Featured Member Business of the Month September

Terri Butaud By Design Coaching and Personal Development
“By Design Coaching and Personal Development was created for the insightful woman with a vision, who wants the right people on her team. ”.
Life is CHANGE. There is no getting
around it. And some of our changes
work us over more than others.
Personal life coaching for women is
uniquely suited to support women as
we move through the various
remarkable transitions of our lives.
Anxiety, boundaries, body image issues,
relationships, communication, Imposter
Syndrome, caregiving, self-care and
grieving are a just some of the subjects
that come up.
As an RN of 37 yrs with a specialty in
Women’s and Family Health, I have
spent many hours with women of all
ages. I have done a lot of listening,
learning, and coaching. I’m passionate
about  partnering with adult women
and walking with them through
the muck and mess that slows us all down.
Honest communication, building on
strengths, accountability, and allowing
each woman to own her outcome work well.
You ALWAYS have options!
