What People are Saying
"Thanks so much for everything - the sessions with you are always super helpful and empowering." - N., Attorney
I hope you've been well since the last time we talked. I wanted to share with you some good news today:
[X] and I got engaged this week!!!
I wanted to quickly email you to thank you again for helping me work through some of my personal baggage last summer when I started to see you for some relationship coaching. You played an integral role in helping me develop better coping and conflict resolution skills during a very dark, intense chapter of my life, and I am so grateful. Truthfully, my relationships with myself, [X], and other people in my life have been amazing and so much more fulfilling and compassionate since then, largely because of your guidance and advice.
THANK YOU AGAIN!
"I highly recommend working with Atieno; I consider the time spent with her a very wise investment in myself. As a result of our work together, I have a clearer vision of what I want in my life and the tools to make that vision happen. She is warm, open, intuitive and understanding person who in one sentence could turn my perspective around on an issue. Her coaching has helped me change the course of my life in a positive direction, and I recommend her to anyone wanting to maximize their life and their potential." -E., a VP in Real Estate
"Atieno is an amazing coach. After coaching with her, I started online dating, and within the year I was married. We just had a baby. I whole-heartedly recommend coaching with her - she makes the process fun, and she is the real thing - understanding, creative, and insightful enough to push you to really reach the results you want." -Laura S.P., Economist, The World Bank
"Working with Atieno helped me plan a retirement that will make a difference in the world and to achieve breakthroughs in my family relationships that I never imagined possible. The process was a gentle journey into personal insights. Her work is absolutely extraordinary." -Fred Nunes, Sr. Facilitator, Leadership and Organization Effectiveness unit, The World Bank
"My experience working with Atieno has been profound and life-changing. I was embroiled in an intense conflict and wanted someone to help me keep my head above water. I've become much more effective, with new skills that let me maintain my balance in the face of huge passions (mine and others'!) In every session she offers some insight that helps me unlock something important and has given me practical tools. As Atieno helped me explore, I began making some shifts. I started feeling lighter, more flexible and balanced." -N.

"Atieno is a natural facilitator; experienced, capable, intuitive, brilliant and highly perceptive. She's been especially good at helping the group see its own behavior without having people become defensive." -Merianne Liteman, Co-Author, Retreats that Work
"Atieno clearly discerns patterns in behavior and is not afraid to point them out. She is comfortable in both the evocative and provocative modes, prepared to gently elicit information from the group, but also to intervene more strongly when necessary. In Atieno's quietly confident presence, a group has the reassuring sense that they are in good hands." -Sheila Campbell, President, Wild Blue Yonder
"Her class is always full and I feel positively challenged, but never frustrated; her calm, respectful, understanding and knowledgeable manner makes it a pleasure.
