“Jen has a warm, artful way of guiding her clients to explore options and solutions. After sessions with Jen, I felt relaxed, at peace, and assured. I am normally very solution-oriented, but was stuck on my own. Jen challenged my assumptions and pushed back in a non-threatening way, opening my aperture a bit. I found a new perspective as well as new options that I hadn’t considered. Jen is also great at discerning my values, keeping me accountable to them, and not avoiding hard conversations.”Austin W.,Venture Investor & Consultant
“Jen was adept at picking up my self sabotaging tendencies. She challenged those assumptions in a way that wasn’t confrontational. She gave me a structured space to articulate my thoughts and opened my eyes in a new way to what success looks like and how to find wins in ambiguity”John C,Private Equity
“Jen challenged me in new ways while still honoring how I show up as a leader. I felt like my perspective was fully being heard and came out of the session feeling at peace with actionable next steps that felt realistic.”Adanta A,Non-profit Education Chief Program Officer
