Strategic Account Director in NYC (2)

[At the Pace University Encore Transition Program], Astrid’s open and direct style challenged us all, made us less afraid of the unknowns, and affirmed our new uncharted directions.  We all gained a deeper self understanding and established life purpose statements and action plans through Astrid’s work.   I wholeheartedly recommend Astrid for her career coaching skills.  Her respect and love for people will become evident early in your introduction.

"Astrid has helped me overhaul the way that I approach life. I initially began working with her as a way to improve my time management skills and establish new career goals. What I did not anticipate was the lasting and positive affects our time together has had on all aspects of my daily life. Through working with Astrid I've developed a set of essential tools with which to evaluate tough decisions of all shapes and sizes, and I've found better motivation and clarity of purpose in everything I do. She is an amazingly patient, non-judgmental listener with an incredible ability to synthesize information and draw out my inner strengths. Our sessions make me feel empowered and excited to pursue my goals."
