TESTIMONIALS

"Sophia is a talented and experienced coach. I love working with her. She patiently listens, asks profound questions, and leads her session in a manner of self-discovery and exploration. Somehow I magically arrive to my own solutions with her gentle professional guidance. In a couple of sessions, Sophia helped me create my dream calendar that I love. It was scary and overwhelming to start setting goals at first. But Sophia masterfully laid out an easy to follow plan that turned this project into an inspiring session. Now full with dreams and with a clear vision ahead of me, I'm ready to start the New Year , all thanks to Sophia! Highly recommend!"

"Sophia is a phenomenal life coach! Her communication style is genuine and warm, guiding her clients through helpful exercises n an easy conversational style. She listens thoroughly and offers concise, helpful feedback with a plan for making progress toward your life goals."

"Sophia's class lecture about how discerning tourists seek personal transformations when they travel to other cultures was one of the main highlights of the semester for my students.  She commanded the attention of the students with her easy and confident demeanor, and she explained her ideas really well using discussion, clear examples and anecdotes.  Sophia is a natural communicator, able to convey complex ideas to audiences as demanding as a group of university students."

~Dr. Duarte B. Morais, Associate professor of Equitable and Sustainable Tourism, NC State University

"The most powerful thing about working with Sophia is that you can FEEL that she LOVES her work.  She is genuinely invested in her client's progress.  Sophia's passion shines through her deep listening skills, her ability to ask specific questions, and especially in the clarity of her organized follow up.  The "game plan" Sophia left me with put me right on the fast track to identifying and achieving my goals.  Since our work together, I feel a huge RELIEF for having a sense of direction.  Sophia is a master of harnessing the creative process and making it actionable.  I am so grateful for our work together, and recommend her with utmost respect.
