I started working with Vera a year ago when I realized that my life needed to change. I heard her speak at a leadership meeting, and realized that if I wanted to change my life, I would need her help to guide me. Since we’ve started working together, I have been able to set clearer boundaries with my family, I have carefully re-evaluated my relationship with volunteer and nonprofits that were wrecking my work-life balance, I have been sober(ish) for about a year and completely sober for over 7 months, I have achieved a major professional designation (coursework + exam) that has been a goal for the past 5 years, and my husband and I are expecting our first child!
Working with Vera has been especially valuable in navigating the growth that I’ve experienced in 2020. I never expected to be pregnant during a pandemic, intense grief at the loss of my grandmother, economic recession, civil unrest, murder hornets, Saharan dust, tropical storms, etc., and I couldn’t have navigated through this year without her help. I’ve been able to rely on and build healthier coping strategies with her help, and I am extremely grateful that I met her and decided to work with her a year ago!
