“Thank you is not enough for how much you have helped our family. From listening to me and actually hearing me, to the validations you provided, you have helped me to be a happier person and mom. The confidence you instilled in me has allowed me the opportunity to grow.
You gave so much and were present EVERY time, whether it was an in-home meeting or phone conversation. The tools and skills I developed were life changing. You took the time to hear my concerns and thoughts, and always provided multiple solutions or ways to see it differently. Your holistic approach for the things that could help us were very much appreciated. You followed through consistently, and again, I can’t thank you enough!
From the bottom to the top of my heart, and forever grateful,"
- J.A. Agawam
"I met Shelly in the spring of 2020, when I was at my lowest point as a woman and as a mother. At first, I was very hesitant doing sessions because of low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence. I also wasn’t sure if things would ever improve. Once sessions began, that all changed.
My sessions with Shelly were either via zoom, phone conversations or emails. She always returned my messages promptly whenever I had an issue. Shelly always gave me words of encouragement, which took me from lack of self-confidence to self-empowerment.
She helped me build my own toolbox filled with methods and techniques to help me solve issues with confidence as they came up in my life. The toolbox she helped me create has made me a better person to this day. Shelly has helped me with my inner personal growth. I would whole heartedly, without reservation, recommend her.”

“There are times in life when you unexpectedly meet someone that not only gives you hope but provides strength to help you move on. Shelly Hoekstra is that person.
After being in a very difficult 14-year marriage, I had no idea how I was going to raise 2 beautiful children alone until I met Shelly. Her positivity and encouragement got me through some challenging times. Shelly listens without judgment and that’s what I needed.
A year later, with Shelly’s guidance, I am a more confident woman than I was before. Happy, strong, and most importantly, a great mother.”
