“Over the course of a year when I worked with Karla, I recognized that the personal growth and career opportunities I sought were much more attainable than I had initially considered. Her ability to shift my perspective, frame my thinking, assess my reactions, and focus my responses to any situation were remarkable. As I was navigating new chaos and new situations caused by the pandemic and by shifts in executive leadership structures in my organization, I had Karla as my guide who stepped into my world and encouraged me to “be uncomfortable” and try to understand everyone’s personal agenda. I am thankful I had the opportunity to work with her, and I have such gratitude for her help as I secured a notable promotion.” Britt Mattern – Managing Director, KP HealthConnect, NCAL, TPMB Technology Leadership

“I wanted to improve my performance at work and bring back the joy I once had in my career, so I contacted Karla. After the first session, I knew that what she brought was going to help. I felt heard and validated. I also was given “homework,” which really helped me focus on and fine-tune my concerns, some I didn’t even know I had. Karla offered many helpful ideas and solutions and empowered me to find my own. She helped me realize the gifts that I bring to my job are the gifts that give my life meaning. Karla is warm, supportive, wise, intuitive and brings a sense of spirit into her work, not to mention years of experience in the professional world.
