Here are some of the things
that my clients have said about my services:
"Marije's coaching helped me
create a successful business in a much shorter time than I would
have been able to on my own, with fewer mistakes and wrong directions.
She helped me both personally and professionally think clearly about
my goals and values and how they affect all aspects of my life!"
~ Sharon, Administrative Assistant,
"Marije Miller is a skilled
personal coach. One of the most important qualities for a coach--and
one which she possesses in abundance--is the ability to cut into
the heart of an issue and to focus on it without projecting her
own judgment on her clients' issues and lives. Marije coached me
through two months when my life was in transition in nearly every
aspect. My response to the upheaval I was feeling at the time was
to just avoid the issues, and Marije helped me to re-focus on what
I held important, and then with getting what I needed to. I appreciate
Marije for supporting me in being accountable for my goals and plans;
for her encouragement throughout this time and beyond; and for her
clarity when my thinking was clouded."
~ Nikki, former Engineer, currently
Real Estate Agent, Auburn, CA
"I liked having the freedom
to discuss what was on my mind. I could openly discuss any problem
that I was having and it would be well received. I feel that I benefited
from coaching quite well. I got new focus, and coaching helped to
locate my internal motivation. Coaching helped to direct me to where
I really wanted to be. I was not looking hard enough at the road
that I wanted to travel, but coaching helped me to get back on track
and take the steps towards reaching my goals. Coaching has boosted
my self- esteem quite a bit. It was a major help to work on things
that I have accomplished and goals that I have reached. It is something
that I never paid attention to, or was embarrassed to for fear that
I was being too vain. But I learned that it is not being vain, it
just showed me what I am able to do, and what more I am capable
to accomplish. I like knowing I have a fan out there, supporting
me in my decisions! Thank you times 1,001!"

Degree, Agoura Hills, CA
"Marije's firm and caring approach
helped get focused on my top priorities and on what I want to accomplish.
She was able to help me determine what obstacles stood in way, how
to get around them, and achieve my goals and objectives."
~ Michael, Program Manager, Oakland,
"I really enjoyed the talks
I had with Marije, I feel great. I am permanently changing my should
to could!!!!!! I was able to talk and talk and then Marije would
ask this awesome question and I would have a very important insight
by the end of the session. Marije showed me I was able to make a
life change that is perfect for me and my values."
~ Connie, K-Teacher in Honduras,
"Marije has a gift of guiding,
coaching and motivating from her heart. In a very short time I was
tackling and accomplishing things that I had been merely talking
and thinking about doing for months. Amazing! I would recommend
Marije to anyone who wants to get unstuck in their life or wants
to improve their quality of life and feel so much better about themselves.
She truly can help you live Your Greatest Life. As a coach, she
can be your guardian angel."
~ Greg, Coach, Auburn, CA
"Marije came into my life at
a time when I needed her desperately, and didn’t even realize
it. She had the insight to see my dilemma before I did, and she
brilliantly pulled me out of the rut I was sinking further into.
I had been making life and family decisions based on all the wrong
reasons. I was so busy keeping up with life’s daily demands,
that I never stopped to think about what I wanted out of life, and
where I had hoped I would be at this point in time. Marije got to
the heart of my problems with her finely-tuned listening and paraphrasing
skills, which resulted in brilliant insights about me, I had never
known before. She probed deep into the core root of my long, lost
dreams and desires to find out what I truly wanted in life. Her
homework assignments taught me to be honest with my true, inner
self. After just a few sessions with Marije, and my new positive
outlook, my life began to improve. Within weeks, I was offered a
new and exciting career in a beautiful community where, I know,
my family and I will be happy forever. I know, now, that I’m
on my true path in life. Marije is not like a psychologist or counselor
that just listens to my problems. She’s that guardian angel
we all secretly desire that truly has my best interests at heart,
and wants me to succeed for me. She’s brilliant!!! There is
no greater investment I could have made. It’s and investment
in myself… and my family’s future happiness."
~ Schnee, from aspiring Nurse to
Architectural Coordinator, El Dorado Hills, CA
"Marije's approach during our
coaching session was very direct, yet gentle. She got quickly to
the point where I needed help. Afterwards I felt good, but also
very tired, because we worked through so much. Maybe that's because
of my M.S., but now that I've rested I feel so much clearer. I really
feel encouraged; I felt fearful and kind of in a rut, but I feel
so much stronger now! I am excited to start the project we've designed
~ Britt, San Jose, California
"I was looking for a way to
stay focused on my goals. Also, I wanted a place to bounce ideas
around. These expectations were met with every meeting. Coaching
was more than I expected. Looking back I realize that each time
Marije pointed out to me that I had taken a step closer to my goal,
I was motivated to continue working to get even closer to it.
Marije is very good at letting you
know when you accomplish something, even the smallest step. This
way I was able to see them for myself and give myself credit for
them. It was helpful for me each time Marije let me know when I
was avoiding the work. She does this in a direct way but without
judgment. When Marije repeated things I said, it let me know I was
being heard and that we were on the same page. I found the experience
very valuable. I continue to pull from the sessions when I need
~ Julia, Fremont, California
Marije, I just wanted you to know
how much I appreciate the time and effort expended on your behalf
in our meetings. Your focus and prompt attention to the issues at
hand, along with the continued support that you offer make reaching
those goals a reality. It's a pleasure knowing you and I thank you
from the bottom of my heart!"
~ Barbara, Grass Valley, California
"Marije is an absolute gem.
There is no doubt that she thoroughly enjoys her work. It shows
in her total commitment to her clients and their success. There's
nothing 'cookie cutter' about Marije's approach. She digs in and
gets to know her clients and helps them achieve their goals on their
terms, at their pace, and to how each client is wired up. Since
Marije is available over the phone and connected via the Internet,
there is no excuse not to hire her - no matter where you live!"
