Chandra, I have never seen anybody understand romantic
relationships as deeply, clearly, and thoroughly as you.
The way you cut through all the complicated
dysfunctional behavior and expose relationships for,
quite simply, what they really are, and what sabotages
them, is amazing. After many years of awakening my
"sleeping demons", everything you say makes so much
sense. I also really appreciate the way you stress the
importance of quality and health in a relationship, as
opposed to just having a relationship for the sake of
having one. Thanks for all the
wonderful, insightful messages. I hope it isn't too late
for me to apply all my new found knowledge to a great
Sincerely, Debbie Herring
Hi Chandra, I am a tremendous supporter, and I think that you are
great at what you do. Keep up the good work!
Just wanted to let you know that I had a major shift in my energy yesterday. The whole respect & self-respect thing was very powerful for me. I feel very solid today. Thank you. Wishing you many blessings today, Josie
Your insight into the soul never fails to amaze me. Happy New Year, David
Chandra - Thank you. You encourage and change the
destinies of so many lives for the good Chandra. You
must feel wonderful inside and when you are ready to
pass from this life, knowing you left it a better place
for families and people---there is no greater
I'm so glad you liked the birth announcement..... We are
SO blessed and are incredibly happy to have Logan in our
lives. The sleep deprivation has been pretty bad- I
think I've had only about 8 hours this entire MONTH!
But, it is worth it. I never knew how amazing my world
could be until I looked into my son's eyes the day he
was born! Live just has a different meaning for me now.
Some days I have to pinch myself. I am working from home
until May 1st and then going back to work at the office
after that once Logan is in day-care. It will be hard-
but something we have to do. Once we are settled and in
a routine- I would LOVE to bring Brian and the baby by
to say "hello." After all- without you- I couldn't have
accomplished any of this.
I hope you are doing well.
Talk to you soon-
"We're so proud of
you...been following your journey all the way. and
loving you as well...your path has helped people to look
inside themselves for the answers and perhaps, along the
way of discovery, has helped to make this world a more
peaceful place to live...isn't that what it is all
about?" CD and Sharon
"Thank you again Chandra! If I may say so you are damn
good at what you do and wonderful company!" Sincerely,
Just a quick note to tell
you how just watching you on TV for the few
minutes you were being interviewed has impacted my life
in such a positive manner! Thank you for the words that
jumped off the set and into my heart. I am so grateful
for the words "you must feel to heal" and I use this
reminder multiple times, daily. Thank you. Thank you for
giving me peace of mind and for helping my eyes focus on
the future, instead of the rear view mirror.

I LOVE your daily lessons! They have helped me so much.
And both your books were wonderful. (Yes, I
trashionalized all the time!) And, good news - my
husband I were getting divorced. I made him read parts
of your books, which were SO us! He has now agreed to go
to counseling for 6 months. In exchange I won't file for
divorce during that time , giving him time to straighten
up. Who knows what will happen during that time, but
both of us are finally happy with ourselves. yay.
Keep up the good lessons! Viva Las Vegas.
My name is Catherine and I'm 45 years old, been married
for 25 years with 3 children (20 ,18 & 12). This morning
I just happened to be watching TV and caught you on the
Daytime show talking about anti-depressants. Four weeks
ago my doctor put me on Lexapro. My family had mixed
emotions about me being on medication but they wanted me
to try it since I've been extremely moody for the last
two years. During these last 4 weeks I haven't felt much
but you put a label on it this morning calling it "flat-line"..which
couldn't describe it better. You are right, I'm not
depressed, I'm sad....with maybe a little anger thrown
So I just wanted to say thank you for being at the right
place at the right time this morning. I'm holding on to
the things you said, I'm calling my doctor for
directions on how to get off this medication before
feeling nothing becomes comfortable. Thank you, thank

To Whom It May Concern:
January 2003, Dr. Jack Guggino, CEO of Guggino Family
Eye Center, engaged Ms. Chandra Alexander as a business
coach to assist us in gaining a more cohesive,
productive working environment. She has successfully
worked with our physicians and administrative staff as
well as participated as a guest speaker to our general
staff. She has proven to be wise, spirited and
intuitive. Her approach is very direct and she gets to
the core of issues quickly.
Since working with Ms. Alexander our staff retention and
morale among the doctors and employees has considerably
improved. We continue to use a more positive,
straightforward, centered means of communication that
has resulted in improving the harmony of our office. We
are able to handle issues in a much more organized and
On a personal note, I have gained personal insight and a
higher level of confidence. If you are prepared to
interact with a very straightforward, direct, wise and
intuitive coach, I recommend Chandra Alexander to your
organization without hesitation.
Paula M. Callahan, Practice Administrator

This is a letter of recommendation for the business and
personal coaching skills of Chandra Alexander, MSW.
Chandra began working with our physician,
administrators, and staff in January, 2003. She was
hired to evaluate and help us resolve several issues.
These included differing personalities and leadership
styles amongst the physicians, communication
difficulties between the owners, administration, and
staff, and general discord in goals and management
It is of interest that we had spent a great deal of
hours and dollars on various other consultants including
some specifically trained in our type of medical
practice and a some with high powered credentials such
as Ph.D.’s. None of these had provided us with the
harmony, organization, team-player approach which we
desired and knew was vital to enjoy and continue to
succeed in our rapidly growing practice.
Chandra was able to QUICKLY and astutely point out the
personality issues and communication problems which were
blocking our team from progressing and working well
together. Her most amazing asset is her ability to
“read” people’s personalities after spending a very
short time with them. She takes a no-nonsense approach
to dealing with issues and very confidently confronts
and addresses the areas which she feels need to be
changed. It is refreshing and encouraging to have
someone be so direct and so accurate in her assessments
of the problems. To follow this, she always has
excellent ideas and suggestions for change and
Our doctors and administrators worked in groups and
individually with Chandra and were left with a much
better understanding of how to work with the various
personalities in our group to achieve our common goals.
Each of us had to make specific changes and understand
how to come together as a team. None of the other
consultants had been able to achieve the results we have
seen since we employed Chandra. Our office now functions
with extreme efficiency and productivity, very high
moral, very low drama, and outstanding team spirit. I
cannot sing Chandra’s praises loudly enough in this
letter. If you are open to her insight, she will bring
it with strength, confidence, and accuracy.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to enthusiastically endorse Chandra
Alexander as a counselor and motivational speaker.
Initially I met Ms. Alexander through my profession as a
trial attorney and subsequently became a client.
Ms. Alexander is one of those rare individuals who have
the ability to touch the lives of those around her in an
incredibly positive way. I believe this stems not only
from her many years of experience as a counselor but
also from the high quality of her character and desire
to help others.
As a trial attorney, I am exposed to many experts in a
broad spectrum of fields. Few exhibit the
professionalism and knowledge within their chosen
profession, as does Ms. Alexander. The dedication she
brings to continually improving herself in her career
and in assisting others as they confront the trials and
tribulations of life is truly inspiring.
In short, Ms. Alexander would be a true asset to any
individual or company who retained her services. I can
say without hesitation she would improve the lives and
work of anyone with whom she came in contact.
Very truly yours,
Stephen A. Barnes, Attorney at Law
