What Others Have to Say
  • “My retirement coaching with Deborah really helped me prioritize what I needed to focus on prior to and after my retirement.  It was well worth the time and money well spent in order to devise a plan to prepare for the process of retiring. As a result of my coaching sessions with Deborah I had a well thought out transition for my retirement and made the reality of that final day of work a little easier to accept. Thank you Deborah!”

  • “Deborah Williams is uniquely qualified to demonstrate leadership and guidance in a profoundly impactful way.  During my membership in the “Women in Transition” group, Deborah skillfully led us to think anew by utilizing a new awareness of creativity.  My generation of women is looking into an unknown future.  We are pioneering our way to a new ‘retirement’ where no one has gone before us.  Deborah helped me see a future of grand possibilities.”

  • "Deborah Williams is an inspiring, well-organized leader. I met with her Women in Transition group several times and the topics were relevant, and the discussions fun and stimulating. Deborah had done her research and offered both handouts and resource lists for individual follow-up."

  • "The women’s group Deborah began in Seattle was very helpful and comforting as I realized I was not the only person with all these life-changing questions.  It showed me that all of us on the threshold of retirement have the same questions and fears. Deborah is the person who can help calm the fears so you can find answers.  Good luck on your journey.  You will enjoy your time working with Deborah and look back on the hours with fondness.”
