discovery that is fun and seemingly effortless! Change can be graceful indeed 🙂

Arlene is an amazing coach! She asks powerful questions and provided me so much clarity regarding blindspots in my personal life. With her guidance, I was able to detach from a relationship that was not serving me. I highly recommend Arlene as a coach!

I would highly recommend Arlene for coaching! My high school son recently went through multiple sessions with Arlene and she is amazing!! Arlene has a unique way of connecting with her clients — gentle, subtle yet powerful in results. It is exactly what he needed. She managed to not only get my son to figure out some things for himself but his insight through his sessions has ignited a whole new teenager that is focused and driven to achieve what he wants out of life! And as a bonus, we have a better relationship with our son. We have learned as a family how to relate and ask the right questions. I am indebted to Arlene for her compassion, empathy and pearls of wisdom. She is an incredible coach!

Arlene was my coach for several months; she is unique in that she has a dual coaching and therapy background. I thrived on her excellent counsel, intuition, incisive questions and insights to work through some challenging relationship and other issues. More impressive is she excels in territory which is seemingly unfamiliar to her, which is a testament to her talent. Whenever I have an issue I am confronted with, Arlene is unhesitatingly one of my first stops.

Arlene is currently working with my son, a freshman in college. He has been struggling to define what he wants out of his education & future career. Through Arlene’s coaching, he is learning a lot about himself & how to communicate these things to his Dad & me. They have a great working relationship, too. She understands young adults!

I love the workshops with Arlene. The themes are current and the approach is so helpful. I like that we can practice the situations. She gives helpful guidelines and suggestions to deal with the “problem” with out telling you what to do, but helps you to adapt and manage. I love her help.

Arlene has a gift for reading people and situations, and seeing what’s taking place on multiple levels. She uses this gift to gently lead us toward our own enlightened insight. Her best in the evolving relationship with older teenagers: “Be curious.” In other words, delay lecture mode by asking questions. This keeps both of us from jumping to conclusions and reacting based on assumptions. It really works.

I have participated in Arlene’s group sessions for parents on parenting communication. Arlene has good ideas for facilitating conversation with teenagers during emotional crises. She helps parents better understand how to open the channels of communication rather than inadvertently shutting them down. Her vignettes are fun, relevant and as instructive on what not to do as to what to do to form a better relationship with your teen.

I hired Arlene to help me find my way back to myself. I’d been in a bike crash during a race and was struggling with the mental and physical healing. As a Core Performance Dynamics coach myself, I knew how to coach myself AND I knew that coaching myself wouldn’t be very effective. I wanted to get through this journey quickly. I needed a coach to help me with that. Arlene came into my life at the perfect time. She really saw me–the me I was in the midst of my healing struggle and who I am at my best. She reflected my own thoughts back to me, helping me find clarity in the chaos. She helped me remember that I can do hard things, that my body is my best friend and helped me reach the highest potential that was possible with my healing body. With Arlene’s help, I went from a bloody mess and my first ever DNF (unfinished race) to winning my age group and finishing 6th overall five weeks later. I am so so grateful for Arlene, her intuition and her awesome coaching skills.
