“It has been a little over 2 years since I started working with Kate as my coach. I found her when I was feeling very low, despite ‘checking off’ all the accomplishments (husband, child, home, grad school) I thought would bring great feelings of ease. I was not feeling ease. I was really discouraged. My ‘try harder’ gear was wearing out. I decided to give coaching a try. OMG it was such a profound decision. Two years hence I am still me, I just have many more choices. It’s like I have new paths to choose from, and I have a sense that it is so possible to do things differently. I realize I may sound like I’m off my meds, but life is freer, brighter, and I am so much more curious about everything.”
