Freelance Trumpeter and Teaching Artist

Working in a field where big personalities often clash, I feel that Astrid’s seminar on conflict management was a fantastic boost to my own ability to skillfully manage conflicts.  I feel like I have a much better awareness of my own conflict management style, and most importantly I feel that I can more deftly identify the most appropriate path forward in a given situation. Thanks Astrid!

Astrid has an incredibly positive yet focused energy that she dedicates towards helping individuals and organizations discover their best selves.  I’ve been fortunate to work with her on several occasions and I cannot tell you how much I value her wisdom, guidance, and encouragement.

Astrid is able to command control of a room of extremely diverse professionals and impart extremely useful tools, with hard resources and anecdotal guides. We laughed, oohed, raised our eyebrows, dug in, and stayed alert through fairly dense material thanks to Astrid's charm and skill.

Associate at Boutique NYC Law Firm

The results of our weekly sessions surpassed all expectations.  In concrete terms, within five months I obtained a new job that permits me to continue being a lawyer – a career path that I was on the verge of quitting despite years of education and hard work – while honoring my values, interests, and creativity and making a good living:  a combination I never thought possible as an attorney in private practice in NYC.  Astrid’s probing questions and value-oriented exercises played a significant role in giving me the focus and courage to identify and pursue my new legal career.  

Are you ready to take charge of your life and experience authentic success?

Then you have come to the right place! As a coach, I share my passion for excellence and authenticity in the service of my mission: to inspire and empower you to live a life of genuine personal, professional and creative success.
