My story is unique to me, but I would venture to say similar and familiar to many.
I was emotionally, physically and spiritually bankrupt when I called Judith. Exhausted from grieving the death of three beloved pets in the short span of three months, in addition to family upheaval, I was in a desperate place. Years of not honoring myself, tending to everyone else first, drained what seemed like every bit of self-love I ever had. Which, quite frankly was not a whole lot.
Judith immediately shared a warmth and security with me that is simply her natural way of being. Drawing from her many years of coaching, she was able to assure me that I could trust her with my insecurities. No small feat.
Unlike therapy, there were few opportunities for long drawn out pity parties on how unfair life had been to me. Coaching, as I came to find out, was centered and focused on solutions. Judith listened, asked questions, then we went to work on what solutions were possible for my so called problems.
Through our weekly conversations, Judith somehow not only lifted me out of a very dark place but also with focused attention, encouraged me to see these obstacles as a way to learn and grow. And As a bonus, all my relationships have strengthened remarkably as a result of this newfound confidence.
There are so many little things that have changed in me that simply add up to a much happier, confident, self-assured woman. I just needed a little direction and urging, which I received through coaching with Judith.
I will be forever grateful that I took the leap of faith and worked with such a caring, compassionate and skilled professional coach. Judith Auslander is simply awesome!
-Liz Vachon (Homemaker and budding solopreneur)
I looked to life coaching as an alternative to regular counseling because I wanted something more interactive and to serve my immediate needs. I learned many concepts with Judith and I got to know myself better as Judith went thru various exercises that helped me pinpoint who I am and what I need as an individual. Most importantly I learned to value myself which is the best gift of all. I recommend coaching with Judith because it is done in a comfortable setting (your home over the phone) and thru consistency (once a week) and with her many years of knowledge and skill, all make for an excellent way to change old habits that, for many of us, are hard to break. Thank you Judith for all you have done for me.

Judith Auslander is a peer and dear friend of mine. I've had the opportunity to observe her in action and I've experienced her coaching and compassion personally. I have no compunction in recommending her as a very well qualified coach.
- Kim Blanquie (Life Coach)
Coaching pushed me to evaluate myself and my relationships. Each session left me with something to think about for the coming week. I am empowered to be more direct and not apologize for things that are not my fault. I no longer beat myself up.
Judith is a fantastic coach and listener. She boosted my self-confidence and gave me a more focused outlook on life by steering me away from blaming others and showing me, instead, how I can bring about positive changes in my life.
- Alfredo Torrejon - Electrician
Judith has a very comfortable presence. She uses humor nicely, asks good questions and summarizes the situation succinctly
- Scarlet Tay (Counselor)
I have had the pleasure of having Judith Auslander as my life coach. She has helped me tremendously in a lot of different areas in my life. Through her coaching, I learned to look at things in an entirely different way, to look at myself and what I am doing and the way I am reacting to other people. It has helped me save my marriage, and have a great relationship with my family members. I can’t begin to tell you the great difference it has made in my life, and it such a short time! I am eternally grateful to Judith for being such a great listener, and having such great ideas about how to react to other people. She also helped me achieve some goals I’ve had for a long time but couldn’t quite see a way to attain them. She helped me put them into small steps that were more realistic and achievable. All in all, I would have to say it has been a great learning and growing experience!
Judith, I felt so much better after our session. I have been in a good mood ever since! I feel like I am getting a new outlook on life and the way I look at other people, and I can tell it's going to make a big difference. It's funny because the things I thought were giving me problems, aren't what was causing me all the stress. It was self-inflected stress. I was blaming my problems on everyone else! Thank you so much for your help.
- Julie (Cabinet Designer)
Judith was compassionate, kind, and insightful. I felt that she was a partner in working with me on my issues, and kept me focused on results.
- Kimberly Berry (Life Coach)
As a result of my coaching session with Judith, my determination to achieve my central goal was strengthened - she helped me reflect on the spiritual purpose of my life as well as the material success I hope to achieve.
- Beverlee Patton-Allen (Author)
A tremendous listener. The rest of my morning was terrific after this motivating conversation.
- Justin Stark (Lawyer Coaching Services)
Judith got me to focus on a vision of where I want to be. I'd lost sight of myself. Judith guided me to see that I can actually make some relatively small, daily changes that will take me towards that vision.
- JuliAnna (Mother)
Judith got me talking about things and thinking about things that sometimes cross my mind, but I never seem to take the time to sit down and actually contemplate. After talking with Judith, I have a renewed interest in making the time to do this. She clearly listened to me.
- Chris Bradley (Banker)
I highly recommend Judith as a life coach. I have had the privilege of receiving coaching services from her and have found it to be one of the most influential life changing experiences I have ever had. Her coaching abilities are extraordinary. She is insightful, understanding, empathetic and intuitive. I have received more benefit from her skills and direction than I did from a career counselor, self-growth books and counselors in the mental health field.
Judith utilizes a wealth of resources and techniques to help effect change, push through plateaus and create an environment of learning and acceptance. She provides specific activities and assignments geared towards the individual’s immediate and long term needs. She projects confidence to her clients and provides a sense of hope while traveling along a sometimes foggy journey. Her coaching skills help emphasize the journey and not just the destination.
Judith has a positive, practical and humorous look at life that is infectious, inviting and encouraging. She feels comfortable in sharing her own struggles and successes and not only coaches, but acts like a “best friend”, giving honest feedback and useful insights.
I would not hesitate to recommend Judith as a life coach. I sing her praises to anyone who will listen and believe she is well qualified to assist anyone going through life transitions. Coaching is not just a job for her; it is a calling, a passion and a purpose. I am deeply grateful for what Judith has helped me do for my life. I now have tools to use, not just concepts and very practical ways of discovering my purpose and passions. She has helped me tap into who I am and identify my significance to the world.
Before meeting Judith, I didn’t know anything about life coaching or what it entailed. Now, I realize what an important service Judith provides and truly found good value in my life coaching investment.
- Marcia Rowland (Health Care)
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation and reference for Judith Auslander. Judith and I have maintained a close friendship for the last eleven years. Additionally Judith has supported me with a couple of coaching sessions as I tried to navigate through some challenging issues in my life.
Judith and I met while attending Pacific University eleven years ago. She was a dedicated student who always stayed on top of her assignments unlike myself who leans more toward procrastination. I quickly learned that there was never a dull moment when Judith was around. She exudes energy, joy, and the love of life. This was the type of person I wanted in my life!
After graduation, we worked together in a summer youth program provided through the City of Eugene Parks and Recreation Services. She was able to communicate appropriately to people from all ages, backgrounds and walks of life. It was in this context that I became aware of Judith’s great rapport with girls and women. There have been countless girls and young women that she has taken under her protective wing. Many of these have been so touched by Judith and the impact that she’s had upon their lives that they keep in contact via phone calls, letters and e-mails.
Judith Auslander brings sensitivity and a profound commitment to coaching. From Reiki, to EFT and much more, she is open and eager to expand her knowledge base so that she can best serve her clients as a coach. She is constantly reading, researching and attending workshops to expand her professional development. Being coached by Judith was a pleasant, eye-opening and productive experience. She was an excellent listener who asked probing questions, which helped me get to the core of the issues I was working on. After each coaching session I felt like a burden had been lifted and that I was motivated get to work bringing about change in my life. Judith offered practical and do-able tasks for me to help me reach my goals. Best of all, I was able to follow through and experience success! I look forward to many more coaching sessions with Judith.
I am pleased to give Judith Auslander my highest recommendation.
- Leah Willow (Educator)
Judith Auslander is a significant person in my life. As my life coach and friend Judith is allowing me to develop a new awareness of myself. Judith has outstanding qualities that allow her to work with people. As a client I feel safe communicating with her which allows me to open up revealing fears that keep me from moving forward in life. I find Judith to be tactfully bold when I become self destructive with my words when we are communicating or reviewing written assignments. She is able to swiftly and with great knowledge guide me to revise my words or thought processes and make them positive. This in turn allows me to recognize how simply words and thoughts can be used to create a particular realm of lifestyle. I am astonished in the abundance of resources and exercises that Judith has for assisting to find insight and answers.
It is with great skill that Judith is able to listen, observe and provide direction so that a person can make their own decisions with her guidance to attain goals. I am positive that it is Judith’s passion to create awareness and provide service through coaching and seminars that makes her so successful. I would recommend her to anyone.
- Julie Hakert (Dental Hygienist)
Judith stands by her mission in life, which is to help others find their joy and purpose. Toward this goal, Judith has embarked on an educational journey that has included attaining her Masters in Education and completing training as a Certified Life Coach. Judith continuously is extending her learning. Some of the additional training that I know she has taken includes EFT, NLP, and a course in Know Your Purpose taught by Tim Kelley.
I have attended two of Judith’s workshops. The first was in September 2007 and was titled D.R.E.A.M. (Destiny Realized at Every Awakened Moment). The second workshop was a series of four 2-hour trainings on goal setting. As a facilitator, I found Judith to be well prepared and organized. She presented comprehensive material in a fun and understandable manner which I thoroughly enjoyed. I believe it is important to note that the classes were comprised of group of people from diverse backgrounds and ages. Judith was able to connect to each of them with humor and style.
I highly recommend Judith for your organization. If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to call me.
- Jan Bergman (Social Worker)
Wow, that WAS a great session and I think you are DA BOMB. I have been doing my affirmations and already it has made a difference! Amazing! All these years I have never done any before. I will get your book as soon as I get the rent paid on the first! Thank you SO MUCH for your help, and I know it's only the beginning! Take care and I'll be in touch!
- Deb (Educator)
I thank you for taking me on as a client in my time of transition. At a time in my life when I seemed to have a million things going on at any given time, and not sure how to prioritize my next move, you helped to guide me. I sincerely thank you and would recommend anyone that needs a little gentle guidance to turn to you!
Thanks a million!
- Audrey Tappan (Life Coach)
Her personal attention to your needs are well addressed with compassion, asking the right questions' and not deviating from the program designed for you. She is a true dedicated "guide" looking out for your best interests. I highly recommend using Judith and Wise Heart Coaching for your reaching your personal life's goals.
-Debbie Sasser (Solopreneur and Queen of her Red Hat Group)
When I first heard about "Hypnobirthing" I was a little skeptical.
No pain during birth? No medication? Can it be real? Thanks to Judith I was able to achieve a beautiful, PEACEFUL and painless birth. She taught me how powerful my mind was and helped me feel confident for this beautiful birth I had planned. When I first walked into Judith's office I felt completely scared every time I thought about giving birth, and after a couple of sessions I felt EXCITED for the day of my birth to come! I cannot recommend her enough! 🙂 If I decide to have more children in the future I will definitely be using the techniques that Judith taught me again! JUDITH YOU ARE AMAZING! - Jissel D - Nursing Assistant
Judith Auslander has a tremendous cache of skills to bring to coaching and hypnosis. This lady has walked the walk and can meet you at your level, whatever it is, and guide you to where ever you choose to go!
She is practical in addressing issues and down to earth in her approach. She is a friend, confidant and mentor all in one professional delivery. She loves her work and her clients and it shows. She is dedicated and committed to getting YOU where, and who you want to be. Her companion Riley simply adds icing to the cake! They make a great team and she welcomes you to be a part of that as you journey towards your goals.
She walked me through a very dark and stagnating time in my life. In my 60’s, ended a long-term relationship, have a chronic illness, financial issues, not happy where I was living – it was all of life starring me down with little initiative to move forward or knowing how or in what direction.
I took a chance and called for a free introductory visit. Not sure I had the motivation to follow through, Judith knew almost instinctively where to shine her light so I could see to move forward. I am excited about my new life and am eternally grateful! Can’t say enough good things here – highly recommend!
Thank you Judith and Riley
-Connie Brindell (Student and Independent Sales)
During hypnosis with Judith, I got to the root of and dissolved problems that were both present and buried deep down in my life. Because of this, I watched my life positively transform faster than I could have ever expected, and I continue to experience spiritual and mental growth in myself even after finishing my sessions. I've resolved inner issues, learned how to deal with my emotions, and changed my perspective on life to one of positivity, hope, and acceptance. At only 18 years old, I now have the inner strength and wisdom to begin the next chapter of my life with confidence and happiness. Hypnosis with Judith has truly changed my life.
- Maddie (Student)
I experienced hypnosis with Judith and have enjoyed multiple results. I notice that by letting go of things I was told int he past about myself that were negative or limiting, that I am feeling free of blocks that were holding me back from being successful in my business. I feel a lot more ready to move forward with my business, more hopeful and even excited! Judith is an accomplished coach, hypnotist and healer. She delights in helping others be all that they can be. Thank you Judith.
- Marilyn (Massage Therapist)
The round room really allowed me to have a place I could safely deal with my issues. When I started letting go of the things I had been holding on to for
years I began to see myself as powerful again. What's also great is that I am not thinking about food all the time like I used to.
- Kevin (for weight management)
I had always been curious about hypnotherapy, but never had the courage to try it until I started working with Judith. I knew I had unresolved issues that were holding me back in life, and I was desperate to get to the root of them so that I could start moving forward. Judith provided a safe and nurturing environment and quickly helped me both unlock deeply buried fear and successfully let it go. After just 5 sessions, I am a much healthier and happier person!
- Carrie (in search of career)
I came to Judith for help with stress and anxiety and noticed a difference after just the first session. Judith mad me feel safe and confident during all of our session and I think that's why they were so successful. Hypnosis doesn't magically get rid of negative feelings like stress and anxiety, but it helps you find the roots of those feelings so you can learn ways to manage them and not let them control your life. I'm so glad I was open to trying hypnotherapy. It's one f the best decisions I've ever made.
- Corinne (University Student) Photo of her in Ecuador with anxiety banished.
Judith was a kind, compassionate person that led me to understanding my habit (of smoking). She helped me to recognize why I started smoking and realize different ways to approaching a non-smoking lifestyle. She changed my life and I'm thankful.
- Susan (Production Manager)
When I walked into Judith's office, I had no sense of direction, I doubted myself in every aspect of my life. After Judith listened to my story, we decided that hypnosis was going to be the best option for me experience, in order to heal my heart, body and mind, from anger and fear.
With her guidance, I was able to tap into deep issues that were keeping me from fulfilling my potential, I was able to forgive and let go. Judith helped me see and find my self worth, and helped me transformed my life.
- Ali (Massage Therapist)
"I felt safe and free to be myself while working with Judith. She emanates light and love and I felt truly cared for while in her presence.
Thank you Judith for all your positive energy.
-Dr. Kacy Borba (Naturopathic Physician)
I would wholeheartedly recommend Judith as a hypnotherapist. She is a very knowledgeable, wise coach and very kindly explained everything that was going to take place. She did not give me false hopes or try to mislead me into thinking that the Hypnotic Gastric Band (HGB) would work all by itself and would need my total commitment to the program. I appreciated her quiet method in which she did hypnosis. I did not believe it would work, and the HGB System has worked better than I anticipated and without the usual deprivation that you feel when you diet. I attribute this to the method that Judith used and will continue to tout her praises and will freely give out her name to anyone who has had the same life time struggle with weight that I've had.
P.S. Mary is looking forward to adding her After Weight Release photo as soon as she reaches her goal.
-Mary (Retired RN)
I received so much more than I signed up for. My work with Judith supersedes my goals with overcoming severe anxiety-- It was a revelation of patterns that dominated my life hidden in my blind spots. And I am someone who considered herself quite spiritually in tune. Judith taught me that my evolution will always be an ongoing and ever-changing process, and I opened myself up to so much more about life and its necessary complexities. I gained insight, maturity, perspective, self-expansion, renewed sense of responsibility, and most of all, learning to take care of myself better. I am now so much better at handling challenging situations.
- Natasha (Marketing Specialist and Author)
[Note: When I started working with Pamela in September, she had been completely bed ridden since April 2015. The doctors could not locate any reason why Pamela was not able to walk. She decided to try hypnosis. After 2 sessions, Pamela was up and walking around with a walker. We completed her sessions in November with her goal to get well enough to go back home and to her beloved kitties. As of this posting, she is walking and will be returning home in a week - Judith, December 2015.]
I'd recommend Judith because she is an excellent hypnotherapist and coach. SHE GOT ME UP WALKING! I hadn't walked since falling April 29, 2015. After my second session with Judith I was walking by using my walker. By week 5 I walked out to a small car and got in and out all by myself. Judith is a miracle worker!
-Pamela (finally going home)
The hypnotic gastric band along with a new healthy diet is working for me. I was able to trust Judith as my hypnotherapist, which gave me permission to relax and let go so that I could experience the entire process. Hypnotherapy allowed me to work through many past hurts and anger - to let go. It was amazing to me how much anger I had been carrying around.
- Margaret (Legal Shield Agent)
This class completely transformed me and made my goal setting skills far more effective. I set a goal to have 4 paid sessions a week and to my utter amazement, just 2 months later I have achieved my goal and my business is thriving! Money is coming in faster than I can spend it!!! Judith, your experience and insights with this topic are immense and were very helpful.
-Ben Noble - Noble Awakening
This past Spring I took Judith's Goal Setting class in Beaverton, OR and the workbook she provided the class served as a very helpful instrument towards helping us in not only setting our goals, but in realizing the obstacles and diversions we place in our daily lives which hamper achieving our goals. The book is very fun to read (and humorous as well!), and Judith provides exercises (such as journal writing) which are meant to be thought-provoking and meditative--in that we mindfully consider what is important to us regarding not only goal-setting, but also in life. If you feel you are currently "stumped" or feel stagnant, please read this book!
PS. Violet completed her thesis on time by using the tools she learned in my class. She even added a dedication to the me. I am very touched!
– Violet (review from Amazon.com)
Humor, fun and right on! This book is great for getting unstuck and back on track. I highly recommend this book.
– Amy Gorman (Aging Artfully – review from Amazon.com)
The Power of Goal Setting helped me to take the first steps by identifying what that first step even was. During the entire class I felt surrounded by support. I finally got organized and remembered the power of faith.
- Elaine Williams - Nurse
Judith, between 1 and 5, I give you a 5+. I really enjoy your classes; they give me so much information and knowledge. Your goal setting class reinforced my belief in the coaching process. Finding a focus, setting a goal, planning your small steps, finding support through a coach or team, and then accomplishing your dream.
Linda Rukke Landen, Wind of Change Coaching
Judith has gathered some great resources for setting and accomplishing goals. Combined with her own stories, points of view, humor, wit, and awe - she tells her own experience of goals and we get the benefit of learning from her. It is a joy to read, as well as a great place to go to consider what goals I want to set and how I want to achieve them.
– Joseph Lyons (review from Amazon.com)
The Power of Goal Setting delivers as promised -- giving you the tools and ideas that bring thoughts into action. Ms. Auslander's commitment to success is evident. An asset for any coach, manager, or top performer who wants next-level results.
– Kim Blanquie (review from Amazon.com)
This book is practical, useful, clear and understandable. I have attended the author's goal setting class and she brings to the book the same positive and humorous view that she does in person. This book is well written and worth it--an invaluable tool for those who want to see their goals achieved.
– Marcia Rowland – health care (review from Amazon.com)
The Power of Goal Setting is so easy to follow! The writing is simple, yet precise and clear. I can tell that Judith has specific goals she wants to convey to the readers. I like the fact that she uses so many examples that area easy to relate to, and she has a great sense of humor! It's fun reading! If a reader follows her directions and suggestions, she or he will gain a lot out of this.”
– Yumiko Freeman – acupuncturist (review from Amazon.com)
Judith, it warms me to know that others including you, continue to peel away the layers of our shell to get to the center where the love for ourselves lies. I have gained so much inner wisdom from this class. This class, Fearless Living, was better than all the self-help books that I have read, searching for answers to my life’s hurdles and disappointments. This class taught me the skills to conquer many of the fears that have kept me from living my life in a positive way. I learned how complaining just advertised my fears and by asking myself “How” instead of “Why”, I was able to move into using proactive solutions. It taught me how to put my past at rest and be at peace with my present. I am amazed how this class changed my way of seeing and living my life.
A paragraph in the book really summed it up for me; Fearless living is more than a happy ending. It’s also about fearless beginnings and savoring the thrill of the challenges instead of shrinking from them. Live every moment. Turn loss into gain and find the courage to explore, change, and grow.
I recommend this class to everyone who wants to live without excuses and love without regret. It works! Thanks Judith for all of your insight and wisdom.
- Kay (homemaker)
Judith, Wonderful workshop! Thank you so much for including me. The material really makes you have to reflect, past, present and future. You are a natural teacher.
- Merrilee (Nanny)
I recently completed the 10-week course facilitated by Judith Auslander for the book Fearless Living by Rhonda Britten. I was so comfortable and impressed with the manner that Judith was able to direct us through the aspects of the book as a group and at the same time allow us individually to gain the insight that will improve our lives. For me, recognizing my wheel of fear has provided the method to put a stop to constant negative self-talk and self over-evaluation. Recognizing my wheel of freedom has become a tool to help access the joy in my moments. Thank you to Judith and Rhonda for showing me how to live Fearlessly!
