“I learned more in three Skype sessions with Jen from halfway across the globe than I did in years of sitting in therapy. You just handed me the information that I needed (no, that I craved) and I felt like a dying tree being revived by a rainstorm. Like manna from heaven. Clarity crystallizing from out of the fog. For that, I will be forever grateful!”

WHAT IS GIFTEDNESS?
Giftedness is a mind construction – a way we take in the world, perceive and organize it. That construction is statistically uncommon, in terms of speed, complexity and intensity, and many gifted people don’t recognize they are gifted because they think everyone else is like them. The way a gifted person expresses their giftedness depends on many factors, such as type (intellectual only, or intellectual plus emotional, creative, and so on), level (mild, moderate, high, exceptional or profound), presence of other challenges (such as learning disabilities or neurological abnormalities), and the amount of support, recognition, appreciation and mirroring they’ve had in their lives. In other words, giftedness does not always look the same and is not a one-size-fits-all concept. Each gifted person’s mind comes with its own unique challenges and opportunities, and that’s what we help our gifted clients to embrace and constructively co-create with in their lives!
ABOUT OUR WORK
“Jen was the right light at the right time for me. I had spent a good portion of my early adult life trying to figure myself out and how I fit into the world, and while I had made significant progress, there were missing pieces – the gifted pieces – that were keeping me stuck. Jen helped me fill in those missing pieces and ‘unlock the whole’ so that I could move forward. Without her coaching and guidance, there were aspects of myself I don’t think I would have ever embraced, let alone even recognized. Jen is an exceptional coach and human being, and should you ever have the opportunity to work with her, grab it with arms wide open!”
“It has been a true privilege to work with Jen. I can honestly say that no one has ever gotten me the way she does; she really understands me and is highly compassionate. I’ve never felt as safe talking about my frantic inner world as I feel with her. Jen has a remarkable intuitive touch that is hard to describe, which she combines with lots of experience, knowledge and preparation for each session. When we started the coaching process I felt overwhelmed and lost in life, things looked great on the outside and I was doing a ton of stuff, but on the inside I felt scattered and disheartened; “is this all there is?” Luckily things are changing, and changing fast, paradoxically by slowing down. Coaching with Jen isn’t just about action-planning, it goes to a deeper level of changing yourself and your surrounding world by finding and expressing who and what you are at your core. This has been more profound than I could have possibly imagined! You’ll need to experience it yourself to really understand it, and I highly recommend that you do!”
“Michelle has helped my clients successfully navigate what has been some of the most difficult periods of their lives. She is reliable and conscientious with her practice, and thorough and timely with her reports. I always find Michelle to uphold the highest professional and ethical standards in treating her clients. She is a pleasure to work with.”
“In the time I’ve spent working with Jen, I’ve learned many things. Of these lessons learned the most important to me was learning to accept that life is full of positive experiences and negative experiences, positive people and negative people. Many of the variables in our lives are not within our control. We can’t control everything that happens, and we can’t control how other people act. The only thing we can control is ourselves and the way we react to life’s many circumstances. Jen helped me learn how to accept myself, and my life fully. She taught me to accept that the worst may happen but to go out and live my life anyway because a life of fear is not really a life at all. Jen helped me to take control of my life again and in doing so I got my life back.”
“Jen, I just wanted to tell you that I’m extremely grateful that I’ve found you on my path at this moment of my life. I could have stayed prisoner of my old limiting way of thinking for 10 more years. Your genuine and professional coaching is for me a powerful tool for rapid transformation. Thank you!”
