“Brooke wears many hats and manages them with style and grace. She is a performer, dancer, choreographer, teacher, mentor, student, and friend. By immersing herself in a multitude of experiences, she hones her abilities with great clarity and perspective. Brooke does not sit back and wait for life to bring her jobs or relationships or community—she launches herself toward those happenings with confidence and understanding of where she wants to be, akin to her ability to move across the stage with velocity and control, beginning with the end in mind. Brooke Gessay shines.” – Michelle Fletcher, Artistic Director: Here Now Dance Collective, San Francisco, CA

I am so grateful for the time I spent with her. She is a passionate, authentic human being who is generously giving of herself. I’ll always be a fan!” – A.F., Mentoring Client, San Francisco, CA

“Working with Brooke completely transformed me. She is patient, kind, thoughtful, and insightful. I feel so blessed to have learned from her. She gently guided me through a transitional phase in my life, and showed me how to look for and celebrate the positive while accepting parts that I wanted to change. I came to find acceptance, peace, and a happiness that had long been dormant. I’ve worked with a variety of therapists, and none has had such a positive impact on me as Brooke. She is simply amazing.” – Catherine Hull,
