Hi! My name is Jasmin and I guide people-pleasing overthinkers to understand, articulate and meet their *own* needs.
Reach out or keep scrolling to learn more about working with me.
Is this you?
You are an empathic overthinker who’s stuck in their head and disconnected from their body & emotions (aside from the occasional silent bathroom cry).
You crave more self-esteem, better boundaries and a way to speak up that doesn’t leave you guilt-ridden and with your needs remaining unmet.
You feel like you lost yourself somewhere along the way. Like you are a ghost of yourself and not in the drivers seat of your life.
But no matter how much effort you put into building yourself up, you find yourself feeling disempowered by your job, your peers and even the simplest of interactions with your loved ones.
Your brain is a pretty brilliant super computer and I know you are never short of solutions for others but when it comes to your own life you:
are stuck in analysis paralysis
feel emotionally starved
are overworked and underpaid
you avoid and procrastinate like your life depends on it
plagued by "not enough" fears
don’t know how to ask for what you want and get your needs met in a direct way - impossible!
are leaking energy coz your boundaries live in your head only
feel resentful at one to many loved (and not so loved) ones
you don’t want the same shit, the same thoughts, the same gossipy competitive friends, the same problematic relationship on your plate one more year.
You don't have to go through one more day, week, month, or (let's face it) decade of the same old, same old. Say goodbye to Groundhog day, and take the jump.
Chances are you've already WRECKED your brain trying to come up with solutions, but somehow you are still stuck in a mucky rut.
And dear, you are tired. Depleted. Exhausted. Running on empty.
Hi, I'm Jasmin
After working with life and mindset coaches for 6+ years and creating massive positive changes in my life, and after mentoring women and afab non-binary peeps for 5+ years in my local community, I decided to start my own coaching business in 2019 to empower others on their journey to fulfillment.
But that is NOT where I started: In 2011 I moved from a small town in Germany to big bad LA to marry my long-distance partner of 6 years. I had always had a dream of being an actor too, so moving to Los Angeles combined two heart journeys into one.
Acting quickly led me to the terrifying realization that I was fresh out of self-esteem, barely able to speak a sentence without losing my voice and apparently without the capacity to healthfully tap into my anger or any other real emotion - in the present moment. Well, damn.
I would often experience delayed release. Nearly every acting class, after another disappointing experience of “not getting there” emotionally, I would suddenly have ALL the feelz I didn’t have during the scene on my car ride home!
What was going on? Something was off.
After years of searching for solutions and answers in individual and couple’s therapy, huge and small self-help seminars from San Jose to Florida, Reiki energy healing in Sedona Arizona, you name it… and after $30k+ of investments in self-help programs I finally found the tools that worked to restore my self-esteem as well as my capacity to feel and get in touch with my body: life coaching.
In the comfort of my home I learned to understand what was creating so much tension in my body and how to help myself create momentum towards my goals by making healthier, more intuitive and aligned choices every day.
I’m so exited to pass all this on! <<<<<<
Oh and yeah... some updates and random facts about me:
I can now call myself a TV/Film actress, currently on projects streaming on Netflix and Hulu. On one project alone I got to work with 90% of my bucket-list “actors I dream of working with one day”.
I started my own business with no prior business knowledge or college degree.
Have two step kids in college!
I was the head of a non-profit with 18 committee chairs for a whole year with no prior experience being a boss and we pulled off 6 fantastic fundraisers + a ground-breaking virtual convention with attendees from all over the world. I was also the speaker at many related events.
I left my husband and am able to move forward with so much courage, support and confidence - something I NEVER thought possible.
I am my own boss, set my own schedule and make money despite having a disability that could leave me asleep most of the day.
Speaking of disabilities: I am medically diagnosed with Narcolepsy and ADD/ADHD Combined Type.
Medications: I take Modafinil, Adderall and Wellbutrin. I name these specifically, because I don't want to set any illusion that all my well-being is purely managed by mindset shifts and inner work. I want my potential clients to understand that sometimes the journey of healing and self-care will involve them seeking professional medical care. You cannot heal your "procrastination" if your brain is structurally or chemically unable to access dopamine. (I am not a medical professional and these are my opinions only).
I recently shaved my head like I always wanted to and LOVE it.
I am queer, exploring genderfluidity/agenderedness and am pro LGBTQ+. (She/They)
I am a mixed person of color (half German, half Bengali) desperately in search of a foundation that doesn't look yellow, green or orange. Any recommendations?
My coaching at times will include rants about the effects of the patriarchy, racism, misogyny, ableism and other human rights and social justice issues, as we cannot underestimate their impact on our mental health collectively and individually. I am opinionated about these topics and also eager and open to learning more.
MAKE THE UNCONSCIOUS CONSCIOUS
Unpack the unsatisfying and even harmful patterns in your life, which are based on subconscious survival beliefs and rules you created in childhood.
Understand the source of your pain - the original wounds that you are unknowingly avoiding at all costs and which lead to baffling, automatic and seemingly inexplicable attempts at self-sabotage.
Begin to heal these source wounds and come into a new relationship with your triggers so you can respond vs reenact your pain over and over.
SAFELY REGULATE EMOTIONAL TURMOIL
Reconnect you with your body, your emotions and learn to understand what they’ve been trying to tell you.
Implement self-soothing and emotional regulation techniques that are vital life skills for any adult but weren't taught to most of us.
Create a safe space to be honest and let out all the gunk you are holding in from your relationships out. We are only as sick as our secrets.
SUPPORT YOU IN MAKING PRACTICAL PROGRESS
Support you on your journey to self-empowerment, teaching you how to speak up in healthier and more effective ways so you can actually get YOUR needs met for a change.
Get in touch with your deeper longings and secret dreams, allowing them to become a reality.
Create practical, tangible progress, for example: Realizing your business idea and doing so in alignment with your values, your joy and your needs.
So what is the process? What will we do in the sessions?
I use a blend of styles. My personal and client-favorite is the Internal Family Systems (IFS) approach due to its immediate effectiveness and (if I dare say so) guaranteed paradigm shifts. Think of it as family therapy for you and your inner children! I also use traditional life coaching tools, which centers around reframing limiting beliefs and shifting your focus on taking manageable steps towards your inner and outer goals.
My experience has shown me that there is no cookie-cutter approach that works for all. Good life coaching is highly intuitive and involves me taking cues from your nervous system to determine the direction of the session. It depends on the needs of the client, and their ability and willingness to go deep. That said, there is an undeniable through-line with all my clients, so these are things you can expect in coaching with me albeit not necessarily in this exact order:
I must admit that I was skeptical of “life coaches” before, but after working with Jasmin, I’m an absolute believer. Jasmin gave me the tools I need to get through anything life throws at me and for the first time in my life, I feel so sure that I can not only manage, but do so a happier, more confident woman!
