Working with Nancy in this coaching relationship has helped me move forward
with a successful career change – living my dream of working part-time, yet
making enough money to meet my expenses, plan for retirement, and have fun
too. I’ve developed new healthy living habits, including how to spend money
in a healthy way and how to save money. I set up a home office, set up a new
business, and learned the ropes for being self-employed. Nancy has been a
fantastic coach, cheerleader, resource expert and motivator.

I worked with Nancy for a little over a year focusing on several big life
questions. I was wondering about work direction and, in fact left my job
midway through our work together. I was wondering about my deep tiredness
and developed a practice and philosophy about 'deep rest' in our work together.
But the biggest question I had was about Love and how to know it better.
I have cultivated a gentleness and compassion for myself and my family and
friends that, I believe, has really given me far more access to the love
that is available than I knew was possible. Working with Nancy on a weekly
basis was gently challenging work that helped me to transform the atmosphere
of my life and took me deeper into knowing and trusting myself. I recommend
her highly. (By the way, I am working again at a job that fits my pace and
energy and values.)

Being coached by Nancy Okerlund is a remarkable experience. The breadth and
depth of her knowledge, versatility, and intuition allows her to tailor her
approach to the needs of each client. Her allies are truth, wisdom, humor,
skillfulness. They are now my allies too. Working with Nancy has brought
me a renewed sense of purpose, and a variety of new perspectives with which
to approach my goals.
I worked with Nancy for 1˝ years during a time that I was in rehabilitation
and devastated from a serious physical injury from an accident that left me
unable to sit or drive for eight months. I initially entered a coaching
relationship with Nancy based on her excellent reputation, because I desperately
needed emotional and practical support when I was losing motivation and
hope. Nancy has a profound capacity to create a spiritual, compassionate,
yet practical and inspiring pathway which enabled me to not only stay
motivated but to rebirth myself through this devastating physical injury.
As a result of Nancy’s work I have been able to transform and create a new
and balanced life that I never imagined possible. My appreciation and gratitude for
Nancy is immeasurable.
Working with Nancy has been calming and invigorating. Her skill at looking
at the bigger picture has helped me develop new perspectives as I change my
work at mid-life. The techniques she employs during our sessions together – deep
listening, thoughtful and challenging feedback, and constant encouragement reveal
her commitment to coaching, and to helping me explore my heart’s desire.
My life was like a potato until I started coaching with Nancy - now it's like a red hot
