I owe you a very overdue THANK YOU – it truly changed my life.
I quit my corporate job without knowing whether or not I got the job you helped me prep for in our last session. I needed to quit to take my power back and it was quite an amazing feeling. For the first time in my life, I was actually OK with not knowing what the future had in store. But as luck would have it, I did get the offer. I took the job and have been there for 9 incredible months. My story of taking control of my health meant taking control of my life was featured on the Huffington Post in March! These two events really proved to me the universe works in mysterious ways, and from then on I really started trusting in it a helluva lot more!
The new job was the right fit in every way I needed, and it truly changed my life. The role leveraged my marketing skills but also allowed me to switch into the healthcare industry. My boss is fantastic and the culture allows for true flexibility. I've really enjoyed the challenge of learning all about healthcare and actually doing true marketing for the first time in my career.
But most importantly, I feel truly valued and respected every day, which has had this beautiful ripple effect on my entire life. Now it wasn't all rainbows and butterflies...it was REALLY hard for a few months adjusting to the new environment and fear definitely took over when I realized I had so much to learn.
Working with you was such a crucial piece to setting me up for success. I really learned to trust myself and see when I'm making decisions out of fear vs love. It's really stuck with me and I'm truly grateful for being able to work with you this past year. I'm really proud of the person I've become out of all this craziness that happened last year when I first reached out to you. This has been one hell of a year, but I understand now that it all needed to happen for me to learn everything I needed to and get super clear about how I want to live my life.

I healed. I can scarcely believe it, but it’s true.
Well, I did heal and as I write this, I can scarcely believe it, but it’s true. Adelma showed me how I needed to heal myself so that those scars would fade. She did not do it for me, but she gave me the tools to do it for myself.
Over several sessions, Adelma helped me find absurdly astute observations about myself – observations about myself that have always been on the tip of my tongue but never uttered aloud. How did she do that? She has a way of seeing the wonderful things about you and then guiding you to them. Adelma then articulated, without any judgment, the purpose of the practices, which led me to meaningful self-discovery. Concepts that have been a mystery to me about myself, but that I have always had a hint about, were carefully drawn out in our sessions. The concepts were never conculsory. Adelma does not label; she asks you to observe and describe in your own words without judgment. She has a sixth sense for this.
How do you be an activist so your life moves forward? Adelma knows how to do this.
A note on the tone. I always felt at ease and safe in the sessions. Because I fully trusted Adelma and felt that she was on my team and so supportive of my goals, I was able to relax and believe her when she suggested practices. Being open is so important because it is how you make progress. Adelma creates a truly judgment free zone so that you believe you can make the progress you want to make. Her intelligence and insightfulness are what make the program work and feel miraculous, but her talent in creating a caring and supportive zone is the cherry on top of what was a life changing and wonderful experience for me.

I started to see results very quickly!
Yes, we did make my eating and life habits much more balanced and I became better at monitoring and feeling my situation. As a busy expat who travels quite a bit, the balance can be hard to find. Adelma helped me with a lot of practical advice and tips and I started to see results very quickly.
Working with Adelma helped me to assess where I am at in the different areas of life and think where I want to go, what to focus on and how to get there. As a very concrete example, she helped me to achieve my longtime dream or running a marathon! I had started training a couple of times but never managed to get there on my own. This time I was prepared both physically and especially mentally and despite some challenges before the race I reached my goal! This preparation wasn’t only useful for the marathon, but also for a lot of other life situations and built my confidence to face bigger challenges.
I’m amazed how I still keep on seeing the continuous progress in many areas even several months after finishing the sessions with her. Some of the areas that I set a vague distant target for are becoming possible. Adelma gave me so many tools and planted a seed for keeping this progress going. Now I understand what she meant when talking about holistic lifestyle changes. Highly recommended!

I am a lot more confident, happier and feel terrific.
I had to change my whole wardrobe and can proudly wear slim fit and polo shirts for the first time in a while. I had my annual physical and all of my numbers were perfect. My doctor was very pleased. I am a lot more confident, happier and feel terrific.
Through Adelma, I changed my life style rather than adopt a fad diet. She tailored a program that fit my Caribbean cultural and culinary background and history. Thus I was able to eat food that I enjoy eating and not just twigs and leaves. Adelma was very supportive during the times that my weight loss plateaued and helped me to get back on track. I am so pleased I just signed up for another 3 month session!"
I felt a shift, peace and the empowerment of accepting every piece of ME!
Ended up being so much more…..
Joy & Brussels Sprouts came along at a low point in my life, and the routine of seeing and working through issues with Adelma was one of the key things that got me through.
Not only is there a focus to be good to your body, but a focus on mental and emotional nutrition as well! The tools and perspective I've gained while working with her made an extremely difficult life change that much easier.
I highly recommend Adelma and her services. Don't be afraid to open yourself up to all that she can offer to you!
