I found Carolyn when I came across a piece she wrote regarding releasing judgment and expectations on TinyBuddha.com. Although I am not judgment free yet, I can now recognize when I am judging someone. It is a difficult practice, and I'm not always successful with it, but when I am, it is liberating. I've started teaching my kids about judgment and how to recognize it.
Before I started working with Carolyn I was taking a temporary leave from my sport, and was feeling a 10 out of 10 on stress. I felt anxious after practice, and for upcoming competitions. She helped me learn to trust my own inner voice, and manage my emotional and spiritual energy which helped me perform better on the ice once I returned. My stress level went from a 10 to a 2 or 3, and I ended the season with one of my best National Skates ever placing 9th in Pre-Novice ladies!
It feels like a big sacrifice of time, but it was time well spent to get me to the next level --emotionally as well as mentally. I was encouraged to confront my laissez-faire disposition to one of BEING the change to effect the desired change. I like the fact that this is not therapy, nor is it a rah-rah session. It is work towards a good endpoint, my endpoint--no one else's. I don't know how Carolyn can be so in tuned to the many facets of human behaviour, thought and emotions! I would absolutely recommend Carolyn as your professional coach.
If you have ever thought or not thought about coaching, Carolyn is the one...she is so real, has done amazing things for me. Taking judgment out of my life, or at least practicing it has really brought deeper connections. I have old friendships that are stronger than ever, and new friendships that are deeper than I ever thought. It’s that feeling of comfort we have with each other…the non-judgment going both ways. The barriers come down. It’s incredible to me. It’s brought more happiness to my life, less stress, and more positivity!
Carolyn is a powerful, transformative and insightful coach. How much my life has changed...I am still trying to digest it emotionally and spiritually. I had huge shifts, and deep realizations.

I wrote an article a few years ago called “The Foundation of Love” – Releasing Judgments and Expectations for Tinybuddha.com when I first learned the destructive impact of judgment in our personal relationships. I still hear from readers searching for the ‘foundation of love’ where this message of living judgment-free continues to resonate (Google find it first among 232 M hits!).
