"Jill Gould combines firsthand experience and intelligence with wisdom and compassion that is rarely seen in the world today.  Whether you need advice, support, absolution (in a secular way of course) or just someone to listen in a non-judgmental way, she is your go-to person.  I cannot think of anyone I would have on my side!"

Robert M.

"Jill is supportive, responsive, and comforting.  Talking with Jill is like talking with an old friend."

Susan F.

"Jill is my go-to person for any problems or issues in my life.  She is always there ready and willing to listen and it is the quality of her listening and the depth and quality of her advice that really sets her effectiveness apart.  She listens without judgment and is fully engaged and present in the conversation.  Her insight and wisdom are incredible and she is always spot on with the advice and understanding.   Her warmth, kindness, and compassion make you feel comfortable and safe to share your deepest concerns.  I cannot recommend her highly enough.  You will be lucky and privileged to have her shoulder to lean on for advice, comfort, and support."

Jackie B.

"Jill is a phenomenal coach, friend, and confidante. She listens with great care, empathy, and compassion and has a keen sense for what is really going on—beyond your words. Once she’s made sense of all you are reaching for (or away from), she helps you find clearest, easy-to-follow path for getting where you want to go.  I recommend her to anyone who needs a shoulder, an ear, or a path out."
