The results of our weekly sessions surpassed all expectations. In concrete terms, within five months I obtained a new job that permits me to continue being a lawyer – a career path that I was on the verge of quitting despite years of education and hard work – while honoring my values, interests, and creativity and making a good living: a combination I never thought possible as an attorney in private practice in NYC. Astrid’s probing questions and value-oriented exercises played a significant role in giving me the focus and courage to identify and pursue my new legal career.
Astrid is one of the most inspiring people I know, having been incredibly successful in both her first career as a lawyer and her family life, while maintaining one of the most upbeat, optimistic, and forward-thinking personalities out there.

[At the Pace University Encore Transition Program], Astrid’s open and direct style challenged us all, made us less afraid of the unknowns, and affirmed our new uncharted directions. We all gained a deeper self understanding and established life purpose statements and action plans through Astrid’s work. I wholeheartedly recommend Astrid for her career coaching skills. Her respect and love for people will become evident early in your introduction.
