Success Stories

“Heidi understood how my brain works and adjusted the coaching for my exact needs. She worked with me to meet my goals to finish my semester in college and to find other things I like to do. I highly recommend working with her. “

Cameron Thompson


“Heidi’s enthusiasm is infectious.  Just being around her begs the question, “Why don’t I believe in myself more?” No reason to let that be rhetorical… she’s got other questions and exercises up her sleeve to help get to the answer. I am so grateful to have Heidi in my corner and in my life. She is remarkable.”

Heather Wuthrich


“Working with Heidi has been a great combination of fun and insight for me. She understands the challenges of going through difficult life transitions and helps to illuminate how personal values and life choices can be lined up. Her many skills include knowing when and how to gently push and when to lighten up. I strongly recommend her for life coaching!”

Barbara McKesson


“When I met Heidi, I was reeling from a bad break-up.  Her coaching literally changed my life by expertly changing my perspective … and she helped me get there on my own!  Heidi has taught me how to incorporate what I’ve learned into my daily life.  Now I’m confident that if life hands me more tough situations I have the tools to handle them.”

I Advocate for YOU; what does that mean?

  • Support and Representation: Advocates may provide support, representation, and a voice for those who may not have the means or opportunity to advocate for themselves.
  • Promotion of Rights: Advocacy often involves standing up for the rights of individuals or groups, especially in cases where those rights may be threatened, overlooked, or violated.
  • Awareness and Education: Advocates seek to inform and educate others about the issues, raising awareness and understanding of specific concerns.
  • Collaboration: Advocates often collaborate with like-minded individuals, organizations, and stakeholders to strengthen their impact and achieve common goals.
