Jon’s a coach who knew when to hold space for me when I was exposing my vulnerability and when to challenge me when I was pulling back in fear. This allowed me to fully process the most important events of my life and to make breakthroughs to live a better life.J.H., Corporate Director
Working with Jon has been more impactful and results driven than any therapy, professional development, or self-help work I’ve done over the past 10 years. His ability to ask questions and more importantly listen allowed me to identify and focus on the key areas of my life I wanted to change.E.T., Director of Development
Last year I started to work with Jon because I’m the founding member of a startup and had become overly focused on my professional life. Things had become too one dimensional. Jon helped me to open things up and see possibilities.T.K., CTO
