Hi there! I’m Pichi. I’m a ICF (International Coach Federation) certified life coach and keynote speaker that helps people get unstuck and find more purpose and enjoyment in their lives.
I’ve dealt with a myriad of personal and family challenges. In fact, I overcame the most difficult thing in my life—bipolar disorder. And there’s more to it.
From not being able to speak until the age of 4 years, to being diagnosed with dyslexia and bipolar disorder, going through five parental divorces, experiencing domestic violence and childhood abandonment, to overcoming major weight gain from medication—I thought it couldn’t get worse. And then I found out I was disinherited by my mother, one of several Coca-Cola bottling heirs and heiresses in her family. I was not even aware of her death until six months after she died.
Passionate About Inspiring Others
The human brain is an acutely complex organ. Healing and unifying the mind is one of the most challenging things to overcome for people who survive personal traumas. While going through the difficult phase of my life when I reached rock bottom, I was able to recreate my mind into something both powerful and thoroughly functional.
Why Work With Me?
I possess skills on both sides of the spectrum, from having a high level of empathy, intuition, and compassion, to having strong logic and critical thinking skills. I’m able to help my clients achieve what they truly desire.
I have a multi-faceted background, therefore I’m able to understand different perspectives. Consequently, I’m skilled at problem-solving on many different levels. My polished communication and interpersonal skills—coupled with my experience traveling and absorbing perspectives from around the world—enable me to relate to a wide variety of personalities and issues.
What makes me unique as a coach is my ability to tap into your inner voice, the voice that may be blocked by all the things you’re experiencing. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stuck, and as if it’s taking forever to find the light at the end of the tunnel, then I will be able to help you.
From my university studies to working in the corporate world for several years in sales and journalism, to becoming a full-time caregiver to my father in his late years, I decided it was finally time to use my natural gifts to help others embrace the full version of themselves.
