"Austin is an outstanding coach – warm, insightful and upbeat. If you are looking for a coach to help you find balance in your life, you should talk with her! Austin provides supportive listening while injecting words of wisdom and guidance throughout the coaching sessions.  She was patient with me on days that I was frustrated and not so “coachable”, always encouraging self-care and listening to my intuition. I highly recommend Austin – she is a gem!"

"I knew I liked talking to Austin immediately. Her friendly and compassionate nature is evident through her words of encouragement. I benefited most from a conversation we had in regards to me feeling not good enough and insecure about being recently separated and living with my parents. I feel more settled into my temporary home and now believe it is the best choice for myself and my three boys. I've noticed a shift in my boys attitude as a result of my new peace and I now feel like we have a place to call home."

"At 36 years old, I realized that all the items on my "Life To Do List" were piling up and with each day I was running out of time to truly live the life I wanted. So, I decided I need help- I needed someone to help guide me through my own self discovery in order to stop living each day saying "If Only" but actully get to living my life. That was when I started looking for a life coach. I had heard of them and even have it on my list of things I would like to do myself but didnt know where to begin. I did what most people do- I googled! That was where I found Austin through Thumbtack. I reviewed her profile, her blog, and her website. I felt like this was someone I could be friends with. So a month ago we started working together and I have already started crossing things off my "Life To Do List" I never thought I would ever really get to. I finally have a different view on life. I start each day with practices that she has guided me through and I have stopped sitting at home on the weekends. I no longer think about living my life- I am actually living it. It's an incredible feeling. Austin supports me in self discovery and guides me to lead the life I want without fear or feelings of being lost. I am already happier and more satisifed! I cannot wait to see what my life has to offer now that Austin there to show me anything is possible."

What did you find most valuable about your coaching session? Any "ah-ha" moments? 

-Defining fears, putting limits on commitments(time frame, for instance)

What could your coach have done differently to make the coaching more valuable for you?
-I can’t even imagine anything more. It was so much what I desired to do.

-I’m really excited to have a plan of action to start off with. Coaching made me realize that I am the authority on me, and even “playing”, like with art, can have some rules. Lovely limitations. Thank you

“Austin is as bright as a sunflower. She is always realistic and I find I can talk to her about anything. I never feel judged or like she’s holding back when she gives me suggestions to think about. She’s encouraging without making it seem like it’s all sunshine’s and rainbows. I like to stay active and so some of our meetings are while on a bike ride or a walk around town together. If you’re contemplating change, need advice or just looking for someone to chat with, Austin is ideal.”

I have had so much up in the air lately, going forward in 5 different directions, and I had one of those mornings you think "Where the hell do I even go from here...where do I start..." Austin helped me step back and take the emotion and stress out of my decisions and look at them clearly with humor and precision. By the end of our phone call I had a to-do list, removed choices that weren't me at all, and felt SO much more at ease and energized to tackle the next steps. It was easy to listen to her advice because she's built her own business and knows what she's doing. I cannot wait for my next appointment!
