“This was and continues to be a great investment!”
“I’m managing my time better; I’m getting more jobs; I have more clarity”
– Michelle, Connecticut
“Before working with Adrienne, the Soul Power Coach™ I struggled with taking charge of my schedule, productivity, and holding myself accountable to stick to these systems once in place. I decided to sign up for the Soul Power Coaching Program because I wanted to implement strategies, structure, & systems into my life, while still being true to who I am and enjoying life.
Since I started working with Adrienne the Soul Power Coach™, I’m managing my time better; I’m getting more jobs; and I have more clarity in my Guidelines for Living® about what the specific hurdles are for me. Now that I have more clarity, I am structuring my life according to my unique purpose and I know exactly how to get back on purpose. What I like the most about working with Adrienne is that she is not feeding me answers. She is making me think instead of thinking for me. Adrienne sits back, listens, and prompts me for responses. It’s more valuable to me because I’m learning to come up with the answers myself. The guidance is coming from my authentic self more than anything else.”

“My career goals became clearer as I discovered that I was standing in my way.”
“Not fully where I want to be yet, but I’m so much closer, & I’m sure I’ll reach there now.”
“Made me aware of my power at a point when I felt powerless.”
– Sydney, Washington, D.C.
If there was one word I could use to describe what I received from the Soul Power Coach™ program, it would be…POWER!
Adrienne is “THE” Soul Power Coach™ (aka T. N.)! Adrienne provided me with the tools to recognize my power, be aware of its presence, and how to tap into it. The tools I learned during my conversations, showed me how to trust myself again. By using my words and my voice, I gained the confidence to trust myself with what I feel! I know I am responsible for identifying my power and gaining it back. I am now aware of how fear shows up in my body and how to use it to empower me. I know I have all that I need to be within me and how to live a life of unspeakable joy! This experience made me aware of my power at a point when I felt powerless.
Now that is POWERful!
Thank you Adrienne!

“It was a classic case of burnout. Helped me find the peace I had been seeking”
– Jattu, Maryland
“My journey to working with Adrienne was a long one. In September 2010 I made the decision to leave my job as an obstetrician-gynecologist to pursue my own personal wellness. At the time I did not have a clear picture of what wellness was for me but I was confident the current situation was not it. Six years in private practice, after four years each in medical school and residency training, had left me emotionally and physically drained. It was a classic case of burnout. After some down time for rest and rejuvenation, I decided to return to work in a capacity where I was still able to help other people. This time I wanted to do it in a way that was both fulfilling and energizing.
The groups that always touched my heart the most were those struggling with excess weight and my fellow burnt out physicians. Unsure how I could help the latter, I knew I could address the former by working as a personal trainer. However, as I became more successful as a personal trainer, I found myself reverting back to the old feelings of constant exhaustion. It made no sense to me because theoretically I had a much less stressful job now. The fact was I managed to bring the same maladaptive life skills to personal training that I had as a full-time ob/gyn.
Once I recognized I am best able to help others when I do what I need for myself, I made a special effort to focus on all aspects of life that contribute to my well-being, not just fitness and nutrition. That is when I started working with Adrienne. Her simple 30 second challenge made it clear to me I was ignoring many life areas that factor in to my personal satisfaction. My main goal with coaching was gaining skills to make important decisions for my future and to maintain a sense of peace in my daily activities. Adrienne brought the right combination of encouragement and challenge to help me see for myself what held me back and what drew me forward. By employing the tools from coaching, I was able to home in on my life purpose and to put systems in place that allow me to live true to that purpose every day. Being genuine to myself in my decision-making helped me find the peace I had been seeking since I stopped practicing medicine. I also got the clarity I needed to establish my own wellness business.
The quality I found so refreshing in working with Adrienne is her respect for my ability to know myself. The world is full of people who can tell you what they think you should do. Adrienne has the skill of helping you acknowledge what you already know you can do. That is when you feel your real Soul Power”

“Making the right choices. Finding specific healing around my relationships”
– Maribeth, Virginia
“Before working with Adrienne, the Soul Power Coach™ I worried about whether I could maintain my lifestyle if I left my day job to pursue my soul purpose to be a healer for animals and people. I was exhausted trying to create a second job. The thought of struggling to survive was daunting. The fear of having to generate income rather than get a paycheck was keeping me in a job that was safe.
I decided to work with the Soul Power Coach™ because I knew if I didn’t make changes, I would continue to be exhausted and miss opportunities with limited time and energy. I wanted to be doing what I am called to do in a joyous and effective manner that generates more than enough income. I needed someone to push me off the cliff into entrepreneurship after helping me design a good parachute so I don’t crash. Adrienne is doing that.
Since I started working with Adrienne, I am more purposefully acting based on what I want in my life. I am moving forward significantly in all the results I wanted to achieve. My invaluable life purpose statement fills my body up with loving and very positive energy. I know exactly how to frame my outlook and my actions, and know that I’m making the right choices. I use the guidelines Adrienne helped me develop to anchor into the new reality I am creating when I start to feel like I’m drifting. I’m finding specific healing around my relationships and I’m manifesting well. That’s no small thing!
Now with my business, I don’t spend a lot of time worrying about who shows up to be healed or wondering ‘what if.’ This frees up energy to just move into a place of healing instead of spinning my wheels. I am more effective completing things that need to get done. I know exactly how to tell my negative voice to shut up and I’m keeping myself on track, and focusing on actions.
I appreciate the way Adrienne held my hand but then actually pulled me forward. It was not uncomfortable but I would not have gone there without her. What Adrienne is teaching me is becoming an internalized part of the way I look upon my life – an integral part of how I problem solve; make decisions; and choose what I’m going to do in the future.

“First time in my life, I love “me”, I trust “me”, I value “me”. That’s priceless.”
– Kareem, Maryland
“Before working with Adrienne, the Soul Power Coach™, I was busted, disgusted and broke in my mind. To put it plainly, life had me by the horns and was riding my back like the devil himself had created me as his poster child for destruction. If the tests, trials and tribulations existed, it entered my camp and set up shop for far too long.
One day, unsuspectingly, a young woman had a conversation with me. You see this was at a gathering where the tone was about relationships and “who” we are in them. I realized that a relationship was not an option for me because I was far too broken to give, let alone receive. So, for her to see right through me with all my unanswered questions was quite, let’s see, miraculous. You see, Adrienne touched my heart when she spoke to me. So much so that she intrigued me to give her a call the next day. The rest is a love story like no other.For the first time in my life, I love “me”, I trust “me”, I value “me”. That is priceless. She is pricele$$. Adrienne continues to tell me that it is not her and my response to that is, “Thank you for allowing yourself to be the vessel”.Feel free to contact me to receive more information about the benefits and tools of Soul Power Coach™. I am still using them today.”Enriched and Living Phenomenally!”

“Listen to my own voice to discover solutions that allow me to get out of my own way and show up for myself.”
– Deniece, Washington, D.C.
“Adrienne has been a substantial guiding force towards helping me listen to my own voice to discover solutions that allow me to get out of my own way and show up for myself. The following is one of those solutions: My alarm was no match for that inner (sleepy) voice that easily convinced me to hit my snooze button multiple times each morning causing tardiness and unreached goals. I needed a voice besides my own to convince me that NOW is the time. I created an Mp3 that was so motivating; I created a video immediately after. Snooze? What snooze?” – Deniece Pope, Washington, D.C. Human Resources Specialist
