Kind Words About Stephanie

"Stephanie is a thoughtful coach, guiding with insightful pacing and placing caches of wisdom within reach. She was faultlessly professional and generous. I appreciated her patience, wisdom, warmth, and humor." 

-Catherine

"It’s been two years since our work together. While I still have not built that regular meditation practice, I do practice mindfulness daily. I’m mindful of what I eat—even when I make an unhealthy choice. 

I’m mindful of my thoughts. I’m able to move things out of my mind, but also able to process thoughts that I need to address.

I’m mindful of what’s going on in my body. The mindfulness lessons led me to finally change/manage my relationship with food. I'm eating at home 90% of the time.

I’ve also developed a regular exercise routine/habit, resulting in weight loss, lower cholesterol, and improved overall health. 

And a lot has changed. I got married. I changed jobs. I moved across the country to the place closest to my heart. That’s a lot. It could’ve been stressful. Well, it was actually. But you gave me tools. And I use them as needed.

I wanted to check in to let you know how your former pupil was doing and to say thank you!! You helped me change my life for real!

"Stephanie is one of the most engaging and calming speakers I have ever had the pleasure of viewing virtually. Her energy floats through the screen and you can almost feel it! 

Over the last year, I’ve attended dozens of virtual presentations but none like what Stephanie delivered. She spoke to my organization on the benefits of wellness, mindfulness, and meditation. She used both common practices and also introduced a handful of new tactics to engage our audience. She seamlessly interacted with our group through a computer screen and made us feel as though we were sitting in a live audience! 

She has this natural ability to make you want to listen to what she has to say and feel comfortable when invited to participate. Stephanie certainly knows how to bring a group of people together in not only a compelling manner, but one where even weeks after her presentation many of her words are left ringing in my ear as small reminders from the lessons she left us with.

I can’t recommend Stephanie enough and only hope I’m lucky enough to hear her speak again soon!"
