"Carolyn Semedo-Strauss is a Tremendously Talented Life Coach. I always look forward to my sessions with Carolyn. With her open and compassionate coaching style I feel I have a collaborator in planning my own life journey. By helping me define my values and organize my goals, Carolyn has given me a sense that I create the life that I want to live. Being accountable for homework assignments has challenged me to reach beyond what I think my limits are, but not so far to feel impossible. I feel I have accomplished a something worthwhile when I report the outcomes of these assignments to Carolyn. My favorite gift that Carolyn has given me is a method to overcome the mental and emotional obstacles I have built over the years. I feel tremendous gratitude for having Carolyn in my life."

"WOW! That's the word I use to describe my first experience of coaching with Carolyn.
I first approached Carolyn about coaching because I was looking for an accountability partner with my business. I am a stay-at-home mom that has a very busy schedule as well as a home business. Working from home has had it's challenges and I felt exploring a Life and Career Coach might help me stay focused and on track with my goals. I had no idea that coaching would give me so much more than just focus with my business!
In just the short half hour sample session, she helped me see so much and realize that my career AND life dreams are worthwhile and CAN become reality. She took me on a journey to my “future place” and my vision was so very clear. I drove home feeling incredibly abundant and knew that without a doubt I wanted Carolyn to be my coach!
Our relationship is a partnership. She respects my feelings, doesn’t judge me, and genuinely cares about me. She asks all the right questions to get me to explore my feelings and values. In a few short weeks of beginning my coaching sessions, I was experiencing a lot of personal growth……specifically, making time for me and allowing myself to truly see the world as my oyster and feel good about that. She asks where I need more accountability and challenges me to really stretch, grow, and sometimes “get dirty.” My coaching experience with Carolyn has made my life full of positive energy!
Finally, I know Carolyn wants to see me living out my dreams….and I know with Carolyn as my coach, I WILL!

"One doesn't often experience unconditional regard and listening. But this is the gift that Carolyn brings. She is able to pick a thread out of a jumble of thoughts and present it to you as a gift for deeper reflection. I highly recommend her to you, wherever you are in your journey as a human being trying to gather a life, to yourself, that is worth living."
