"After working with Julie Ann, my heart is available in such a different way. Wow...Que fuerte! I am so grateful for her capacity to hold a safe, inviting, powerful space of creativity. I experienced a sense of generative energy, beautiful and powerful and immensely rare. Julie Ann - gracias for the coaching into an enlivening ground, gracias for your practice and work to develop this talent and exquisite capacity to facilitate this very fine tuned healing." - Cecilia R.
"Julie Ann's questions help me think deeper in a state of joy and positivity. I really appreciate that if I come to a session feeling happy and relatively centered, she doesn't go searching for a "deep dark spot" or problem that needs some sort of fixing. In my experience, coaches aren't often very good at that so bravo! I also find the visualizations of my past, present, and future selves particularly powerful because it is interesting to see the subtle differences between the images that come to mind as we shift through the timeline. And Julie Ann's rhythm, pace, and tone really make all the difference. The importance of these are often underestimated, but it really makes all the difference. She responds to what I share really well." - Elise W.
"I had been stuck in a rut. Unable to get out of my own way, dealing with bad luck, poor health, and all the grit of life. I had exhausted my 'healthy outlook toolbox,' trying every trick to pull myself up with little to no results. Julie Ann’s guided meditation sessions helped me gently get outside of my thoughts, let go of my torments, and reclaim space that had been blocked up. Working with Julie Ann, I found a new perspective... and have a new found peace with my surroundings. Mostly, I have melted away much toxicity and painful holding on. I feel a reawakening of my whole body and have discovered 'letting go' on a much more deep, internal level. It’s like I’m gently shaking hands with myself in a new way now. Julie Ann shone a bright light in my direction, and she is a true blessing." - Melisa K.
"Julie Ann helped me focus on what was holding me back and what I could do in a joyful and whole-hearted way to move forward and get the results I needed... She is fun to work with and always left me feeling much better and more confident about my ability to persuade others that the cause I am working for is important and valuable. She is a wonderful person - warm and giving - and a pleasure to work with." - Kathryn W.
"Julie Ann opens up the heart of the person and teaches in such a way that one actually learns. Julie Ann has the extraordinary skill of listening to hear. Her feedback was invaluable.

"Julie Ann is an exceptionally affirming and effective coach. The sessions, for me, were a wonderful collaboration examining goals and objectives, possible strategies to achieve them and setting realistic timelines to get there. I recommend coaching with Julie Ann not only to people starting on a new endeavor, but to those who might be feeling blocked from progressing in their business. Julie Ann can get you rolling!" - Alison B.
"Julie Ann instinctively knows how to challenge me. She zeros in on the emotional core of the situation and pushes me to work with it in a new way. Her manner is playful and supportive, but never cliché or conventional. I truly cannot predict what she will tell me, and I love that." - Tamar S.
"Julie Ann is an organizational expert and all round badass mama. She has been immensely helpful in thinking deeply and strategically about how to develop our communications systems, administrative roles responsibilities, financial systems, & fundraising, all while keeping us aligned with our individual heart missions and nurturing a work/life balance. Julie Ann also facilitated our retreat so that we all could all participate fully and effectively in the important conversations we needed to have." - Survivor Theatre Project
