The longer you wait to improve your skills, knowledge, personal/professional presence, the greater the chance of NOT moving toward your vision.
I help you understand yourself through my proprietary frameworks based on those from the Center for Executive Coaching. I'm a grad of NYU's School of Professional Studies, and have coached internationally. I've been both a corporate executive and student of life.
I'd be happy to speak with you and see if we're a good fit to work together to move your forward.

Working with Jerry was great! Sessions with Jerry were helpful to create clarity on my goals and pinpointing moments where I was mentally stuck. She helped me get through moments that could have been huge roadblocks by using her accountability system as well as shifting my perspective on what is possible.Via
I hired Jerry for 6 months of weekly sessions to jumpstart my business, and I am so glad that I did! She has provided me with the structure and consistency to meet my goals. She has been able to listen to my needs and suggest systems and approaches that work with my personality and philosophy. She is kind, patient and flexible. She responds in a timely fashion to my emails in between sessions, and if I have a pressing issue she is able to provide feedback in real time. She works holistically; she is equally skilled in business matters, and with helping me with personal goals that contribute to a happier life. Her influx of support, combined with her gentle challenges for me to become more self-sufficient with my learning curve, have helped me to develop confidence and grow my skills.Chaya
Geraldine Anathan is masterful in raising the bar on the importance of psychological safety on teams. Using the Google Aristotle project she defines the ingredients to build high performance. Psychological safety is what underpins all other areas. Research from Amy Edmondsons The Fearless Organization backstops why high performance happens. Accountability and motivation are natural outcomes of psychological safety. Geraldine coaches powerful shifts in conversations that illuminate the intrinsic wisdom in teams. The ROI from psychological safety is immediate and enhances lifelong learning in leadership.Brenda Ammon, Prosperity Coach & Author
A single word that describes Jerry is "holistic". She is a consummate professional who communicates using both her heart and mind. As a coach, Jerry brought her reflective style to me which deepened my experience. Her knowledge, confidence, authenticity, and her passion for psychological safety drew me further in. She has inspired me to learn more about myself. Thank you, Jerry!Robin Mukherjee
As a coach myself, in a few places of leadership, the knowledge of Psychological Safety is to me a whole new dimension to coaching and leading. I live in Nigeria. Working environments here don't seem to allow employee a voice other than taking instructions from the boss. Geraldine taught practically the opposite. She made me understand that every work space requires this discipline. A climate where people are comfortable being themselves and free enough to express themselves without any fear of victimization. And allowing PS to thrive results in productivity increase, high level of trust, and cordial respect in the workplace. These, I completely agree with her. My observation as Board Chairperson is this, people are scared of losing their jobs, as such they only trying to align with the chairman's opinion, whether right or wrong. After my session with Geraldine last week, I decided to do one thing, cut off mid-management functionaries, and allowing every member of my organization to reach me directly. I am making some new discoveries as I speak. By Monday this week, it has become clear to me that Psychological Safety, if implemented, has potential for a turn around in any organization. And I give all credit to Geraldine Anathan. PS is a new area for me to explore, and I will recommend it to all leaders of businesses, production establishments, Business Executives, CEOs, Board Chairs, Managers who are desirous of productivity and efficiency at all levels. I am glad I participated. I'll always appreciate you Geraldine. Thank you.Edy Ewoh
My time with Gerry has been truly wonderful, and I fully recommend working with her if you're looking for manageable, tangible ways to change your habits and start setting some life or career goals. During our work together, she has helped me build healthier relationships with friends and family, and manage my career anxieties. She asks thoughtful, important questions that actively involve you in determining the best solutions to your own struggles, which in turn gives you the tools to more effectively manage stress on your own time, in between sessions. If you're looking to make a change in your life, I absolutely recommend booking a session!Leah
I've been working with Jerry as an executive coach for over 2 years now. She's been such a huge help to me personal and to my business. She's insightful and really helps me find the best solution for myself, along with just being a kind and supportive person. She's helped me through some tough times. As a CEO of a small company, it can feel very lonely and it's nice to know that I have a peer who can help talk me through all kinds of situations.Addison Berry
Excellent coach! I have been booking coaching sessions with Jerry for several years now, since 2016. She is very helpful to talk with about a variety of topics, really anything/everything, and helps me to understand how I am feeling as well, to see my best course of action! Checking-in with her helps me to bring my thoughts, feelings, and values into alignment with my actions. She has been a stabilizing force in my life, and I have greatly appreciated her support over the years!Excellent coach!
As someone who had been in traditional talk therapy for many years, I was ready and in need of direct, real-time, constructive guidance and support to make some definitive changes in my life. Jerry's astute observations and her grounded, "down to earth" supportive persona along with her thought provoking (and at times challenging) assignments have helped me to achieve sustainable and positive changes in a relatively short period of time. I highly recommend Jerry and Inner Guru Coaching to anyone who is ready to find and tap into their inner strengths- Jerry will help you get there!Emily S, Physician & Author, NYC
Wow Jerry in just one session I feel as though I've shifted. I have had a good day - thanks to you! Just talking to you lifted my spirits, and remembering that one of my 5 core values is a Positive Attitude has made such a difference!! I am really trying to focus on the positives, and I even thought of more of them. Thanks and I look forward to working with you.Martha F, New York City
Jerry, I do want to thank you for everything so far. With your help I've finally taken the reins of my life. I'm a different person then I was 5 months ago when we started, I can't wait to see who I'll be in another 5 months.Just to name a few shifts: I've found a new found sense of self, shifting priorities more in favor of life and my experiences, rather that just work. I've built an internal self accountability system that I'm actually following because I want to. I feel more confident in myself, body wise, then I ever have and am only at the beginning. I also realize I don't need to be perfect or have the perfect body to be valued.Jason R, Design Firm Owner, New York, NY
I thought I needed help breaking away from my corporate career and forging forward with my new venture (which did happen!)…but what I got was also a saved marriage, a new passion for sculpting, and a happier healthier me. Words cannot express my gratitude. Coaching Works!Susan L, Consultant/Entrepreneur, New York, NY
Working with Jerry has been truly transformational. It’s rare to meet someone who listens with all her being, and Jerry is that person. Her questions are thoughtful and insightful; they challenge and inspire me to think outside the box. Getting from stuck to unstuck is no easy task, and having Jerry as a coach has enabled me to navigate the journey with courage and grace.Thank you, Jerry!!Megan, Ex-Attorney, Awesome Mom, Professional Coach, Boston MA
