Hi, I’m Caren.
I coach and empower heart-centered women to overcome patterns of self-doubt, anxiety, depression and stuckness that keep them from feeling good enough and fulfilling their dreams.
More than a decade ago, I embarked on a journey toward healing that began with my first yoga class. Now, I get to tell people that I came to yoga because of depression and I came out of depression because of yoga.
But that’s only a small part of my story.
My yoga and meditation practice shifted my perspective, retrained my brain and completely changed my life’s path – including my career.
Growing up, I knew I wanted to be a writer. That led me to a career in digital journalism and social media strategy in the health, wellness and lifestyle industry.
I was a high-achiever in high-stress environments, constantly striving toward perfection and becoming my “best self,” which led to massive burn out and reevaluating what mattered to me.
So I took a leap, became an entrepreneur as a yoga and meditation teacher, and got the help I needed to finally overcome my struggle with feeling like I was never good enough.
I’ve now taught and coached thousands of people — in person and online — to grow their capacity to hold the fullness of life. That means the light and the dark.
Because the truth is, life can change at any moment, but what you can do is guide yourself to respond with more trust, ease and joy.
When you learn how to consistently live from your heart, rather than your head, you’ll embody the confidence, creativity and clarity you need to bring your big dreams and goals to life.
I believe that the events of our life aren’t happening to us. They’re happening for us. Everything has within it the seed for growth and personal evolution.
I believe that you are whole and perfect and there is nothing wrong with you.
My job as a coach is to help you realize that for yourself so you can break free from anxiety, self-doubt and whatever else is holding you back.
To learn how to do this, register for my FREE video masterclass called “The 5 Shifts High-Achieving Women Make to Overcome Self-Doubt and Anxiety.”
Hope to see you there!
