Work with Geri
“Geri brings an effervescent energy and positivity that is infectious. With her, there is no problem that doesn't have a solution and her calming approach put me at ease. I would highly recommend her as a life coach, and friend.”
“I love working with Geri. She is so approachable and such a good listener. She is straightforward, but also so kind, and very accessible in between coaching sessions if I wanted to talk through something. I always knew who I was inside, but I let myself be controlled for so long that I thought it was normal. Geri helped me to understand how my belief system developed out of my early childhood and how that thinking showed up in my life today. I’ve now been able to make changes in my life and feel lighter am definitely more productive”
“I have struggled with my weight and self-image for over 10 years now. I knew I didn't want another diet plan. I needed to find a way to connect with my food and with myself that would last me a life time. I knew I had to make a life change, I just didn't know how. Geri's program This Is It! was just the thing. In just a couple of days I realized that so much of my hunger is mind-made. For the first time in over a decade I am taking control of my life, my happiness, and my body. Geri is an amazingly compassionate and gentle coach. I highly recommend her guidance and coaching to help you find your happiness.”
“I highly recommend Geri as a life coach. She is easy to build a rapport with, insightful, perceptive, patient and kind. I was struggling with putting my self first, especially with self-care. In our sessions I realized that I really did take care of myself, but what I wanted was to change my commitment to diet and exercise. Geri helped me look at my issues with new and different eyes. She helped me realize that my thinking was my problem! Changing the way I looked at things changed my attitude. I’m on a food plan and now exercising.”
“Geri is a lovely, kind, intelligent person with a heart of gold. I was nervous about truly opening up to anyone, I'm very private. I was unhappy about a recent weight gain also didn't want to do anything about it. Geri helped me work through my thoughts and feelings about weight loss. I made the decision to commit to weight loss, and have lost weight.”
“I was going through a hard time and feeling like a victim. Geri showed me I could choose to change my thinking and feeling about the situation I was in, and develop a clearer picture of the action steps to take. I've taken those steps, and feel in charge and stronger. I have a plan. Geri listens. She's nice to talk to.”
“I was caught up in a busy life and thinking a lot about keeping up appearances. Geri helped me see the bigger picture in my life. Now, I relax with my kids rather than always thinking about what tasks need to be done. She is confident, smart, professional and funny. But she’s real –and an easy coach to relate to.”
“Geri was so easy to talk to on the phone and in just a few sessions got me to see a lot about myself. We talked about the body image issue I knew I had but then, out of nowhere, came this other body image issue I was unaware of. I then realized why these two issues were conflicting, fighting each other. My mind was blown! I’m still learning and benefitting from our sessions.”
“Geri’s a great coach for anyone who is stuck like I was. I liked the fact that Geri could relate to the issues I have regarding weight and body image. She was really good at recognizing my hang ups. She’s got great insight and is very supportive and encouraging. I’ve become more mindful about my eating. I lost weight, yes, but even better was getting past the emotional baggage.”
“Geri helped me look at a lot of my life through a new lens – I have been seeing everything from friendships to my career with a different perspective. Since we’ve been coaching I stepped up at work, and that made me feeling empowered. I’m feeling good about my current situation and feeling more free to let things go. She’s been the encouragement I need for what I already know and have been trying to practice.”
“Geri has the unique ability to genuinely listen to what I say, and then hold up a mirror so that I can hear what I actually said and decide if that is what I really wanted to project to the world. She helps me break life down into small pieces, and reminds me that I don't have to tackle all the pieces in one day. She suggests a plan and then follows up with me. The highlight of my week is my coaching call with Geri!”
“I started working with Geri to figure out why I was stuck and not making the progress I had planned in my weight and health. She helped me understand how much I was already doing correctly and to stop putting myself under so much pressure. I've adopted her 'the check is in the mail' approach and it's helped me make very good progress. I see the value of working with a coach to help clients see across the horizon to a brighter future.”
This is it! Weight Loss Coaching Mini-Session
You are heartsick of dieting, and yet heartsick of being overweight. You are smart, driven and successful in so many ways and yet addressing this one issue in your life feels beyond you. You have dreams, desires, and goals, but you’ve been hiding your light under your weight, believing it’s stopping you from being your best self.
Good news. You don’t have to feel this way anymore. Promise.
You’re in the right place.
I work privately 1:1 or in small groups of 5-6 (next group info here) — to see if we’re a good fit, the best thing to do is set up time for us to talk in a free coaching session.
During this complimentary 30-minute coaching session we will get on the phone (or video if you prefer) and talk about your weight loss or body image issues. I’ll also share with you the options available to you if you choose to keep working with me and advise you about whether or not I can help you reach your goals. You will:
- Understand the reason you feel the way you do.
- Receive at least one tip or tool you can try right away to feel better
- Learn about the process I take clients through to help them have the life they want.
