After hearing her tell her story and explain her skillset and approach to obstacles on the Burnt Out podcast, I knew Allison was the exact person I wanted to hire as a coach! Before I worked with Allison, I felt unsure about my ability to balance work, writing a dissertation, and navigating chronic pain. After only a couple of coaching sessions, I have a fuller toolbox and more confidence to work with and around my own obstacles. Allison encouraged me to re-see the strengths I already had and helped me to direct them towards building new habits and setting healthy boundaries around work. In addition to learning practical tools for time management, prioritization, and compartmentalizing my responsibilities, I greatly appreciate the ways that Allison taught me to catch myself when I turn to negative self talk and reframe my thinking towards my strengths so I can take action. All in all, I feel more confident and excited about my ability to problem solve and achieve my goals when it comes to work, writing, and thriving.
