At the end of my five months of sessions with Rita, I was a changed person. I had found free-lance work, made peace, and eventually come to love living in Amsterdam, bad weather and all.  I am more active; I now have short-term and long-term goals for my life, personally, professionally, and financially.  In short, I am happy with the space I am in, the circumstance I live in, and overall, I am content with my life.  I would like to think that I am a living proof of Rita’s coaching skills, expertise and dedication to her mission in helping others.

Rita Brown is an amazing coach. She guided me in a difficult period after important transitions in my life. These transitions brought me financial uncertainties and the need to redefine my focus and priorities. Rita combined a structured coaching approach with beautiful adjustments to my personal situation. She provided a perfect container for my personal development, giving me the space to find my way. Keeping professional distance, she was deeply involved with my process, guiding and reflecting. Her integral background helped me to work on all aspects of my life in one process and to become a more whole person.

[Rita has] a passionate commitment to equity and the value of diversity…We deeply valued her thoughtfulness and attention to both the big picture and the tiny details….She never missed a beat…her observations and ideas hit the bulls’ eye every time.

Rita’s gentle way of coaching encouraged and challenged me to look at myself in new ways.  I really appreciated her responsiveness to my feedback about what worked and what didn’t, and her willingness to go with me and explore.  Even now I look back on my notes and find new insights and perspectives.

Rita is a very talented and skillful coach, as well as a beautiful human being. I was fortunate enough to have one high-impact session with Rita and the blueprint she co-created with me still influences my choices and actions one year later. In her coaching she combines curiosity, clarity and compassion in order to facilitate not only a shift towards more empowering actions and behaviors, but also towards a new way of being that honors both your current gifts and your future potential. I cannot recommend Rita’s skills as a coach highly enough.
