A Note From Nesreen

Throughout my professional life, I have always been committed to supporting others, especially during the most difficult of times. In 2013, my sister passed away suddenly. This was a profound loss and to say I was in shock was an understatement. Throughout this period, I found myself questioning how I wanted to spend the time I had left on this planet, and how to use my time and energy to live a fulfilling life and help others do the same.

Stay connected.

Testimonials

It's hard to describe how much working with Nesreen has helped me. I’ve spent over four years searching, traveling the world to find myself. After less than two months of working with her, my search is over. Nesreen helped me figure out exactly what what I'd lost in 2011 and what was still missing inside me. Thanks to her, I can enjoy my life again and even more, I'm excited to pursue my medical license to work in New York. Nesreen's coaching is unlike anything I've experienced: she listens to what I say (or don't say) and helps me figure out what I really want. She's honest, straightforward and challenges me in the best ways. It's only been a couple of months but already feel like I’m a new man. For the first time in many years, I feel a sense of purpose. Nesreen's coaching has been very unique and insanely helpful. I can't recommend her highly enough!​

Nesreen changed my life! The dream I had been putting off for over 10 years to live and work overseas would still be just that--a dream--without our work together. She helped me identify my core values and desires and then build a plan according to my big life goals. I'm literally about to sail into my new life next week and couldn't be more excited. I can't wait to see what possibilities are ahead! Thanks, Nesreen, for not letting me wait another year!

I cant emphasize enough how important it is to value yourself enough to invest in your personal greatness! I learned this and many more transformative lessons from my experience with Nesreen. Not only did she help me achieve my goals faster and with precision focus, she helped me get unstuck, and held me accountable to what I said I wanted for my life. I always felt she was listening and really connecting with me. Nesreen always encouraged and believed in my success especially when I thought I couldn’t. Most of all she offered me insight into myself and the tendencies which no longer serve to propel me to the next level. I rave about how Nesreen has transformed my life for the better to all my friends and coworkers when they notice the difference in me.

My experience with Nesreen was very uplifting and inspiring. Having no previous knowledge or experience with life-coaching, I was nervous to try it out, unaware of how it would affect me. Nesreen easily calmed my nerves and put my fears to rest. Her unique approach to comfort and challenge me in my life and my goals has inspired me to progress in ways I had not anticipated, but have valued and appreciated. She is very generous and giving with her time and attention and I have really loved the opportunity to work with her as much as I know she has enjoyed working with and helping me.

I admit I was a cynic. When my friend gave me Nesreen’s number I thought, ‘I don’t need a life coach! I got my stuff together.’ I’ve got a good job and after 12 years and 2 beautiful kids, my relationship was strained, but okay. So, my cynicism didn't let me call her until everything hit the fan. And, I'm so glad I called! After working with Nesreen, my relationship is better than it’s been In YEARS (who knew 100% responsibility would unlock so much with my husband & kids?!). I’ve completely reignited my relationship with my husband--beyond what I thought possible. I highly recommend Nesreen. She’s a fantastic life coach & turned this cynic into a believer!

Nesreen has a down-to-earth yet magical touch. In Nesreen’s able hands, I was able to recognize complexities of bereavement too often overlooked and she provides a true methodological framework within which to address its intellectual and emotional dimensions. Her approach is well conceptualized and comforting. My work with Nesreen extended beyond the perimeters of my grief. In processing my loss, I found that what we discussed in sessions expanded into other areas of life and allowed me to move forward to establish new priorities in life. I cannot imagine any more able a guide than Nesreen and cannot recommend her strongly enough.

Nesreen was a shining light for me, during a particularly unsettled and stressful time. She has a warm, calm nature, yet was firm at challenging me if I engaged in negative self talk. She helped me to stay on track and keep sight of my priorities. She was very insightful in getting me to see my authentic attributes the way others view me and to become increasingly self aware. She helped me to be accountable, with my business and in supporting my family while dealing with the stresses of relocating. Working with Nesreen is a valuable experience in mindfulness and self growth that I highly recommend. ​

NEW YORK, NY

I had a true broken heart and entered a depression. A friend who knew Nesreen recommended her as a coach, because therapists were not helping. What can I say, I’m a new person thanks to her techniques and tools. Nesreen was not an average coach. She went way above and beyond in her duties. She truly truly cares from her heart and was always on call whenever I needed. She was a true partner who held my hand down the road of recovery. I will never forget her goodness!

After my divorce, I had given up. I felt broken and exhausted. The mere thought of be-ing in another relationship terrified me. I told myself I would spend the rest of my days alone. Then, I met Nesreen. When we started working together, I felt victimized by my ex-husband and thought I would never be able to forgive him. Over time, I not only learned how to forgive him, I learned how to forgive myself. I learned to see some of my unhealthy patterns in relationships and as I started dating again (yes, I finally started dating), I was able to change some of those patterns. I learned to love myself and allow myself to be loved and pampered. A few years after my divorce, I’m in the most wonderful, healthy relationship where I can put myself first and not feel guilty about it. None of that would have been possible without Nesreen’s coaching!

I’d never even heard of Grief Recovery Coaching until a friend connected me with Nesreen. I’d been seeing a therapist and gone to a few support groups, but never felt they were truly helping me feel better. I finally decided to hire Nesreen and I’m so glad I did. Working with her, I realized how I had been avoiding my grief for so long by working crazy hours and pretending I was okay. She gave me concrete tools that helped me deal with my loss. The process was simple, easy to understand, and each week, I began to feel better, work less, and start to see my friends again. The coaching she provided was warm, gentle, and yet firm when needed. Somehow she never said the wrong thing or made me feel less of a man because I was grieving. I always felt comfortable speaking with her and felt she truly cared about me and my recovery. Thanks to her, I’m back to the man I was and have the tools to deal with future losses. Much love to you, Nesreen!

Nesreen is a life, business, and grief recovery coach who I have had the pleasure - and benefit - of working with as a Coach and a community leader. Her commitment to supporting clients to identify the limiting beliefs and patterns that are keeping them from moving forward is powerful. She speaks truth and gives voice to the uncovered messages we may not hear ourselves and her coaching always inspires spirit, connection, play and growth!

Nesreen and her work are a gift to us all. I came to her several years ago with a desire to get out of my own way to make my work happen in a sustainable way. Nesreen was supportive, kind and also pretty no nonsense about the many yarns I would spin as to why I couldn't do xyz. Her steadfast attention and focus helped me get down to deeper levels of myself that I didn't even know were there. As a result, my business and life are the best they've been yet and I'm only getting started. Thank you, Nesreen!!

Nesreen is a caring, skilled and wise coach. My weekly sessions with her have helped me find a path forward that is full of possibility and free of old encumbrances. While it is a path of my own making, I would not be on it without her help. I am truly grateful and recommend her highly.

Leslie T.

Working with Nesreen has been completely life transforming. She has helped me take myself apart, see how I work and put myself back together in a new, improved way. The combination of her wisdom, insight, growth minded strategies and wonderful sense of humor make working with Nesreen one of the best decisions I have ever made.
