STEADFAST Life Consultant: Jill Medina Elizalde
"I found Jill to be a very supportive, patient, and empowering coach. Unlike conventional counselors I worked with in the past who often view you as a problem to be fixed, she treats you as a person full of potential and purpose. I find my sessions with her to be both challenging and empowering. The sessions helped me find the energy and strategy to find a better home for myself and to apply for a new position in my company."

"Jill has this incredible empathic ability to be able to be really fully present, to get to the heart of blocks, to listen so deeply that in itself provides deep healing. Her guidance is spot on with great tools that open up possibility, insight, courage and wisdom.”
Fine Arts Artist
"Jill’s enthusiasm for my ideas and developments is the spark to starting the fire of my new career path that I needed. Her open heart and wise questions always make me feel safe, strong, and confident in moving forward."
"Jill really knows how to "listen deep" to the client. She catches the subtle nuances that provide the clues and guidance for the next step forward and upward. She is my "go-to" person for when I feel "stuck" in my life. Her gentle, humorous responses pry me loose from my self-made traps, and help me move freely with the flow of my life again. Most of all, her clarity of vision of who I really am, her ability to see the best in me when I am at my worst, and her skillful reflection of that always allows me to come home again to that best version of myself."
"If you want someone who truly cares to help you find your purpose and power Jill is the one. She will help set you on the right path with positive encouragement."
"Every coaching conversation with Jill is like a deep, tender embrace. Jill’s authenticity, genuine curiosity and seemingly boundless compassion creates a safe space where I can simply be myself. Whenever my self-doubt bubbles up, Jill is steadfast, gently reminding me of my values and what I am capable of. During a time when I was building a new career as a life coach, Jill guided me in articulating my life purpose statement, a process that brought me unprecedented clarity and new conviction. Jill’s superpower to make her clients feel understood and valued makes every conversation uplifting and transformative. She is an incredible supporter to have by my side and to anyone lucky enough to have her as a coach!"
" I stumbled into my first session with Jill just to kind of check out the process. I left with some solid working points to move me towards my sacred space! During the session prompted and guarded by Jill she helped to remind me of some pathways to my own sacred space. Suggestions she made were all grounded in her kind assessment of where I wanted to be. I tried out some of the suggestions with delightful results as I stepped closer to the light of my sacred space! Thank you!"
"Hace unos pocos meses que perdí a mi esposo luego de una larga enfermedad. Luego de su fallecimiento me sentí perdida y sin fuerzas para seguir adelante. Sentía falta de confianza en mí misma. Decidí buscar a una coach y encontré a Jill. Jill tiene una enorme capacidad para encontrar y comprender los bloqueos que, en mi caso, me hacían sentir sin ganas de seguir adelante. Fuimos haciendo juntas una larga travesía a través de mi vida y fuimos descubriendo que mucha de mi falta de confianza en mis propias fuerzas provenían de mi infancia.
Este fue un descubrimiento para mí, como destapar un bloqueo que me hacía desconfiar de mis propias fuerzas y necesitar siempre la aprobación y el apoyo de mi familia y amigos. Hoy puedo decir con certeza que el apoyo de Jill me devolvió la confianza y me estimuló a retomar metas que siempre postergué; de las cuales es escribir, retomar clases de idiomas (francés e inglés) y sentirme libre y con confianza en mis propias fuerzas para seguir caminando.
I live in México, the reason I write in Spanish is to support Jill’s vision of Steadfast Life Consulting becoming a bilingual platform."
