Success builds on

Here’s What My Clients Say


Nia is a terrific, sensitive, and astute listener and communicator. Working with her has paid dividends for my sanity and happiness every day since. Better than therapy!


Nia helps me to see my situation in ways I hadn’t considered before. Having this new perspective really changes things. I’m making better decisions that result in outcomes I feel good about. Nia’s patience, ability to listen, great questions, and genuine support are invaluable.


I hired Nia back in 2012 when she was an organizer. She helped me through so many different organizing projects at my home and office, I’ve lost track! Over the years as her business shifted into coaching, I availed myself of her coaching services, which has been a great investment. Nia’s helped me get clear on my priorities, make some key decisions, and move forward in areas where I was treading water. One of the biggest goals she helped me achieve was publishing my memoirs, a project I’m very proud of. I highly recommend Nia to anyone seeking a great coach.


Nia brings joy and enthusiasm with her and I can’t imagine having done this with anyone else.


Nia made my “dreaded tasks” not only bearable, but enjoyable! The experience of working with her has literally changed my life.


When I started coaching with Nia I had to do lists everywhere on small pieces of paper – in my purse, on my desk, and anywhere else a Post-It note would stick. In short, I was scattered and overwhelmed and not able to think (or act) with clarity. I hated that feeling and it was hurting both my business and home life. With Nia’s help I’ve learned to play to my strengths. I’ve designed a simple task management system involving 3 lists and 3 corresponding “task racks” that I engage with daily. I’m performing at a completely different level, and I feel  energized! I no longer worry about things falling through the cracks, they are safely tucked away on my lists.  The fundamental shift is that I’m no longer letting life run me around: I’m forging my own path with my intentions, decisions, actions, and self-confidence.


I’ve worked with Nia over the past two years. We began by defining my life goals. In a gentle and patient manner she’s helped me tackle some of the problems I face as a very disorganized yet creative person who struggles with ADHD (I’m blessed with lots of creative ideas racing through my head!) that’s only been recently diagnosed. I now understand that I have difficulty establishing routines and finishing projects, and I’m very aware that I need to include structure in my life. Nia’s helped me to work on strategies that combat my mental and physical clutter, so that I can make more room for the creative side of me to be successful.


Nia provides an energetic combination of expertise, sensitivity, excellent humor, fun, and a genuine desire to help.


I could go on and on about Nia, but will keep it to three points here. First and foremost: Integrity. It’s the #1 priority in everything I do; and if you spend any amount of time with Nia, you will know she is living from it. Second is the way she models having healthy boundaries while being at the same time sensitive and generous in serving her client’s growth. Third, her skill level not only is high; she regularly puts time and energy into deepening and expanding it through continuing education. I am fortunate to have worked with her.


What do you do when you’ve seen yourself (and lived!) as a talented, creative and competent individual but discover that major life shifts and turning points leave you feeling a bit bereft, stuck and at a loss? This was me as I faced retirement, a move across the country, the end of rewarding era and the beginning of new unknown possibilities. I had the desire to get things in motion, but honestly felt stuck and overwhelmed. A bit of research, a few phone calls and great, good luck brought me in contact with Nia.

Nia saw who I’d been and brought me back to myself. Our conversations were uplifting, focused and supportive. Tasks and details began to clarify and gain muscle. Nia helped me discover a process of engaging, imagining, and “doing” that began to build momentum. I remembered how joyful hard work and growth can be when it’s aligned with the desires and values (both big and small) of who you are and where you’re going. I’m on the other side of change now and can’t wait to continue my work with Nia as I begin the next, beautiful cycle of life.”


Nia is a positive presence and a great guide. She’s creative and collaborative. She has helped me to get clear on my goals, to understand myself better, and to take new actions and develop practical strategies for circumventing the roadblocks that pop up between me and my goals. She’s supported me in learning how to manage my time and to-do’s in more effective ways. Our coaching sessions are always enlightening and have been a key part of my overall success.


Thank you so much for yesterday! You helped me pull apart a major energetic log jam.


I still thank the person who recommended Nia to me several years ago. She has made a huge difference in my life by helping me set priorities and follow them. If someone were to ask me to sum up Nia in a single word, I would choose “empathy.” It is a quality you cannot fake. Nia is keenly interested in her clients lives and the issues they face. She really enjoys her work and that enthusiasm is contagious. I looked forward to our appointments and felt a sense of elation and accomplishment after we finished. I can’t recommend her highly enough.


Coaching with Nia makes me feel like singing and dancing! She helps me figure out what works for me. She helps me see possibilities and not feel so overwhelmed. Working with her is truly life-changing.


Nia has been very helpful in helping me think through the admin-related functions of my business. I knew what I needed to do, but couldn’t figure out where or how to start. Working with Nia has helped my office to run a lot more smoothly.


I met Nia in a previous incarnation when she did professional organizing. Anyone who saw my basement back then knows why I needed her help. At the time, I felt that she was massively underutilized because of her intuitive psychological skills and intelligence. I was happy to find out that she had transitioned into life coaching, and that she has all the pertinent training for that field. She’s honest as the day is long and I’m really rooting for her to develop her practice. I don’t usually wax on like this about referrals, but I really think she’s got the good stuff.
