Prior to becoming a certified life change coach, I had to overcome many obstacles in my life. These obstacles brought me from Chicago, IL, to Seattle, WA for new beginnings. My life experiences brought me to a fork in my path, having to make a change. In the process, it opened up a new path in life allowing me the privilege and opportunity to help others and connect to those struggling in life.

Bernard was dedicated, committed and insightful. His unique Chicago self helped me view my life challenges in a very different way. He helped me gain confidence and pursue an entirely different lifestyle. He was so flexible, meeting me at different locations, phone and online meetings. Without his encouragement and guidance, I’d still be living couch to couch with no direction or meaning in my life. Thank you for coming into my life! - N.B”
