“About two months before my wedding I reached out to my friend Andrew Jacobs of Appalachian Coaching to see if he would be willing to help me get #weddingready. I went into the coaching process thinking I’d walk away with a good workout routine and a fun-squelching diet to get me ready for my big day.
What I left with was a beautiful new idea of what exactly I was hoping to achieve. It wasn’t quantifiable in any number, size, or image. It was defined in an image of a future me- happy, healthy, content, strong, and feeding the people I love. A life full of homemade bread, and spices, and a house that looked lived-in and where people felt safe and loved. Andrew helped me learn how to live into that dream starting now and to rest from any joy-draining pursuit of what the world tells you to be, do, or eat.
So you know what I’ve been up to? Trying new recipes with spices I’ve never heard of before, baking bread, exercising, not exercising, eating pizza, eating salads, laughing, and living into the freedom that comes from loving your past, present, and future self.
All of this took place under the guidance of a genuine, caring, empowering and supportive coach.
If you’re a human with a goal, consider letting Andrew Jacobs join you on that journey. You won’t leave with a formula, recipe, or equation, you’ll leave with solutions you already posses.”

“In my experience, coaching has the effect of making one’s feelings, reactions and judgments about a situation seem both legitimate and within our control to change.
It has an immediate stress reduction effect simply from making the participant feel less alone in their experience, and less fearful about their lack of control over the outcomes of our actions. It instills some confidence in the knowledge that there is a resource to turn to when challenges seem insurmountable.
In my opinion, coaching is a tool with great potential to reduce stress, burnout and turnover among human services professionals.”
Try it for yourself.
“I worked with Andrew from November 2017 to June 2018. He helped me to focus on specific goals, and imparted techniques to maintain focus that included centering meditation practices and assigning tasks to work on outside our meetings.
He asked concise questions about what I wanted to achieve and helped develop a strategy that included focusing on what I was hoping to get out of the goals I set. Andrew also pointed out that focusing on oneself is not a selfish act, but important to self-awareness. This enabled me to approach my relationships in an authentic way.
My overall all experience with Andrew was positive and has helped me to approach tasks with a better attitude.”
