"Denika Carothers is extremely sincere and I felt like she was so honest and real with me, which I feel made us connect so much. She connected to me and I was so open and clear with her during my counseling. She is a guiding light and an angel. She helped me focus and remember things about myself that I forgot of, and shed so much light into how I can continue to heal and live my life to the fullest. Some people are gems, and Denika Carothers is a diamond! I wish more people knew about her. Her insight was amazing. I feel like she fixed so many of my previous ways of thinking and made me a positive person. She gave me confidence and coached me and my husband and helped our marriage, and I can never forget how much she has done for us. My husband clicked with her and my family loved her. These days people are so hard to click with and it was a rare encounter to find a counselor like her to lift all of our spirits up. She brought us all out of darkness and we have all benefited, and we're now working together to achieve peace, love and happiness towards each other.
She helps you towards growing emotionally and spiritually by encouraging you. When she told me to live life with purpose, she helped me find out where I needed to build myself to reach my goals. She helped me during a time where I was battling with addiction and she was always a phone call away. She cares for her clients... she goes above and beyond what you will expect someone to do. Her advice was full of compassion and she helped me mature and see that there was hope in my life, and I felt more confident.
She's expressive and loving and will be honest about everything. She came along with me in my journey and I'll always have a special place for her in my heart as I am healing and growing spiritually and emotionally. I want to continue with her and I will always keep in touch. She has become so close to my family, husband and myself. I look up to her as a Life Coach and wish there were more sincere people like her who help you in your journey when you're at a low point. Her time with me was extremely beneficial and she was honestly the best counselor I have met. She's unbiased, non-judgmental and completely down to earth. She will go beyond what you expect for her to help you with. I am living a better life because of her and she's helped my marriage issues work out. She helped me fix myself and like I said was a part of my journey, not jut someone who listens. She is capable of understanding... she is very talented. She is understanding and helps you solve your problems. She taught me to have a higher tolerance towards everyone!" - Sarah Zaman
"Your speech, C.H.A.N.G.E. - The Catalyst for Success, was a powerful hit with our Mary Kay Sales Directors and Consultants group. As you know, the Mary Kay attendees were very attentive and excited, and they always expect a lot. Satisfying them is no small challenge.
Your speech received rave reviews, both the day of your presentation on Thursday, and the days after.
I know by speaking to individuals that you will go out of your way to assist them personally and that means a lot to me and our Mary Kay reputation. Most of all Denika, I think the Mary Kay ladies really appreciated your willingness to share your own personal experiences from the heart, which is rare and beautiful. As you pointed out in you talk, all of us face life transitions and your story, so vividly told, gave all of us the encouragement to move ahead in our lives and not to fear change.
"We have had some remarkable speakers at our Thursday Night Success Training, but yours was certainly the most professional speech we have had. We plan on referring you to others. With thanks and best wishes." -Cynthia D. Gabriel, Mary Kay Director
