For the past few years, I have felt broken and incomplete. I would hear myself say things like, “What’s wrong with me?” or “Why can’t I just be happy?”
My inner self-critic had a stronghold over me and shook me to the core. I am a mother to two young children, I have been teaching for over 15 years, and I’ve had bouts with chronic pain. I felt burned out, overwhelmed, and riddled with anxiety.
Connecting with Erika has been life-changing and transformative. At our first meeting, I felt at ease, like Erika spoke my language. We dove right into the Enneagram results and a new world opened up for me. She created a safe space for me to explore my authentic fears and desires—without judgment. Our sessions expanded my self-awareness and revealed the “why” behind the things I think and do. She offered insightful strategies and take-home techniques to put in place. After our session, I feel a renewed sense of gratitude, empowerment, and sense of purpose and acceptance.
Working with her has been one of the best gifts I’ve given myself and I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
It was helpful for me, and probably my coworkers, to have me “explained”. We are who we are after all 😉 not that we can’t work on ourselves still.
It was interesting that I sat next to a coworker who is pretty much my polar opposite, yet we work well together, and now maybe she won’t take my “direct approach” so personally and maybe I will be a bit more sensitive to her “sensitivity”. It was also helpful, or at least interesting, to see another coworker who is my same Type, an 8, appear to be so different from me. She can certainly be direct, but I think she holds back much that she would like to say.
Overall, it was reassuring to learn more about my Type, an 8 wing 7, mostly because it broke the myth that we are only direct and tough, when in reality, we are extremely caring and do for others.”
My coaching sessions with Erika have been extremely beneficial for my well being!
As well as achieving a work-life balance and building on my financial success, my strength to tackle my stressors has grown! My attitude towards life has improved and my hope for the future has brightened.”
I was interested to learn more about my Enneagram type and be able to use the knowledge to help me grow in different areas of my life. Erika maked me feel very comfortable, was extremely organized, and very knowledgeable. She suggested many great questions to ponder, and exercises to do to help me process through some beliefs that had been limiting me. Working with Erika has helped me understand more about myself and the people I care most about. I have gained some great tools and insight to use, going forward.”
Before working with Erika I was struggling with low self worth and many medical issues. Erika has a gifted way of searching and developing a plan that is unique to each person’s need at that moment. With her help I was able to find value in myself and make a determination to regain my health. I was able to lose 50 pounds.
This journey would not have been successful without the guidance Erika tailored for me. Erika really listened because she truly cared about who I was as a person. I am so thankful Erika is part of my life.”
Erika is an astonishingly talented coach. She is one of a kind. She is incredibly knowledgeable about so many topics, how they intertwine, how they affect one another. And she taught me so much about how my mental state affects the rest of my body and my energy. I learned more about my mindset, reshaping my attitude, meditation and stress management in new ways – that actually work. I now get it. I can slow down, breathe, be present and have intention, which has been hard for me in the past. Erika also taught me about dedication, consistency, and self-discipline. But what makes her an amazing coach to me is that she never once made me feel like a failure. She never let me give up. She is tough and kind, and she can distill information like no one else. In my mind, there is no better coach out there!”
