I am grateful to my previous clients who have offered the comments below about their coaching experience with me. It was an honor to work with them on their goals and I am in awe of their accomplishments.
“When I began working with Mary, I was longing to define and commit to a new career direction since my youngest child was graduating from high school. My work with Mary was so inspiring and well directed, that not only did I begin a small but brisk business within 6 months of our first appointment, but I also addressed and tackled several deep-rooted issues that were life long roadblocks. Mary is like that tough love mom I always needed, and yes, her support was also lovingly unconditional! I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to work with Mary!”

“Mary was my transitons coach for 3 months and helped me immensely to release some baggage that I had been carrying around. She asked me some tough questions that made me delve deep into my soul, but it was just what I needed. Mary has a gift...she is extremely wise, has life experience and is very intuitive. She was able to figure me out quickly and knew what I needed to hear, something my therapist hadn't been able to do for 10 years. Instead of being in the victim role, I realize now that I am responsible and I am present for myself. I give Mary my highest recommendation.”
“As a client of Mary Apffel, I can clearly state that she is in every way an excellent Transitions Coach. She has a remarkable ability to see impartially, compassionately, and with strength to create a partnership with her clients. She empowers her client through the use of coaching techniques, discussion, questioning, and acknowledgment, to make their own choices and move forward in a positive shift towards what they want. I’ve known Mary for many years, and I know well her strength, determination, and integrity. Mary is a professional and I would heartily recommend her as a coach or consultant.”
-Suzi Garner, Artist, Author and Illustrator
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Mary Apffel and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a life coach. Mary treated all our sessions with a very professional nature always giving me knowledge and support. What I truly value about Mary is that she always brought warmth, compassion and humor to our talks. She is very thoughtful, and was able to discover my particular learning style in order to help me figure out how to best help myself. She created an open and safe environment for me to work towards my goals, and always held me and my goals in her mind. I would not hesitate, and look forward to working with Mary in the future.”
-Sarah Fox-Skutley, Teacher
“For over eight weeks, I had the privilege of having Mary Apffel as my Transitions Coach. In that time, with her guidance the "to do" list in my head became an easy set of achievable goals. These goals have now either been accomplished or have become daily healthy habits! Working with Mary has truly been a joy. I feel she has a special ability to work with people. She has a wonderful sense of humor and because of her sensitivity, I was very comfortable discussing a variety of topics with her. She kept me accountable for the goals I set for myself, but also opened my eyes to more possibility for my life.This was truly exciting and I am so grateful for her insight. I have become "unstuck" and many of my back burner goals have now been accomplished! I am looking forward to working with Mary in the future, and would highly recommend her and her services!”
