Ginny is a fantastic coach and I've hired enough over the years to know! Her approach is direct but very kind. I felt safe to talk openly about what was going on for me, and Ginny's questions and prompts helped me make revelations that were game-changing when it came to the issues I'd brought to our sessions. Ginny's extensive experience in work and life, along with her vast wealth of training, makes her an exceptional coach. She couples it with the calm energy she brings and her gift for articulating exactly what you need to hear at each moment. If you feel stuck, like you're not fulfilling your potential or like you just can't figure out what your next steps should be, you need Ginny.Marsha Shandur

Ginny has a superb combination of attentiveness, compassionate and analytical mind. I feel heard, as she notices subtle physical and emotional cues as I talk and asks exactly the right questions that help me get in touch with my deeper yearnings. She then helps translate those yearnings into achievable action steps. After each session, I recognize the shift.Mina
