"I can’t think of a better word for Shelley than “Coach”. We have been close professionally and personally and, in hindsight, coaching has been her talent and her passion from the first job we collaborated on two decades ago. She is one of the top performers in our industry and she defies any accurate, traditional job title. She is an amazing listener. She gains trust and credibility with her clients and understands their motivation, their needs, and what will both satisfy them and challenge them. For the agency team, she steered us to creative choices to create the desired impact, on deadline and within budget. She’s a skilled diplomat, evangelist, negotiator, and adjudicator. In the course of a job she was cheerleader, confessor mediator, referee, and score-keeper."
"My first experience of Shelley as a certified coach to guide me to my full potential impressed me with both her command of the Positive Psychology Principles and the application of its tools. I experienced tangible results overnight. Quite exciting!"
“I highly recommend this workshop for anyone who wants to clear their mind and look inside with a new perspective. Shelley has opened my eyes to a completely new way of seeing my history. After years of more traditional therapies, this is very refreshing and I love the results of my newfound point of view.”
“Shelly’s thoughtful approach to connecting with people is at the core of her work. She has a unique way of focusing on specific themes in our lives and understanding their effect on the human psyche. I immediately felt at ease with her and I look forward to taking future workshops or working with her one-on-one.”

“When Covid hit New York hard late March this year I had a level of anxiety that crippled me and I was struggling through the days. Literally my turning point in learning to deal with the “new normal” was joining Shelley in one of her coaching sessions. Shelley has an incredible ability to understand your emotional struggles and without taking over, with empathy, and coaches you to a better place.”
“So, the coaching process helps you understand who you are, what your values are. But for someone who doesn’t have many ideas about coaching, you get to know yourself and nail down your values. Shelly is right there to help you in that process. She kind of takes you under her wing and guides you through different kinds of exercises like visualizations, meditation, kind of breathing exercises to stay in your body and connect with what’s going on. So that was very helpful. It helps me to tune in more with myself again and connect to my strengths and get the energy I need to take the next steps for a change.
She’s an excellent listener. Through the methods she uses, like visualizations or some breath work, really resonated with me. So bringing in some spirituality, but just like a little more connection with your body, mind, and soul. She’s a really good listener, a lovely person, a human being, and I can recommend her to anyone.
If you are looking to understand your values, your strengths, and where you are in your life and to work with somebody who helps you to take whatever you want to do to the next level, I think Shelly is your person.”
