“Through Stacy’s questions and advice, we started to identify my vision and what I value. Stacy helped me start to recognize that I need to be in an environment where I can carry out my own vision. I also started to realize that a lot of my values like being flexible, honest, hard working, genuine, authentic, autonomy, leadership, and loyal didn’t match up to my current environments. Too often than not, I didn’t believe in myself or stick up for my vision. I also realized that I was making a lot of assumptions in life. Those voices in my head would comment on an interaction with a friend or colleague and always make me think the worst of the situation. I can’t tell you how great it feels to not let those assumptions control me anymore.” Excerpt from “Silencing the Negativity to Unleash Greatness” Blog post.

“Before I started working with Stacy, I felt like I was just going through the motions in my daily life, and I started to very acutely feel like I was watching my life pass me by. I had moved out of the city, far away from work and friends, to live with my then-boyfriend, and my quality of life was quickly deteriorating. I knew something was very wrong, but I felt unable (or unwilling) to pinpoint anything other than ‘I feel sad and unhappy.’
During our first session, Stacy coached me through my feeling surrounding what I perceived as a dissolution in my relationships with my best friends from high school. In this seemingly unrelated topic, she was able to help me realize the root cause of my unhappiness and my disconnect from my friends: my relationship. Stacy hit a nerve, no doubt about that, but it was exactly what I needed. After just one session, I was able to do what I’d wanted to do for months – end my relationship and move back into DC. That was four months ago, and yet I still keep the notes from our first few coaching calls in my nightstand, and use methods from our sessions on nearly a daily basis.”

“Admittedly, I was a little bit skeptical about the idea of life coaching at first – it sounded a little too “new age-y” for me. But one of my friends swore by it, and I had been experiencing some frustrations at work – the source of which wasn’t entirely clear to me – so I decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did. After only four sessions working with Stacy, I had a much clearer conception of why I was feeling frustrated at work, and, more importantly, I was able to get back in touch with many of the values that motivate me both personally and professionally. Exploring those values helped me reorient my disposition – it helped me rediscover meaning in aspects of my work where I had been encountering a sense of triviality and aggravation. What I think was the most impressive about working with Stacy, specifically, was that she has a knack for making deep insights seem intuitive. She was really a pleasure to work with, and I’m confident that the insights derived from our sessions will continue to stick with me and inform the way I work and view myself.”
