I met Barbara at a time in my life when I desperately needed understanding, direction, guidance and support. She became my mentor, gently opening my mind and heart to living my life with a level of awareness and purpose that I was not able to see by my own power. Barbara shared with me the wisdom and knowledge that she has gained through her own life experiences and growing pains, to help me see that I had the ability to look at a challenging situation in a different light which in turn pointed me toward a solution. I can honestly say that without her help, I would not be where I am today, and I would not be the strong, confident person I am today. I have learned from her example that by owning my decisions and behavior, while being inquisitive and willing to learn—about myself, about life, and about the people around me—I can continue to evolve into the person I was born to be. Barbara has been an immeasurable gift in my life!

Barbara, you were one of the best gifts I ever gave myself!
I have heard before that when the student is ready, the teacher appears.
I have truly found this to be the case. From your coaching I became clear on reaching goals I had given up on. I have learned that I do not have to give up my needs or who I am because of my prior concern of pleasing others. I am in my flow and gravitating to pleasure. As I continue to have what I call magical moments I am in gratitude for clarity, growth and action…Thank you.

You’ve been a great coach for me for decades. Real. Practical. Authentic. Wise. Relevant. Results.

You have an amazing ability to pull the curtain back to see the truth behind what and why I make excuses for my behavior. Your gift with words and verse gives me a crystal clear understanding of things, and the wisdom behind your words has guided me through difficult and dramatic changes to improve my life! Your never-ending desire to learn—to grow and stretch yourself, and to help me grow, to my potential. You are an amazing force, Barbara. I am so blessed and grateful to have you in my life, and I love you.

You are the best listener I know, very intuitive about feelings and emotions, and always bravely striving to better yourself.
~ Barbara S. – Florida
You are an active listener. I feel heard when sharing with you even when I “babble”. This is not something I take for granted with most people. You are non-judgmental. I feel like you are accepting of my humanness. You are trustworthy. I feel that my secrets are safe with you. You have encouraged and promoted my growth to become the best “me” I can be.

It is difficult to put into words the transformation I have undergone as a result of working with Barbara. As I write this, I do so with a confidence and belief in myself that was never realized until I was able to trust in Dr. Barbara’s wisdom, patience and encouragement to open up to an aliveness, which had been lying dormant for the better part of my life. I wish the whole world could experience the positive changes that I have. I now have the privilege of living each day of the rest of my life with self-love and respect. Nobody should ever settle for less! Thank you!
