Coaching with Emma has transformed my self-trust and self-care. She has helped me hear my voice, claim my space, and exercise my right to decide who I want to be and what I want to give my energy to. She also helped me embrace self-care as a mindset, not just a practice. Coaching with Emma has helped me find insight and inspiration to take action on health, relationship, and professional goals, and I am so proud of how I now see myself!


Inner Work

Being an entrepreneur calls you to soul search. In order to grow your business you have to do the inner work to grow yourself. Thank goodness I have invested in Emma’s coaching in order to have a regular check in to stretch, grow, work through obstacles, set goals, and have a PLAYful accountability partner.


Feeling Good

I highly recommend getting your brain coached with Emma! I had so many great takeaways from working with Emma that I will apply to my personal life and business. One of the biggest takeaways was learning how to think about the things I have to do in a more playful way. Now I think to myself, “How can I have fun with not-so-fun things like washing the dishes or putting the clothes away?” This has really helped me with getting things done and better yet, feel good in the process.
