“After working with Andrew for just a few months, I was able to break through several barriers that were holding me back from living a healthier and more fulfilling life. Andrew's coaching is inspiring and motivating, and I thoroughly enjoy his engaging, insightful style that makes each session fun and enriching.”
Dan Henderson / Project Manager
“Your high integrity and positive intent helped me discuss my goals openly and be coached through the process. Your commitment level and presence was empowering. I was able to express myself with complete integrity of thought, visualize my journey, and commit to next steps. There was a significant shift in my being which will help me achieve my goals.”
Sayeesh Naik / Senior Manager, Accenture
"Andrew is a very warm, creative, and insightful coach. In one coaching session, for example, he challenged my perspective of how I view myself. Although he humbly considered his insight a simple comment, it was highly transformative and quite fundamental in my quest to become a better leader.”
