You gave me great tools for the rest of my life
Josie, I really appreciate you finding the way to go beyond my intellectual / logical thoughts and helping me to find my inner triggers and hidden feelings during our coaching sessions. I appreciated you being 'real' and sharing your expertise and experiences to assist me in finding and clarifying my goals, values and the tools and techniques to help along the way. You gave me great tools I will now have for the rest of my life. You walk the talk, live “think well and wellness” and demonstrate an inner joyfulness that inspires me to continue along this journey. Thank you.
