Colleen really helped me to talk through my ideas and start to explore new paths. With her support, I was able to see things I hadn’t been able to see before and then the changes I wanted were possible.

As a culturally diverse person, finding a good fit was important to me. Colleen effortlessly formed a trusting relationship with me. I felt comfortable sharing my feelings and ideas. She understood my vision and showed me how to execute the small details. Her problem solving approach and assignments got me unstuck and helped me move forward successfully.

Colleen had the ability to hold space for me, something I had not experienced before. I felt safe and validated, moving at my own pace, as she kept me on track and held me accountable. She is real and for me, she was a “slam dunk”!
