She gave me the support I needed to make bold moves in my life.
Before I worked with Liz, I was pretty content with my life. I was professionally successful, with a loving partner and great friendships. But I still felt conflicted inside, like I was trying to do everything well, so I couldn’t focus on what was most important. I wasn’t sure about coaching, but after Liz explained the process, I realized that it’s like having all the perks of a close friend or mentor who is rooting for you 100%, but who brings a third party perspective and who ONLY focuses on what YOU want.
After working with Liz, I feel more confident moving forward in my career, in my life and in my work. I'm more aware of the gifts I want to bring to the world.
Now I feel focused, my choices are clear, and my energy has been lifted knowing that I am heading down the right path toward the most important goals of my life.
Before I started working with Liz my life was very successful, by most people’s definition, but at times overwhelming. I suffered from a misery of choice. Admittedly, they were mostly great choices, but sorting through what to do and what to focus on was paralyzing me.
I was beginning to get itchy feet. I felt overworked, underappreciated, and started to wonder if greener fields existed. I felt torn about whether to leave my current job, just for the sake of leaving and making a change. Since Liz's summit, things have improved - I'm in a new position with the same company (promotion, created for me) and got a pay rise!
Liz graciously invited me to attend her summit on [when/subject]. Having recently turned 40 and after ten years with the same management consulting firm, I was beginning to get itchy feet. I felt overworked, underappreciated, and started to wonder if greener fields existed perhaps in another job or field. I looked around for other jobs, but nothing was feeling quite right and I felt torn about whether to leave my current job, just for the sake of leaving and making a change. There are many things that are great about my current job - including colleagues. However, there are so many resources out there telling you to push yourself and try new things, and I always associated this with a major change - new job, new city, new me... Liz's summit therefore came at a great time. Many of the resources she provided helped me think about options to be more content without jumping into a new job somewhere unknown, doing something I didn't really want. I re-considered my options to stay with my current employer. I re-considered my attitude towards work. I opened up my thinking on what else I could do with my company. I ended up having an open conversation with my colleagues about how I was feeling, which was great for everyone. I'm in a new position (promotion, created for me) and got a pay rise! As a result, I look forward to starting a new position, tailored to the needs for the company and my own interests. It will mean new challenges and growth opportunities, but keeping all the things I love about my current situation. Thanks for the support Liz!
I have a clearer vision... and I have the confidence to take the concrete steps to get started.
Fifteen years into a successful professional career spanning two fields across two levels of government, I found myself at a crossroads. The time had come to determine what the next phase of my professional life would look like. I could start seriously pursuing promotional opportunities, but I felt a nagging hesitation. While I enjoyed my work, it wasn’t fulfilling me the way it had in the past. I felt like there were more challenges out there for me to tackle and that the time might be right for me to consider a different path.
I had always wanted to be a writer, and had a small personal blog for a few years. I had been thinking about making a serious effort at freelance and fiction writing, but had never really been able to create a plan for what a professional writing endeavour would look like. It was at around that time that I learned that Liz was offering personal leadership and development coaching. Even though I wasn’t really sure what to expect, I thought that working with a coach would be a great opportunity to explore where my strengths and motivations really lie.
I had thought that working with a coach meant going through the coach’s specific leadership program, which would have been great. But working with Liz was actually much better than that. One of my biggest surprises was how much she tailored the experience to me and my needs right from the beginning. She determined what level of prodding and feedback I wanted, and she was really fantastic at listening to me speak and picking up on things that I needed to explore more. She offered resources and exercises that were helpful and useful. Most importantly, she is both professional and extremely warm and kind at the same time. I had some very vulnerable moments, and Liz treated them with the care and respect that I needed.
Coming out of the experience, I have a clearer vision for how I am going to pursue a writing career, and I have had the confidence to take the concrete steps to get started. I don’t feel “stuck” any more, I know that I have options and where I’m going from here. I highly recommend coaching with Liz, for whatever goals you want to pursue.

Liz helped hold me accountable for the outcome I wanted and have achieved.
Despite focusing on business and leadership, Liz seamlessly adapted to coaching me on my relationship goals. Liz balanced sensitivity with a subtle, yet effective ability to nudge me to look at my limiting beliefs differently. In sum, Liz helped hold me accountable for the outcome I wanted and have achieved.

The investment in myself is paying dividends
Before working with Liz, I wasn't satisfied with my work-life balance and felt I was just living for the weekends. I knew that I wanted a change, but wasn't sure how to bring more balance, happiness, enjoyment and satisfaction into my life. It was at this point that a life coach, Liz, came into my life, at just the right time.
At first I was concerned that I might not have the time to commit or that the cost of such sessions would be too much.
After speaking with Liz, I gained a better understanding of what life coaches are and how they can help you achieve success in whatever your endeavors may be. I really felt like this was the missing piece that I needed to help me achieve the balance I was searching for.
I decided to jump in and haven't looked back. Not only has Liz helped me to better understand myself, but she has helped me to achieve successes in both my personal and professional life. I've not only had a coach, but a cheerleader which has propelled me to a happier place, with a healthier work life balance.
The time commitment and the cost of sessions, that I was initially concerned about, were worth the investment. The investment in myself is paying dividends, my only regret is not having signed up with a life coach sooner!
