I help smart, sensitive high achievers like you get out of your own way. With my background as a licensed social worker, I have the skills and tools to help you let go of perfectionism, communicate confidently, find lasting work/balance, and more.

Something I’ve learned from helping thousands of top-performers — from CEOs to fashion designers and finance execs — is that looking like you have it all figured out does not equate to feeling that way within.

Instead of maintaining the flawless impression you keep up on the outside, let’s take care of your negative self-talk and nagging fears, so that you can stop pretending to be happy and actually feel that way instead.

Improving your inner game doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you.

Even world-class athletes work with coaches to make sure their mental game is as strong as their physical game. If anything, it means that you’re braver than most people who would simply live with unhappiness than work to overcome it.

Many of my clients are more sensitive and emotionally aware than most people. They’re great at serving their clients and bosses, but it can also make overcoming overwhelm and overthinking difficult. You may struggle to say no, take on too much, and be sick of living a life according to other people’s expectations. They work with me because I have the training and experience to push aside psychological roadblocks so you can have the success and peace of mind you deserve.

My Approach

You don’t need someone to just motivate you and remind you to think positively.

You need an experienced coach to help you change deeply ingrained habits and finally get you off of that crazy emotional roller coaster you’ve been riding for so long.

Over the years I’ve helped more than 10,000 high achievers mentally and emotionally thrive, including CEOs of +10,000 person companies, senior leaders, and top performers at the world’s most successful Fortune 500 companies. My clients include managers and executives at Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, HP, IBM, HBO, the U.S. Department of Education, The Federal Reserve, Johns Hopkins University, KPMG, and Deloitte. They come from all over the world–– The U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia. I also coach media personalities, tech startup founders, and entrepreneurs across a broad range of industries (finance, tech, HR, fashion, consulting, non-profit, healthcare, social services, entertainment, etc).

But my credentials don’t define me. You see, I feel your pain as smart, sensitive high achiever because I am one too. I think and feel everything very deeply. I’m a consummate A+, gold star, “good girl” who found herself burned out and miserable because she pursued someone else’s version of success.

Helping high achievers like you master your thoughts and emotions is what I do best and enjoy the most. I started my coaching practice as a way to help other “sensitive strivers” like you cut through stress, develop confidence, and find inner peace.

Why me?

First, the professional stuff:

  • I’m a licensed social worker and also teach Human Behavior in a graduate program.
  • I hold a Masters degree from Columbia University where I trained under top professionals in the field. Earlier in my career, I worked in the lab for one of the world’s leading psychology researchers.
  • I write about psychology for Inc., Women@Forbes, Quartz, and more.
  • I’m an overachiever just like you. I’m a former A+ student and was valedictorian of my college class.

Coaching is about more than just credentials. It requires trust. The personal qualities I have that my clients say enable their comfort and openness to the process are:

  • I’m disciplined – I have a natural talent for bringing structure to complex situations. You’ll walk away from our sessions with practical action steps.
  • I’m an empath – I’m a sensitive person and deeply attuned to your emotions. My clients say I have a knack for getting to the source of problems quickly–and shifting you into action even faster.
  • I’m an individualist – You’ll never get generic, one-size-fits-all advice from me. We’ll craft solutions focused on the exact results you want to achieve.
  • I’m responsible – I value honesty, loyalty, and integrity. It goes without saying that our sessions are 100% private.
  • I’m a giver – I truly care about helping you create a career that aligns with your personality and strengths.

I’m here to help you go from stressed, self-doubting, and overwhelmed to confident and in control of your career.

But don’t take my word for it. Read my clients’ success stories and what they have to say about working with me.
