I had the good fortune of working with Gretchen for over a year and during the course of that time, I truly saw the impact she was able to have on my organization, and more specifically, with those that she coached. Gretchen is so sharply in tune with those that she is coaching. What struck me, as an HR professional, was the relationships she built with each individual. It was palpable how much she cared and was invested in their success. Helping them overcome roadblocks at their desk whether it was time management or messaging to clients and candidates. Gretchen is able to connect and relate on a level that many are not, because she has been in their shoes, at their desks, doing it herself. She gets it. She gets it from their perspective and from the customer’s perspective and she is able to seamlessly weave it all together to truly impact and take one’s success to the next level. All of this became even more evident when at a quarterly meeting 75% of our top performers were folks that Gretchen had coached and worked with over the course of the past year. Seventy five percent! Each had seriously increased their meeting metrics and in turn improved their confidence and their total revenues. Gretchen’s work with my employees was so much more than a traditional “perk”. She truly impacted our retention rates, something all sales organizations struggle with, and increased both revenues and employee engagement. In almost all of my individual meetings with staff about what set our company apart, it was Gretchen, and the work she did with them to improve their metrics and day to day approach to their desk that was cited again and again. Gretchen also coached our operations team as well, helping to train and develop them as they became first time managers. Assisting them as they worked through difficult conversations, improved accountability and built confidence. Gretchen, was a true partner to me and to the rest of our Management Team. I viewed her as a trustworthy and impeccable extension of the HR office, helping to mitigate problems and leverage her relationships to increase communication and efficiency among the teams. She was an asset to not only our bottom line but to those who drive our business. And perhaps, most importantly, Gretchen is herself, an extraordinary human being with a voracious appetite to help those around her and to never stop learning and improving herself. Her commitment to the team and to those who work with her is exceptionally special and she would go far to positively impact any organization lucky enough to work with her. SC - Boston, MA
I have been working with Gretchen since the summer of 2016, when I was experiencing a localized recurrence of breast cancer. With Gretchen’s calming guidance and patient instruction, I began learning the EFT technique and using her custom audios. These tools helped tremendously to ease the emotional burden that came with my recurrence and subsequent cancer treatments and surgeries. Gretchen provided wonderful affirmations and supported me as I focused my energy on healing. She was instrumental in helping me heal my mind, body and soul, and I am so grateful that she shared her coaching and tapping gifts with me. I am happy, healthy and thriving and I continue to make the time to care for myself both spiritually, emotionally and physically.
After my treatments ended and my health returned, I continued to work with Gretchen because I felt lost in a transitional space but I knew that I wanted to give back to the breast cancer community. I felt I needed to find a way to incorporate my experience as a two-time breast cancer survivor with my corporate skills in communications, but I wasn’t sure how or if I could make it happen. Gretchen encouraged me to write out what I wanted to accomplish and create for myself in a specific and detailed plan. She then helped me identify and work through any thoughts, feelings and obstacles that could hinder my success. Now, I am proud to say that I am a Breast Cancer Patient Advocate working with the medical community and several non-profit organizations to make sure that breast cancer patients have the support and resources they need to heal both during and after treatment. In addition, I recently co-founded the Young Women’s Breast Cancer Support Group of the North Shore, which provides peer-to-peer support for younger women at any stage of their breast cancer experience.
Gretchen is a true professional who is kind, empathetic and supportive. She has the tools and expertise to help anyone achieve their goals. She understands the needs and challenges of every client and uses humor, compassion and her own life experiences to guide, encourage and inspire her clients to be true to themselves and achieve their goals. I highly recommend Gretchen and her services and I am so thankful to Gretchen for guiding and supporting me through these two major life stages. I look forward to our continued work together and I am excited for my next successful endeavor! LN - Swampscott, MA
I first started working with Gretchen over 11 years ago. When she first mentioned EFT, I was curious to see if it would be something that could help me manage the stresses in my life. It definitely has. I leave every session with Gretchen feeling more empowered to take on what life throws at me. As a busy mom too many and business owner, that can be a lot at times. Working with Gretchen and using EFT has helped me to get behind what is really making me anxious and deal with each issue. It has been wonderful to put behind me worries and doubts making room for a happier, healthier me. I look forward to each session knowing I will leave a better person. Gretchen is a kind, compassionate person, and working with her is a joy. LL - Beverly, MA
I have been working with Gretchen for over two years and it has been an absolute joy. Every time I leave our sessions, I feel like I just got a breath of fresh air, a new perspective, and a renewed sense of confidence in myself to tack whatever is in front of me. From discussing action-oriented strategies on how to create more success at work to talking about how my personal goals (weight loss, saving money, etc.) are all interconnected, it has made a big impact on my life. Not only do we talk about what is going on in the current moment, I also practice tapping on specific struggles with Gretchen to release stress, anxiety and fears in my body. This has set me up for more success in my life overall.
Even outside of work hours, Gretchen makes herself available by phone call and text, which is way beyond expectations. With her help, I am en route to creating the success that I want for myself even if I have trouble believing it is possible. She helps me break down, dissect, and dismantle the fears and negative thoughts that live in my body, so I can get out of my own way to create life-changing success. I would recommend working with Gretchen to anyone who is open to taking a look at themselves to become a better human being, co-worker, partner, and friend. AJ - Boston, MA
I worked closely with Gretchen while in a sales position at a staffing agency. Gretchen, coupled with the EFT Tapping, offered incredible support and transparency throughout the time we worked together. Initially, we began working together as a way to maintain and achieve various sales and professional goals of mine, but my work with Gretchen turned out to be so much more. She (and EFT) helped me to let go of a lot of the negative thinking patterns that were actually holding me back from pursuing a more (personally) rewarding career path. I would recommend Gretchen to anyone who is motivated to understand themselves more deeply, shift career trajectories, or make any sort of life-change. HD - Boston, MA
I've been working with Gretchen for over 10 years. When she introduced tapping into the mix, it changed my life. My anxiety is virtually non-existent, and when it does come up, I can easily clear it (even laugh at it). I love my life, I love myself, and know I have a way to overcome anything that comes at me (divorce...career change...food...family...dating...life...). The one thing that is most important for me to share, having sought healing for a long time, is that Gretchen is not only as gifted as they come, SHE does the work first. There is nothing she practices with a client that she hasn't practiced herself. And she practices what she preaches every day, tirelessly, to improve herself, her life, and the lives of all those who choose to work with her. And in doing so, she is compassionate, empathetic, and is truly an amazing conduit for healing. JA - Beverly, MA
In working with Gretchen, I have had great success with my approach to overall decision making. Calm and clarity now drive my decisions as I make them with conviction and confidence and not with great concern about the "what ifs", the self doubting voice that used to creep in often. Gretchen has also worked with me through tapping toward the realization that most of what might affect my decision making or my reactions is happening around me, not to me. Realizing that I can create this boundary has allowed me to approach any challenge with practical and proactive thinking rather than irrational and reactive thinking. Overall, I have been able to work towards a more fulfilling career just by making the next good decision, one after the other without worrying too much about how each small movement might change my overall course. It allows me to move ahead in a way that feels connected to my thinking daily rather than striving for an overwhelming or cumbersome outcome. I used to navigate from a place of "what if" instead of thinking through what feels right, what works for me at that place in time. Tapping works as an action plan toward clarity in my career, my marriage, my family of origin, my parenting and my confidence as it relates. The guidance Gretchen provides in the work allows for a shift in energy that has provided a clear path for me in all aspects of my life with the destination being less a concern. That mindfulness has provided a tremendous amount of peace for me as I have moved through the work in small increments week by week.
I have worked with Gretchen for nearly 19 months. I would strongly recommend anyone willing to try something different to consider Gretchen. She works "real time" on issues, providing a strategy to reach goals vs. talking through problems. The strategy, for anyone looking to move quickly towards solutions while dealing with their own "blindspots" is a total game changer. MD - Wenham, MA
