Thanks for all your coaching over the past few months! You have been such a source of strength for me. I feel like I have my life back thanks to you.
Your go-to-it-iveness (aka: goal-setting) consistently reminds me of all that is possible in life. From planning a trip to Machu Picchu with your kids to climbing mountains and completing triathlons, you are an inspiration to me, as I'm sure to many other women.
In conversations with you, I always find great logic and honesty that is so refreshing. I have incorporated many pieces of your wisdom into my life. “Make life more convenient” (there's a laundry basket in the kitchen now to catch the days dirty clothes). “Give the kids baths only if they smell.” (I regularly perform "smell checks.") Thanks for all your support in big and small ways.
With Julie’s coaching I have burst out of my staleness into a vibrant reawakening of self. In just a few appointments, long dormant passions and aspirations have gained a foothold and are coming to fruition. Julie’s coaching is life changing.
I was reluctant to engage a life coach. When I finally took the leap I was blessed to find Julie O’Keeffe. Julie has been the perfect life coach for me at this point in my life. She told me early on that she would not give me the answers to solve my current roadblocks. She believed I already had the answers inside of me.
She was right! Julie continually gives me a space to discuss aloud the blocks I believe are keeping me from moving on in my life. Discussing those perceived blocks in a safe space has allowed me to enter into a better, more open relationship with my adult children. I’m also feeling passionate again about completing my MA thesis. Best of all, I find myself taking time to consider that my knee-jerk responses to life may be erroneous.
Many thanks to Julie for her cheerleading, her open ears and her open heart. I so appreciate having her in my corner!

I just wanted to thank you for all your help in “coaching" me. I find you to be insightful, intelligent and caring. I also admire your own physical accomplishments and perseverance in achieving your own lofty goals. I only wish that I lived closer to you, so that I could meet you and discuss life while having a cup of coffee together.
Best Wishes, Tom
I meant it yesterday when I thanked you for all you have done for me in just a few short sessions. Talking is something I do just too much of; listening on the other hand is sometimes something I do not do enough of. However, starting with the first time we spoke, I began to listen. The questions you asked were dead on for me: describe a time when you felt strong, confident, and able to conquer anything and think how you might use the same skills and approach now.
Helping someone is about listening to them and being skilled enough to cut through the noise and get to the heart of what someone is really saying. You were able to do that for me. I feel like weights have been lifted from my shoulders.

The class was highly inspirational and provided actionable techniques for accomplishing what is most important to me. I would suggest taking the class if you are not achieving your full potential or seem to be stalled.

Before working with Julie and the other classmates, I knew I had the ability to become the person that I wanted to be, but was having a hard time achieving it. With Julie's coaching I was able to understand on a deeper level what is important to me, what inspires me, and what I can do right now to make that real. I have renewed motivation to take action toward these goals and have developed a wellness plan and dreams. Evaluating each of the pillars of my life turned a light on in me that I didn't even realize was off. What changed my life most was committing to take a specific action, evaluating myself and making a commitment to myself.
