coaching success stories
I ran into a few roadblocks after returning from a break to complete my doctorate. Though I was all but dissertation, I felt discouraged and considered giving up. I reached out to Dr. Guillory and she told me that giving up was NOT an option. She provided me with her own story of the roadblocks she faced while completing her program and offered some sage and encouraging advice for finishing my degree. Her support did not end there, as she traveled almost 2 hours to attend my final defense where she prayed with me and continued to provide encouragement. On December 15, 2018 I completed my PhD in counseling and am forever grateful for the encouragement and support Dr. Guillory provided! I consider her a lifelong mentor and friend!
