I decided to change my business focus, but after a few months I felt that I was wandering in circles without a path. Initially, I hired Monica to get clear about the action steps I needed to take to get things done. While we were working, she kept pointing out my patterns of distraction and self-sabotage—habits that I was so immersed in that I didn't notice. She helped me get more clear about the how and why of them and then helped me find ways to change them. I now am moving confidently forward and no longer feel lost. I can now catch myself when I start actions that take me off my path.

From the moment I met Monica, I felt very comfortable around her. It’s a tricky thing to put someone at ease while giving them gentle nudges, and Monica has thoroughly mastered that art. During our sessions, she helped me focus on what really mattered to me—lots of “aha” moments—and encouraged me to find the language to share my feelings with my husband. I’m grateful for the work we did together, and continue to use the framework and tools she provided me with.

The biggest shift I experienced from my work with Monica was finding the clarity and support I needed to end a 5 year long relationship that was a big source of stress for me. I was hanging onto the relationship even though I knew it wasn't working, and it was a constant source of frustration and resentment for me. Yet, I kept talking myself into staying with it. The questions Monica asked made it clear to me that I needed to let it go. She encouraged me to commit to taking action promptly instead of delaying…it actually got me to do it. I was able to set clear boundaries and have them respected. I have felt a lot of relief after ending the relationship, and I am still grateful to have done it. I am grateful for the clarity and encouragement that helped me move on.
