“Before I first started working with Rikki, I was skeptical (at best) that she would be able to do much to help me. In the last 10 years I have seen 7 different therapists and specialists from marriage counselors to psychologists, psychiatrists, ADHD specialists and life coaches. While I do feel they helped me understand myself better, I still felt lost, hopeless and like I was missing something. My husband and I have been teetering on the edge of divorce for about 2 years, and although we never pulled the trigger, I wouldn’t say things were improving. This was despite weekly and sometimes biweekly couples therapy, an IMAGO retreat, intense one-on-one therapy and countless self help books and articles we referenced regularly. I lived every day for almost a decade feeling like I was in the wrong life. I worked in medical device sales and despite making a lot of money, I hated it every day. I wasn’t working as efficiently as I could have been and was in danger of losing my job, so I blamed my ADHD and unhappy home life for this. I blamed the stress of my job for the fact that my marriage was failing and also used it to blame myself for not being the Mother that I wanted to be. I blamed my ADHD for my marriage failing as well, and this all added up to a giant heap of guilt I threw on myself, every day. This tangled mess just seemed like a little too much for a life coach to help me sort through.
“Rikki is an incredible life coach. From her knowledge to her demeanor, she is perfectly suited to counsel and guide. Rikki has a wonderful way of honing in on the root of the setbacks that leave us feeling weak, sad, and frustrated. She empowers and enlightens with her common sense approach. One can immediately use the tools described in her coaching and apply them to every day situations and events. I am thoroughly impressed by her caring, yet strong nature. She is able to detach herself from the subject at hand yet convey empathy and ultimate understanding. I was able to come to conclusions about my actions and feelings (and ways to evolve into a more conscious being) because she asked the right questions and led me down the right path of self-discovery. Her method is very much one of accountability. To have control over one’s life (even when you sometimes feel it is all out of your control) is a priceless skill that must be practiced, and I feel I’ve sharpened that ability in my time with Rikki. There was not one area of my life that she could not help me decipher and work to mend. I feel confident moving forward and feel stronger than I ever have before. I would recommend Rikki to anyone with any level of need. She has a gift and truly makes the world a better place.”
