I reached out to Hyeon-Ju at a time of fatigue and deep confusion. I felt overwhelmed with even the simplest decisions. I needed something to reignite the passion I once had and to provide clarity on what steps to take next...Coaching helped me find the balance I was craving to transform my aspirations into action. Hyeon-Ju’s mental and spiritual exercises honed in on what it meant to be my authentic self and what it meant to answer questions in the most truthful way possible. She has a knack for telling when an answer doesn’t sit right. After six months of sessions, I am now starting to feel whole again – reuniting my passions with the present...I highly recommend Hyeon-Ju to anyone looking for a change!
Hyeon-Ju coached me through a very difficult work transition. What I love about working with her is the utter honesty from her heart and mind while always holding my desire to move forward into a better place in the forefront of our work. I would recommend Hyeon-Ju to anyone who has a dream and wants to make that dream a reality.
Having Hyeon-Ju as my coach has provided me with a space to unpack, process, and grow through many of life’s challenges, as well as its triumphs. I am so grateful for her wisdom, deep intelligence, and strength. Working with Hyeon-Ju has become an integral part of my life, the connection she provides is essential to my personal/professional growth.
I have been dealing with several major upheavals over the past couple of years, including an overseas move, the birth of a child, and switching from an academic to non-academic career path. The compounded stress of adjusting to these new realities has left me feeling untethered and searching. I can easily say that my first session with Hyeon-Ju was the most productive hour I’ve spent with a wellness professional; I was surprised by how deep we were able to go in a short period of time. As our coaching relationship has evolved, Hyeon-Ju continues to prove that she is a compassionate and attentive listener who makes lucid and insightful observations. She asks poignant questions and knows how to zero in on the heart of the matter. One of the things I enjoy most about working with Hyeon-Ju is her ability to tailor her approach according to my individual needs, and ultimately to help me move from a place of uncertainty to a place of courage and inner emotional, physical, and mental alignment.
Hyeon-Ju was instrumental in helping me through a very rough job transition. My employment contract was ending, I had gone through months of interviews, and I just couldn’t land the right job in New York, the city I’d called home for 15 years. Hyeon-Ju didn’t give me any easy answers, but she helped me figure out the right questions to ask in figuring out my next steps. She helped me get past panic mode and get out of a pattern of thinking that was hindering my ability to go after opportunities that were outside of my comfort zone. She’s a patient, empathetic listener and astute observer, and I really appreciated the fact that she herself had made a big, brave career move. I ended up moving to a new city, for a job I really love, and am grateful for the tools Hyeon-Ju gave me to help me make that decision.
Having Hyeon-Ju as my coach has been invaluable both personally and professionally. I sought her out for help through my transition out as the founding Executive Director of an Asian American immigrant rights group in the South. She has exceptional active listening skills and insights, and helped me process through my own feelings of letting go as well as the practical steps and relationships involved in working through my succession. Hyeon-Ju provides a great mix of spiritual and practical tools while also gently lifting issues to light...Hyeon-Ju’s coaching helped me navigate this major transition with grace and maximize my own personal growth in the process. I am now working with her in clarifying what I want in my next leg of life’s journey and am grateful for her coaching!
