    I reached out to Liz for interpersonal coaching and I’m so happy with the results! I struggle to make connections and don’t know how to approach people or maintain conversations. Once I approach someone, I never know where to go from there. I have many gaps in knowing how to connect with people beyond a surface level. Liz has been helping me bridge those gaps and I’ve been able to make new friends and know how to communicate very quickly. I’ve also been learning so many new skills that I wasn’t aware of. She’s also so great to work with, I love her energy and I enjoy the conversations we have. She’s honest, fun and she’s got my best interests in mind. I’ve been getting so much insight about myself, and I’ve gained a larger awareness of the things that are holding me back. Every meeting we have I get actionable and specific assignments for me to use in the real world and they always pay off. I feel myself becoming so much better at my social interactions and I’m so happy. I’m so grateful to work with Liz, thank you so much for helping me be less socially awkward and misunderstood 😊

    I have been working with Elizabeth for almost a month now. She is an amazing speech therapist. My intonation has improved so much with her help. She explains things clearly, and she knows people who have the same first languages sharing similar common “mistakes” or patterns as they speak American English. She is a true expert.
