As busy professionals we often forget that we're worthy of our dreams and of living fulfilling lives. I help you remember.
You're juggling many roles that are important to you and yet, sometimes you find yourself wishing for something more. You want to reprioritize yourself and what brings you joy, but you feel overwhelmed, or maybe, you're afraid that expanding into something new will mean losing a grip on what you already love, or worse, that you will lose yourself.
This is where Mindfulness Coaching comes in.
Mindfulness Coaching is where life coaching and mindfulness meet. You'll clarify your goals, identify what balance means for you, and you'll overcome that inner voice that tells you why you can't or shouldn't live your best life. During coaching sessions, you'll also identify your strengths, and apply other tools based on the science of wellbeing. Each session incorporates a small mindfulness technique that builds into a practice over time, and will bring you deep sense of peace.
My clients have experienced:
-Reduced stress and feelings of overwhelment
-Rekindling of their passion and clarity on next steps
-More fulfillment in their careers and relationships
-Positive changes in their relationship with money (ie, more minduful spending)
-New job offers and/or new income streams
-Better relationships with their children
-More happiness and joy in day-to-day life
-Increased confidence to launch their business and get new clients
I offer single sessions and discounted multi-session packages. Clients who purchase packages receive a 50-page Mindfulness Coaching Workbook filled with mindfulness tools, self-care practices, and prompts based on the science of happiness.
I believe that coaching is alchemy between coach and coachee; there needs to be a good fit between the coach and the client for the magic to happen.
*I offer a free 30-minute Discovery Call to see if we’re a good fit (también en español).*
I'm based in Washington, DC but sessions are virtual.

I usually think that I have been there done that when I think of coaching and self improvement activities. I was gratefully surprised on how our first session with Paula went and decided to go for seven session package. I can say that our process was magical, and even though it felt as we were tackling issues on the go as they presented themselves before each session, at the end we understood how the pieces of the puzzle came together. At the end, I managed to change perspective on issues that I had been struggling for years if not for decades, and as I changed my perspective, miracles happened and things got resolved. I really liked working with Paula and found our sessions very practical, concrete, yet profound and life changing.Claudia S
I worked with Paula for about three months and on each session her ability to provide insight and mobilize energy within our fields was apparent. I appreciated her perspective and the way she resonated with ones words and I can really say after the work that the objectives I had for pursuing a coaching were met and that I got to experience the magic that surrounds us on a day-to-day basis if we are open to it. Other take-aways that have helped me a lot in my path were powerful mindfulness techniques. Her empathy and professionalism were also aspects that made my experience a very nurturing one. I'm very glad about this choice!!Sofia
At the beginning of this whole experience, I had already been introduced to mindfulness through various casual conversations with Paula, and although I had recognized the obstacles I had to work on, I felt blocked and completely lost on where to start. Paula made me feel so comfortable and was super opened to hear the reasons why I had recognized my obstacle but was dreading working on it. Thanks to her coaching and the various tools she provided in each session, I started to slowly release some of the pressure I was putting around my obstacles and myself. After applying all the tools I was provided with, I am seeing a difference in my attitude towards this issue and feel empowered and educated to tackling any other that may come my way.Sara
I really loved my sessions with Paula! She has a really kind and gentle energy. Paula helped me gain clarity over some issues that were blocking me from moving forward in my business and personal life. She is really perceptive and intuitive and she was a great match for me. I totally recommend her, she is such a gifted coach!Maria Nikolakakou
Paula is such a natural at this work. Within our 5 weeks together, I transformed so much that I feel like I've done 6 months of work. I attracted more clients, a potential partner and greater confidence as we tackled my limiting beliefs. We really got to the core of the issue and I was able to develop the tools needed to handle challenging situations on my own. Paula is more than just a teacher- she's a loving friend. If you're ready to change your life and feel supported every step of the way, work with her!Courtney M
