"To be honest, getting a life coach was a last resort for me; I came from the solitary school of doing things for myself, until I realized that my 'self' was the one getting in my way. When Sheryl started working with me, she spent the first month getting to know who I am and what my goals were. From the second month on, she helped me put my aspirations into action. After every phone conversation, not only would she send me the minutes of our conversation, but she also did her own homework on the books I read and the people I admired. In the following meeting, she would be more knowledgeable about my passions, and even suggest things that might interest me and increase my own learning and understanding. I would consider it a symbiotic relationship.
Sheryl is a very open-minded mentor with a refined approach of empathy and guidance; She has set me on a path that I could not have done by myself. She really helped get me on track, and succeeded in a few weeks where therapy couldn't in 8 years. Who needs a therapist when you can have a coach!"

I stumbled into coaching and was immediately drawn to Sheryl’s profile. I signed up for a free phone consultation with her, and I haven’t been the same since. Sheryl has years of experience and a multitude of resources, yet I never feel that she is just regurgitating information AT me.
She took the time from our first conversation, before I had even committed to her being my coach, to really develop a balanced relationship—a true give and take. I always feel heard and supported in our conversations, and she seems to know when I need a pick-me-up and sends me positive vibes. She is very knowledgeable about my individual goals, and not only checks in on my progress, but also makes suggestions to guide my growth. She herself is open to growth, and when I present her with ideas she is unfamiliar with, she does her research or allows me the opportunity to enlighten her. In a short amount of time, Sheryl has helped me more than I can adequately express. She is genuine and kind and I couldn’t be happier with her as my coach.

I don't know how I got so lucky to find a coach like Sheryl, but man I am glad I did!! She has already helped me work through some hurdles in my professional and personal life and I look forward to the future work we do together. That's the thing, Sheryl has set the stage for this to be a true partnership, which is such a great experience for someone like myself who has never had a life coach before. The online tracking sheet is wonderful and the contact we have in between calls is extremely helpful to staying on track and being mindful of my personal progress. If I could give more than 5 stars I most certainly would!! ―Nicole B, National Trainer, NH/CA/AZ
Sheryl is such a wonderful, effective mentor. While I was searching, I found a lot of coaches who offered "recipes" for what to do to achieve whatever objective, and their methods seemed more like self-help book tools than real, custom coaching. Sheryl listened to my initial ambitions and really got to the core, helping me define my individual values. We then used those as a framework for our work together. I truly felt like it was a tailored approach and appreciated her ability to pivot every time I changed my mind on topics to explore.
One thing I like most about Sheryl is how easy she is to talk to about anything. I can go on tangents all day, and she's good at letting me stray enough off-topic to learn where my intentions really led, but keeps me from going into analysis paralysis. I felt like I had permission and safety in admitting failures along the way, and if you're already looking for a coach, you need to know that's key to your success. I don't have enough spaces in my life where I can play with ideas and dreams without all the assumed consequences of vulnerability. Sheryl helps create a safe place for all that crazy to collide and form something meaningful. ―David C, Accountant, Competitive Rower, Runner, Writer, Seattle
I recently started my own coaching business and was feeling pretty overwhelmed. I had some tough decisions to make and I was starting to feel disconnected from my work and personal life. I knew over the next 3 months I wanted to make some big changes. I kept running into the same thoughts of 'I'm not good enough' when it came to my relationship. And the thought was starting to pop up in my business as well. I found it difficult to find a coach who I felt connected with. From our first conversation, Sheryl immediately made me feel at ease. I knew I had made the right decision. I have a better sense of my core values, strengths and ability as a coach after working with Sheryl. She helped me clarify what is truly important to me, which started with returning to a daily self-care practice. I love the relationship I now have with myself. I feel confident in my ability and have started to make the shifts and leaps I know I'm capable of making in my business and life, thanks to Sheryl. ―Chris W, Life Coach, Ontario, Canada
I feel privileged to have Sheryl to support and coach me. She provides me with so many thoughtful and kind insights that are helping me, day by day, to modify my thinking and broaden my perspectives, even under challenging circumstances. She gently and patiently helps me to stay on my path to my best and healthiest self. She is gifted and resourceful, and I am so grateful that she shares that with me. I hope to continue working with her for a very long time. ―Nina W, Nurse
Sheryl, I can't thank you enough for your time, patience, counseling, help, care, and love toward Mom through this challenging time in her life. You have given more time and effort than any other professional I've seen involved in Mom's life, and both she and I are eternally grateful. I wish my Mom had formed a relationship with someone like you 10 years ago :-) ― B.B, Alabama
After going through several coaches, Sheryl was the first one that I really loved. I really resonated with her and absolutely love the way she does her coaching. She knows what to say exactly and gives advice to where you are. She's very non-judgmental and understanding but she also pushes you, which is something I believe is super important. She is helping me get back up on my feet and I am so grateful for it. I recommend her to anyone who needs help if they're feeling stuck, needs some super knowledgeable advice or someone who is super understanding. ―Pranay A, Student Entrepreneur, NY
Working with Sheryl has been awesome! She is extremely personable and easy to talk to. She uses tons of past experience and research when coming up with well thought out and personalized recommendations. She has been very flexible and has catered to a working relationship that fits my preferences and schedule. I feel more inspired than ever before and the impact to various aspects of my life is beyond what I could have hoped for. Highly recommend working with Sheryl!

"Sheryl's insight has helped me be honest about who I am now and who I want to be. She is helping me pave a way to walk out of past patterns into a healthier life. I cannot stress enough that I feel safe with her, and I believe it is due to her ability to be interactive and provide me with honest insight. She knows her topics well and how to communicate with me easily. As Sheryl coaches me, I gain courage and hope. For instance, without her reinforcement in boundary setting, I would not have felt safe enough to move forward. I don't have to be the protective survivor anymore. I can thrive, not just survive. I have courage that I thought wasn't possible." ―Prudence S, Paralegal, Virginia
"You, Sheryl, are an interior designer - you help people decorate the “house” that they live in for their whole life on Earth." ―Donna B, Yoga Instructor/Coach, British Columbia
"I have truly enjoyed working with Sheryl. She is a supportive coach who encourages and inspires. Together, we worked to develop goals and how to reach them. We worked through a career change, achieving balance in my life, eliminating unwanted habits and how to put more joy in my life. I found her to be very effective and I have grown immensely. I look forward to continue working with her as these changes become part of my new life and I strive for further goals." ―Kristin K, Pilates Instructor, Massachusetts
"Dear Sheryl, thank you so much for all your help in my effort to stop smoking. Your insights into my reasons for smoking have been an invaluable help to me and a major reason for my success. The musicality of your voice was always uplifting for me, and your encouragement always kept me going forward. I looked forward to and always enjoyed speaking with you during our sessions. My deepest thanks to you - you were a blessing to me. Sincerely,"
―Mary T, Mother/Dancer/Non-smoker after 42 years, Massachusetts
I consider myself very fortunate to have been connected with Sheryl. I was in a rut in my life - I didn't know how to move forward in a relationship since I had lost so much of myself in my previous one. Sheryl has been able to help me set goals for myself and start to really regain my ground again and believe in myself a little more each day. I always look forward to my phone call each week and Sheryl always sends a few messages my way almost every day to remind me to keep pushing myself and that I have someone there to back me no matter what. Sheryl isn't just a life coach, she is a friend; she goes above and beyond and really digs into something that she isn't familiar with or wants to learn more about in your life. I don't just recommend you to contact Sheryl, I urge you to because for me, I don't know how I have gone this long without her and if you are in any way lost even just a little, give her a call, she will put you on the right path. Sheryl is amazing!
―Clara B, Aerial Imagery Tech Support, Rochester, New York

She truly cares about her clients and does an amazing job of checking in on me and giving me gentle nudges in the right direction. I feel so lucky to have signed up with her and am so excited to see where this journey together takes me! ―Mary A, Pediatric Therapist, California
"I appreciate the time and efforts Sheryl spends aiding me as my personal life coach. She has helped me in various areas of my life and given me so much feedback and positivity. I love the connection we have and it truly helps to absolutely enjoy the conversation with her. It's like chatting with a long time friend, that has specialized feedback for EVERYTHING! She has helped me attain my goals with health, spirituality, and succeeding in my career choices. Before Sheryl, I was lost in a pool of various angles. Now, I have control of my life and can see my options and goals more clearly." ―Quinn S, Yoga Teacher, Reiki Practitioner and Mother, Shreveport, Louisiana
