In my heart I had been feeling like there has to be more...I was reading all the self help books, but I still didn't know how to uncover what it was that I felt was missing from my life. Then I met Trudy. Trudy's compassion enabled me to take an honest look at myself, and her insight helped me acknowledge that if I wanted more from life, I would have to ask more of myself and take a look inside…of me. The honesty, encouragement, and reality that Trudy brought to each of our sessions enabled me to embrace all that I am, and liberated me from past beliefs that continued to keep me from moving forward.

“Fierce has had a tremendous impact on my conversations; particularly two difficult conversations with leaders about their performance.

I’ve become a much more authentic and engaging leader and much more caring and thoughtful as an individual.”
