Client Testimonials

Here are some of the things that my clients have said about my services:

"Marije's coaching helped me create a successful business in a much shorter time than I would have been able to on my own, with fewer mistakes and wrong directions. She helped me both personally and professionally think clearly about my goals and values and how they affect all aspects of my life!"

~ Sharon, Administrative Assistant, Sacramento, CA

"Marije Miller is a skilled personal coach. One of the most important qualities for a coach--and one which she possesses in abundance--is the ability to cut into the heart of an issue and to focus on it without projecting her own judgment on her clients' issues and lives. Marije coached me through two months when my life was in transition in nearly every aspect. My response to the upheaval I was feeling at the time was to just avoid the issues, and Marije helped me to re-focus on what I held important, and then with getting what I needed to. I appreciate Marije for supporting me in being accountable for my goals and plans; for her encouragement throughout this time and beyond; and for her clarity when my thinking was clouded."

~ Nikki, former Engineer, currently Real Estate Agent, Auburn, CA

"I liked having the freedom to discuss what was on my mind. I could openly discuss any problem that I was having and it would be well received. I feel that I benefited from coaching quite well. I got new focus, and coaching helped to locate my internal motivation. Coaching helped to direct me to where I really wanted to be. I was not looking hard enough at the road that I wanted to travel, but coaching helped me to get back on track and take the steps towards reaching my goals. Coaching has boosted my self- esteem quite a bit. It was a major help to work on things that I have accomplished and goals that I have reached. It is something that I never paid attention to, or was embarrassed to for fear that I was being too vain. But I learned that it is not being vain, it just showed me what I am able to do, and what more I am capable to accomplish. I like knowing I have a fan out there, supporting me in my decisions! Thank you times 1,001!"

~ Summer, went back for her Master’s Degree, Agoura Hills, CA

"Marije's firm and caring approach helped get focused on my top priorities and on what I want to accomplish. She was able to help me determine what obstacles stood in way, how to get around them, and achieve my goals and objectives."

~ Michael, Program Manager, Oakland, CA

"I really enjoyed the talks I had with Marije, I feel great. I am permanently changing my should to could!!!!!! I was able to talk and talk and then Marije would ask this awesome question and I would have a very important insight by the end of the session. Marije showed me I was able to make a life change that is perfect for me and my values."

~ Connie, K-Teacher in Honduras, Central America

"Marije has a gift of guiding, coaching and motivating from her heart. In a very short time I was tackling and accomplishing things that I had been merely talking and thinking about doing for months. Amazing! I would recommend Marije to anyone who wants to get unstuck in their life or wants to improve their quality of life and feel so much better about themselves. She truly can help you live Your Greatest Life. As a coach, she can be your guardian angel."

~ Greg, Coach, Auburn, CA

"Marije came into my life at a time when I needed her desperately, and didn’t even realize it. She had the insight to see my dilemma before I did, and she brilliantly pulled me out of the rut I was sinking further into. I had been making life and family decisions based on all the wrong reasons. I was so busy keeping up with life’s daily demands, that I never stopped to think about what I wanted out of life, and where I had hoped I would be at this point in time. Marije got to the heart of my problems with her finely-tuned listening and paraphrasing skills, which resulted in brilliant insights about me, I had never known before. She probed deep into the core root of my long, lost dreams and desires to find out what I truly wanted in life. Her homework assignments taught me to be honest with my true, inner self. After just a few sessions with Marije, and my new positive outlook, my life began to improve. Within weeks, I was offered a new and exciting career in a beautiful community where, I know, my family and I will be happy forever. I know, now, that I’m on my true path in life. Marije is not like a psychologist or counselor that just listens to my problems. She’s that guardian angel we all secretly desire that truly has my best interests at heart, and wants me to succeed for me. She’s brilliant!!! There is no greater investment I could have made. It’s and investment in myself… and my family’s future happiness."

~ Schnee, from aspiring Nurse to Architectural Coordinator, El Dorado Hills, CA

"Marije's approach during our coaching session was very direct, yet gentle. She got quickly to the point where I needed help. Afterwards I felt good, but also very tired, because we worked through so much. Maybe that's because of my M.S., but now that I've rested I feel so much clearer. I really feel encouraged; I felt fearful and kind of in a rut, but I feel so much stronger now! I am excited to start the project we've designed together!"

~ Britt, San Jose, California

"I was looking for a way to stay focused on my goals. Also, I wanted a place to bounce ideas around. These expectations were met with every meeting. Coaching was more than I expected. Looking back I realize that each time Marije pointed out to me that I had taken a step closer to my goal, I was motivated to continue working to get even closer to it.

Marije is very good at letting you know when you accomplish something, even the smallest step. This way I was able to see them for myself and give myself credit for them. It was helpful for me each time Marije let me know when I was avoiding the work. She does this in a direct way but without judgment. When Marije repeated things I said, it let me know I was being heard and that we were on the same page. I found the experience very valuable. I continue to pull from the sessions when I need to refocus.

~ Julia, Fremont, California

Marije, I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate the time and effort expended on your behalf in our meetings. Your focus and prompt attention to the issues at hand, along with the continued support that you offer make reaching those goals a reality. It's a pleasure knowing you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!"

~ Barbara, Grass Valley, California

"Marije is an absolute gem. There is no doubt that she thoroughly enjoys her work. It shows in her total commitment to her clients and their success. There's nothing 'cookie cutter' about Marije's approach. She digs in and gets to know her clients and helps them achieve their goals on their terms, at their pace, and to how each client is wired up. Since Marije is available over the phone and connected via the Internet, there is no excuse not to hire her - no matter where you live!"
