“I was feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed by the future. Jen helped me to think about the different paths that I might take, and taught me how to evaluate the choices. Thanks to her insight, advice, and unique methods, I learned to be confident about my future, and not to regret the paths that I cannot follow. Thanks, Jen!”

WHAT IS GIFTEDNESS?
Giftedness is a mind construction – a way we take in the world, perceive and organize it. That construction is statistically uncommon, in terms of speed, complexity and intensity, and many gifted people don’t recognize they are gifted because they think everyone else is like them. The way a gifted person expresses their giftedness depends on many factors, such as type (intellectual only, or intellectual plus emotional, creative, and so on), level (mild, moderate, high, exceptional or profound), presence of other challenges (such as learning disabilities or neurological abnormalities), and the amount of support, recognition, appreciation and mirroring they’ve had in their lives. In other words, giftedness does not always look the same and is not a one-size-fits-all concept. Each gifted person’s mind comes with its own unique challenges and opportunities, and that’s what we help our gifted clients to embrace and constructively co-create with in their lives!
ABOUT OUR WORK
“Jen and I cut to the chase, we bulldoze through my complicated life to make sure the focus stays, all in just one hour’s time. She is flexible to work with, quick and prepared. Being unique gives you that edge, but it will put you in a lonely spot. It’s why I need Jennifer on my side. Thanks again, Jen!”

“Working with Jennifer has had a profound effect on my life. Through our work I was able for the first time in my life to find out who I really am and what I want out of life. I will forever be grateful for her insight and support. We also have a lot of fun!”
“In the time I’ve spent working with Jen, I’ve learned many things. Of these lessons learned the most important to me was learning to accept that life is full of positive experiences and negative experiences, positive people and negative people. Many of the variables in our lives are not within our control. We can’t control everything that happens, and we can’t control how other people act. The only thing we can control is ourselves and the way we react to life’s many circumstances. Jen helped me learn how to accept myself, and my life fully. She taught me to accept that the worst may happen but to go out and live my life anyway because a life of fear is not really a life at all. Jen helped me to take control of my life again and in doing so I got my life back.”
“Working with Jen first in group sessions, then in individual sessions for the last three years has really helped me to continue growing as a young adult. She has coached me on how to deal with my career in general, such as communicating difficult decisions to my superior, making tough career decisions by following my passion, managing impostor syndrome, finding my personal rhythm at work and balancing it with family life. Overall, I’ve learned how to manage my time so that I have become more efficient based on my personal needs, learning how to set my boundaries towards others and gain the full authority over my life. Jen’s coaching has made a big difference in my personal development these last three years and I’d strongly recommend her coaching sessions to anyone who is interested in self- and career- development.”
