If there is one word to describe..... it would be EFFECTIVE. At the start of my work with her I was a bit skeptical...but (her) patient, skilled and methodical style brought me to the place I was trying to get to ... I would recommend working with (her) to anyone. She is an amazing listener and truly gifted in her craft of helping you on your journey.

Coached me through a very emotionally charged situation. Her calm demeanor and professional presence allowed me to process my feelings and lead to an outcome that was truly life changing. It's an experience I certainly won't forget.

I had the honor of interacting with Gerry and she is one of the most amazing people that I’ve met.

Germaine and I trained as coaches together. I took an instant liking to her. If you're looking for someone grounded and caring, with a nice leavening of humor, give her a call. Because of her experience with ADHD, she sees things in novel and insightful ways.
