You have the career, the degrees, the job title, and the comfy salary.
Your personal life is decent - you have a solid group of friends and a partner that makes you happy. You eat as well as you can and take a fitness class here and there. Your self-care practice is at a 6.
But you wish it was a 8 or 9, and a consistent part of your life-style.
You know it’s important but work and life oftentimes get in the way. Self-care can wait ‘til the weekend. Or your next vacation. Or, whenever you remember.
Hell, sometimes you don’t even know what self-care would look like for you!
You’re frustrated because this is the only part of your life that you can’t seem to figure out, and it’s holding you back from feeling and being your best.
I GET IT BECAUSE I WAS YOU.
As the hard-working, ambitious woman that you are, self-care almost feels wrong. And selfish. You’ve worked hard to kick ass professionally but haven’t quite figured out how to do the same in your personal life. And you try really hard. Every so often, you commit to a self-care practice and take cues from Instagram on what to do: face masks on Sundays, meal prep, read a few self-help books, pray and meditate. But then a work deadline approaches and the pressure is on. You eat out for lunch and dinner, sleep 4 hours a night, spend your Saturdays putting the finishing touches on that work presentation and your Sundays sleeping most of the day. You figure you can try self-caring again another time…
…AND SO BEGINS A CYCLE OF YO-YO SELF-CARING.
Self-care coaching puts an end to that once and for all. You’ll get personalized support in developing a practice that works for you, your lifestyle, and is sustainable long-term. That means that it will evolve as your life does. Part of the reason why yo-yo self-caring happens is because you don’t get clear on what truly matters to you nor do you examine the beliefs that keep you stuck in this cycle. You can stop feeling like you’re on a hamster wheel, and I can help you.
During our work together, rooted in dialogue, you will develop an authentic practice that makes you feel whole, well, and works uniquely for you. This includes self-care rituals, journaling prompts, affirmations, and other tools that fit you and your lifestyle. I will support you every step of the way, giving you space to be yourself and creating a container to hold you as you dig deep.

WHY I’M THE SELF-CARE COACH yOU NEED
A few years ago, I thought I was at the top of my game - I was an Ivy League-educated woman of color with a master’s degree, a passport full of stamps, and I a lofty title. My resume read like a dream: prestigious fellowships, schools, titles, and organizations. I thought I’d made it, until I suffered a frightening and debilitating panic attack that shook me to my core. I could not figure out how that could happen to me since I thought I’d made all the right moves in my life.
I quit my job without a plan and gave back to myself in ways that I’d never done in three decades.
I did not know what to do with my time or myself, but I did know I wanted to finally feel authentically good, whole, and well. There was a lot of trial and error as I got clear about the type of life I wanted to live, and how I was going to nourish myself in the the process. That journey led me back to my true love - helping others heal - while living intentionally, in my purpose, and with a genuine self-care practice that evolves as my life does. Today, I am the self-care coach I wish I had a few years ago.
Outside of my personal experience, I have been successfully coaching individuals in professional settings for over 5 years. My education and training complements this practical experience, and helps me help clients get results. I hold a bachelor’s degree from Columbia University, a masters degree from CUNY Hunter College and am finishing a second masters degree from Columbia University. In addition, I am a trainee at the Ackerman Institute for the Family, the country’s premiere training institute for relational therapy.
