Coaching with Pooja is the best investment I made last year, by far.

Is this you? 

You’re just not living the life you want, and you’re not sure where to start or how to bridge the gap

You’re tired of being stressed all the time, and you want to cut out the anxiety while still doing great work

You’re wondering if you should quit your job, and you want to be thoughtful and strategic about your next step

You’re working on your next step, and you want some structure and thought partnership to ensure that it will be a success

You’re in the right place.

 I think the biggest transformation is not hating my brain. Now, I work with it and am like, “Oh, right, it's doing this to protect me. Thanks, brain!” I love that I have this relationship with my brain that's like a partnership.

I have more confidence. I advocate for myself a lot more at work. I second guess myself a lot less. I have healthier relationships with my family. The benefits didn't just impact me – they impacted my teams at work and my family at home. And that's pretty much all you can ask for.

I'm a much better partner to my co-CEO. And I feel more present when I'm with my son because I'm able to solve the challenges instead of bringing them into a new space.

I’ve gained the ability to notice when I'm in the more negative thought patterns and to recognize that no amount of bullying myself is going to result in the change I want. I’ve been able to build a more positive, affirming, confidence-building narrative about myself.

People have commented on it – they’ve said “Something's different about you.” My friends have been able to see me blossom and be more positive.

 It's honestly fun. You're working on the most important thing in your life – your goals and your aspirations. And you're doing it in a manner that is not harsh or strict. In fact, it's quite fun.

I offer one-on-one coaching that is custom-tailored to the problems you want to break through, the goals you want to achieve, and the results you want to create in your life.

To learn more about how we can work together, come talk to me! Schedule a free consultation call where we can discuss where you are now, where you want to be, and how I can help you get there.

What kind of coaching packages do you offer?

Lets get a few of your questions answered. 

Quick Q&A


Think of it like the difference between going to a doctor and going to a personal trainer.

If you have an unmanaged mental illness or are below baseline in your mental health, always seek out licensed mental health care.

If you’re functioning above baseline, but you still want to be less stressed, make more thoughtful decisions, and work toward your goals in a structured, consistent manner, a coach can be a great support.

Many of my clients have both a coach and a therapist (in the same way that many people have both a doctor and a personal trainer), and they find the two approaches to be complementary.

What is the difference between coaching and therapy?

Quick Q&A


Check out my Table of Contents page, where I organize all my free coaching and teaching by topic.

This page is jam-packed with tips, tricks, exercises, and processes for killing work stress, getting clear on what you want to do next, and making your next career step a success.

I also go deep on my coaching methodology and how you can apply it to yourself before you start working with a coach.

How can I get a sample of your coaching?

Lets get a few of your questions answered. 

Quick Q&A


First, do you have a burning platform? Do you have a problem, goal, or result that you are determined to make happen? Are you saying: “The time has come. This needs to be solved NOW.”?

Second, have you been stuck for more than 7 days? Has it been more than a week since you’ve taken steps forward and made progress?

If you answered yes to both of those questions, it’s time to hire a coach. I want to help you make progress on your burning platform starting today. And when you have a coach, you never stay stuck for more than 7 days – because we coach every week, and every coaching session unlocks awareness, clarity, and next steps.

 How do I know when it’s time to hire a coach?

Then one day, enter: Coaching.

Specifically, root-cause coaching that blends concepts from psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness into one clean, simple framework that can break down and solve any problem.

It’s so simple, and so insanely effective, that I couldn’t believe no one had taught it to me in all the fancy schools and training programs I had attended!

So that’s what I do now: Bring simple, high-leverage Life Problem-Solving Tools to stressed-out overachievers who want to close the gap between what they want their lives to be and the life they’re living right now.

Let me tell you about my life from birth to 2020.

On the outside: Harvard College. Harvard Business School. Top firms. Fast promotions. ✨The life✨

On the inside: Chronic pain. Binge eating. Relentless stress. Medical leaves. “What is this all for?”
