“Lea is a wonderful coach. I was nervous when we first spoke, but she put me at ease. I felt completely lost with regard to the next steps of my relationship with my daughter, and she helped me see we were doing okay. Her kindness and honesty made me feel safe, and that allowed me to look at some really tough issues in a new light. I miss her terribly, but I’ll always have her with me. The voice in my head that comforts me when I’m scared about my parenting decisions sounds an awful lot like her.”

“Lea’s coaching was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself as a mother. Her presence is like having a fairy godmother for the parenting journey, except she’s a fairy godmother with some very practical real-world suggestions to go along with her support of her clients’ personal growth. Without her influence, we would still be wondering why our highly gifted child (IQ above the 99.9th percentile) was struggling to fit in within a traditional academic setting. Lea set me on an amazing journey of discovery in navigating the landscape of parenting a bright, creative, spirited daughter.”

“I wanted to thank you again for all your support and love especially during the trying times of my cancer treatments. You came into my life to practice your coaching skills and you helped keep me afloat during one of the most difficult times of my life. I will never forget the joy and laughter we managed during those sessions. You have been an inspiration and tear catcher. I will always be grateful to you.”

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking me on as a coaching client. You helped me do some soul searching to decide who I wanted to be as a person as well as a parent. You guided me along through many rough spots and always were a sympathetic ear when I described my many problems and issues. I believe you truly have a are a great listener and offer very sound, constructive advice.”

“The way you took my jumbled thoughts and concisely summarized them as a means for reflection and growth was so helpful to me…and as a visual learner, it helped to receive your summaries via e-mail after each call. I felt like I had my own personal cheerleader because of your listening ear, helpful feedback and guidance and all your words of encouragement.”
