My Clients Say about My
John's coaching helped me better
understand my priorities and what obstacles I was facing at that point
in my life. We were then able to devise both short and long term goals
as well as plans for moving forward. I found his approach to be very
action oriented which allowed me to both understand my situation and
take concrete steps towards improving my life.

After I retired from Mental Health
Counseling, I began to slip into a
decline which escalated into a downward spiral of epic proportions. As
a "former LMHC" I rationalized that I should know enought to heal
myself. Fortunately for me, I read John Arnaldi's blog and immediately
recognized him as a person I could talk to. He has literally saved my
life. I recommend him to any person seeking help adjusting to life's
twists and turns.

As a social service professional with
many years of helping others face into their dilemmas, I recently
discovered that I was facing several new challenges myself! John's
coaching gave me confidence to face squarely into these issues. He
enabled me to quickly fashion perspectives and practices that felt
better and worked better. I continue to use these lessons daily.

I always look forward to your
presentation in my class and the results it brings. One student has had
a difficult time in learning the therapy role. A light bulb exploded
for her! She has really made rapid and excellent progress. Several
other students are also incorporating some of your content. Everyone
thoroughly enjoyed the class. You are a master teacher.

My sincerest appreciation for the
tremendous presentation you made to my graduate counseling class last
night. I spoke with some of the students after class, and they simply
unsolicitedly raved about your presentation, and especially about you.
Thanks for your professionalism, your excellent presentation and simply

Perspectives of a Friend
In the 16 years we've known each other,
you have helped me and others deal with life transitions: small,
medium, large, and catastrophic! Regarding family relationships, work
relationships, and marriage, you are a bit of a magician. You have an
uncanny ability to reach into your seemingly bottomless top hat and
produce exactly what is needed, no more and no less. Now armed with the
perfect tool, plan, insight, or attitude, I find myself newly empowered
and things finally make sense. Things no longer feel hopeless. Things
begin to get better.
Things would be so much worse at work without your coaching that I am
certain I would have walked-out or been fired. Something like that
happened to my predecessor there.
A week ago M. and I were in the bookstore looking at children's books,
and I saw The Tales of Br'er Rabbit. I was reminded how you
used the Tar Baby story to get me out of a very psychologically painful
and dangerous work situation a few years ago.
