“Jewel is an amazingly perceptive, insightful, and warm person. She helps you help yourself, but  is right there guiding you gently. She offers a different perspective than those you may have thought of yourself, a different way of thinking, so that suddenly you can see your issue in a much more helpful and clarifying way.

She points out strengths and positive qualities that you might not even have been aware you had, in an affirming and strengthening way. She can also see areas that you need to work on and encourages that growth in a non-judgemental way. She makes you a better person.

I always feel better after talking to her.”

“Jewel is a uniquely caring and helpful person. Deeply empathetic, she seems to understand the core of a person after a brief conversation. And she doesn’t just understand—she knows how to guide you, in a loving way, into making changes. These changes may be subtle, but they help you shake off all the layers of baggage and emerge as that better version of yourself you hadn’t realized was waiting underneath. She cuts right through the excuses and the explanations we put up around our issues, but she does it in such an accepting, loving way that you not only see your issues for what they are, you feel like they aren’t as bad as you were making them out to be. Working with Jewel is like reconnecting to an old friend—you laugh, you cry, and you leave feeling renewed.”

“I took this workshop with Jewel and it was great!

After putting us all at ease, and ensuring a safe environment with complete confidentiality and mutual respect between attendees, Jewel asked us to work on something that we had been struggling with and provided exercises to improve in that area.

I really appreciated how she asked us to set tiny goals that were actually possible to accomplish! I was able to take these new behaviors and implement them into my life.  I felt a sense of accomplishment and success and continue to incorporate them daily as I move towards my goal.

I recommend working with Jewel for anyone who wants to improve on any aspect of their life!”

Jewel you have helped me more than you can imagine.  I still have a long way to go but I would have been lost without you. Not only that, you believe in me and that means the world to me

   —Dan P

Jewel is a very compassionate and empathetic person. Her approach to coaching will open your eyes and let you see the issues from a different perspective. She will help you untangle your problems and tell you exactly what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. There are no countless "what do YOU think?" questions. Her strategy is to make you pause, rethink and move forward looking objectively at the problem. She will explain and show examples of real life situations which help you understand where the problems are coming from.
