People say the nicest things…
“Audrey is rare. Like supernova rare. She has this uncanny ability to be deeply present with whatever and wherever you are and put you immediately at ease with both her and with yourself. This innate ability makes deep shifts possible. I worked with her for over a year. She has this simple and accessible way of approaching problems (and solutions) that is so full of grace and intelligence that change feels quiet and, well, fortifying. It was not fast. It was not easy. But I emerged out the other side at ease with imperfection and clear in some deep and abiding truths that will carry me and hold me for the rest of my life. Audrey is not just a coach. She is an intuitive leader, guide and partner in helping her clients connect with how to notice, understand, and maximize their own unique operating systems. Hire her and trust the process. She’s got you.”
“My experience of working with Audrey is a combination of embodiment, empathy, and smarts. She’s got that rare blend of practical knowledge (which means that I walked away from every single session with something doable and effective to work with), theoretical knowledge (she reads more papers and books on neuroscience and burnout than anyone I know), and deep empathy. She genuinely cares, and that radiates through every call.
When I started working with her, I was really stressed out, and struggling to keep on top of everything with my businesses and not feel like I was banging up against a brick wall every day. We did a series of sessions where she met me where I was, helped me get embodied with my current reality, and then worked with me to create a series of “experiments” — aka small and doable things — that would shift the patterns of stress and burnout I had created.
By the end of our time together, I not only felt better, I also had a set of tools that I’m still using nearly a year later.”
“Before working with Audrey, I was really confused about WHY I kept finding myself stressed, when I felt like I did “enough” to manage my stress already. Within one session, we got to places that have taken much longer with other coaches or therapists which surprised me. I feel like I gained a lot of clarity around what I really need to manage my stress in a healthy way. Audrey helped me slow down and connect to what was REALLY going on, and hear my own answers — they’re in there, and a great coach will ask you the right questions and help you find them. She totally did.
Audrey is truly a one-of-a-kind coach. She is just so chill and grounded and smart. She knows just what to say to shift your perspective and think about the problem you’re facing in a totally new way. She provides a safe, open space and just the right amount of support and pushing to help you both find the root of your stress and create an innovative way of fixing it.”
“In working with Audrey, I found a keen listener, someone able to really hear the underlying message to my situation and words. I also found a skilled practitioner, someone able to stay with me while I moved through my emotions, helping me stretch into what might be possible. Together we crafted next steps from my shifted perspective and hopefulness – they feel just right as I’ve stepped into them.
Even though the topic of our conversation was on a very familiar topic for me, Audrey was able to help me find a new and very useful perspective. I’d absolutely recommend her if you are feeling like you’ve explored it all and haven’t found a way through. Audrey is a trustworthy and top notch practitioner, a coach who brings incredible skill, humility and support while never forgetting her oh so crucial humor. Our time together was right on and a real treasure.”
“I did not know what to expect when the session began. I knew I would feel better after the hour was up because Audrey is great and I always feel better after we talk, but I was blown away at how she was able to circle in on exactly what I needed to hear. The questions she asked led me to understand why I was feeling a certain way, and she explained that the physical stress I was feeling was directly related to certain negative thoughts. Now only did we land on my WHY, but Audrey also gave me tips and support to move forward. Throughout the session I felt supported by her, never once judged, and she truly was working on behalf my best interests.
When we landed on WHY I was feeling the way I was feeling, I immediately felt a cloud lift. I’ve experienced other kids of energy healing before, and nothing – I mean NOTHING – was this drastic and helpful. After our hour session, I was able to get on with my day in a productive, confident way feeling more honest and grounded than I have in months.
Here’s the thing about Audrey. She wants to get to the root of the problem to help you move forward permanently. She’s not interested in surface-level stuff, her work digs deep and the benefits are long-lasting and eye-opening. She has a very clear was of explaining things and she’s committed to having her clients feel better and having more clarity by the end of a session.
Before my session with Audrey I was stressed and nervous. When we hung up the phone I was a different person: clear-headed, confident, happy.
Booking the session with Audrey was the best decision I have made in months. If you are feeling like you need some help, even if you can’t quite put your finger on what it is that’s nagging at you or how to move past it, the best decision you can make would be to book a session with Audrey. She is gifted at helping others, and her knowledge around healing is second to none!”
“Audrey guided our conversation confidently and she knew how to get to the heart of the issue. She is the type of person you want by your side. She is personable and truly cares, and her enthusiasm for coaching shines through.”
“I teach women how to use writing as a tool for personal growth, but still, sometimes my practice needs a little boost to get back in flow. That’s where Audrey comes in. She listens with generous curiosity, lobbing insightful questions that help me bust through the scrambled churn of swirling thoughts that have been known to run on infinite loop in my mind. With compassion, a side of delicious wit, and abundant support, she can help me get to the essence of what I need to look at and move forward on. I always feel better when I talk to Audrey; she’s kinda magic that way.”
“Audrey, our coaching session is a couple of days ago, and it still resonates with me like beautiful music… your precise intuition allowed me to see where I was standing in my own way. Your observations were to the point, yet always caring and supportive. You opened a window where I only saw a wall. Thank you.”
“When I started working with Audrey, I was going through a lot of big life changes. I had my first session with Audrey a couple weeks after I moved to SF, and I was so grateful to have her help me through the transition. I was staying with a friend while I looked for an apartment, and I was very stressed out during the process. Audrey was encouraging and supportive and very perceptive! She helped me to break things down so that everything wasn’t so overwhelming. I found her reflections to be particularly helpful because sometimes I was unaware of the language I was using or the tone of my voice. I really appreciated her perspective on what I sounded like, especially when mine was negatively skewed. I found talking things out to be very therapeutic as well as the various exercises she suggested.
Based on what I wanted to focus on, she would come up with a written, a visual, or a meditative exercise. I really benefited from these coaching sessions because I found myself letting go of worries and habits that didn’t serve me. Audrey helped me recognize exhausting thought patterns, and by increasing my awareness, I was able to be more mindful of what I was thinking about.
After a few sessions, I had what felt like a major break through. There was an issue that kept coming up, and once I was able to address it, Audrey helped me come up with ways of dealing with it. Just being able to acknowledge the issue was a huge deal to me, and now I feel confident that I will be able to recognize and handle similar situations in the future. I felt like I received great support, guidance, and reflections from Audrey, and I would definitely recommend working with her!”
One day, I was going through a particularly challenging time in my life and I found myself reading an e-newsletter. I felt encouraged to reach out to Audrey for advice as she always had such insightful and motivating things to say in class. Audrey quickly responded to me to offer her support. She spoke with me over the phone to understand what I was going through, and then came up with a list of initial suggestions that she thought may help with my struggles. This list included a book, two healing modalities, and a complimentary coaching session with her. After speaking with Audrey on the phone, I knew I wanted to work with her for many reasons. She believed in my healing, she heard strength in my voice, and she got me to start thinking about what it was that was missing from my life.
In working with Audrey I have learned how to tune in and understand my inner wisdom, how to better love myself, and how to identify the different areas in my life that I want to improve. Whether you have a specific goal you are looking to achieve and need some guidance to get there or you are completely lost and you need someone to turn on a light for you, I would recommend you work with Audrey. You will benefit from working with Audrey if you want to:
- Identify your goals and find a manageable way to work towards them
- Learn about yourself and discover what is most important to you in life
- Calmly approach any obstacles that may arise along the way
- Have someone to gently nudge you to open your mind up to new ways of thinking
- Think strategically and creatively, do meaningful ‘homework’ assignments, and enjoy some interesting reading recommendations
- Develop a relationship with someone who will move you to tears and make you laugh out loud, all in a matter of one phone conversation”

“During the one-on-one sessions with Audrey we laugh together, we share, we cry and we dig deep. I am incredibly grateful for Audrey. She is smart, wise and full of light!
I find myself living in the moment more often, seeing the gift of even the ugliest challenges and feeling how strong I truly am, inside and out.”
“Before our session with you, I only had a vague idea of what it was that was holding me back. Even though I had done a lot of inner healing work, I thought that my continued struggles were connected to my need to do more reflection and healing. But your skillful questions on the call essentially helped me take inventory of the situation in a different way, and see that the constant seeking of external answers was actually getting in the way of my own intuition and knowing.
I feel like we also walked away with a lot of clarity insofar as what was causing communication to break down in our day-to-day workflow, and what we needed to do to get more organized. By having you hold space and reflect back to us what was happening in our business, I started to see that the problems were not these huge, vague, insurmountable things, but actually very simple things that could be remedied by shifting our focus.
It feels so good to feel confidence in what we bring, and to return to our own sense of knowing. It means that we can make strides from this rooted place that has nothing to do with external “shoulds” and everything to do with what we uniquely need to thrive in our day to day. Thank you for helping us ground in that clarity when we needed it most. “

“Before I started working with Audrey I felt like I was stuck and going in circles about decisions. She gave me the space to voice the many things swirling in my head and guided me to identify what was the most important decision I needed to be making. She also coached me to identify the 1-2 goals I wanted to set that would make me feel like I was achieving my big picture vision. For example, I am working part-time so I can spend time raising my son. Sometimes with all of the responsibilities, I forget the small moments that I really appreciate most about being with him.
Now, I keep a gratitude journal where each night I track what I am most thankful for related to my big picture goals like: Spending time Raising my Son, Feeding my Family Healthy Nourishing Food and Establishing a Strong Marriage. I remind myself every day of the small things that I achieve towards my goals and I’m celebrating my efforts. I am starting to feel more successful as a mom/wife and entrepreneur.”

“I’m definitely applying the idea of small, doable actions each day to my life and, for me, it helps me get things done as well as reduce stress. Which I have a surplus of at the moment so everything I can do to keep calm helps!
One day, one hour, sometimes just a few minutes at a time, feels like the best way to cope these days. I’m grateful for any tools that help me with that :)”
“I’ve been trying to find the right words to thank you. Your (very kind) invitation to join the Be You session could not have come at a more perfect time… I truly believe I have been manifesting something just like that for months now, or at least trying to. Setting intentions and manifesting is always there in the back of my head but I always feel unsure of myself when it comes down to it.
I am going through a pretty big transition in my life right now and have been feeling major shifts in my mindset for months now. These shifts allowed me to make changes that set off some really positive chain of events and a deep inner connection with myself that I hadn’t felt in over 10 years.
The hour long experience felt like a guide (that I desperately needed) to understand this deeper connection I have been feeling and more importantly what to do with it.
I am awful with my words so I hope I’m making sense. I just want to thank you so deeply for holding that space and just being there to align with me at the most perfect time.”
“I’m doing much better! I’ve been “noticing” and taking action. (Thank you for the gift, BTW – it actually REALLY helps!!!)
I’ve closed down my private practice, am moving my school into a shared location to lighten the overhead stresses, and am building my online world bit by bit. I feel so much relief. I’m going to the gym on Friday to get my membership back and start yoga classes again. First time since I shattered my ankle 2.5 yrs ago!!!!
I feel like I can breathe a little better.”
“After horrible workpace drama, none of my managers have spoken to me except through e-mail. Normally, I would have gone down a rabbit hole and made up stories about why they hadn’t. Because usually if I’m here (since I travel quite a bit) they are coming to me pretty regularly with stuff. Really negative, self-loathing stories. Instead? I’m all good, and anytime one of those thoughts comes up, I do some deep breathing or meditating.
The fact that I was even able to 1) recognize those thoughts were happening, 2) they were bad and not true, and 3) redirect them? FUCKING HUGE for me.
My path to success has never been stopping thoughts from happening in the first place but learning to redirect them and searching for other healthier ways to expel them. Today’s success gives me such a feeling of HOPE inside that my eyes might be leaking a little.”
“Thank you so much for this session! I immediately set a leap boundary (much bigger than a shuffle boundary!) directly after our talk, before I could talk myself out of it. The person I set it with has yet to talk to me…and that’s okay. I feel much better having stood in my authenticity rather than resentment.
I can feel my boundary muscle getting stronger all the time. :)”
“I came to Audrey with fears about talking money in the sales process for my business. She helped me figure out how to let the value of my service speak for itself. My approach to sales dramatically shifted. I would recommend Audrey to anyone who is working through any kind of personal or professional block. She’s awesome. ”
James Lopata, Inner Innovation Engineer, InnerOvation.com
“Audrey is a caring and compassionate person. She has a genuine passion for helping others. While she was coaching me, I obtained a better understanding of my transition plan away from Corporate America into my own coaching practice.”
“Before meeting Audrey, I had a Soul calling that went unanswered for far too long. Lack of confidence, limiting beliefs and an inner-critic who continuously told me I wasn’t smart enough prevented me from moving forward with my desire to express my interpretation of what I believe through writing my own blog posts. With Audrey’s encouragement and support, I was able to work past my blocks which enabled me to step back into my confidence and belief in myself. I thank her for empowering me to shine my Light for all to see.”
“Audrey is an amazing coach. She is the ideal blend between someone who holds space for you and also someone who helps you see things in a new way and helps you move into action, in a no-nonsense kind of way. I felt at ease working with Audrey and always looked forward to our sessions. I would highly recommend working with Audrey if you feel stuck or overwhelmed.”
“I was a bit anxious and overwhelmed facing next stage of my career. Audrey provided super practical suggestions that I wouldn’t have come up with on my own — changing my body to reset my mind. Audrey puts mindfulness into real, in the moment practice, so I can move forward. I came away with new tools to help move past anxiety/fear, and a framework for helping to recognize when it’s fear talking louder than my rational brain. Noticing is 90% of the battle, and Audrey’s techniques are designed to make an immediate difference if you come at it with an open mind.” – Biglaw Coaching Client
“I was feeling exhausted-there are many great things on my plate that I want to do, but I was pretty tired (both personally and professionally). Audrey was great at helping me think through things that could work for me, while also helping me be a little less hard on myself and the choices I make which gives me the mental and emotional space to make smaller changes that will hopefully lead to bigger results. I think awareness has been one of the most important outcomes for me. I still fall into some of the same traps, but I am becoming more aware of where those traps are and the times I am falling into them.” – Biglaw Coaching Client
