“Authenticity. That simple word, authenticity, led me down a path of exploration and self-awareness, with Jeff guiding me along the way. Jeff took the time to ask thought-provoking questions, in an effort to understand my motivations and to understand my expectations. I’m not sure why I opened up so quickly to Jeff. Perhaps it was because he seemed to embody the principle of authenticity and it was something that I felt was missing in my life. Flash forward several months later, I view the world with a new perspective which has helped me both professionally and personally. I have a renewed sense of confidence, perspective, and community.”
