HI! I’m Chaya (pronounced “Hiya”) and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a trained Life Coach. My professional and personal experiences have allowed me to witness firsthand the innate resilience that human beings possess, no matter their past or current circumstances. I am particularly passionate about supporting women of all ages as they navigate this crazy thing called LIFE. I also have a flair for helping aging adults and their loved ones to navigate the ups and downs of older adulthood (see the page First Class Aging for more info on that!)
I have done many things over the course of my life including being an elementary school teacher, childbirth educator and doula, a Music Together teacher/Center owner, and a Nurtured Heart Approach parenting and educational coach. I am a Jewish educator, mentor and speaker, and I am a living kidney donor! The accomplishment I am most grateful for is my marriage to my husband Seth for over 30 years and our 6 children (5 plus our son-in-law!) ages 16-26.
Clients say I am authentic, easy to talk to, spiritual and funny. I see counseling clients in Florida and Colorado virtually and coaching and consulting clients virtually or in person. I see clients in Colorado virtually, in my home office, in their home or in the park for walk-and-talk visits. When I am not busy counseling, coaching or consulting, I can be found doing yoga, running, spending time with the family, or singing out loud!
I would be honored to work with you!
