Karen helped me to be active and responsible, to commit to myself and my aspirations. It was a stress-free, rewarding experience to work with her, and I always felt energized and motivated to move forward after our coaching sessions.

"We all know that it’s an integral part of the human experience to have goals, dreams and aspirations, and that sometimes there are impediments that can hamper our ability to strive for those goals. In my case, I had reached a plateau professionally and was yearning to have more meaning and purpose in my career. I had dreams and aspirations, but somehow they seemed too unattainable amidst my busy life and daily obligations. Even though I had given considerable thought to changing course professionally, I had not actually taken any tangible steps forward in quite some time. And so I enlisted Karen’s help.

I’m so glad I did, because Karen’s coaching has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me. Because she is naturally analytical and insightful, she helped me clarify and better define my professional goals, and she has helped me recognize and overcome the impediments that were preventing me from moving forward. Now I have taken concrete action towards attaining my goals and aspirations. It’s a great feeling!

And Karen’s positive, encouraging and supportive coaching style had made the coaching experience all the more enriching.I always leave the coaching session challenged, focused and energized, and it is with all sincerity that I can say she’s a wonderful coach. Thanks, Karen!"

"Karen Shapiro is the good listener I've been longing for - the one who not only hears the questions and concerns that burden me, but also helps me hear them, perhaps from a new perspective, so that I can then make constructive choices about ways in which to address those very issues. Her light touch in each coaching session has behind it the welcome weight of intellect, compassion, and curiosity and excitement about all possibilities. Each of us encounters unique (and very real) obstacles along our professional and personal paths. She has helped me chart my own course through a time of major transitions."
