what they say...
“I had never worked with a life coach before, but after leaving teaching due to the pandemic, I felt truly lost. I’m close to 60, my immune system would definitely lose if it went toe to toe with the virus, and for the last 20 years I’ve been in the classroom. In our first session, Luisa very pragmatically asked me what I could see myself doing, what would make me happy. I kept coming back to working with kids...but not 32 at a time. At the end of our first session, I still felt a bit lost. But... Luisa has a way of planting a seed - or helping you to plant it - and that seed rattles around while you contemplate whatever obstacle you’re facing, and - if you’re like me - you realize the seed is all you need; you have the space, and the topsoil, and the water already, but now that you have that seed you can grow something great. For me the seed was the idea that I could *still* teach without entering another classroom; I could tutor. And while I’d never considered being self-employed before, a few days later I had my website up and I’d signed up with multiple tutoring platforms. I’m eager to continue the conversation with Luisa and exchange ideas; I know she’ll plant another seed...and this one will help turn my three students into thirty. Thank you, Luisa!

"Luisa, with her active and welcoming listening helps us with shaping our projects. She explained very clearly how a coach works and, with her pragmatic questions, she guides us on building the pieces of what we want to accomplish. What really touched me is that I felt her great sensibility in respecting the client's rhythm and, in my perception, that is crucial for making progress in a solid and tranquil way."
CELINA BERNARDES, SOCIAL WORKER
"I had no idea of what coaching meant, but after my experience with Luisa, I fully appreciate its value. Luisa's guidance can (and will) help me to achieve my personal and professional goals. She is a positive influence who reminds me of what I really want at this point in my life. Above all, she made me realize that I wasn't "crazy" at all in following my heart ;) "
