Transform Your Relationships

Learn new communication tools with coaching and courses.

None of us set out to shame the people we care about to get them to do what we want them to do. But we don’t really have other tools of persuasion in our toolbelt, and to be honest, that’s what has been modeled for us. The result? Our marriages crumble and our kids don’t want to be with us.

We wish we could change other people, but we can’t. So what can we do?  We can change ourselves and the way we communicate.

Let Dr. Heidi come alongside you with compassion and wisdom to help you learn new communication tools that will grow the trust in your relationships. 

Whether you want to communicate better in your marriage, with your children, in your extended family, your relationships at work, or even grow as a public speaker or voiceover artist, Dr. Heidi would love to work with you as your communication coach.

I’ve been not only the recipient of Dr. Heidi’s coaching expertise but so impressed with her ability to “see” people’s hearts. She listens and speaks into where people are and asks such great questions that help you to think and go deeper, to discover just what you need to do to move forward. Her communication coaching moved me into deeper and healthier relationships.  I can’t begin to describe the significance in my life.

I recently took Dr. Heidi’s class and found it to be incredibly engaging. She used a variety of interactive activities and examples to explain complex concepts, and the role-playing exercises were particularly helpful in reinforcing my understanding of the material. Through these exercises, I gained valuable insights and skills that I was able to apply to real-world scenarios AND in Real-time!

I can’t say enough about Dr. Heidi and the help she provided me. After a few sessions I had the confidence I needed to deliver a speech without anxiety. Her knowledge and experience allowed her to make meaningful adjustments to enhance my delivery. My only regret was not engaging her earlier in my career. I would recommend her to anyone!

Exceptional Communication Coach: Elevating Personal and Professional Growth I am delighted to share my experience with Dr. Heidi who has profoundly impacted my personal and professional development. From our very first session, it was evident that Dr. Heidi possesses a remarkable ability to listen, provide valuable feedback, and elevate individuals to new heights. One of her standout qualities is her attentive listening skills. She creates a safe and welcoming space where I had comfort expressing my thoughts and concerns. Her genuine interest and empathy allowed for open communication, enabling me to delve deeper into areas of improvement without hesitation. Her feedback is nothing short of outstanding. She possess a keen eye for identifying strengths and areas of growth, offering insightful perspectives and practical strategies for improvement. Her constructive feedback is always delivered with tact and encouragement, motivating me to push beyond my comfort zone and strive for excellence. I am so grateful for the guidance and mentorship. I have experienced significant growth both professionally and personally. From honing my presentation skills or enhancing emotional intelligence, her expertise has been instrumental every step of the way. Working with Dr. Heidi has been a transformative experience, I would highly recommend.

I recently took Dr. P's class and found it to be incredibly engaging. She used a variety of interactive activities and examples to explain complex concepts, and the role-playing exercises were particularly helpful in reinforcing my understanding of the material. Through these exercises, I gained valuable insights and skills that I was able to apply to real-world scenarios AND in Real-time! If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend taking this course in person. The in-person experience allowed for better opportunities for group discussions and hands-on activities, which added another layer of depth to the learning experience. This is the best course I've EVER taken!

I would highly recommend hiring Dr. P to work with your leaders. Dr. P has worked with my leadership teams on several occasions, and each time, my leaders have given rave reviews. She has helped them understand their own communication styles better and has taught them how to use creative and curious communication to effectively deal with difficult situations. I have seen a positive change in the way teams are managed with a more authentic, non-shaming style that uplifts the entire environment. It has been transformational for my leaders.

As a business coach I gravitate toward leaders of strength. Heidi had my immediate attention at first meeting. I have since discovered that she has both the experience and the competency required to be a Communication Ninja! Even more, I find her genuine enthusiasm to help people succeed to be so very winsome. If you lead people then it is mission-critical to communicate effectively. You can't afford dissonance between your intent and the actual outcomes. Heidi will be very valuable in helping you assess and improve ... and succeed!

I've been not only the recipient of Dr Heidi's coaching expertise but so impressed with her ability to "see" people's hearts. She sees, hears and speaks well into where people are and asks such great questions that help you to think and go deeper, to discover or enhance just what you need to do to either begin or improve and move forward. She has such great wisdom in how to best help, teach and advise people in their speaking pursuits. I would highly recommend Heidi for any coaching, speaking needs!
