Nicole has been such a supportive, proactive, and reliable coach. 

She doesn't just go by the books, and I really liked the flexible dynamic nature of our coaching. I can really trust her and rely on her guidance to execute things. 

After completing her program, I discovered so many new insights about myself and gained clarity on my values, career plan, and what I need to do to better myself and my leadership. 

Gaining confidence was such a big factor for me and with Nicole’s help, I was able to successfully deliver an important keynote presentation in front of a large audience - my first live presentation in 4 years and to my largest audience to date. 

This was definitely a good investment for me and I won’t hesitate to re-engage Nicole for future services as my career progresses.

It has been life-changing working with Nicole in the last few months. Nicole is an extremely intuitive, empathic and highly skilled coach. She helps empower you with the right methods and tools, allowing you to be more in control of your situations. She listens attentively and articulates my issues in detail, connecting all the links together while breaking down how each finding can contribute to my struggles. This has been extremely informative for me as it provides me with knowledge in allowing me to understand how my issues were initiated but most importantly, gave Nicole the opportunity to create an effective and practical plan to help me overcome my issues.


Nicole and I have worked on many aspects of my life which includes childhood trauma, family relationship and dynamic, the importance of a strong and healthy lifestyle, and much more. In each topic, we have had many ground breaking discoveries and growth! I'm extremely satisfied with her guidance and am grateful for all the progress she has allowed me to achieve. I'm genuinely pleased and excited to continue more session with Nicole so I can reach my full potential with a healthy body and mindset!
