Gretchen is amazingly gifted...

Gretchen is amazingly gifted at holding space for her clients. During those tough decisions she was right there to walk with me. She is kind and patient, yet firm and always has my best interest at heart. I just finished my 9 week session with Gretchen and I went from tossing around a million business ideas to one solid plan that I feel great about. She has made a big impact on my life and I can't wait to work with her again.

She is "The Real Deal."

I highly recommend Any Lengths Life Coaching for anyone looking for career/life coaching services. Gretchen is an excellent personal coach and strives to make the most of each session by focusing on the needs and agenda that you set. She takes the time to do a thorough discovery of your goals and tailors your program to reach them. Gretchen is dedicated to your success and makes herself available when you need that extra push or to get "unstuck." This is not an off the shelf "one size fits all" program it is an individually customized counseling session. When I first contacted Gretchen I was highly skeptical of life coaches and career counseling, and now after working with her I can say that she is "The Real Deal." Gretchen is a skilled professional, dedicated to your success and anyone working with her will find immediate benefit. I'm thankful that I have had the opportunity to work with Gretchen and look forward to continuing to work with her in the future. I recommend that if you are looking for a life coach, career counselor or business consultant you call or email her after you finish reading this review. She is that good.

Her sessions are worth every penny.

Gretchen was a great resource for me in a recent job transition! She was thoughtful but honest in her coaching while I prepped for phone interviews and intensive all-day in-person interviews. Not only did she prep me for many interviews, she helped me find my strengths and I was able to communicate them in a digestible way to potential employers. Her sessions are worth every penny. Thanks for helping me move forward in my career.
