"I would like to provide a reference for Mary Pat Potts as a Life Coach.  She helped me through a difficult time as I was trying to decide to make a difficult job transition.  I met with Mary Pat on several occasions at mutually agreed upon locations.  Mary Pat was well prepared with worksheets and a file folder for me to keep with the discussed documentation enclosed.  She stated that the work was mine and the worksheets and any comments I made were for me to keep and review as I needed.  She was there to guide me in the process by asking thought provoking questions regarding my values and what I wanted out of a new position.  Mary Pat is a great listener and was not judgmental about the answers I gave to the questions she posed.  Questions can be difficult at times when you are discovering that changes need to be made in order to maintain values and work life balance.  She provided different worksheets to write on, color on and rank favored options. 

I am recommending Mary Pat Potts as a Life Coach due to her ability to understand that the process is for her to guide while the decisions are you to make and own."

"I have had the privilege of working with Mary Pat off and on for a while. Mary Pat has been coaching me through some very big transitions in my life and I could not have gotten through these changes with as much ease without her help. Her coaching skills helped me identify and focus on the most important aspects of these changes and to face the fears that have held me back so much in the past. She helped me to clearly identify my values and use these as a guide to throughout my life. Our discussions are forever in my memory and her sensitive and insightful coaching will always guide me and inspire me. "

"Mary Pat has a special way of making those she is helping feel empowered.  She listens intently with an open mind that never passes judgement.   

Mary Pat has helped me believe in myself, she validates my strengths and values making me feel empowered to achieve any obstacle life may present to me.

A few years ago I was struggling with some life and career changes and decisions. Mary Pat challenged me to think about what it was I wanted to do, structuring my goals in a way that I’d never thought of before, helping me focus on the things that really mattered to me and how I could achieve them, ultimately finding the perfect career change for me.

I cannot thank Mary Pat enough for her wonderful insight, so beautifully worded.  For her support and encouragement and belief in me.  She validates my strengths and values making me feel empowered to achieve any obstacle life may present.

I highly recommend MaryPat as an excellent Life Coach."

"Mary Pat is a truly inspirational person, on whom I can depend upon in almost any circumstance. I know that I can trust her to keep my confidences and to give me perspective that I trust and can take to heart. She has inspired me to get out and explore the beauty of nature, to challenge my ability, and to stand up for myself in situations that are challenging both at home and at work. I admire her determination, her joyful attitude and ability to see through the “junk” to the heart of the matter at hand. I would highly recommend Mary Pat for a life coach or counselor."
