Coaching and Mentoring
Gail is able to quickly get to the heart of the matter but at the same time is kind, compassionate and deeply supportive. She met me where I was at and then we moved forward together. We explored issues in a creative way that had a very high payoff for me.— Paula DeMasi
You have had a huge impact on my life as a mentor and coach, and I appreciate the ways in which you always help me to look at things in a new way. Your perspective is always refreshing, and often asks me to look toward that edge. That is where the greatest growth occurs, and for that I am grateful. – M.B.
generous and empathetic

compassion and insight
Gail's brilliant coaching has helped our son in his struggles with unemployment and self doubt. Her compassion and insight are a continued resource to help him gain the life skills to make it through this difficult time. – L.M.M.
open and nonjudgmental
Gail is very intelligent and perceptive. These qualities make her an excellent coach. She has helped me immeasurably in gaining insight into areas where I am "stuck", and has guided me in figuring out how to move past these entrenched patterns. She is open and nonjudgmental in providing that guidance. She is a fantastic coach. – L.R.
Gail is curious and listens deeply to the client. Using the client's agenda as a framework, she allows the client to see deeper than they were able to on their own. I did not hear her invested in a "fix and solve" kind of listening. I also was able to see her "see" her client's expressions and body language and found her to be very attuned to what was going on in real time.– V.W.S.
astute and encouraging
, As a mentor, Gail is very astute in identifying my strengths and stretches in coaching and is very generous with sharing her experience and is always encouraging. Gail often asked me to get very specific about either my outcomes or insights and comparisons I am more confident to explore the emotions under the words my client is speaking to enable deeper questioning and great insights for them.—G.K., ACC
Gail’s collaborative style of coaching ensures ownership and active participation. She has a unique approach of guided self-discovery which helped me to elicit answers hidden in my heart which I hadn’t been able to release on my own. She’s very perceptive about whether a path of exploration is working or not, and quickly adjusts approach if needed. I’ve been able to make some really positive changes with her help! —C.K., Hewlett-Packard
