What Clients Say
I’m writing to express my gratitude and appreciation for the life counseling I have received from Carolyn Klika over the past year and a half. She has been invaluable to me as I have worked through major life changes and issues.
I felt an immediate connection with her as it became obvious how insightful and compassionate she is in her concern for the well-being of others. Lynn truly has a gift for being able to listen, discern, and offer insightful and helpful words of support, encouragement, and advice. I highly recommend her, without hesitation, to anyone seeking support and counsel in facing challenges, obstacles, and issues in their life.
You are an excellent Life Coach! Your sessions are powerful and so filled with the Holy Spirit!
My husband and I went to Carolyn for mediation at a time when both of us were really fed up. After even the first session, we regained some hope where we had none before. She led us through a process of identifying areas of agreement, and helped us to resolve issues that we didn’t feel safe to share at home. The amazing thing was that we both got immediate gains! Her way of mediating communication was respectful and caring. I would recommend her to anyone looking to improve their relationship. It’s a win-win!
You have been a great help to me. You’ve made me put things more in order and think a little differently about how I approach them. Thanks again for all you’ve done!
