Great first session - first takeaways is that Joe is very personable and a good listener. I felt heard with what I wanted to communicate but also too, he was very constructive on how the conversation went to get the most out of it. I appreciate constructive feedback and guidance too, which Joe has given.

Joe is great. From the very first session he knocked it out of the park. I was immediately comfortable with his vibe and every session he provides very helpful feedback and ways to grow. Plus he does all the other basic professional stuff, he's on time, conscious of time, communicates well. 5 stars, highly recommend.
