Hey! I’m Sonia. I help first and second generation immigrants stop worrying about work all the time, so they can find more joy in their life.
Listen to my podcast to learn why you feel so anxious about work and how to feel better, so you can make your next career move with calm and ease…
So your job is stable, it pays the bills and it even has some pretty sweet perks. But some days, it just feels unbearable…
🎢 Bosses and supervisors playing musical chairs and constantly changing teams feels like a nausea-inducing emotional rollercoaster
☠️ You know you’re a mature and resilient adult, but there’s always cliques and toxic coworkers that make you feel like you’re in high school all over again
🏆 Despite not always being recognized, you continue pushing so hard that by the end of the day you have zero motivation for hobbies, personal projects or self-care
😵 Worrying about your career 24/7 sucks because it leaves you with little energy to enjoy your life (and your life outside work matters!)
There nothing wrong with you for worrying about work all the time.
In fact, there’s a very specific reason why you feel overwhelmed, exhausted and anxious about your career.
It has to do with your thought patterns, the stress you have in your body, and how you were raised to believe that you had to fight and work hard to survive.
As a 1.5 generation, Venezuelan-Canadian immigrant, I understand the pressure of having to put on a strong face, swallow our feelings, and work hard to get ahead in life…
After all, this is what your parents and some of us had to do in order to adapt and survive in a new country.
The problem lies when you’re way past this stage, but you still feel like you need to hustle and always work more and do more…
When you have a roof over your head, clean drinking water, a system of social support and financial support, many valuable skills and talents, and yet, your mind and body feel as if a lion is chasing after you, because no matter how fast you go, it never feels like you’re doing enough…
You deserve to be fulfilled at work, to feel successful and to thrive in life 🎉
…but you can’t get there while using fear, self-judgement and anxiety as your fuel (and expect not to burn yourself out in the process) 😕
As your career mindset coach, I help you infuse more joy, fun, peace and self-acceptance back into your work and life.
I use a mix of cognitive tools, mindfulness and EFT tapping to help you get rid of thoughts and habits that are keeping you anxious, confused, and exhausted, so you can choose your unique next career and life move, with confidence, clarity and calm.
“I quit my job to take care of my health. I needed a break and I feel better now”
Coaching helped me to stay calmer when I was felling stressed about work. The advice from Sonia were always on point and very useful. I learned to be more empathetic and to let go the need of wanting to control some situations that where out of my “control”. She also gave me some breathing exercises for relaxation and I love her capacity to take relevant notes about the things I was sharing with her.

Coaching can help you navigate stressful work situations better and create new mental and emotional space to figure out what you really want in your life and career, and go after it with courage and confidence (instead of self-judgement and perfectionism) 🍃…
Find your calm.
Find your clarity.
