"As an emotional adolescent, I had many feelings I was unable to express. By holding space and being an open listener, Zetta helped me to unpack a lot of those feelings and learn how to express them both verbally and physically (through dance). I am forever grateful for the assistance in finding my voice and how to use it."
"During a fragile, but very formative time in my life, Zetta was an inspirational mentor and educator. Her diverse background as a professional performing artist and healer, provided a practical ‘East meets West’ philosophy. Her established connections, insight, and passion lead me to a huge new opportunity, simultaneously providing me a solid roadmap to approach my career! I’ve enjoyed twenty-five years as a professional performer, director, author, and educator, and Zetta was a vibrant piece of unlocking my potential."
"Zetta is incredible, she has changed my life in a million ways. She had the ability to see what I really needed and then coach me on tangible ways to reach my goals. Her kind, honest approach was both comforting and challenging. Zetta is a gifted healer and coach while using her intuition as a guide. I am forever grateful for the work she has done in my life and I continue to feel her presence in my life."
"From a young age, Zetta has mentored and nurtured many artists, including myself. As a teacher she encouraged me to embrace my artistry in every project and passion. I was able to identify personal strengths and areas for growth while working with Zetta. I cannot say enough good things about my time with her and the lifelong friendship that has developed over 2
“Zetta is an encouraging educational mentor who started with me at a young formative age and will continue to remain one of my deepest confidantes. Her ability to create an unconditional, safe and creative environment allowed me growth you can’t recreate in another setting.
It takes a wisdom to hold a judgement-free yet directional space for someone else and Zetta does this.”
“Zetta’s expertise as a Heal Your Life Coach and Career Coach influenced me in a multitude of ways in achieving goals. I honestly didn't know where to begin on this journey. With Zetta’s knowledge and expertise, she helped me achieve my goal of being a professional dancer. Together we mapped out detailed career steps. I am humbled to say, I successfully achieved this goal and currently I’m a Company Member of Elements Contemporary Ballet in Chicago. Thank you Zetta for mentoring me and helping me achieve my career goals!”
Through the years of working with Zetta I learned many valuable life skills that set me up for success in my personal and professional life. She always helped me feel safe and valued, and gave me space for my opinions to be heard. I can honestly say that some of my higher reasoning skills, patience with others and understanding of multiple viewpoints all came from Zetta’s approach to interpersonal communications. With her guidance I can now stand up for myself, have my voice be heard and practice patience, kindness and understanding with others. Zetta helped me find the confidence within myself
"Zetta has been instrumental in many of my life changes. From moves to career changes to family life issues, Zetta has been there for me through it all."
“ I was able to find my career path through the guidance and life coaching of Zetta Alderman. She is an amazing mentor, with the ability to help guide so many people in their desired career path. I am currently attending Lesley University, where I am aspiring to become a Dance Movement Therapist and Licensed Counselor.”
"I love working with Zetta so much! She has helped me with so much in my life and truly helped me grow into a better person since I've started seeing her. I've never had a better connection with someone!"
"After years of traditional therapy, which was truly helpful for a time, I hit a wall. When I started working with Zetta, she was able to guide me to the heart of a matter much quicker than anyone else I had worked with and find actionable ways to move forward. She encouraged me to take the steps I already knew inside I wanted to but felt I needed permission to. The work I have done with Zetta has had a lasting impact and I am very grateful for it."
"In the past 20 years, Zetta has been my dance teacher, director, choreographer, cast mate, mentor, collaborator, friend, and second mother, and she has somehow cracked the code of being the best at whatever hat she has on. The level that she expects of herself is only matched by what she expects of and brings out in others; Zetta's guidance is the kind of calling that goes beyond learnable skill - it is an innate part of who she is."
"With a Gentle yet firm hand, Zetta is an innately gifted guide that never ceases to help me find my way even in the bleakest of times."
"Having known Zetta for more than 20 years, I have seen this incredible woman bring magic into this world in so many ways. As an instructor, mentor, performer, and nurturing second mother, the amount of joy and positivity that she is able to conjure out of anyone is nothing short of incredible. Her advice and encouragement are something I always treasure."
