Although I am a counselor myself, Vida’s coaching style was a breath of fresh air. I learned a lot because, at its core, her work with me incorporated my own learning patterns, exposed me to a variety of new spiritual practices and also included traditional counseling methods. Vida was tough and gentle, supportive and challenging, and disclosing and approachable. The result was a holistic counseling experience that has lead to a great deal of personal growth and development on all levels. The world looks different to me now. I suspect it wasn’t the world that changed.
