A heartfelt thank you to the extraordinary individuals who wrote these kind words.

Whitney helped me turn my life around.
Before working with Whitney, I was struggling with burnout. I wasn’t sleeping. I was anxious and frustrated. I’d been laid off twice in one year and couldn’t even dream into what was next for me because I was so flattened by all my years spent in a stressful corporate environment.
Working with Whitney changed everything. With her support, I began to heal from burnout. I started sleeping better, feeling stronger and finding joy in life again.
As the anxiety and frustration melted, and my energy returned, I was able to think about what was next for me. Whitney was invaluable in helping me think about the things that bring me joy and tying those to prospective careers. Now I’m excited to be building my own business and pursuing a new path as an executive coach.
Whitney’s compassion, dedication and real-life experience with burnout were priceless gifts that have helped me turn my life around. Thank you, Whitney!
Whitney helped me recognize and reframe the distorted beliefs that held me back.
30 years in the stress of corporate environments crept up on me and I was living in an unhealthy normal without even knowing it. 60 hour work weeks, 4-5 hours of sleep a night, and unrealistic expectations of being able to do it all gave me a perfect Facebook life and a hollow, grumpy inner life.
With the help of Whitney’s coaching and tools, I have finally given myself permission to have a healthy self-care practice which gives me the energy and spirit required to follow my professional passion.
Whitney first helped me recognize and then reframe the distorted beliefs that held me back and then worked with me to try new approaches and develop new habits. What I really appreciated was working on one area at a time and not trying to do it all at once. This allowed me to create long lasting habits instead of quick, unsustainable fixes.
Whitney gets it – she took time to understand my challenges and to bring her wealth of knowledge and resources to develop a custom plan for long term success. I am forever grateful that Whitney turned her experience with burnout into a gift to share with others, like me.
Being coached by Whitney has been an invaluable experience.
Being coached by Whitney has been an invaluable experience. During our sessions, I can get completely present with myself, knowing that Whitney is there to LISTEN to everything I am thinking and feeling. But she does so much more than listen: Whitney equips me with the tools I need to deal with the challenges life throws my way; she helps me work out what I really want and need from a situation.
Whitney has guided me through challenging stages in my life by helping me overcome overwhelm and reduce stress and anxiety. It is because of her guidance and support that I feel I have the confidence to go forward more calmly, stronger, and more positively. With Whitney’s assistance, I know better now how to handle difficult situations, to identify my priorities, and to effectively manage my emotions and anxiety. That has made my life so much easier and happier.
Whitney believed in me and saw what I couldn’t.
Whitney is a joy to work with. Her compassion, deep listening skills and coaching supported me to accomplish and move forward in areas of my business where I’ve previously felt like I was spinning my wheels. I’m now doing what I set out to do with love and compassion for myself!
Thank you Whitney for believing in me and seeing what I couldn’t. I highly recommend Whitney to anyone interested in upleveling their life and especially upleveling their self-care.
Working with Whitney has been an amazing time of self-discovery and growth.
Before working with Whitney, I was unable to ask for what I needed and said yes when I really meant no. I struggled with overwhelm, fatigue, and depression. And my lack of confidence had me feeling stuck, not knowing how to fulfill my calling.
I have worked with Whitney Gordon-Mead over the last several months. It has been an amazing time of self-discovery and growth. Her compassionate coaching has helped me dig within to identify the blocks deep in my subconscious, hindering my growth and success. Understanding how much I let my past dictate my future was the first step in creating the life I want. Whitney expertly guided me to identify the fears that had me frozen and to break the strongholds that kept me from living the life I dreamed about. With her support, I no longer experience overwhelm, fatigue or depression. I am now able to assert my power and ask for what I want and need.
Working with Whitney has given me the confidence to do things I never thought possible, like write a book, speak in front of groups, and lead others as they work through their own traumas. I’m now taking risks I didn’t think I was capable of, as I share my story in writing and claim the life I’ve always wanted, knowing I can accomplish anything I dream of.
I spent over 50 years thinking I could do it on my own. I was WRONG! We all need support at some point in our lives. The key is to ask for and receive it… from someone you can trust. Whitney has been that person for me! With her guidance, I finally recognize my unlimited potential and I’m excitedly embarking on my new life path to fulfill my calling of helping other women work through their trauma.
Whitney, thank you for sharing your priceless gifts! I’m so grateful that I had the wisdom to ask for your support and guidance.
Working with Whitney made a huge difference.
Before working with Whitney, I struggled for years with burnout and a lack of balance in my life. I was in a constant state of stress and overwhelm, as if I were spinning out of control. I wasn’t sleeping well and frequently experienced anxiety, anger, and irritability, so my relationships at home and work were far from ideal. I also had great difficulty making decisions, and worried often about the unknown and how I might control the outcomes of life situations.
Working with Whitney made a huge difference for me. From day one, she was so easy to talk to and really understood what I was going through. She is kind, compassionate, and a great listener.
Our coaching sessions helped me realize that I was the one causing my burnout and the only way to turn it around was to start making myself a priority. Whitney showed me how to be more kind and caring to myself and I began to focus on my health and well-being.
Whitney also shared simple, yet powerful tools that helped me shift my mindset and actions. I no longer feel like I’m spinning out of control nor do I waste my time worrying. Instead, I see life from a more positive perspective and have let go of the anger and irritability. As a result of this, the anxiety is just about gone and I now typically sleep through the night.
Whitney supported me to create more balance in my life, and I now have a wonderful new job. It’s much easier for me to make decisions now, which means I am better equipped to be productive in my personal life and career. I’m also a better wife, daughter, supervisor, and colleague.
Thank you, Whitney!
