Dr. Ann Wachtler,
as quoted in a San Diego Union-Tribune
I needed someone to mother me through my dissertation," she
says. "It requires you to face up to your demons, you need
somebody who's been through the process... and sometimes you
need somebody to let your hair down with that you don't have to
worry about politically how this will effect your dissertation.
My advisor is a wonderful person, but with Sally I can rant and
rave -- and get good advice."
Dr. Rosie Mills, Director William Hodson Community Center
"Dr. Sally, you have unquestionably earned my respect. I would like to
express my earnest gratitude to you for sharing your innate ability to
always use the right words at key times of my academic journey, especially
when I thought I had reached my peak of despair. Your intervention was
pivotal when I felt isolated and became quite self-absorbed, stranded and
disconnected. Your coaching has been invaluable. The services that you
rendered always seemed to have the human elements of moral and emotional
support. The intelligence and brilliance that you possess and impart through
your coaching techniques have ultimately resulted in the successful defense
of my dissertation. The long process of getting through the seemingly
impossible goal could have only been accomplished because you were committed
to getting me focused. Dr. Sally, may you never extinguish that helpful
Dr. Jan Piraino,
M.S., Spiritual Psychoanalyst, Private Practice
coaching has been invaluable in a number of ways: Weekly, hourly
appointments help to keep me engaged with the work and on track.
Sally continually assists me to create and reassess a realistic
timeline. Each weekly session is devoted to my needs; including
content decisions, emotional and moral support, and the management
of my committee."
about her experience with Dr. Sally...
Dr. Verna Lynn
McDonald, Clinical Professor, University of Redlands
Sally is the only professor I have had in 13 years of University
training who would give her summer to do an internship seminar
with a new qualitative researcher. As the Dissertation Doctor
she is committed, focused, and walks in integrity. I work in excellence
on this dissertation because I have a coach who keeps me on track
each step of the way."
