I am pleased to write this letter of strong recommendation for Fawzya Khosti. She's worked with our son for several months, and during that time, her positive impact has been clear. Fawzya is an out-of-the-box thinker, and is constantly coming up with new ways to help our son. She also excels at listening to him and what he's interested in, and then forming plans to incorporate those interests into what she's likely to work on - from electricity to the human body to space she has a seemingly endless capacity for teaching both content material, but also life skills. She challenges our son to think for himself and to try to figure things out, but she's also always ready with a hint or a suggestion to help him along.
Fawzya has also been a keen observer of our son - she's given us a number of ideas of ways to continue to help him. She's quickly picked up on his personality, his likes and dislikes, his preferred activities, and is able to enjoy those with him while simultaneously expanding his horizons and perspectives.
Perhaps the most important thing I can saw about Fawzya is how much our son adores being with her. It's often said that kids can tell who's a good person and who's not; who's kind and authentic and who's just faking it. When Fawzya rings the doorbell , our son goes running to let her in. His little sister is also often right behind, equally excited to see her, and sit in Fawzya's lap while she and our son are working on something. And no matter how long Fawzya and our son are together, when it's time to leave, he always begs for more time with her.For these and countless other reasons, I cannot speak highly enough and recommend strongly enough Fawzya Khosti. She is a wonderful person and a truly talented coach who's made a significant positive difference in our family's life.

Since our son started working with Fawzya, we have noticed improvements in several areas. Our son is highly intelligent and extremely disorganized, and his grades and attitude toward school had always been very poor. With Fawzya's help, he has learned to plan ahead for assignments; something that he had never done before. He has learned valuable organizational and planning skills that he regularly uses in school and at home. We have seen a marked improvement in his ability to cope at school: staying on top of work, getting assignments completed, and turning them in on time. These are all contributing factors to the improvement we've seen in his grades, and more importantly, an improvement in his confidence in himself and attitude toward school. We highly recommend Fawzya as an Executive Function Coach.
Sincerely, Brad & Lisa H. (Parents of a 13 year old)
For me, thinking specifically about how I struggle with time management helped me call myself out on my tendency to procrastinate while I was studying. I think asking myself those questions allowed me to gain self awareness while actively doing something that may have impeded me from learning.

I was a rock star student in high school. Knowing myself freshman year I would have not taken this class...knowing what I know now I wish I had the opportunity to take this class before I started college.
Christopher K., Arizona State University Student, Class of 2020
The idea of different workshops like these never really appealed to me, I didn't think they would really work. But after just one week I can see and feel the difference in my work ethic and organizational skills. This class gives you real skills that you can use every day.
Amanda P., High School Student - Class of 2019
Fawzya has been an amazing help not only to my son but for me. I have has run ins with schools and teachers on behalf of my son. He has difficulty staying motivated and on task with no support from his school, so I heard about the amazing work Fawzya has done for other kids facing the same problems and had to see if she could help him. She has been working with my son for over a month, she has giving me so much hope. My son listens and follows what she says and seems more motivated. Fawzya is giving him skills that has made him become more independent and want to be more successful. She is also supporting me by monitoring my son so I do not always have to be on him about his school work and other reminders, which takes a lot of stress off of us. I feel like I have someone that is on my child's side for once. I appreciate Fawzya's patience and seeing the best in my son.
Sincerely, Cara M. (parent of high school student) - January 2018
Fawzya is a woman of high standards and is extremely ethical. She is the one to trust. Fawzya has helped me build my professional resume while coaching me in my business. She always follows through with whatever needs to be done and is very courteous when she replies to your questions in a very timely manner. Fawzya has helped me become more organized person. I can recognize my own improvements in my day to day life. My problem solving skills needed work but with her knowledge I can no longer say this is true. You will never be disappointed with Fawzya. I have experienced it all. I highly recommend Fawzya Khosti so do not hesitate to call her. Do it today and you will be better off for it.

Fawzya Khosti has been very helpful by helping me raise my grades, be more organized, assisted in dealing with my dyslexia, and help me function better as a person. And, through Chess has improved my skills to think ahead & memorize strategies. I would highly recommend her.

The class is very informative and helps open your mind to new ideas.
Noah, Executive Function Conference Attendee, July 27, 2019
The start of the school year always proves challenging for my ADD son. Keeping things organized, staying up to date on assignments, and turning in completed work were all daunting tasks. The executive functions aspect of school are the most arduous for him. This is what prompted me, a teacher, to reach our for help. Needless to say, this school year has been a success! My son will be making honor roll because he has this great strategic support and guidance. Fawzya is a blessing!
Gail G. (Parent of 14 year old) - September 2019
My husband and I will be forever grateful for the teaching and coaching Fawzya provided for our daughter during her senior year of high school. Fawzya identified which skills were most important for her to work on and was always encouraging. She communicated well with me as a parent, letting me know what they were working on and she was a huge encouragement to me as well. Advice as to how to become organized or how to attack school work was so much easier for our daughter to accept from a neutral third party than from her parents. In fact, she told us, “If I were middle-aged right now, Fawzya would be one of my best friends.” Michelle C. (Parent of 18 year old) - September 2019
After a minor TBI four years ago, I was still feeling lost. Fawzya has been quickly bringing me up to speed and now I have turned a corner in my life. I highly recommend her services!
Patti H. (adult student) - October 2019
Fawzya is a genius at assisting her clients in achieving their life goals. Before seeing her regularly, I had no direction in life, but she was able to get me on the right track for success. Throughout our sessions, Fawzya has helped me with organization, time management and long-term planning, all which are skills I use in my business and personal life. I highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to get on the right path.
Justin G. (adult student) - December 2019
I have learned so many new tools to help me grow professionally.
Fawzya's techniques and coaching have been invaluable. In the 6-week time of working together we have made a lot of progress. I am so excited to implement and change my business as a result. Definitely recommend her to people who need help with time management and organization. Skills they don't teach in school.
Jackie S. (adult student) - January 2020
I'm a meditation teacher, and I experienced hypnosis for the first time with Fawzya. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I thought it would be something similar to meditation... but hypnosis was SO different! I would best describe the hypnosis experience as something like getting a very relaxing and deep massage for the brain. The theme I did with her was for "deep relaxation," and I came out of the session seriously feeling SO relaxed. My stress and tension melted away from a deep level in my mind. It was incredible. It was so different from meditation. She took me into my unconscious mind beyond thoughts and emotions and gave me a space for my brain to relax- away from the busy-ness of daily life. From my experience, I would say the difference between hypnosis and meditation is that meditation is more for making my energy bright, while hypnosis is more for going deep inside of myself and looking inward. I highly recommend Fawzya!

My 9-year old has been working with Fawzya for 6 months. During that time, I have seen significant improvements in my daughter. There have been improvements with her impulse control and emotional control at home and at school. She has become less anxious at home and at school. Her organizational skills have improved, which allows her to work more independently and be more responsible for her schoolwork. Additionally, Fawzya has been very helpful in working with school faculty and administration to resolve issues and help them understand how to best teach my child. Fawzya has gone above and beyond in being available outside of my daughter's appointments when assistance is needed with impulse and emotional regulation issues at home.
Victoria W. (parent) - May 2020
Fawzya Khosti has an incredible ability to work with people of all ages. Our family has been impressed with her ability to work with our college age son. He is developing a better of self, consistent habits that will lead to success and a happier attitude. She is able to build skills, confidence, and do it in a way that is fun and rewarding. She has helped our son make tremendous gains in a short period of time.
Cynthia M. (parent) - May 2020
Fawzya has helped me with processing speed, memory, concentration and time management. I would recommend her to others.
Wyatt S. (18 year old Student) - June 2020
I saw Fawzya for hypnotherapy 3 times for memory, concentration and processing speed and I saw noticeable improvement in all those areas. I would recommend Fawzya's hypnotherapy.
H. W. S. (18 year old college student) - July 2020
At the end of my sessions I felt like I had tools that would help me in life and in school in the future. They are practical and adaptable and I plan on using them in the future.
Patrick M. (18 year old high school graduate) - July 2020
It is difficult to find someone with all the great qualities that Fawzya brings to her clients. Fawzya is super conscientious, a great listener, cares deeply for her clients, honest, effective, devoted, flexible and accessible. We are so fortunate to have found her!

Sessions with Khosti have been very helpful in my day to day life. I'm a small business owner and I have difficulties organizing or prioritizing my thoughts and tasks. She takes time to assist in helping me manage my tasks. I highly recommend working with her.
Candice Weaver - August 2021
Fawzya Khosti give her clients foundational skills for healthy living!
Patti Hulet - September 2021
I have been able to make far quicker decisions than I was able to before doing the meetings (with Fawzya). Before, during heated discussions and fast paced scenarios (such as driving a car) my brain would get overloaded and I would not be able to make decisions quick enough at all. Now, I am fully capable of doing that.
Owen C. - November 2021
I have been working with Fawzya for a little over a year now and i have notice significant changes. First has been organizing my thoughts. I used to only remember things i wrote down now i can remember things teachers said verbally in class. I’m also getting better at managing my time because of this. This has allowed me to set a high standard for my grades and it has definitely paid off.
Julian T. - January 2022
Fawzya has been a game changer for my daughter, Hannah. The changes in Hannah’s ability to organize her thoughts and problem solve have been amazing! This has also helped Hannah be more successful in school and learn to better focus her energy. The greatest gift has been watching Hannah’s attitude about herself and her abilities change. She now believes in herself and her self talk has become much more positive! She knows now that she can do hard things!
Chris L.- May 2022
Before I started executive functioning (coaching) it was as it everything was cramped into an unorganized drawer. Through multiple, different practices I have been able to start "organizing" the information in my head like a well filed cabinet. Everything is sharper and my grades have improved, the slow but effective process has changed the way that process information; or file it in my head.
