“When I think about being coached by Liza, the first words that come to mind are investment and care. Liza invests deeply in her clients, and during our coaching sessions, I immediately felt that Liza was in my corner and cared about helping me to successfully reach my goals. She is a fantastic cheerleader and her strengths-based approach has helped re-orient me toward the positive in many situations. One of the things I value most about Liza is the way that she brings an innovative and creative spirit to her work as a coach; whether it is coming up with a new way to visually display feedback, or introducing a variety of techniques and tools to a conversation, she truly has a gift for helping clients process information in different ways.”
