I retained Lindsay as my coach in 2010 while I was processing a significant re-engineering in my consulting work. She was the perfect choice! Her technique and style are grounded in real-world sensibility and respect for her clients. She helps her clients achieve their objectives without getting lost in magical or wishful thinking. And her sense of humor ushered me through more than one intense phase when I really needed to laugh more than I needed to be coddled with a “there there.” The day I met Lindsay was unmistakably a lucky one for me! I’ll never stop being grateful and appreciative.M.F.
