Marti’s insight have been a blessing in my life. I’m 32 years old and I’ve know her for about 5 years. In that time, her counsel and advice ahs helped me enforce stronger boundaries with people to keep the crazy out of my life. She’s helped me realize that as an adult woman, I’ve tacitly enabled narcissists my entire life, because that was a survival skill I learned a s a child. I’ve continued that behavioral pattern as an adult, despite being unaware of it.
Recently, Marti and I spoke about “broken boyfriend pickers” and she helped me become aware of the pattern in the romantic partners I was choosing and how to break it. This has helped me have a deeper understanding of myself and sets me up to start making more informed choices. Now, the pattern of men I’ve chosen to have romantic relationships with stands out like a sore thumb, because they al model the relationship I had with my dad and brother, both of whom display narcissistic behavior.
Marti is very gentle in how she communicates and she knows more than she lets on. Her strength lies in how she calls out the truth like it is. You have to be ready to hear it and understand that she speaks the truth from a place of love, even if it mekes you feel uncomfortable. Putting yourself in her care would not be a mistake. She’s left everyone she’s met better off than she found them. I’d highly recommend her as a guide/mentor and coach.
