“Working with Stefanie was like having a spiritual trainer for my life. Through her powerful questioning and empathic listening I was able to discover revealing answers that led me forward in profound ways. I value her insight, her feedback, and look forward to more.”
- Mario Lopez, host, actor
“Stefanie is a blessing! Her nurturing style, probing questions, insightful comments, and sense of humor all come together and form a fabulous being. I cannot say enough about her and how she has helped me find my bliss. The clarity, confidence, and stillness that has re-emerged from me during our coaching relationship has been and continues to be transformative. I am forever grateful! I use the tools she gave me – ideal scenes, reframing my thoughts and feelings in the positive, asking for what I want – on a daily basis and it has been remarkable to see just what the Universe provides for me when I am ready. Life coaching with Stefanie is a marvelous experience that will re-awaken your soul and send you soaring! My shine is on and forever will be.”
- Chavonna, Educator
“Working with Stefanie has been eye-opening and illuminating. She is extraordinarily talented at listening, distilling your challenges down to their essence, and equipping you with tools and habits to reach your potential. After 4 months, I feel as though I am interacting with colleagues and others on a much more purposeful and self-aware level. She gets you to see your own qualities in a new light. It really is a process of unlocking the things that already exist within you and putting them in the service of your goals and intentions. She doesn’t avoid, or let you avoid, the hard questions about what’s holding you back. You’ll end up really scrutinizing the things that matter to you, talking about values and core beliefs. And then connecting those things to the action and essence you’re trying to get to in your life. It is a transformative experience. Make sure to spend time on the “requests” and other exercises in between sessions — when I did, I was astonished at the things I wrote and thought. She has a way of framing an exercise in just the right way — she makes it seem so intuitive & seamless! — that if you really execute it, the words just fly out, and when you read it over, you find yourself saying, “Did I write that? What just happened?” You find that when you let Stefanie’s coaching in, you are really connecting all the dots within yourself that make you more productive, successful, or whatever outcome you’re striving for. She gets you thinking about your life’s trajectory, and even time and change itself, in new and revelatory ways. Stefanie’s style is impeccable — supportive, respectful, enthusiastic. The connections she makes, the insights she brings are arresting. You will gain insights into yourself that, if you let them, will be life changing.”

“In all honesty, my 9 months of coaching with Stefanie changed my life. My career, my marriage, my parenting and my relationships with my friends and family were all positively effected. I didn’t even know what life coaching was, but Stefanie has made me into a huge fan and believer. She’s the greatest!”
- Julie, Executive Producer for TV
“My life had not been moving forward the way I wanted it to and I was tired of hearing myself come up with the same old excuses. I knew my main obstacles were my own creation, but I also knew I needed someone to shake things up for me; someone who could help me re-assess and re-commit to my short and long-term goals; someone who could help me approach success in a new way. That’s when I met Stef. After our first meeting I knew she was the right person to help me. In our first session, Stefanie cut to heart of everything – shining an incredibly powerful and positive light of inquiry, insight, and action into all aspects of my life. Almost immediately I was approaching things differently, and in the most energizing and self-believing way. Already I’ve achieved profound change. Our continued work together brings me closer to what matters most both inside and outside myself.”
- Jennifer, Director
“My first session with Stefanie was more helpful to me than any therapy session I’ve ever had. We quickly identified one of the core issues standing in the way of my success and worked to resolve it. She also gave me tools I could use on my own, ways to help me help myself. Stefanie is caring, trustworthy, to the point, super smart about her work, and endlessly positive. I, on the other hand, am a cynic— or was, anyway, until our first session concluded and I felt energized, full of hope, and about 25 pounds lighter.”
- Jackie, writer
“I admit I was a bit of a skeptic of life coaching at first, until I started working with Stef, who drew me out and made me look at what exactly was holding me back, creatively and personally. And for the first time, I was able to transform my long-held self-made limits and really move forward. Astounding! I emerge from every session with her filled with amazement… and profound gratitude.”
- Julie, writer
“Working with Stefanie has been great for me! After years of on and off therapy, I feel I have found an approach that actually changes my life in a way that makes sense and works for me. I have been receiving coaching from Stefanie for a short period of time, and already I have new tools that I can apply in my life on a regular basis. I have observed changes in my behavior that used to keep me stuck in the past; now I’m much more present. Coaching has helped me to change the way I think about me, my life, and what’s best for me. Stefanie’s ability to synthesize, make analogies, and offer new ways of seeing is succinct and relatable. Her caring nature comes across through her enthusiasm and support. With her coaching, I am now able to make the changes I’ve always wanted to make in my life, and begin manifesting the dreams I’ve always dreamt.”
- Julia, Export Director, Italian Winery
“I have always viewed myself as an inspired, self-motivated and driven individual who successfully moved up the corporate ladder. However, I was often disappointed by the outcome of each career transition which lacked a sense of value I craved. This is where Stefanie stepped in and played an instrumental role in my refocusing my lens. I had the opportunity to rediscover and claim who I really am, what drives me and how to apply my talents in life.
Our work together provided me with tools, supportive guidance and discipline to identify my core values, which had often been ignored in my quest for that “next big job.” I became fully aware of my patterns and attempts to fit into environments that didn’t reflect who I am, which led to frustration. Ultimately, Stefanie helped me understand the “value” I craved was acknowledging my need to live authentically and focus on connections, both personally and professionally, that embrace my core strengths and values. It’s still a work in progress, but I am getting far more comfortable with thinking bigger for myself.”
- Michelle, Marketing Consultant and Children’s Author In the Making
“In a field that frequently substitutes formula for real skill, Stefanie’s work is different. With clarity and insight she managed multiple levels of comfort and boundaries and got the best from all participants. She exuded a personable and authentic attitude that made it easy to share.

“Working with Stefanie was a completely transformative experience for me. It helped me to be more conscious in my life and taught me the value and importance of intention. We attract what we want. We might as well be specific and dream big. My life did a 180 after I participated in Stefanie’s workshop. It really freed me up to seeing the magic all around us.”
- Kimberlee, former breaking news producer turned published author
“Highly creative, yet infinitely practical, working with Stefanie will help you focus your energy to realize your most profound aspirations.”

- Suzan, author
“Scary (in a good way), unlimiting, life-changing, boundary-defying… Stefanie has a way of gently getting to the heart of the matter and promoting a positive thought process in order to create the life you seek. Stefanie is a very giving coach who instills trust immediately. I would recommend working with her to anyone who is feeling stuck and/or needs to clear a path in his/her life.”

From Funk to Functional ™
“I attended the workshop From Funk To Functional: 4 Steps To Get Back On Track and it was fantastic! Stefanie is a rare jewel. She is able to masterfully use humor to address very deep personal issues. The four steps she’s created – resist, allow, release, what now – are a brilliant way to connect the everyday person to the present moment and allow them to move through the world empowered and inspired to be their greatest self.”
- Will, Songwriter/Singer and Juilliard Trained Actor
“After taking the workshop From Funk To Functional, I walked away with a handy filled in worksheet, an accountability partner, and had lots of laughs! I usually don’t speak up in a large group setting, but Stefanie made it a very comfortable setting for me to come out of my stuck funk and participate. I left that night very motivated!”
- David, photographer
“From the moment I met Stefanie and heard her life’s story, I knew that I wanted to work with her. I’ve been immersed in this type of personal work for over a decade, but what sets Stefanie apart for me, is that she has manifested her life’s vision on a very high level in every field she’s stepped into. Many of the life coaches I’ve worked with are inspiring, but struggle to translate their own dreams into reality. Stefanie teaches the tools and steps that have worked for her, and in just the short time I’ve been meeting with her I’ve experienced tremendous leaps forward: from dreaming to doing.
After taking a Seminar with Stefanie, I can see why she’s so successful. She doesn’t spend a lot of time talking about the problems or diving into “the stories”. She gives each person ample time to express themselves but very quickly guides them towards the steps and solutions she’s offering, rather than dwelling on the blocks and disappointments. She approaches difficulties with acalm practicality that comes from having overcome many obstacles in her own life and endows her participants with a knowledge that dreams do come true – it’s just a matter of addressing the resistances in a concrete way and then moving forward.
At the beginning of the “From Funk to Functional” Workshop, I thought I was living solidly on the “Functional” end of the spectrum. However, while working through Stefanie’s four easy steps, and partnering with another participant, I became conscious of the fact that I’ve been having difficulty sleeping for months and often awake in the middle of the night from horrific nightmares. Although, during my waking hours, I was experiencing the flow of non-resistance, the places in my life where I am paralyzed were showing up in my dreams. I hadn’t been conscious to that key piece of information until sitting in the Seminar.
By the end of 2 hours with Stefanie, I had a very clear picture of not only what I was afraid of, but of how to address it, and what to do next.”
