What They Are Saying – Our Testimonials
Cory Rossignol – Physical Trainer – August 2018
Before I met Vicki, many aspects of my life seemed hopeless and out of my control — I needed more out of life. I heard myself repeating “life is too short”. My marriage was on a road to failure, i.e. my husband and I wouldn’t have a reason for staying together after the kids left home. I didn’t feel loved or appreciated by my husband. I felt resentful. I was full of expectations that were constantly not being met.
I reluctantly agreed to work with Vicki for 6 months. Why reluctantly? How long would it really take to uncover what’s wrong with my relationship to improve my marriage – which was my goal. I am grateful that Vicki was firm with her insistence that I commit to work with her for at least 6 months. I can already see after only 8 sessions, that we are working on the long-term vision of “ME”. In these 8 sessions, my discussions (and homework) with Vicki have already helped me look at my relationship in a more positive light, which has resulted in a closer more harmonious marriage and a mutual positive outlook for our future together. My husband is more relaxed and more open with me. The bonus has been the wonderful impact on the entire family. We’re not on edge, we’re communicating, and we’re laughing again.
What I didn’t expect was the depth and focus of the work on me – in the present and the future. With Vicki’s support, I’ve achieved a most valuable early breakthrough defining the top priorities in my life. And using that we’re defining what brings me joy and supports those top priorities, and how to apply that in every aspect of my life.
Thank you, Vicki, for your encouragement and support on this journey of self-discovery. Vicki’s service is definitely a 10 out of 10.
Patrick Gallery PS – Attorney at Law
I wanted to share with you and others the difference having you as a coach has made in addressing some important issues in my life.
By way of background, I am an attorney and have several rental properties. I was 66 when we worked together and anxious about retirement and managing my rentals in a more effective manner so that I could retire. Even though I believed I could figure it out on my own – I was continually putting off establishing and implementing a game plan. I was overworked and not thinking clearly about anything.
So, I came to you for coaching. I saw myself as a difficult client because I didn’t want to expose my weaknesses to anyone, and I was still believing that I shouldn’t have to spend the money on coaching because I was “smart enough to not need any help”.
Anyway, the great thing about working with you was that you really helped me (let’s face it – you really pressed me which was what I needed) to get clear about what I wanted in life around retirement and managing my rentals, and we developed a specific plan to get there. As we went along, I would invariably start falling into my old pattern of putting things off and you made sure I got back on track.
With your help I made some fundamental financial decisions that I would not otherwise have considered, which in the end made a tremendous improvement in how I managed my rental properties, giving me more free time, peace of mind, and income. Not only was this critical to reaching my bigger goal of retirement, it also resulted in a happier relationship with my wife.
Thank you so much.
