CASE STUDIES

FROM FREELANCE TO FOUNDER

“The transformation I made with Avery is hard to sum up in a quote but let's say the headline is: “it was life-changing.” I used to be a frustrated freelance advertising strategist fed up with the toxic environment. I needed a way out that was feasible and created joy. Avery unpacked all my bad habits and worked with me to overcome them. She also helped me get comfortable leaning into my skills as an idea generator. With her help, I co-founded a branding and marketing company for mission-driven startups, launched my product supporting moms of kids with special needs, and got a book deal to tell my son's story focused on dyslexia and giving moms a voice. I could have never done this without Avery. She has this amazing mix of pushing, teaching, and healing that I had never before experienced. She is worth every penny of investment as I have been paid back in spades through all my ventures. I highly recommend this goddess to anyone in need of change looking for an amazing partner to support them along the way.”

FROM BURNOUT TO BALANCE

“When I met Avery, I was a burned out corporate lawyer, near tears daily, and in need of a reboot. I was looking for a coach who was not going to let me get away with anything; someone who was going to hold me accountable and make me look hard at what was holding me back and what would be a better fit for me. Avery and I hit it off immediately. She has a good sense off the bat for what people need from her and where their weak spots are. She is not afraid to say the hard things that people need to hear. She was excited about my progress and it showed.... I felt supported, energized, and relieved after every session and those feelings lingered, particularly as I engaged in my homework. I did not expect to feel differently so soon. I thought I would be miserable until I was working in a new field. Instead, the idea that I was getting the help I needed and seeing progress and a light at the end of the tunnel gave me a more quiet mind and a great deal of peace. I’ve now successfully transitioned into a role as in-house legal counsel for a non profit that is close to my heart. I could not be happier with the changes I’ve made with Avery’s support.”

FROM FINANCE TO ORGANIZATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY DEGREE

“My coaching experience with Avery was more useful than most of the therapy I’ve had over the last twenty years. She is really good at listening, knowing that you are an equally important collaborator in the process. Her expertise is in knowing precisely what is needed from her and applying the right combination of tools so as to direct you where you need to go. My favorite thing about coaching with Avery is that she is approachable, always very accessible, and non-judgmental. Working with her is like having a really wise friend by your side as you navigate big life challenges.”


FROM TECH SALES TO ROBOTICS

“When I brought Avery on to be my coach, I was at a standstill in my tech career. I wasn’t progressing, setting goals, or achieving tasks that contributed to my long-term plans. Avery changed all of this. She breathed new life and energy into me and my planning for the future. She helped me identify new strengths, fine-tune my message, determine where to head next, and set a plan of action on how to get there. Avery is first and foremost compassionate about her clients’ feelings and situations and helps them get out of ruts to kick into action. She’s a fantastic project manager and her accountability was key to my success in taking risks and pushing forward through the not so pleasant tasks like networking, emailing strangers, updating my personal brand (resume, cover letter, website), and more. I’m now working in robotics and love being at the cutting edge of technology. If you’re considering working with a coach, I cannot recommend Avery more highly.”



FROM TECHNICAL FOCUS TO PEOPLE FOCUS

“Avery helped me figure out a course to plot for my career goals. She worked with me to develop an inventory of my strengths, which gave me a great deal of personal insight. We then broke down my passions and values to design career profiles that would fit me. Going through this process gave me for the first time in years an idea of where I wanted to go for my next career move. Avery helped me to explore new possibilities I hadn't considered before, which ultimately allowed me move on from a technical architectural role into one that is more focused on leadership and influence at a company that aligns well with my values and skills. Our work also went beyond just career change and really got me thinking about what was important to me in the bigger picture. I can't speak highly enough of Avery during this process. She is an amazingly positive and encouraging person and working with her brought me new confidence and enthusiasm. Avery has a clear passion for helping others to become their best selves and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is stuck on their career journey and needs some help.”


FROM MOTHERHOOD TO WORKFORCE REENTRY

“The coaching I did with Avery was invaluable, she is truly an outstanding coach. She is curious and a great listener.  Avery helped me discover and articulate many of my ideas and desires.  Due to her coaching, I have transformed my life and goal paradigms for the better.  That is an invaluable tool that I will carry for life. She is an amazing listener, I have never had someone focus so intently on me and what I was saying. She was also challenging when needed but also very supportive. As a result of working with Avery, my confidence has soared! I highly recommend Avery for those who truly want to transform themselves and create life changes.”

FROM LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE TO PSYCHOLOGY DEGREE

“Avery is full of energy and life, and has a way of pulling your most positive and driven energy out of you. She has introduced me to ideas I would never have discovered without her guidance and genuine care. And that is probably the most important and appealing aspect of working with Avery - she genuinely cares. She will give you everything she has to help you achieve what you are looking to achieve. I have a greater understanding of myself now than at any other point in my life. She will help you identify the issues holding you back, help you break through them, and move on to the greatest version of yourself possible.”

FROM ZOOLOGY TO MBA

“I trust you. In our very first session you told me to quit a part time job that I hated. Everyone else was telling me to keep it because it looked good on my resume. You were unapologetic about telling me what you thought and how you felt I was losing sight of what I needed. You were right and I knew right then that I wanted to work with you more. As a scientist, I really didn't trust all the personality tests but then I saw how accurate they were. I also saw how your method works. You challenged me to step outside my comfort zone and try trusting the process, which I needed. Now, I reference some of those results and see them play out in my life. I feel more thoughtful and trusting in the universe. Plus, I find myself quoting you to others. You are really good at this job. Thank you."
