I came to Denise and New Roots because I started a new brick-and-mortar business and needed some coaching. Denise really challenged me with every aspect of the business—bookkeeping, advertising, recruiting, expansion plans and more.

She pushed me to make my metrics stronger and more specific and also gave me resources to help me with that process. Denise also helped me create more precise business goals, which gave me a better understanding of how to achieve those goals and how long it would take.

By the time I had my last session, I had already achieved some of my business goals, which Denise helped hold me accountable for. I am a stronger businesswoman after my coaching sessions because my business is now rooted in stronger metrics, specific goals and strong guiding principles.

I am screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-10-24-32-pmso blessed to have crossed paths with Denise. She is the first career coach I’ve had. Her compassion for my situation was enlightening and helped me turn what had become toxic shame into empathic interest about myself and my journey. The coaching approach and tools she implemented with me were very impressive and gave me the opportunity to discover my own insight into questions that had haunted me for half the year. I do not know what I could say except that if you have never worked with a career coach, you are really missing out on having another pair of lenses look at your linear experiences and if you want someone who is dependable, confidential, educated, well versed in business tools then choose Denise to be that coach. I promise you will not regret this decision to embrace more of what life may have always laid right before you.

Denise has been the most amazing life coach. Her insight, wisdom, patience and professionalism is of the highest standard. Through her coaching, I was able to navigate through one of the most difficult times of my life. From the start, Denise guided me to consider my life holistically and then focus on particular areas of improvement. She encouraged and helped me to structure my goals in ways that I’d never previously considered, which made them more manageable and created a clear road to accomplishment. Denise’s warmth and attentiveness helped me think through potential solutions to save a troubled marriage, set post-graduate plans, improve my money management, and implement better self-care strategies. Our sessions enabled me to re-evaluate, restructure, and realign my life. I grew new roots and experienced tremendous growth. I will be forever grateful.
