Susie Castellanos Hansley, Ph.D.
I help high-achieving women conquer anxiety and imposter syndrome in order to build their dream lives.
More About Me:
Hi, I'm Susie! I'm from San Diego, am a first-generation Mexican American, and was the first in my family to go to college.
I always loved learning and teaching, so I pursued my Ph.D. in English at Brown so I could become a college professor. I wanted to help people recognize the power of language to shape our views of ourselves and of others. But I suffered from extreme bouts of imposter syndrome and left my tenure-track job.
Eventually I found myself living in Durham, North Carolina, met the love of my life, and started new careers, first in technical support and then as a contracts and proposals writer. But I found myself unhappy with my career choices and wondered what I was meant to be doing.
Through life coaching, I was able to:
- Stop second-guessing myself
- Discover my own self-worth
- Heal my past childhood trauma
- Create a life and career I love
My mission is to help you become empowered in every area of your life. I will help you build the self-trust, self-confidence, and self-love that will serve you in not only getting what you want, but in becoming the contribution you are meant to be in this world.
