My coaching experience with Dr. Jake Porter was eye-opening and impactful. Dr. Porter helped me gain insight into my blind spots and habits that had been holding me back. I had a firm plan of action and I felt encouraged and confident that I could reach my goals at the end of our work. He demonstrated tremendous insight, caring and guidance while keeping me focused on my goals.

Jake Porter and I studied at The Doerr Institute together. During our coaching session I found Jake to be a very thoughtful listener, picked up on the hidden issues that I had not seen, and most importantly, never judged negatively. Dr. Jake has a natural coaching style. His ability to put his clients at ease. He can discuss even the most delicate or painful issue with extraordinary empathy.
