“The time I spent with JoAnne was wonderful.  She is knowledgeable, empathetic, and very supportive.  I highly recommend JoAnne to anyone who wants to move their life forward with a coach who gets to the heart of the matter and empowers you to create the future you always wanted but didn’t know how to do on your own.”

Mary D.

Personal Change Coaching

“I met with JoAnne to better handle a difficult relationship.  Her guidance enabled me to use  more effective communication techniques and to gain a better understanding of the other person.  During the coaching process, I was able to clarify what I really wanted, set realistic and appropriate goals, and meet those goals effectively.  It was time very well-spent that gave me, not only peace-of-mind, but also relationship and communication skills that I can use throughout my life.”

Carolyn W.

Relationship Coaching

“JoAnne is the best.  The time, knowledge and sincere interest she gave to my coaching sessions was so valuable.  I was able to move on with my life after years of indecision and lack of focus.”

Jennifer T.

Personal Change Coaching

“JoAnne helped me navigate a very difficult transition in my life.  My husband became ill and had to be moved to a care facility.  I suddenly was facing life as a single person rather than as one-half of a married couple.  This was a major shift after 42 years of marriage.  I felt alone and scared.  JoAnne’s kindness, support, expertise, and sincere interest in my life made all the difference for me.  I am now creating a new life that is bringing me a sense of peace and satisfaction.”
