“Marcia provided me with a meaningful exploration of the enneagram through her adept and compassionate questioning. I appreciated the exploratory approach. Marcia’s ability to mirror back to me the deeper feelings that I was not able to fully express at the time and her reminders to be aware of my somatic responses at certain points (and working with that) was a true gift. I am deeply grateful.”– D.A., Leadership Coach & Consultant
